I have been trying not to add things to my to-do list lately, but when Amanda posted about her handmade swap (version 2.0)...well, some things are beyond my willpower to resist.
Up top: Items sent. I drew Sarah--raising 4 kiddos in Pennsylvania--and quickly decided I wanted to do something just for her. I've written before about how nice I think it is to take a moment for tea on a busy afternoon, so I put together a little tea kit, complete with a pretty cloth, some of my raspberry leaves, and a jar of (my favoritest) blueberry ginger jam.
On bottom: Items received, from Stefanie, yarn artist extraordinaire. She put together something for everyone--a hat for me, an amigurumi for the Kid, and a flower-y rattle for Little Miss. Even Sweet Husband has been sharing-in on the chocolates. If you're curious about patterns and such--I want to make this flower for everyone!--check out her post with all the specifics.
Thanks again to Amanda for tackling the hosting logistics!
