Pin Keep Swap




















































I wanted to share with everyone what I received in the mail yesterday. Recently I participated in a Pin Keep Swap that Wendy from "Ravenwood Whimzies" http://ravenwoodwhimzies.blogspot.com/ was hosting. We were each assigned a partner and had to make a pin keep for our partner, that was designed with our partners likes in mind, it also had to be on some sort of pedestal, box, or anything as long as it was not a square flat one.
My partner was Kathie from "Beyond The Story Book" http://beyondthestorybook.blogspot.com/ . After writing back and forth and getting to know each other we both discovered that we have so much in common. She is such a sweetheart by the way! In writing and getting to know each others likes and dislikes, she ask me what my fav. Holiday was....I replied Halloween, and then explained why. I love Halloween because it is in Fall and Fall is one of my fav. seasons..... Well Look at my pin keep!!!! OHhhh my gosh, she did it! She got me..., in creating my wonderful new pin keep. Isn't it fabulous? She put so much "Love" an"Thought" into creating it, not to mention all the details....I "LOVE" the little spider crawling up the side(which is a pin cushion also) and the tiny web hanging from her hat, the spiders on her hands. The white birch branch that she used as the base is so awesome! When I look at my new pin keep I see my Fall and Halloween all combined into one! What more could one ask for? LOL Then not only did she do an awesome job on my pin keep, she sent me some other goodies as well! A wonderful little purse, loaded with creating goodies....pieces fabric, ribbon, gold mesh ribbon, a package of gems in all sizes and colors and a package of awesome stickers and my fav. an Angel decal that says"Protected By Angels" I Love it! Kathie also included a beautiful butterfly card, with a sweet note inside! Thank you so Much Kathie.......I "LOVE" everything!
I also would like to take this time to Thank Wendy for hosting such a wonderful fun swap! "Thank You Wendy....I had so much fun participating in your swap!
Friends, you know what the best part of this swap is.......I have made a new Dear Friend in the process, A friendship I'm sure of, that will blossom and grow beyond this swap....... Till next time, Hugssss Mary
