PrettyThings Jar Swap

Hi there everyone!  It's been a while since I have been able to post, but I have not been a slacker.  I have been working on a large client order (550 Christmas cards) and getting ready to go back to Montreal to visit with my Mom and hubby's Mom.  
This post is the result of a very cool idea, a jar swap!  This was so exciting!
I participated in my first ever over at City Crafter Party Blog and had no idea what goodies could be placed into a jar from my swap partner.  Boy oh boy she was so so generous!  My swap partner was Linda and just look at this beautiful presentation, she even made me a CUTE card!

I don't know how she managed to stuff all of these goodies into the jar, there was even a stamp set!
Some of my very favourite items are the crocheted flowers and the lace wrapped pegs/spools.  I can't wait til I have the time to create a card with some of these very special items!
Thank you Linda!!!
  Do you know that Linda even included a pair of earrings that she made!  Vintage and special, that what this whole package represents to me and I am so lucky to have received such great goodies!  I loved this idea and would really like to participate in this again.  Why don't you check out this new blog, City Crafter Party Blog
to see what's in store next!
