Here's The Deal...

The game, another swap. The theme, cards. The rules, at least four gifts, all four symbols must be represented and include something to eat. At least one item must be thrifted and one item must be homemade. I LOVED this swap because it really forced me to think outside the box. Though I think I did the worst job ever wrapping my gifts so I didn't bother taking a picture of that for you. But I sincerely hope my swap buddy enjoys the goodies. I had a ball putting them together!


Something sweet....
Chocolate cupcakes, cupcake cuppies and Peeps. Why Peeps? Why not?! I love them! Oh I think the bag I made is pretty cute too.






Hearts....
A heart shape dish, two heart shape pancake molds (my required thrifted item) and a heart shape pocket mirror. Also included some stationary and a pen. Because I *heart* them.






Clubs.... OK, so this paperweight was originally two shades of green for St. Patty's Day. But considering that is not a huge decoration holiday, I thought it would be more year-round-ish in pink and red, my buddy's favorite colors. I also included the Peeps in this picture because Laura (A Dozen Eggs) informed me that there is a Peep club. I'm all over the cheesy jokes today!


Diamonds....
This luggage tag and coffee cozy (she does live in Seattle- mecca to us S'bucks devotes!) set is sort of a diamond-y print, right? And this red necklace is not red diamonds. Shocking, I know. But the beads sort of made me think of big ole diamonds. Its fun to wear with jeans and a white t-shirt.
Spades...
For me this was the biggest challenge but once I spotted a selection of seeds, I knew right away that I needed to find a spade. Now, I am not actually sure if this is a spade or just a thin shovel. But can you please just pretend for me that this is a spade? Because it won't make sense if we call it a small shovel.
And I had to make this for my buddy simply because of the print. It's a Lilly Blackjack ice cream cozy. I actually made it before I did the giveaway but didn't want her to see the print so I took a picture of another part of the print for the giveaway post.
