Dotty Swap Fun!

On Wednesday, I received my Dotty Swap package in the mail from Shirley of Zetta's Aprons, who was my swap partner. It was a beautiful red and white polka-dot basket filled with so many fun surprises.


I loved the cupcake kit, which included a dotty cake mix, decorations, and the perfect cupcake liners. The Valentine's containers are so adorable with just the right amount of sparkle! They are filled with candy and a cute little Eiffel Tower keychain. And how about Lampchop, with her polka-dot bow? Isn't she adorable? I haven't seen her in so long. Such good memories! Shirley included some gift tags, Sweethearts candy with a cute bluebird tag on it, and a wonderful vintage valentine from her collection. Of course she had it all arranged beautifully, but as you can see, I had so much fun digging into the goodies that I couldn't get them back quite the way Shirley had them!  

Now that I know Shirley has received her package, I'll share what I sent her:

                      
It was such fun to make these, and to be a part of the Dotty Swap. Many thanks to Holly at Cutie Pie Cottage for hosting this swap. It brought anticipation and excitement during a normally gray and gloomy time of year.

The swap sounded like fun..what lovely swap gifts you received.
oh a lambchops..I had forgot all about lambchops. I had a lambchops puppet as a child.
The little Valentines containers are adorable. I love that age/style of valentines cards.
I am sure you swap partner will just love the apron and her pressies. The apron is just the sweetest!
Have a lovely weekend..

What a fun package!! And judging from your header and background you obviously don't care for red OR polka dots. ;)

I'm looking forward to checking out your older posts.

Blessings, Debbie
