Leta felted the cone, and I think it's adorable. The rest of the items are also wonderful, and I can't wait to use them all - the candies will be a particular hardship to bear :-)

I threw in a necklace for her birth month that I put together.
I also sent her a couple candles in her favorite scents, a journal, and a bag of Starbucks whole bean coffee. Hopefully, some things that she'll really enjoy.

I'm hosting my very first swap, the "Around the World in 20 Tags Swap." Won't you please join in?
I'll need a grand total of 20 people. Please sign up by e-mailing me (wendyhue[at]aol.com) with your name, address, e-mail address, blog address (if you have one), and country choice by April 30. I will e-mail you back to confirm your country choice (which will be assigned on a first come-first served basis), and with my address, so that you can send your completed tags to me. If you do not receive an e-mail back from me, please resend it. Tags (and $5 for S&H) need to be in the mail by June 15, and I'll have packages sent out by the end of June.
The countries that have already been chosen are listed below.
I'm looking forward to this, and really hope that you are, too.

I can't wait until June 7, when it will be released - I might actually have to read this one, I listened to the Twilight series and "The Host" on audiobooks.

I used the book to make a Book Purse, and filled it with Bit O Honey's.
Since I had cut the book apart to make the purse, I used some of the pages, and some artificial fall leaves, to make an Altered Composition Book.
The pages also went into covering a cone, to which I added a ribbon and bow with a fun oak leaf print. Inside, I put a bag of gummi worms, which go with the outdoorsy theme of the book.
I took an old wooden book/box, painted it, and added the first page of the book and an illustration.
I filled it with some Puckerooms (sour gummi mushrooms) and these clip-on earrings, which look like oak leaves.
I had a lot of fun putting it all together.

I then went to work on my Book Purse for the 2nd Annual Nancy Drew Swap. It went amazingly well for my first time, and I'm pretty pleased with the results.

She is so clever - each wrapped package came with a tag with a "clue" on it.
Perfect for those quick runs
