Hello to all! Please post here when you send your gifts out to Debbie and Debbie, please post here to let us know all about your special month!!! ENJOY !!!!!!!!!!Dawn
March came a day early! I got a wonderful package with a nice card & letter from KimsKreations.
I received the most beautiful night light I have ever seen. It's a floral china teapot. I plan to put it in my dining room, near my tea cup & tea pot collections.
Next up was the cutest tealight candle holder. It's a little blue shoe made of ceramic. I have never seen anything like it either.I also got a box of scented tealights to go with it.
Last but not least she sent me several bottles of essential oils. I will have so much fun with those. I plan to use the 100% parfum ones in making bath stuff, they smell absolutely beautiful & hopefully I will too after using them. :)A couple I will save for burning in my aromatherapy diffusers. In fact the citrus one is burning right now to cover up the smell of the grilled salmon I had for lunch. LOL
You made my day & have me really looking forward to March.Thank you very much.
That was a really nice gift box! It will be fun using all those oils too. Nice way to start off the month. :)

UPDATE: Dawn's special person of the month Earthly
You are more than welcombe Debbie, it was my pleasure. I had alot of fun packing your box and am delighted to read that you liked the items and that you received it today.
Thank you so much for letting me know. I hope you enjoyed your box as you are a SPECIAL PERON and this is your SPECIAL MONTH DEBBIE! YOU GO GIRL!
Debbie, just out of curiousity do you make those bath fizzie balls?
May your month be full of wonderful surprises and might it remind you how special you truly are.
Kim,That amaryliss is beautiful. I'm glad you have the name on it so I can look for that one next year.I really did like everything you sent me. Thanks again.
I have made the fizzie bath balls before but not in a long time. You have to work fast so that they don't start fizzing as you are putting them together.I have rheumatoid arthritis & working fast with my hands is not an option most of the time. So now I make fizzie bath salts instead. I can send you a recipe for both if you like.
Ohhhh....Debbie, I don't make that kind of stuff *lol*...I'm not that talented. Thank you so much for the offer though ;)
I am not in this swap but I just had to check in and see how you guys were doing. I hope you ALL have great fun doing this.
Just wanted to let Debbie know I mailed a package out to her today. Keep an eye out for it! Hope you like it!
my package was sent today.hope you enjoy it debbie and happy birthday!
I will let y'all know as soon as I get them.
I got a nice package with the cutest card from DaWiff today.
She sent me a lovely teacup & saucer with beautiful red roses on them. I really like that shape of cup.
She also sent me three counted cross stitch kits. Two have the prettiest butterflies on them & the third one has an equally pretty dragonfly on it. They include plastic canvas & after stitching you cut them out so you have the shape of the butterflies & dragonfly, not just pictures of them. They are great! I love them & can't wait to get them worked up so I can display them in my garden room.
Thank you so much. I loved all your gifts.
Sounds like you and (Queen Treesa from the other swap) are having a good month! What a nice way to get ready for spring!!!!Dawn :)
Dawn,I'm having a wonderful month!Thanks for coming up with this great swap idea.
You're welcome! I'm so glad you liked the things I sent! The teacup was so pretty and that old-fashioned shape, I thought you might like it. And the cross-stitch kits looked unusual and pretty.
Anyway, happy birthday and hope you're having a fun month!
Hello Debbie,I am sending your box out tomorrow, so keep an eye out for it. Happy Birthday to you!!!*HUGS*Dawn
Thanks for the birthday wishes. I'm absolutely having a fun month!
Alison,I have never seen any cross stitch kits like those. I love them.
I got a cute package from Veeja today. The outside was covered with the cutest little stickers that reminded me spring is on the way. So did the nice card inside.
She sent me garden gloves which I always need.
Two packets of seeds. I have never grown datura or birdhouse gourds so I'm looking forward to trying both this year.
A nice magnetic note pad, another thing I always need. What a cute puppy on there.
Several packs of hot chocolate that sound delicious, I will definitely try one of those tonight.
Thank you very much for your gifts. They brightened my day.

Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes. :)
I've had a wonderful day spent in the garden, then later stuffing my face with family & friends. Then coming here to read all your birthday greetings was icing on the cake.
