Haven Swap Show & Tell

carrie of with all that i've been given and monica of the homespun heart have been having shoebox swaps since i've been reading their blogs. for whatever reason, i was unable to participate til now! and it has been so fun.

my swap sister was mary ann and she was so generous and creative. i don't know if you can see all the tags but she put a tag that she wrote words of encouragement and scriptures on each of the wonderful gifts she sent. included in the box she sent were: a jar of m&m's (mmm!) an apron in bright colors (fits perfect even over my curves) a Mary Engelbreit magnetic notepad (love, love, love ME) a homemade mix of chocolate peanut butter cookies (my boys are going to be in heaven!) a jar of walnut whip handsoap (mmm!) a ME magnet that says CELEBRATE! It's a good life (great sentiment) a special CD of music from her fav stash including my #1 fav song that i don't have in my collection "Bring the Rain" by Mercy Me. thank you Mary Ann!!! and a bunch of fall accorns all wrapped up in a cute black photo box with a black and white ribbon.

i am overwhelmed by her generosity and her creativity. mary ann has been fun to get to know over the last few weeks and a great gal. go visit her blog and get to know her yourself.

ps: i'll let mary ann share what i sent her.
