Fun Friends

I joined Em's Thanksgiving mini swap {although I don't do mini} ;) Here are the goodies I passed along...

Remember my yarn pumpkins? I made her a yarn wreath
{I made myself one too, love it}

Circle garland saw this on Amy's blog, I knew I had to make one!

Mini Pumpkins

My hubby bought me this AWESOME acorn punch, so I made Em some punches.

Now for some special treats from Elise, we like to give each other gifts just because..

She made this cute black bird tassel you can buy one here
in exchange for...
this fall embroidery I made her....
Elise read my facebook post a while back and learned I wanted a sock monkey for my birthday {it's in November} Guess what came in my box???
Meet "Eli"
And finally while shopping at her Walmart She found that her Martha stuff was clearance for a dollar she called me and asked if I wanted green ink and a scallop rotary... Oh yeah!
