Little Boxes on the hillside.....made of ticky tacky...

Well not really. But boxes with sticky tape are kinda close....nah they arent are they...Oh well.
ANYHOO the kinda boxes im talking about are boxes of pure sweetness, swap parcels and great friends.

I participated in my lovely gal Sarahs ENCHANTED Swap. It was soooo fun! My partner was sweet Bek over at Beks Shabby Dreams. We were both 'kinda' late sending out our swaps (shame on us i know), but i was the worst one!Sorry Bek slapping myself on the wrist now.
Heres the box full of love that Bek sent me.Lots of Princess themed stuff..and mmmm some chockies for me too :)

Bek did this gorgeous lil pink bag full of stuff a princess would need to look and smell pretty for her prince. If you click on the picture you can read the clever card.

There was also a parcel for Sam (i know, how totally sweet was that right) and some lil drawings for me from Beks gorgeous kids :)

I loved it all! Bek you did a really sweet job (and you were so worried) and i loved it!

Now this is what i sent Bek.

A Princess crown full of hearts and love, a pair of dainty slippers and a Dream banner...a princess would always be dreaming of her Prince now wouldnt she...

Thankyou to my sweet Gal Pal Sarah for hosting this AWESOME and ENCHANTING swap :)

Now...i also participated in the lovely Heathers 'Junque in my Trunk' swap.

Unfortunately i have not heard from my swap partner, nor have i received anything (insert sad frowning face here). BUT here is what i sent her. I hope she loved it all. I went with all the things she likes and wrapped it all in a gorgeous and huge crocheted table topper.

It was sooo fun getting all that stuff together so Thankyou to Heather for hosting this one!
Oh and if i do end up getting a parcel i'll be sure and post piccies for you all to see .

Now i need to get my thinking cap on for anothwer swap i just joined....Louise aka Beachys Cape Cod Cupboard is having a Vintage Boudoir swap! how could i have not joined that one! Louise is such a sweetpea :)
My swap partner is Mandy @ Pearl Maple and im so excited because i have to think outside the pink square for this one! Wish me luck!

Oh! How fun on the swap! It took me 3 years to tell Cody I was "tired" of the paint color. I couldn't EVER tell him I picked the wrong color. :)

What a cute package you put together but then I would expect nothing less from you, my little crafty one. That was so sweet that Sam got a package too. Hey, how is your mum??? She has not posted forever. Tell her we miss her. I'm glad you like my porch, I am off work today and was hoping to sit there and just daydream however too much to do and I must catch up with all my blog friends. Hope your week is going well.

LeAnn :)
