Harvest Swap-What I Gave

Just wanted to show y'all what I gave Monica for the Harvest Swap. I made the Harvest verse craft. That was inspired by another project that Monica taught us to make. Her favorite Chai is packaged up already. I got her a magazine, chocolate cookbook, Thanksgiving stickers, napkins(is it bad that I push one of my obsessions onto other people??), turkey spreaders with two of my favorite spreader-needing appetizers, goody bags for her little ladies, and a pumpkin made from dried natural materials. I actually found a bunch of those pumpkins and other similar ones at Garden Ridge a few summers ago for a penny each!! Can you believe it?!?! I got at least 5o of them. If you didn't see what Monica got me, just click here.

I loved being able to tie in this verse into the swap. I feel its a very fitting verse for Monica also, as I view her blog as her mission field somewhat.

I stenciled "punkin" on an old shutter slat.

All packaged up and ready to go. I have to say, I quite love making tags now. I have two more swaps to go and I am finished!! Whew, its been a crazy, swappy season for me.

Oh wow you did a great job Elise! All kinds of neat things. I wish we had some of the stores you all name around me. I only have Walmart and a small Dollar Tree. I just did my first swap with Robin on the stocking swap. It was pretty fun to do.
