Cold Hands Warm Hearts Swap

A while back before my life twisted upside down ( more on that at a later date) I signed up for Sandy and Illene's Cold Hands Warm Hearts fun swap.  I was partnered up with Somer .Somer has a cute blog here and an a realllllly cute shop.  I would love to know how to knit and admire anyone that can!

Anyway---fast forward a month and a pretty little package showed up on my doorstep from Miss Somer.
What's better than getting a package of handmade goodies just for you before Christmas? I know, nothing!
The first package I opened happened to be a gorgeous pair of mustard fingerless gloves knit by Somer.  I've worn them every day since the package arrived. They are darling!

Then I got to open other fun gifts. Lots of practical and fun items handpicked by a total stranger. Yet the gifts were totally me from start to finish. How fun  and  exciting this little community of handmade women  is!
She wrapped up some pajamas, cranberry lip gloss, cotton gloves, homemade laundry detergent that smells like CHRISTMAS, bath salts, loaf pan, lantern, magnet from HOLLYROCKS,  a journal, and some handmade dryer balls ( which I didn't snap a picture of because they are currently removing static from miss lily's clothes!)

I already started filling up the journal with lillypie notes about my adorable winter program. The first batch of goodies will be sent out this week!

It was wonderful meeting Somer and I look forward to getting to know her more over the next few months. She's an expecting mommy and I can just tell my reading her posts that she will be a compassionate and loving mother. The way she talks about her baby just oozes sweetness and new mommy bliss. I'm sure she'll blog about it and I look forward to following her journey!
