I am in a Secret Sister Swap for Easter and it's so fun! (In fact, my kids are so excited about it, that I need to do something like it for them.) We went to many lengths to hide our identity, including mailing the packages from other states when we are traveling and giving 'tricky' clues as to our identity. When the secret sister package arrives, there are three gifts inside; one for each of the three days leading up to Easter. Each day we open a gift, labeled as 1, 2 or 3. On Easter Day, the final gift will reveal who our secret sister is.
Here are my three gifts - so pretty with this gorgeous DSP and spring colors. I love the way she labeled the gift bags and that embosslet flower - yummy! Theses little gift bags have been taunting me - on my front room table, whispering to me - 'open us' - 'we have goodies' - 'you want to see!' * hehe*
And here are my Day One goodies! oh, yay - my secret sister just spoiled me already - the stickles are 'baby blue' and cotton candy' and so sparkly and pretty! I can't wait to use them on a spring project, along with the matching Soft Subtles brads! They can inside this adorable little box with such pretty details - the scallop edge on the lid, the taffeta ribbon tie and another embosslet flower. And that little bag next to it is filled with candies! Chocolate Candies to be exact - Neopalitin eggs and dark chocolate Mounds - mmmm!
I am off to have a cup of coffee and some chocolate!
