Froggy Swap Package

I participated in a frog swap that was hosted by Valery of "Yarnigras Swapper Spot" and I received the package from my swap partner yesterday. I just wanted to share all the wonderful, handmade items it contained. I can't get over the creativity and talent wrapped in one box that Gizzy had to help me unpack, of course!

I'm smitten with the felted crocheting frog who has beads attached to her yarn spelling "rip-it" clever ist that? She's going to be my constant crochet partner reminding me with her big, toothy smile that when at first you don't succeed, just rip-it and try again! 

I can't get over the detail and workmanship Sherry put into making those two, decorated match box ornaments. They're simply adorable and they each have a little surprise hidden inside. Here's the frog prince with his loot::

and here is the little frog witch matchbox ornament:

(I love the little sticker that says "Ghoul's Best Friend)

I also got three little draw string pouches made from very cute frog pattern material and a really pretty blue lining to match. Here's a photo of two of them.

 I love the pattern and you can tell that they're very well made.

And if that wasn't enough, I also got these adorable gift tags with froggy sayings on them:

It's difficult to read what it says on the photo here, so I'm going to tell you the clever little inscriptions:

Toad-ally happy for you, You make my heart leap, Sorry I frog-got and You're un-frog-gettable! Aren't those clever?

Here's a photo of the items I sent to my froggy swap partner, Sherry, who also has a shop on Etsy called "A Pinch of This - a Dash of That" (in case anyone is interested in her work.)

I'm glad Sherry liked the gifts I sent her. She said that she wore my crocheted frog hat all day on Saturday when she got the package.

I think I'm off to do some crocheting now with my new froggy crochet partner - I just love her!

p.s. the cats are loaded and off to Florida to the Vet for their spay/neuter ordeal. I took photos and will post about it tomorrow after I take more pictures at 6:30 pm when we have to go and pick them up.

This is for you, my dear, faithful, patient and forgiving blogging friends:

Have a wonderful day!

What *Frog-Tastic* goodies! They are all wonderful! (Your swap-gifts were equally adorable!)

Great news about the kitties!
I know they are scared..but after they arrive *home*, they will live healthier and longer lives.

Brava to you, dear Doris!!!!!

Love to you and Gizzy!

What a great box of goodies! I have noticed that bloggers are so generous, and will usually even put extra little gifts in the box if you have ordered something. This is so much and made so well, even lining the bag!!! But you also sent her wonderful things!! Would you be willing to make me another singing in the rain bluebird for a gift for my friend? Also, do you have any other bluebird things you make?

Hi Doris, these Frogs are to darling and I can see that you will enjoy them and that's always a plus.

By the way, I think it is fantastic what you did with the kitties. They will be so much better of. It's nice to know there are people out there who care.

Could you send Gizzy over for some modeling, as I can't get my two to do it?
