F.R.I.E.N.D.S. SWAP :: Sent

Well I can finally share with you the package that I sent to Naomi for the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. swap hosted by Khris. The idea was to get to know your partner and come up with something for them that started with each letter of the word friends. This was the package I sent her.
(Click here to read her post about the package)

F:: Fabric Fat Quarters Kind of repro looking with a new age feel I thought they were a little kichen-y, but I couldn't resist the charm they had.

R:: Refrigerator Magnets and recipe cards Yeah my clever shot at trying those pendant necklaces (only with magnets instead)

I:: Ice cream Pin Cushion. This one came out of nowhere. Me and Sophia were at the craft store and saw the ice cream dish. We used the tutorial from over at Christina's blog.
E:: Exclusive Edition Soft lips balm. Ha ha ha I had to laugh. in the line with Sophia at Target I said "that's my E"

N:: Notebook, Well Actually it's one of my new carryall's but it has a notebook inside. :) And since my partners name started with an N, I found a notebook with her initial on it to, along with some cute birdie note cards. (whew, that was a long one)

D:: Dishcloth, yeah not very creative I know. I actually had the have the ladies at my fabric store help me brainstorm for this one. I even appliqued a cute little scrappy owl on there since Naomi loves owls.

S:: Stationary, and sweets. A little chocolate and some fun paper. Purple is her favorite color, and she loves stationary.

All in all, I would have to say this was the most fun I have ever had in a swap. I had a lot of time to complete the package and make some wonderful things. Thanks Khris for hosting such a fun swap. I can't wait to share what I get from Naomi.... stay tuned.
