Martha Swap

My Martha Good Things Swap is over and I sent out my package on monday. Yesterday I got home and I found a nice package waiting for me. I ripped into it like it was Christmas and I could feel my husband's eyes burning on me. He thinks I'm so crazy! He actually said, "if you accumulate enough junk to I have the right to throw it out?" Uhhh... NO!!?!? Anyway, for the swap we each had to name a list of at least 5 crafts from Martha's Good Things we would like to receive. Our partner was to pick 3 of them and then make a 4 thing as a surprise (it could be any of Martha's crafts). So, I sent teacup lights, flowery notes, strawberry pincushions, and the tea towels I posted about before. Here they are in all their glory:

and my partner sent me button magnets, wallpaper cards, memorabilia tin, and a teacup light.

Aren't they just too cute? This was my first swap and it was so much fun. I have now signed up for the Pink and Green swap and I can't wait to start looking for goodies!

And now for a random giveaway. If you look closely at the teacup lights I made, you will see two others in the background. I made extra because I thought they were so cute, but now since my partner sent me one, I suppose I don't really need it. So, I'd love to share "good things". Just leave me a comment and I'll pick a winner maybe tomorrow or the next day.

I love everything you made, but I must admit i especially LOVE the strawberry pincushions. I think I might have to try making one of those!

Love the swap items you made, as well as the ones you received. Those tea lights are just too darned cute! Those would make great teacher gifts for the holidays. I'll have to add them to my project file!

Oh, I managed to get modeled-outfit pics today and will try to get them on my blog tonight. :)

I might have to start getting some magazines when I move back to California. Lots of inspiration. I love the stuff you made. Swaps sound fun, I might get into that too. All in good time.
