By the Dozen Egg Exchange

Christine from A Work in Progress hosts the best swaps!  This is my second swap of hers' that I have participated in and they are always so much fun.  If you haven't stopped by her blog, be sure and do so.  I'm sure she'll host another swap soon.

I'm a little late on getting this posted.  Just getting caught up after my hospital stay. 

My swap partner was Kathleen.  Unfortunately, she does not have a blog, but I'm going to go ahead and post the pics of our swap.

Oh, the details of the swap were as follows.... Decorate an empty carton of eggs for your partner and fill it with spring goodies.  How fun!

Here are the pics of my sweet gifts from Kathleen.




I'll also post pics of what I made for Kathleen since she doesn't have a blog to link back here.

Here is what I made....

This was SO much fun to make.  I modge podged scrapbook paper onto the egg carton after spray painting it Krylon's Ballet Slipper Pink.  Embellished it with black ball fringe and lined the inside with batting and ticking fabric.

Filing it was the fun part.  I filled it with ribbon, magnets, rubber stamp, keychain, antique hanky.....
easter bracelet, vintage buttons, paper clips, and beads.

Thank you Kathleen for being my swap partner!  Also, thanks to Christine for hosting another great swap!
