In the October birth group on Ravelry, we elected to do a swap in honor of the pending birthdays of our little ones. It was a secret swap and, as my partner has no clue who their package is coming from, I'm going to share the contents here. A little pampering for both mom and baby for making it this far!
Here it is in it's entirety. (Not a fancy background, but this is what happens when you forget to take pics at home and end up doing so at work in the commissary on top of the pool table with your cell phone...)
Top row (left to right)
- some British themed loose leaf tea. I love the little tins too and would definitely need to repurpose
- vintage photo notecards
- our favorite Sandra Boynton book "Moo, Baa, La La La!"
- a tea pouch that I sewed with some of my favorite teas in it, along with dried chamomile flowers to add
- crochet stitch markers that I made
- Sesame Street toddler socks (they were too cute!)
- Josh Groban's last studio album, and the "Whip It" soundtrack
- a couple of soft acrylic yarns from my stash
- puffy bath books (which are also a favorite for Owen)
I certainly didn't get to craft as much for this swap as I have for swap packages in the past, but I still had a blast putting it all together and was happy to add a couple of handmade touches at least. I have a package coming my way from somebody and can't wait to see what's in it!
