Two Great Books and a Fun Swap

I have received two packages in the past couple of weeks  The first was the two great books from Where Women Create.  Last summer I participated in the Where Bloggers Create event sponsored by Karen at My Desert Cottage.  I was one of the random winners of  prizes given by Where Women Create to participants. My prize was a copy of these two books signed by the author.  I love books and have enjoyed reading through these two beautiful books.   I will be reading through them again and again.

My second package in the mail was a box sent by my swap partner.  I participated in a swap sponsored by Kathy at Creative Home Expressions.  She matched up swap partners and by reading their blogs we came up with a little gift package.  I will show you the gifts I received from my swap partner Pamela at From My Front Porch to Yours.

  1. Hi Sherry,
    I just stopped by to say "hi" and then saw all your treasures--woo hoo! So precious!!!

  2. Those are some wonderful gifts. Isn't it fun to get surprises in the mail!

  3. So glad you liked your goodies Sherry! I had a blast! Also am loving your new books!!!

  4. Pamela sent you some lovely things, Sherry! The key fob is pretty and useful ~ I really love that idea! I'm so glad you participated. I love the Where Women Create book. I actually purchased one to giveaway last year and was sorry I didn't get one for myself. If I remember right, there were some wonderful pictures to inspire my own creative space.

  5. Oh I just love being in swaps! They are so much fun and you end up with the nicest goodies from the most creative women!
