My Swap Package!

Ok, folks.....it is now 10:00 PM, and I just came in from the zoo of the airport. I've been away for 2 weeks and I can't tell you how TIRED I am, but I just HAD to post this. I just opened my swap package from Debb and my eyes nearly fell out of my head! I'm going to list what was in this beautiful package because I had some of my luggage shipped with UPS and my camera cable is in that suitcase, therefore I can't post a picture at this moment, but believe me, I will! I'm not exaggerating.....this is one of the most thoughtfully put together gifts I think I've ever received. There was a great pattern for a felted Christmas stocking along with 3 skeins of Patons Classic Merino wool and the double points needed to knit it, some adorable Mary Engelbrett mini note cards, some Hershey's Sticks extra dark chocolate (only 60 calories per stick!), cat stickers & cat magnets, a beautiful Coffee book, a beautiful Christmas CD with music performed by The Mistletoe Choir, (do I keep using the word "beautiful??), a lovely lined notebook, 2 adorable Christmas handtowels, peppermint candy mints, some Christmas tea, needles, a recipe by Paula Deen (who I love) and a beautiful gray, pink and green scarf folded up in a small Christmas tote. 

Debb, saying "Thank You" just isn't enough for all the thought you put into this gift.
I especially enjoyed reading about your family's holiday traditions which you shared with me.

I will enjoy all the things you sent more then I can express. 

I wish a happy and healthy 2008 filled with only good things, to you and yours.

Love, * Phyllis *
