Handmade Joy Exchange

My first ever swap or in this case a Homemade Joy Exchange was in March, I was very excited this being the first time participating in something like this.  I was very happy with my homemade gift that Karen sent from Connecticut USA!

Karen wrote in her lovely card that she noticed I enjoyed the color blue, she hit the dot on the nose, I love blue, of course I love most all colors :)  Now my daughter has claimed this little bag as her's and she keeps her "fabric" inside of it.

Now the sad part, I sent mine to Sara in Mexico and it never arrived, boohoo, Sara if you are reading this and would like me to send you something else I can, just leave a comment.  I think maybe your officials snagged the box since it had chocolate in it, what do you think?  I also sent some music from my area in Greece and a postcard of where I live along with a hand written card.  I made her a mug rug or small wall hanging.
I didn't have much to go on since her blog post are very random and she hasn't even posted anything since April.  But she talked about liking the rain and a lot about her daughter, her princess.  So I know my daughter loves Rainbows, so this is what I created for her.

Thanks to Anne for organizing everything and truly saddened mine did not arrive, you can find the other goodies received and sent here.  On other news I also sent something out in April to the States and supposedly it never arrived also, well it just now was found (found yesterday), it had dropped behind a shelf at the destinations local post office, so I am so relieved that Kristy got her donation for the Foster children and perhaps this is what also happened in Mexico and some day it will be found.

That's too bad that your lovely mug rug never made it:( I have heard stories of things miraculously appearing many months later. I'll cross my fingers for you!

That is a gorgeous little treasure from sweet Karen too:)
