Swap Sent To Tam

Recently I participated in a swap that Tammy, A Primitive Place had. It was a secret friendship envelope swap. I had Tam, Scentfully Country Gal, as who I was sending to.

Since everything had to fit into an envelope, I had to really think about what I was going to make. Decided on a summer themed swap and set about making some things that could go in the envelope that the post office wouldn't break, mangle or smash.

Decided that wood blocks would be pretty safe in the envelope, so made a set of stackers themed for summer. In a recent Create & Decorate magazine was a set of watermelon plant pokes desiged by Patti of Raspberry Lane Primitive, well I decided to make them bowl fillers instead as the stick part would present a challenge for the envelope.

I also made a set of painted fabric stars in an americana theme. These started out just a bit differently and ended up totally handpainted. Both the stars and watermelon slices would be perfectly safe for their trip in the envelope through the post office. I am happy to report that even though the envelope was crammed full it has safely made it to it's destination. Yippee!

Be sure to pop over to Tammy's blog and check out all the wonderful swap items that were exchanged in this swap.

Until next time...
