Spring Swap Goodies

I joined in on a Spring Has Sprung Swap hosted by Tabitha at Creative Wings.  We were paired up with two partners and mine were Adrienne and Susan of Eclectic Shorebird.  Here is what Adrienne sent me.

Such precious little nests ~ one on the basket and one extra.

Lots of crafty things and some bling.

Not to mention the beautiful and very creative little basket she made for me.

And that extra little nest fit perfectly under a tiny cloche and dish I got from Deb at Garage Sale Gal in another swap. 



Susan sent me these gorgeous items.

She made this 3-dimensional piece as well as the pretty white basket.  Another very creative lady!

She also included some crafting bits and pretty lace.

And here are a couple of pictures I swiped off Susan’s blog of what I sent out to both my partners. 


In addition to a bunch of little goodies I made them each a bunny lavender sachet.


Thank you Adrienne and Susan for all my goodies!  Thank you to Tabitha for being our hostess. I enjoy joining in on swaps from time to time.  I feel that it keeps me challenged with some of the creations as well as helps to keep those creative juices flowing.

Happy Easter!

So fun! Everything is so cute! Those teeny nests are just darling.

I've never joined in on a swap. I imagine it would be good to keep the creative juices flowing! I work better under pressure or when I have a tangible deadline. So it's something worth looking into.

Have a wonderful Easter Kathy!