Life is good!
I got a nice package & card today from mamabirrd.
She sent a beautiful handpainted sunflower in a flower pot figurine. Very talented! It will look good displayed with a Debbie Mumm plate I have called Sunflower Angel.
Everything needed for a Easter party. A couple of packages of Easter candy. YUMMY! Pretty napkins & tissues. The sweetest egg candle in a tin pail. Plus a cute Easter sign to mark the way.
As I was opening the box, one of the first things I got to were boxes of Jello. I gotta tell you I thought how "different", no one has ever sent me jello before.. LOLSo I set the jello aside & continued opening my fun filled box. Once I got all the goodies unloaded, I was able to get out that thing wedged against the side of the box. It was a mold for Jello beans! How fun! That explains the previously mentioned boxes of Jello. LOL
Thank you so much for your gifts. I had fun opening your box.
Hi Debbie, Oh!!Patient one, Your new gift is in the mail. I got tired of hoping the other one would turn up. If it does you will be doubly blessed(I wouldnt hold my breath). So here's hoping this one makes it. Liz
Liz,I'm sorry your package was lost. I hope this one makes it.I feel bad that you felt you had to mail a second one so soon, I would have gladly waited.
I'm going to make sure I do delivery confirmation on any I send. I sure don't want to lose any!
I received the nicest package & card from Earthly Delights today.
She sent me all kinds of yummy stuff. Tea, tea biscuits, shortbread, blueberry oatmeal, 2 kinds of jelly & flavored popcorn. I can't wait to try it all. I need to get out more, I didn't know they even made blueberry oatmeal. LOL
Some beautiful notecards.
A gardening magazine. That was perfect timing since I have a Dr. appt. tomorrow, it will help pass the time in the waiting room. That is if I don't read it tonight.
A Trash to Treasure book full of neat projects. I'm anxious to try some of them. I'll have to force myself to wait until after I get my planting done. It will be hard though. LOL
Several bottles of fragrance oil & they all smell wonderful. I'm already making plans on how to use them.
Thank you so much for your gifts. I will enjoy using all of them.
debbie, i hope you didn't have too much trouble removing all that tape from the bottle wrap around the oils. i wanted to make sure they didn't break.
i'm glad you enjoyed the box.
it should have been there sooner, i mailed it on the 7th. a few days ago, it was returned to me, as if i was the recipient. what fun day i had with the mail clerk!
enjoy the remainder of your month. it's been a lot of fun reading what you are receiving. it's neat never quite knowing when you will be getting something...that has to be part of the fun too.
dawn, this was a really neat idea for a swap. i see others are doing it as well :)
Earthly,SO sorry it was returned to you. I hate when that happens. Good thing you didn't send those boiled eggs! LOL
I didn't have any trouble with the tape. I just used my scissors & cut it all off instead of trying to unwrap it. They arrived in perfect shape, as did everything else you sent me. I enjoyed tea & biscuits this evening while watching t.v.
It is fun never knowing when something will arrive. I've loved every minute of it.
Y'all are in for a treat I'm telling ya!
i must confess debbie, i thought, just as a joke, send one, just one hard boiled egg. i guess it was a good thing i didn't, considering the time it floated around. boy that would have stunk!
can't wait to hear about all the other great things you receive from the remaining players :)
Hi Debbie and the rest of yens......
I'm glad that you are having such a good month Debbie. I've been and still am sick so I've been out of touch a couple of days and was going through GW and pals withdrawl. So I had to get on here and see whats going on. It's just so nice that everyone on here is so sweet and sincere with the swaps and such. This seems to be the only place to come for good news. :) Enjoy the rest of your month!! I'm excited for the next person already......except I dont know who it is yet lol*Hugs*Dawn
I got a package from Rewards1 today.
She sent me a nice note & a pretty candleholder with candle. The candleholder is pewter & has rose carvings on the stem. Then the frosted shade is a beautiful rose.
I just recently hung pewter sconces on both sides of the bed. The candle holder will look great on the night table below the sconce.
Thank you very much. I really appreciate it.
