Defeat the Winter Doldrums Swap Package!

So I came home at 8 am this morning to a wonderful surprise waiting for me!! I have been participating in the Swap for about 5 weeks now and learning a lot about a lot of people. I have been posting the weekly topics and chatting it up. My partner got her package after a particularly bad day in Washington, and her response to me made my head swell and glad I did the swap. Thanks for the head swelling email!! We are planning a duo post here sometime... you'll have to watch for that. Check out her blog:

She is a super cool woman, so go pay her a visit! Here is what I sent her:

Onto the goodies that I got!!!

My wonderful partner sent me a load of great stuff! There are obviously 2 great dishcloths, which i think I will be using for face cloths, because they are so soft and wonderful!! There are 2 delicious bath bombs that you drop into the tubs that fizz and smell yummy and I just might have to indulge tomorrow!! She also sent me mento's... Did I blog about these? I might have put them in my questionnaire for this swap... THEY ARE MY FAVORITE!!!! I love them... and I ate them already. She also sent me the awesomest little chocolate things. They are little skinny squares of chocolate, which is perfect for me. Just a little bit is perfect for me! I grab a little square and yummy chocolately goodness!!

I also got a great bar of soap called Brazilian Mango Grapefruit. Oh, it is soooo yummy!! The smell is just awesome! I'd love to put a scratch and sniff logo here, but technology isn't quite that good yet! There was also a pineapple lip balm... i use it all the time... wonder where she got it... I might be in love with it!! I got a thing of hot chocolate, which is great to beat the "duldrums" of winter and make it feel nice and cozy if only for a few minutes!

Oh and then there is the yarn... She sent me 3 skeins of yummy goodness... have I said yummy enough times in this post? It was oh so fun to open this up... I was like a kid in a candy store. The blue and pinkish skein is Dream in Color Baby yarn... I'm going to find a wonderful lace shawl pattern and knit it up for myself!! I'll be sure to share that with you. The 2 smaller skeins are Hempathy... made from cotton, hemp and nylon I think... she said it makes great face cloths, so I'll be doing that very, very soon!! Thanks so much to my wonderful partner, who is also in Washington! Small world! Check out her blog:

Thanks for everything!! I love it all.
