Cupcake Love







I love cupcakes. When I heard that Sharon was having a cupcake swap, I joined up. I had fun looking and shopping for cupcake "things". I found out that my partner was Erna. She is a young mother of two little boys from The Netherlands. We exchanged e-mails and introduced ourselves. She is a lovely person. Now that we have both sent and received our swap packages I can show you our goodies. We tried to send them on the same day so that we would receive them at the same time but that didn't work out. Oh well, it was a nice idea! This is what I sent to Erna.






I made a small wall hanging with a cupcake in the center, a cupcake tote bag and a cupcake pincushion. I also gathered some other cupcake items.


This is what I received from Erna.





Erna made some cute little cupcake tags, a cupcake needle holder and a cute little bag that I will use to hold my threads and scissors. She also sent two fat quarters with cupcakes on them and a few other little cup cakey items. Again, thanks so much Erna. I love everything and it was so nice meeting you. I would also like to thank Sharon for hosting the swap. It was fun.



Blogger is not playing nice again! It downloaded the same picture twice and will not allow me to remove one of them. So Please enjoy looking at the pictures.







I will chat soon,




Pat
