Recently I participated in a winter swap put on by Amy of Bumble Bee Lane.  My swap partner  was Sandi from  The Primitive Skate. She was very generous. Here is what she sent. The stuffed heart she made from a quilt scrap, stained it and put a rusty key on it. She also made the gingerbread.  She said that she only knows the basics of sewing but I think that she did a wonderful job. In the bag are salt dough hearts and gingerbreads that she also made. She grunged up the tea lights and candle. She is so talented. There also was a cute card with a heart cut out of it. But there is more.
Here's a wooden flower and chicken that she painted.  I just love these. There are cinnamon bun and french vanilla melts that she purchased, a couple of my favorite scents. But thats not all.
Look there's more. There is a cute journal with a picture of a key on it and look at those measuring spoons.  Sandi purchased those at a thrift store and painted apples on the bottom of them cause she knows I like apples. Those I will be hanging up in my kitchen. And the last thing was the paper mache box that Sandi painted, sanded, stained and put that cute label on it. Thanks so much Sandi for all of the treasures. I love everything.
Here is a photo of what I sent Sandi for the swap. You can see more photos if you head on over to The Primitive Skate. Thank you Amy for putting on the winter swap. Amy is putting on another swap called Some Bunny Loves You Swap. If you haven't signed up already hurry on over to Bumble Bee Lane and sign up. It is so much fun. I can't wait to get started on the new swap.

What a lovely gift! I especially love the heart made from an old quilt scrap. I'd say Sandi's sewing "basics" are pretty darn good! Have a happy day.

Holy Moly, she did spoil you!! Sandi sure is creative to make almost all of that for you! I love the idea of painting on the bottoms of measuring spoons... just wish I could paint like that, ha.

Love everything you sent her as well! Your doll hair and eyes are always so very cute, love that about them!

Have a wonderful week Becky, hope you're able to get lots of crafting done~ =]
