Swap show and tell

Monica and I gave a new challenge to this round of swappers: to pick their own theme. I can't wait to see what some of you came up with!

This is what my swap partner, Heather, sent me: herbal tea, two loofahs, a bright pink bin, pure maple syrup and honey from Maine (these were my favorite items!), a cool notebook she decorated, a neat book about making natural homemade cleaners (can't wait to check this out), some cute tissues, and a pedicure set just in time for "summer feet." After reading Heather's questionnaire, I knew I had to do a Summer Brights theme. I wanted it to sound more creative or catchy, but this is all I could come up with. =)

Here is what I sent in my shoebox: photo album, candle, mints, plaid basket, fun notecards from my friend's Etsy shop, other paper goodies (Heather said she loves office supplies), cute tissues (we both had that idea!), bath and body stuff, and one of these. When Heather mentioned wanting to learn more about homemaking, I thought it would be neat to pass on this helpful book I'd received from April in the Harvest Swap a couple years ago. Then Heather can in turn pass it on to someone else if she wants!Now it's your turn to show and tell. Please share a direct link to your post so we can stop by and see your goodies! Thanks for joining us for another swap.

I don't understand the linky thing. Can you help? What picture am I suppose to upload?

I'm sorry I don't have a blog to show the goodies I got, but I did receive a lovely box from Sara. It contained a CD, quilters charm pack,candle holder, lotions, a bracelet, spice cake mix, and a soup mix. Thanks again Sara for the wonderful box.

Thank you so very much for hosting this swap! I enjoyed myself immensely and love making new friends. And to think my sister swap partner lives in Australia!! She is truly a wonderful lady and I look forward to getting to know her even better! (However I do think she may have gotten the short end of the deal...)

Once again thank you!!
