Unfortunately, the flash really washes this out, but it does help the beads sparkle.

This is a swap package I received today!
Inside were 'coal cookies' which are one of my family favorites that we call Chocky Chocolate Chip. In fact, they are such a family favorite, that my brother has lost 3 entire batches to his dog sneaking them.
The ornaments are samples of the needlework that I do. Inside one glass ornament is a sample of Tunisian Simple Stitch with a tiny hook; in the other glass ornament is a granny square with a tiny hook, and the third ornament is delicate knitted and beaded lace covering a red glass ball.
Oh, and to round it off, was an entire box of Cinnamon Hot Chocolate. enjoying a cup right now.
Thank you, Monica for the lovely box. I was so impressed with the Ornaments, I almost forgot the goodies!

I participated in a swap recently, and received the most amazing coaster. Well, this coaster is so beautiful, that I will be hanging it to inspire me at my work.
My Swap Partner catered to my sense of culinary adventure and sent me a Mate Tea... chocolate infused tea with all sorts of other amazing ingredients. It's a shame that you can't smell this tea. I made a mug of this last night and oh my goodness... it hit the spot.
And a green tea infused chocolate bar... that was amazing.
This package was so amazing, that I was a bit embarrased by the one I sent.
