The successful swap!

I'm thrilled with my second swap, as I was with my first!! (My first was with Pica - I gave her the Patriotic Soaps, and she gave me walnut ink - which I used to enter an art exhibit at The Arthouse Co-op).See all the goodies I got for my second swap, with Elizabeth of Gracefruit?! I believe I asked for 3 bars of soap and a Wattle Balm, but she added another bar of soap, a Nail & Cuticle Stick (which I flaked out and forgot to put in the photo), AND, to my children's utter and absolute delight, a package of vanilla fudge...from Scotland!!

Elizabeth, I'm happy to report, received my handmade paper notecards last week and liked them as much as I liked her products!

Well, I want to go on and on about how beautifully her soaps are wrapped and how heavenly they smell, but having spent all morning doing ceramics, I now have to catch up on floors to vacuum and mop, hot dog buns to make, laundry to do, and a book (actually, about 20 of them) to read, so much run for now. Happy Wednesday to all!
