My luck is changing!

I do believe many of the peeps that visit my blog also visit Heather's blog Present and Past Collection, and if you haven't yet....what are you waiting for??? Here's a peek at what I won the other day at her blog party in honor of her Step-daughter's shower! First off, I can't believe I won. I never win anything!! Well, I take that back. At work, I won a few things lately (Target gift cards, Belks gift card, oh and a lovely travel mug with our logo on it) but in the general public, aka as the real world. I don't usually win. My luck seems to be changing, so watch out lotto lovelies, here I come!
Just take a look at all this collection of goodies! I love the color combination of black, white, silver, and baby blue. She sent a variety of items that they made, such as a gift bag of color cordinated yummies (okay so I had to taste test a few hence the bag is a little smaller than it was ;), lovely coiled baby blue ribbon garnished with black lace, a beautiful candle, matches adorned with coordinating wrap, a slew of luxurious wrap to use as gift tags, a silver doilie, and a variety of embelishments to use for my own favors or packages. I love love love everything. Thank you Heather for sharing with those of us who joined in your blog party!

Speaking of goodness and goodies, Heidi, aka as Spiritual Knitter is definitely one of the sweetest, kindest, thoughtful bloggers I have met, of course I am a little bias because she was my first swap partner I was paired with when I joined the world of bloggers, and I have just really thoroughly enjoyed visiting her blog, getting to know her (as much as one can in blog world) and sharing inspiration and thoughts with her and she with me on our blogs. She sent this adorable felted pink and brown flower pin as a little thank you for the swap. I love love love it too. You can have one too, check out her NEW Etsy shop for more felted flowers, as well as shop her selection of handcrafted, felted purses she is offering for sale. She does excellent work, and I wish her much success in her new venture. Thank you Heidi.

PINK AND BROWN UPDATE: Today is the shipping date, I hope all you lovelies have had a chance to ship your packages. I have started a flickr group (I have never used flickr but I gave it a whirl tonite so we can take a peek at all the goodies) to post your packages: Post your P&B pics HERE

Last but not least, everyone knows Rebecca is about to go off down the newlywed highway, right?? If you missed her posts an her wedding preparations, please check out her blog for her creative Hotel goody boxes (and more)WOW. Her guests are going to be spoiled rotten even before the wedding begins! Anyway, rush over to her blog and send her off with some blog friend love for her big day. She is another one of the sweetest, kindest, generous friends in bloggyville that I have "met" and I wish her all the best in her upcoming marriage. HUGS.*****

What a great package of winnings you have. I love those colors!
Received my pink and brown swap package from Kari today and she received hers from me yesterday. I will be posting a picture or two in the next couple of days. Love the package I got from her. Great stuff!

I would also like to thank you girls for organising the pink and brown swap..not only was it my first swap but my partner introduced me to www.swap-bot.com...so three swaps later.I have throughly enjoyed this swap. I also signed up to help an American school with a flat Stanley, I have met and conversed with so many people via mine and their blogs, found so much inspiration, it has been an amazing experience. So once again thank you

Ohhh you were one of the lucky ladies?! I stumbled on to her blog the other day & was blown away by the set up she did for her step-daughter’s shower. It was really beautiful (so is her house, is like something out of a magazine!). I hope your luck keeps flowing. You know if you have any to spare you can send it my way!

I got my swap package yesterday and it's amazing. I'll post some pictures soon when I get some pictures in daylight. I'm sending out tomorrow...it's been a crazy week but my swap partner knows about it and she's been very understanding.

Thanks for organizing the swap. It's been loads of fun!
