Pink Swap!

In February, Hopsy at Monograms and Manicures hosted her annual Pink Swap. This was my first year to participate, and I was paired with the sweetest lady named Gretchen. Through some kind of mix-up with the postal service, I just received my package from Gretchen - even though she sent it February 12?! I was so excited to open it yesterday, and this is what I found:

She wrapped each gift individually and used the cutest pink and green polka-dot ribbon to add the finishing touch :)

And these are the goodies that were inside the wrapping!

I was just so touched by her kindness and generosity! I've been wanting a monogrammed apron for some time now, and this one is perfect :) I can't wait to bake some oh-so-yummy cupcakes in that lovely pink apron and use the polka-dot wrappers, treat bags, and ribbon to give them away as little gifts! And I will also love flipping pancakes in my apron with my new pink spatula :) The book (The Icing on the Cupcake) looks really interesting too; it's about a lady who opens a cupcake bakery and it includes recipes!

Many thanks to Gretchen for being a wonderful Pink Swap partner, and many thanks to Hopsy for hosting a great swap!!!
