A very late thank you on a swap

Well you may have seen that I haven’t been on here for awhile…not just posting but visiting your blogs as well – I want to say I’m sorry for not being there – the bottom line in LIFE JUST GOT GETS IN THE WAY!

First order of business is a huge THANK YOU to TAMMY from
I joined her ‘Envelope Swap’ awhile back that she was hosting.  I was fortunate enough to have Tammy as my swap partner and I’m so happy for that – she’s just the best gift giver ever!

I knew that package was coming but I just didn’t know when, and when I saw it sitting on my porch I grabbed it and opened it fast…but I kept a bit of control and took a picture of the wrapped items – just prolonged the suspense.
I must say the envelope was packed too.

And when I got them all unwrapped…here’s what I found
A bundle of wonderful fabric…

Tammy’s handmade faceless dolls -

A personalized Pillow Tuck…just perfect

And last…one of Tam’s beautiful handmade ‘Burlap Bears’…just adorable

THANK YOU TAMMY…I’m so sorry it took me over a week to get this posted.
I truly love it all.
