Friday was a super fun mail day. Miss Madie came running home from the mail box saying momma the mail . Guess what you have two apron packages. I eagerly ripped the first one open while she riped the second one.So I opened the first one wondering wish Swap it could have come from I saw a children's book and thought how sweet. I then looked at the apron and thought how cute is this.I then read the note and found out this was a first time swapper. In being a first time swapper she did not say witch swap she was from.. So I did some investigating and saw she was on the flirty apron summer vacation swap... So I am guessing that this is the apron from this swap. Anyways.. I read the sweet note and then looked at the book. It was called the little stream a parable. I thought how sweet. I have heard the book read in primary many times and some how did not know it was a book. I thought it was just a story from a manual or something. I grew up with the song the book was based on Give said the little stream.. so I thought how thoughtful of her to send this book. I then read who the Author was. It was Kristi Sherwood Crum.The maker of my new apron and the sender of the package. I was totally impressed with her modesty in never once saying in her letter by the way here is a book I wrote. She even inscribed the book and singed it.It is a very sweet insception. She also said how much she liked Sarah Palin. The whole experience was very neat.. I will show off the apron later..
The second package was not an apron but a Target reusable Shopping bag and a J monogrammed note card. I looked at it confused for a moment thinking what swap is this from. I then opened the note that came with it. It was from my beautiful Low matance older sister Crystal. She thoughtfully sent me the target bag so that I would have a target bag for the opening day of target coming up on the 12th of October. I can hardly wait. Thank you my big sissy for being so thoughtful. I love it and can't wait to fill it up with all the yummy target goodies..I am so lucky to have such a good older sister who knows how hard it is to be with out a Target. Poor girl was in Germany for 4 years with out one..
I hope every one is having a great Monday. I will probably post later today about Making recycled aprons and shopping bags.
