Let me back up for a second. I could tell from the minute the swap package arrived that I should be prepared to feel inadequate in my own swapping abilities (notice the hand-illustrated label):
It’s almost like Shanna knew E. E. immediately started using the crayons and doodle pad she had packed:
And I couldn’t believe how many little surprises were in store for her – a silverware roll, recipe book, purse – all matching her apron!
E. is a wiggler so it was difficult to get good pictures of everything – especially the apron itself. But it was obvious by how frequently she shouted "princess!" and "open this, Mommy!" that she truly loved everything.
I sincerely admired everything – the apron was especially beautiful. But one of my fave pieces of the day turned out to be the headband (pattern here):
And because she looked so cute in it, I took a ba-million pics of her in it:
Thank you so much for sharing your time and talent with us, Shanna!
