Sweethearts Swap Goodies

Earlier this month I signed up for the Sweethearts Swap. I had the pleasure of being paired up with Ricki over at Art@Home. It was really wonderful getting to know her and her blog. She paints some truly gorgeous pieces. Go check them out HERE. She also hosts My Happy List on Tuesdays, which I have started linking up with, and Literary Fridays. I really have enjoyed going over her previous Literary Friday posts and have a little list of books I need to look for on my next trip to the library or book store. 

Yesterday I received my package from her. (Please ignore the fact that I might need to iron the table cloth.) I then waited till naptime to have a quiet moment to open it and actually enjoy it :o)  

 I was really delighted with all the wonderful goodies she sent me. I don't think I've ever seen such fun goody bars. Both are dark chocolate which happens to be my favorite. The Pink Bubbly has raspberries and the cinna-man has cinnamon.  
I'm waiting till tomorrow night to give one or both a try. Can't wait.

Next up were these wonderful heart stickers and a family themed smash pad. I'm a little behind on my Project Life album, but I'm thinking about jumping ahead to Valentine's week JUST so I can use some of the beautiful hearts.  
 The family pad will be wonderful for a heritage album I am trying to organize. 

These Love Rocks are so cute. 
There are 12 decals to dress up your glasses. Which I totally will be using. Possibly not all on drinking glasses, they would be so pretty for candles or my scrapping too. Love them. 

I was REALLY stunned to find the Project Life Cherry Edition Core Kit in my box. 
I am on my second year of Project Life and haven't gotten a Core Kit...just the protectors and pretty much make do with the supplies that I have. 

I think I've looked at all the beautiful journal cards (which can double as fillers) a dozen times since yesterday. I love the colors and the patterns. I've been thinking pretty hard about going back and doing a 2011 Project Life album....perhaps this is a sign?
Aren't they beautiful? And that's not even half of them!!

Here are all my lovely goodies. 
 Ricki, I cannot thank you enough for your amazing gift. I cannot wait to use all my goodies and I'll be sure to share them as I do. They are all wonderful. I am so glad we got to know each other and I hope we continue to be blog buddies!

Angie and Beth, Thanks for hosting such a spectacular blog swap!! I really had so much fun and cannot wait to do it again!

If you want to see what I sent Ricki, check out her post HERE. And be sure to go check out all the wonderful gifts all the other bloggers involved received!

*squee* I'm so, so happy you like your package! I really wish I had put together scrapbooks for my children. You will treasure all the pages you've created for your kids! I've been fascinated looking at your posts about your scrapbooking projects.

I LOVE my prezzies. I'm drinking out of my mug right now! Mr. Art @ Home saw it a few minutes ago and said, "Really! You went and bought mugs to match our chair cushions?" LOL he is pretty observant for a dude!

You have been the very best swap partner, my dear! I hope you enjoy your goodies like I've been enjoying mine!

That CHOCOLATE look Delicious! (Never seen it before either) What is a Life Project? I have never heard of it before so I am curious.


Miss Angie said...

That is an amazing package, you and Ricki Jill were so perfectly paired! How wonderful!

So tell me what Project Life is. I mean I have smashbooks, but that looks difference and I've been seeing it a lot lately, I just don't quite understand.

Beth W said...

Wahoo! I'm so glad you and Ricki Jill are new bloggy friends, and what a fantastic package! You're gonna have so much fun being crafty with that stuff. :D

Wow! That is an amazing package! Isn't the Project Life kit great? I actually use blog journaling in my pages so I don't use all of the kit and can use it for a 2nd year.

Thanks for commenting on Marty's Musings and I hope you'll visit again!

That is AWESOME! I have the same kit! Just got to put it to use. You must tell me about these swaps and things you link up to! That looks so fun!

Wow! A whole core kit? How fun!
