For the LOVE of Strawberries!


Our good friend Val from Yarni Gras sent us a wonderful strawberry package this week! We LOVED our strawberry goodies!


This was a swap was hosted by my friend Susan at Chickenfoot. It was a swap for me but Val being such a wonderful friend sent along some goodies for Nature Girl including a cute Strawberry Shortcake tote and a sun catcher kit that Nature Girl insisted we make right away. Here's Nature Girl with her finished sun catcher.


We were fortunate to receive an original Curly Girl Arts piece. It's a sketch book and with strawberries on it. We were very excited about this! If you haven't seen Curly Girl's blog check it out. She is a very talented young girl!! She has a tutorial for the strawberry sketchbook Nature Girl and I are holding. The sketchbook tutorial is here.

I was just saying I needed a tote bag for school and look what Val sent for me...a strawberry tote bag! I was a little upset on Friday when I was half way to work and realized I had forgotten it! But no worries it's stuffed with items for school and is ready to go with me tomorrow!

Val sent lots of goodies as she always spoils us! We got two pincushions, two tote bags, a strawberry note book, lots of yummy strawberry recipes and the strawberry sketchbook(I just realized the sketch book isn't in this picture!) Thank you Val and Curly Girl for all of the lovely goodies! Your goodies are still in my head waiting to be translated into swap goodies. I hope to make them a reality later this week!

I;m so glad you like everything! I had forgotten about that little strawberry pincushion....I was actually thinking NG could use it for her new doll she got in one of your recent swaps!

Love your strawberry goodies - great theme for a swap! We bought some fresh strawberries today - they are ready much earlier than usual this year - yummm.

Hey Jill, it's nice to get a glimpse of YOU in a photo!

Looks like you and Nature Girl are having way too much fun - as it should be! Those swap items are just darling.
