Saturday....while I was cooking dinner.....a package arrived from Mercedes!! I knew it was coming, but I am always so surprised at how freakin fast it gets here!! I was able to open it, so we could take a peek, but told the kids we had to wait till after dinner to open all her little packages!! Cora made me promise I wouldn't snoop, seeing as I was keeping the box in the kitchen with me, lol!
LOL.....we ALL opened our stuff so quick after dinner, I forgot to take pictures! The kids each got a writing tablet and the cutest magnets....And Cora got a pink bracelet from Liberty! Now....you know how kids are~all their treasures have now been scattered about.....But not mine:)
I kept everything in the box so I could share them with you! First we have a mini scrapbook!! She used my tutorial to do these, And I must say they're Awesome!!!
I really got choked up when I saw the picture of me and my Mom in it.....
And got even more teary eyed when I saw the picture of her and Liberty in it!!! How special is that!!! ;)
She also sent lots of other little gifts!! There's a table with pink flowers painted on it....ribbon....basket making stuff, a little pineapple, coconuts, dragonfly charms!
Here's a picture of the canisters up close. My favorite is the pink one with the dragonfly!!!
Next we have a pink basket that will go in Katie's Corner, and some crates that are absolutely perfect! We both love Moulin Rouge!! ;)
And look at this birdhouse! And that tiny nest! Awesome!!! There's also another canister with a carnival tent on it....
In this next picture if you look at the middle, you will see 2 house pillows!! I'm thinking they 'll go to live in Cora's living room!! All the other stuff in the box is what she used to wrap everything. She's made some really cute bags with a tutorial I posted awhile back. I'm So proud, LOL!!! And I saved the wrapping paper and that weird white (packing)stuff in the bottom right corner....Don't know what it is, but I have fallen in love with it's texture!!!
And last but not least...I have 2 cards! The little girl is a print of a painting her sister painted, I asked Mercedes if I could shrink it down and copy her idea of making a mini card out of it??! ...And the pineapple card was to Cora. I have a bunch of paper things now with pineapples on it.....I'm going to have to figure out a way to shrink them and make something for the kitchen with them....maybe a collage??
Thanks again Mercedes! As Always, it has been so much fun trading with you!!!!! :)
