Favorite Color

...swap reveal that is!!! Yep, I received a wonderful box of goodies, and I'm excited to share!



I don't know if you've had a chance to look at this blog, but I'm hooked! This is the second swap that I've participated in with Chaotic Goddess, and I'm keeping my eyes open to get in another!

I was assigned a wonderful partner, Kaylee, from A Chair in the Shade. I thought it was funny that we shared the same favorite color, purple! We shared a couple of brief emails about ourselves, and surfed each other's blogs a little bit to learn what we could about each other. Kaylee was right on with everything she sent me, I couldn't have asked for a better box of goodies. Wanna see what I got?




This was a lot packed into one little box! 


 First off, because I like flowers, I received a little purple flower pot, and crocus bulbs. I can't wait to plant these little bulbs!



Since I do love my scrapbooking, I also was the happy recipient of several scrapbooking products:


Pretty ink, Washi tapes, pretty purple sparkles, and embellishments. I have some pictures of my daughter in law at her law school graduation, with purple and black being the dominant colors, these will be perfect to complete the pages!

And last, but not least,



I received handmade items as well! Kaylee sent me ( see bottom picture) a small zipper pouch that she made. This is just the right size to carry in my nurse bag every day, since I don't carry my purse into patient homes with me. I took a second picture of the bag squished, so you can see the pretty fabric inside as well. The bag is laying on a purple dishcloth that Kaylee stitched as well. One can never have too many dishcloths!

There were so many thoughtful items in this box, and I think Kaylee did a wonderful job putting this together for me, thanks Kaylee, and thanks Chaotic Goddess for hosting this swap!

  3. Hi Cindy, Ah! purple that is my favorite color. I would embroidery everything that color if I had my way, but it would probably not work for others. I have never done scrapbooking, but my daughter does it for her relaxation. She made two for family starting with the wedding going through the births of their children, making it so they can add to it as they age.Enjoy that box of goodies. I am glad for you and your new job. I have talked to some like you at the nursing home when I go to see hubby. You are all so caring even about others too. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

    1. Hi Shirley, so happy to hear from you again! I would use purple for everything if I could, I get tired of always having to use black for my documenting at work, so blah. I'm anxious to use my new scrapbook goodies this weekend, got a lot of catching up to do. Hugs to you :)

  6. Way to go, you two! :D
    I love the range of purple that she got and made you, as well as the items (I prefer a blue-purple, like that, myself). Crocuses are awesome! That'll make for an even prettier Spring.
