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 ribbon....how 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.
