Easter Basket Goodness X 2

I participated in the fun swap hosted by Genevieve, Bella-Enchanted's Easter Basket Swap and was lucky enough to have TWO partners! Double the fun!!

My first partner was Elizabeth and this is what I sent to her! I apologize in advance, because I have the pics of the wonderful basket she sent me on another cd that I don't have with me at the moment....I will add later. Anyway, this is what I sent to Elizabeth....





My second partner was Carol and she was just a doll! This is the package that I sent her...it was a lot of fun to put together!




And this is the wonderful package that I received from her in return! Candles and lace and vintage inspired collage sheets with cats and animals that she cut out and wrapped with a ribbon, stationary, note cards, stamps and an amazing apron that I already have hanging in my kitchen (I collect old and vintage inspired aprons!) and more!! She really went overboard and I just love everything!





This swap was a lot of fun to participate in.
Even though I am addicted to swaps, I have also been in my studio working on some creations and business ideas and will post about those soon.

One more swap that I did participate in was the Alpha Stamps/Tallulah's Swap hosted by Lenna over at creativeswaps.blogspot.com. She is awesome. Mine are soooooo simple compared to some of the other creations that I am almost embarassed.....next time I sign up for her swaps, I will go all out!! Here are my creations:

Lolly, you are an AWESOME swapper! I learned a great DEAL from you & have participated in several swaps since the one where you & I were partnered. Thanks to you, I now KNOW it's okay to add lots of extra goodies. (I DID that in my other swaps!) Your partners are SO LUCKY! Beautiful baskets from a big, beautiful heart!

I'm glad to have found your site, great baskets-who would not love to receive those? I'm doing a Link Swap so if you'd like to swap links that would be fun. It's open to all.
