Received: Miniswap

I just got the best best best miniswap package from Kirsten. As you can see from this picture, Ikey could hardly wait for me to snap one quick shot. He tore into EVERYTHING right after this was taken. Then it took me a full day to get everything back from the kids long enough to take photos of it all.

We just loved what Kirsten sent. It was all so perfectly suited for my children. Here are some (several) photos.

First, Kirsten sent lovely pouches for both kids. Zoë's had costume jewelry and Ike's held three little cars. He's been driving them in and out of the "garage" all day.

She made these placemats which are a really great idea. We use fabric placemats every day. It's Zoë's job to put them on the table. She's going to love using these. And notice that great fabric on Ike's. I love it.

She also sent these pillowcases which were so immediately loved that I HAD to put pillows into them right away. You can see another picture of Ikey's here. He just pats it and says "train train train."

And for me she sent a lovely little tissue holder. I've been meaning to make one of these for a long time. I'm really happy to have one now. And the fabric is wonderful.

She also sent some pretty little Richard Scarry buttons that are so cute--I don't know if I'll be able to share them with the kids.

To top it all off, she also sent stickers, a great thrifted book, some beautiful little paper dolls, a dance mix CD, and a Valentine making kit. She said that I spoiled her but I think she spoiled us just as much, if not more. We're loving everything and so so glad we signed up for this swap. Zoë's been asking me if we can do it again soon. She loves having new "computer friends."

i'm SO glad you liked it. i had a ton of ideas, too- and a couple of them fell by the wayside due to illness - like packaging...
after i read your superheroes post i slapped myself on the forehead. i'd thought (and decided not to) make them capes! but maybe they already have them.

This looks like a lot of fun. I get so many ideas from reading your blog and following the links. Thank you! Once I get myself organized, I am hoping to try some of them ~ starting with the monkey slippers!!!

The original construction of the Breitling Watch is far from the only thing that makes it unique. In designing its fists ever "proprietary chronograph movement", Navitimer World did so quite unusually. Chronomat Evolution rather avant-garde concept has to some degree been borrowed from similar high-tech industries; it is essentially a new sort of production line that maintains artistic integrity. Every movement is perfectly tracked by high tech computer software that instantly transmits Superocean to the proper station following a path wherein automated stations alternate with stations that require manual intervention.


Is it a compliment or the kiss of death to say that every sexy, skinny skittish number in Christian Louboutin shoes show on Wednesday would look a treat on Victoria Beckham? The former Posh Spice and the wife of football icon David Beckham is a byword for the polished sexiness that is still Christian Louboutin Pumps mantra a year after Tom Ford's last collection. As a show to keep the Christian Louboutin Boots flag flying, there was plenty to please the retailers: smart tailored coats with embroidery in relief; red-carpet gowns with a lattice of decoration; purple crocodile bags and Christian Louboutin Sandals with a calf band of bright navy the inky dark color that replaced black in the show.


Coach Wallets is one of the most sought after brands of Coach Gallery . What is the reason behind this? This bag is famous because of distinctive design of Coach Luggage and the added touch of Zebra lines. Wow! What else the customer wants. The design of this handbag is a mix of classic colors of Coach Madison pattern. So it is the greatest offer for the customers who are in search of chic.