Earthly,I'm glad you didn't do the egg thing. The P.O. might have confiscated it, thinking it was some sort of Bio terror weapon! LOL
Dawn,I'm sorry to hear you've been sick, I hope you get to feeling better soon.
Tomorrow is Spring!
I received a package & card today from dawnb818
She sent me the cutest little Easter bunny. He will be part of my Easter decor for sure.
A pretty musical snow globe with birds & a birdhouse inside & gardening decor at the base.
Flowerpot pot candle holder with a candle.
Several packs of seeds, just in time for finishing my WS.
The cutest little stamp pad with a teddy bear in a bubble bath. That will look so cute on tags for bath products.
Some delicious candy, the pina colada creme is my favorite.
Thank you so much for your gifts. They brightened my day.
I actually got that on Monday but I was gone all day. I didn't think about this posting as Tuesday. I was 33 minutes late. LOL
I got a wonderful package from Luna Moon today.
She sent me garden gloves, something I can always use.
Peat pots for starting seeds, which she also sent several packages of. I love getting seeds & several of those were on my wanted list so I'm really excited about those.
A pretty angel on a stake pot or garden marker. She is so pretty I'm using her on a pot indoors, where I will see her more often.
Some wonderful smelling soothing bath salts. I can't wait to use those.
A yummy chocolate bunny & jelly belly beans.
A beautiful BIG tea cup & saucer with the prettiest purple iris on it. Not sure exactly what it is but I'm going to use it for a candle holder since I have one bedroon decorated in purple. I think it can be used as a small planter or bird feeder also.
Thank you so much for your nice gifts. You got my week off to a great start.
March is coming to an end, not many days left. I hope its been a fun month for you Debbie and that you have gotten things to make you feel SPECIAL!!!I'm glad you liked your little bear/bath stamp. I thought of you as soon as I seen it!NEXT WEEK, I'LL BE LETTING YOU KNOW WHO GETS TO HAVE ALL THE FUN IN APRIL !!!!!!!!!!!Dawn
wow debbie, your month of being spoiled is really winding down. looking forward to hearing what else you receive.
i just can't believe march is almost over. time moves way to quickly.
how long have you been making bath oils? have you tried extracting the fragrance from flowers or herbs to make your own oils, or is that too much of a hassle? do you do it as a business or just for pleasure?
so is everyone cooking or going out for easter?
wishing you all a very joyous easter.
Happy Easter everyone!
I just got home from spending a few days with my daughter. My mail has been held since Wed. so there maybe some packages waiting to be delivered tomorrow.I didn't want anyone to think I received their gift & failed to post a thank you.
Earthly,I've been making bath oils & other stuff for about 10 years. I just do it for myself or for gifts.I have done some extracting fragrance from my own flowers but not very often. It takes a LOT of flowers for a little oil. I would need a lot of one flower to make enough oil to do anything with. I prefer to have more variety of flowers & just buy fragrance oils. Although I won't have to buy any for a long time now, since you & Kim's Kreations sent me some. :)
She sent me a candle in a bell jar. It is Kiwi Berry scent & smells absolutely wonderful. It looks great too with the fruit inside.
I'm sorry this one was lost in the mail for so long that you sent a second gift. You didn't have to do that.It took exactly a month to arrive but it doesn't look any worse for the travel detours it took. LOL.
Thank you very much for your gifts. I loved both of them.
How do we get our new person since Dawn isn't on here anymore ?
veeja,dawn sent an email that said she would do that at her website.I won't post that here because I don't want to be kicked off GW. You can find that info in the email that was sent to everyone last night.
I'm posting my thanks at both places. Maybe the new person will do the same?
Now that my month is over, I want to thank you all again for making March such a special month for me. The time & thought you put into each package is what made them special, the contents was icing on the cake. The icing was fantastic too!
I also enjoyed seeing the diferent ways everyone packed their stuff too. That gives me some great ideas on how to do it myself. Plus I now have an ample supply of boxes, tissue & bubble wrap. LOL.
Now I'm looking forward to sending gifts to each of you. I hope all of you enjoy your months as much as I did mine.
Last but not least, a special thanks to dawn818 for starting this fun swap!
