My Spring Supply Swap Goodies

I recently participated in a Spring Supply Swap organized by The Shabby Chic Cottage.  My partner in the swap was Beverly @Flamingo Toes.  I was afraid she would not be too excited with a Grammy.  She sews beautiful things and I don't sew at all. ( My mother used to sew for Airstream trailers and had no patience to teach me to sew or cook.)  I love to scrapbook. So we chatted by emails a few times and started to gather treasures for each other.  Here are my goodies from Beverly.
Here are some of the fun things she sent me:  some crocheted flowers, etc. from Ikea, information about the town of Carlsbad where she lives, ribbon (lots of did she know my ribbon supply was dwindling?), beautiful material (I think I will have someone sew into pillows that I really need/want), Yummy strawberry jam made in Carlsbad, stickers, alphabet letters and a beautiful print on a card that can be framed.  I am so excited with my items.  I will have fun making things and remembering the new friend I have made from this swap.  Stop over and visit Beverly blog.
I can't wait to have more followers so I can organize something like this.
