Hi Laura
Your package was mailed today. I left the Delivery Confirmation receipt at work by mistake, so I'll get the number to you tomorrow. I hope you like everything. I had so much fun shopping for you and getting to know you.
And thanks, Shilo for hosting again. I hope to be able to do more of these whimsy swaps in the future.

Jeanette - Your package went out this morning I couldn't drag myself back out of the house last night after the crappy day I had. It went USPS DC # 9405 5036 9930 0228 4019 23. My DD helped with the wrapping, so its a bit messy. I ordered your paperline though 2 peas and it will be mailed directly to you so it will not be in this box. It was not shipping until the 10th, the soonest I could do it, so I ordered a little something extra with it to make up for the lateness. So sorry - I should have planned ahead. And I broke out the sewing machine for your homemade something, I hope you like it all. I really enjoyed this swap and hope you had fun too.

Awww Shilo I am *so* very excited to receive! Again, I just hope you enjoy your gift from me.

I understand about getting out. I only ship from home if I can help it as our Post Offices are about 8 miles in any which direction but getting there and back with my wandering toddler is next to impossible especially when my hands are full with fun swap packages.

I've heard from a few gals in my SS that 2 Peas is a tad tardy in their shipping recently. I thank you for thinking of me and looking forward to the surprise. Your handmade gift is something I hope you can use and enjoy.

And of course while I was out yesterday I was still in shopping mode since I last minute am angeling a SS spot and grabbed a few more things that your entire family can enjoy (again hoping here). That will be a second package that I hope to ship by tomorrow since my hubby back into town. You'll have that by early next week but your main gift should be there tomorrow! Yay!

Hi Laura
That is really an interesting coincidence.
But shame on me, I just found one of the required things I was supposed to mail you in my spare room. I'm so sorry. I will mail it either tomorrow or first thing Monday.

Thanks Shilo for the great gift!

I am always in need of ink and the inks you sent were colors I heavily use. The socks, kitchen towel, runner and blanket are adorable. I am hostessing the holidays here so they will be on display or used. The movie will be watched tonight as we are not familiar with it nor seen it before so that will be fun as we are fans of Vince Vaughn. We are already digging into the candy, lunch right?

Looks like my box to you was delivered yesterday. Hope you enjoy it all!

Santa must be helping the USPS this year because I got my package today. Laura totally spoiled me. I love the candy dish and of course the candy. The candles smell so good. I love the notecards and the Christmas Memories scrapbook. Laura made a gorgeous Joy To The World banner. And how can a coffee called Santa's Blend not be good? She also sent a special cookie recipe that sounds yummy. I'm sure I'm forgetting things, but I love it all. I hope you're not disappointed with your package.
Laura, unfortunately I got called in to work this morning, so I didn't get to the Post Office with your missing item. But, on the plus side, the place I had to go to was having a Christmas bazaar and I found a couple of cute things to include to make up for the lateness. Also, your cookie recipe got me thinking. My grandpa and his brother used to own a bakery and I have a couple of recipes for authentic Dutch cookies that they used to make for us at Christmas. They've been reduced to normal sized batches, not bakery sized batches. Would you, or anyone else in this swap like a copy of them? I know several of you have mentioned doing cookie exchanges.
I don't have to be at work until 10 Monday morning so I will be stopping at the Post Office on my way.
Thanks again Laura for everything. And thanks to you as well Shilo, These whimsy swaps are so much fun.
Mary

Hi Mary

I am so glad you liked everything - I was a bit worried that the candles would "scent" up the candies. Hope they arrived still tasty!

I would love to share recipes! I had big plans to write down a few more of our favorites but I let time get away with me. Let's make a deal... I'll send you a bit more happy mail with some yummy recipes and you can send some back to me. If anyone else wants to join in the recipe sharing fun, that would be great too!

Ooooh... wouldn't a cooking whimsy swap (hint hint) be just too fun!

Working on getting my little family off to bed early tonight - these 5:00 mornings up with the chickens (literally) are already taking a toll on us!

Take care everyone - we've got some chilly weather coming our way tonight and I can't wait!

Laura

That sounds like a plan, Laura. I included two recipes in the package with your forgotten item, but I'll look for some more. And a cooking whimsy swap does sound like fun.

Yeah! I checked my DC last night and my package was waiting for me so I picked it up today... just curled up and opened up my box of Whimsy and I loved everything Mary! Thank you sooo much for all the wonderful goodness in my box. My kiddos loved their surprises too!

I'm going to sit back down and enjoy it all again after we get back from checking on the chickens but I wanted to pop in quickly and let Mary know that I'm one happy Whimsy camper!

Jeanette - So sorry it has taken me so long to post, we have been so busy! Thank you so much for the fun box! So many cute things in it. I love the cup - DD tried to still it from me and I wouldn't let here. But she did claim the cute little moose. We watched Elf last night, the kids were so excited to see it with out commercials lol! Let me know when you get your collection. I got an email on Monday saying it was shipped. Merry Christmas

Jenn made me 3 darling Placemats ^ 4 NICE sized hotpads out of matching gingerbread fabric! The one bigger gingerbread guy is so yummy smelling & the other one is just the right size to set next to my bird/gingerbread houses!




Check out those darling paper pinecones! OH MY stars Ilove them!
I need to learn how to make them! AND that darling Ginerbread sputula...seriouly adorable! I have ot seen 5 Christmas's yet so I am really excited!




AND last BUT not least! MY very favorite peice....THIS super beautiful vintage candy dish!!! Jenn said it's from an antique store just a ways from her & it's from the 40's! MY hubby is IN love with this!!! Funny huh!? MY DD said she is going to steal it!


I'm sorry the pics are so small...but they were taken with my cell phone.
I am still in kitchen remodel so I was only able to put up a few things out for display & use... HOWEVER these things will be the 1st things I pull out next year when I get to decorate my Kitchen! Thanks again Jenn & I love everything & YOU!
