Easter Swap! Swap Di Pasqua!

Finally, I can show the swap pictures, Yay!!! :)

This was an Easter Swap run by Caterina. :)
I sent my gift to MiniLisa and I received mine from Paky.

Here's what I received. :)

It was wrapped really well for travel.

Oh,  a cute box, what is in here?!

Lots of little goodies! :)

A shopping bag for Easter and an Easter basket filled with goodies.

A coloring book and colored pencils, exactly the kind of thing that I would put in my kids baskets when they were little. A bag of jelly beans! A teddy bear (is he made from a pipe cleaner? I've heard about that) Cute, cute, cute!
My most favorite part, the box of Ferrero Rocher, some of my most favorite chocolates in the world!
I'm going to treasure all of these little goodies for quite a long time. Thank you so much Paky, I love it all! :)

Even though, this was my first swap, I think it was the best swap evah! :)

Since Lisa has already shown her gifts, I can post it here.

I was originally going to do a wreath of flowers, but, I couldn't find flowers that I liked. When I saw this trim, I was inspired. An Easter Bonnet! (or an Easter Pillbox hat, lol). I was pretty sure this was an American culture thing, so I included the words to the broadway hit, In her Easter bonnet... in both English and Italian. I also sent along a little poster with bunnies and I made her some bunny and chick pillows.

This was so much fun!

Thank you, Caterina for running the swap. I can't wait to see what everyone has gotten.
