My Little Red Box

I got a nice red box in the mail yesterday. Yep! you guessed it - a swap! :oD
The Shades of Red Swaparooni is actually my last one of the year! It is a F.lickr swap, which I never had done before and stumbled acrossed it. So it had many swappers with different interests.
I was matched with Erin (blogless) who loves to digi scrapbook. She was a great swap pal and sent me my cute little red box.
Of course everything in it was wrapped in red!
Even though this swap was set up as a quick low maintenance exchange. I was gifted a ton of things by Erin!

She was so very thoughtful and knew I love to knit (how did she miss that clue? Haha) and got me some yarn I needed to finish up some charity hats I've been working on at a snails pace! :op

I also got some notecards, heart post-its, a mini photo album, a coin purse, a pair of cozy brown & red sock slippers (she is so on it with the color combo!), dishcloths, some awesome Burt's Bee variety chapsticks (which I can't wait to try all of them out!) and a very red journal!

Now what you can barely see are these very cute red ceramic bowls (that were hard to capture in pics b/c of the glare/exact color) they will be perfect for the fall/winter when I consume tons of my fav apple cinnamon oatmeal and soups to keep warm!

OOh and did I mention how I also love my little red box!! :oD I will try not to store more yarn in it! ;op Haha!

Thank you so much Erin for being a great Red Swaparooni Pal! You were so kind and it is really good to get to know another passionate crafter out here in the e-world!
