Swap: Dollar Store Swap Round 2 RECEIVED

Thank you jp197012!!
I got my package yesterday!

I Love everything!!

It was like Christmas - she individually wrapped everything. I never even thought of doing that.

Here is the wrapping paper:

Two awesome bracelets and matching earrings

"Skellington" Purse (that my daughter keeps trying to steal)

Apple candle (for my apple kitchen)

Tall yellow smiley candle (cuz I love smileys) - those postal workers put a sticker over where she wrote "Glass".

Blue candle-type ring and 4 white votives (for my nautical living room)

Swap: Dollar Store Swap Round 2 SENT

How can life get any sweeter? Two things that I love have been brought together in a rich, creamy blend of heavenly goodness. The Dollar Store and crafting. There are two very teensy little things that I have a problem with:
  1. I can only spend $10 - very difficult for a dollar store addict to do!
  2. I can only send three things.

Now that I have that off my chest, on with the show! I really do hope she likes everything! It's different because I don't personally know her. Family and friends always feel obligated to like what I make. I tell them they can tell me the truth. I WANT THE TRUTH!! I CAN HANDLE THE TRUTH!!!
