Shopping Tote

About a month ago I put my name in for a shopping tote swap on Down to Earth. I was matched with Kim (my swap buddy) from Ontario. Since we were matched, Kim and I have exchanged emails and gotten to know each other. She has a very nice and interesting blog. I check her blog daily to see what's new in her life.

On my drive home from work this afternoon I had a feeling that I might have a parcel waiting for me in our mailbox... and I did. Look at the beautiful shopping tote Kim made for me. Kim - you should be getting yours any day now. I love the quilt-like star on the front and it even has pockets inside. That girl has talent and imagination. Thanks Kim, I love it.

And as if the tote wasn't enough, she included treats...

Treats up close... a cute little mesh bag with crystals (I too love crystals Kim), sea shells to add to my collections, a piece of nice fabric that I will be using on a special sewing project and Kim notes in her letter ''I don't know if you love chocolate or not'' - I LIVE FOR CHOCOLATE !!!!! can't wait to sink my teeth in that thick chocolate bar.

Again Kim - thank you very much for everything. I love handmade gifts. I hope we keep in touch even though the swap is over.
