|I stepped out of my box and joined the Easter Mug Rug Swap|
over at Aunt Pitty Pats and I had so much fun putting this
all together. We were suppose to get an Easter Mug and make a mug rug
to match it. And we were to add some goodies in the package.
My Swap partner was Nadine and this is what all I sent her.
|I used my embroider machine again and did more Easter eggs!|
|This is only my 3rd Mug Rug that I have ever made.|
I thought it turned out pretty good.
|Then I made her a little card with my rubber stamps!|
Are you proud of me, Becky?
It's a start, right?
|I was tickled how the embroidery turned out.|
I thought it looked cute with the mug.
Inside that mug is some candy in a package
that looks like a carrot!
|And of course, I had to give one of my dishcloths!|
Imagine that, right?
|And then my package came from Nadine!!!|
Oh my goodness!
Look how sweet she packaged everything!
|Look at all these gifts!!!|
I was so overwhelmed.
Do you notice that candy in a package shaped like a carrot???
That is exactly what is sitting in her mug that I gave her!!!
|Is this not just beautiful?|
|And look at all the tea that is in it!!|
|I am so overwhelmed with these beautiful gifts.|
|And look at this mug rug she made me!|
Look at those Easter eggs!
|And this cute spatula that she added........|
And last but not least!!
Look at this Easter Tea Mug!
Thank you Nadine!
I am just a beginner so when I received all these gifts
and saw how professional they looked.....
I felt like I should tell her to send my back and
I would redo it and try to make it better!
But then we talked through email and she told me
how much she loved mine too. She told me that
it doesn't matter if you are beginner. She said that
the enthusiasm that I have for learning means a lot
to her. She loves to hear that others are learning more.
I guess everyone has to be a beginner at some point, right??
Anyway, I had a ball joining in on this swap.
It was so much fun.
Today I am thankful for.........stepping out of my box.
