I missed you and a spring supply swap!

I have missed everyone so much!! I had surgery on Friday and I've been down for a few days! I've been getting tired easy and sleeping alot! but I am starting to feel better! Thanks to everyone for their prayers! they help alot!!! I wanted to post pics of the spring swap supply I did with Jill from BucksCountFolkArt! Here is what I sent her! This might look like it's Christmas but it's not!! She loves Christmas! So I sent her a tin full of Christmas goodies and supplies, I put alot in that tin! Above in these pics are handmade by me. I love making tags so much so I made her a tag with her blog name on it! She loved it! I found the perfect picture on The Graphic Fairy blog. She shares the best pictures with us to use! I coffee dyed a little doiley, and that is a small yo-yo candle mat I made and a flower bowl filler. Since my camera isn't working I borrowed these pics from her blog. She has alot more pics on there. The best part was how much she loved what I sent her! She is a very special person and very talented! and this is what I received!!

 This is a little Mrs Claus she carved out of a small piece of wood! She is self taught and this is amazing! 

This is the rest of the goodies she sent me! Jill knew my favorite color is orange so she dried a real orange for me! How cool! There were cute little rusty items, tiny baskets, fabric, lace, Mary Engelbriet cards, wired ribbon, a little bag of thread glitter and beads! The cutest birdhouse that I am putting on my porch and some cute little ones to hang! There also was the cutest little piece of cherry fabric and an orange fat quarter! Jill gave all of this to me with her heart and I love it and I am also so very blessed to have been paired up with her! Thank you Gina for putting us together!!!

Woweeee! You're swap things are awesome! Glad you're feeling better.
I've always wanted to dry an orange--but I always ate them instead!
