Our Birthday

Last year, when Elyse and I discovered
that we share the same birthday,
we decided to do a birthday swap.


When we decided to do it again this year,
Elyse suggested we do a mini swap.
Everything must fit in a 6x6 shipping box.

What a fun idea!

Being sick for the third day now, the arrival of sweet
birthday goodies from Elyse really brightened my day!

Her pretty tinkered jars are perfect for holding
beads and other little pretties, like this fun
assortment that came in the jar.


And I'm loving these cute die cuts!

They're going to be fun in my scrapbooking
and other paper crafts.

Another sweet little tinkered jar *squeal*
and a cute little 'button bucket'.

And Elyse knows how much I LOVE
this Cath Kidston wallpaper!!!!!


Thank you so much Elyse.
I LOVE my birthday swap gifts!!

Happy Birthday to YOU and ME!

Happy Birthday Debi.. What a fun way for you and Elyse to share your birthdays. All your swap goodies are fabulous. Hope you've had a wonderful day.

P.S. My Mom shares the same birthday with you and Elyse. She is 77 years old today and still going strong :)

Wishing you well and feeling great. What a wonderful swap you received. It must have been a "super-sized" 6 x 6 box. :o)

Debi- I followed the link from Elyse (a girl I adore) to find you here. She said you weren't feeling well and could use a little cheering up. So...Happy Belated Birthday..and I hope that you will feel better soon. Now...the BONUS for me was finding your blog. It is just darling and I love all the things you show and craft. I am signing up as a follower. I am not nearly as crafty but I am sly~!>) Hugs- Diana
