Valentines Swap 2011 - Thank You Denise!!!!!

This is my third blog swap I have participated in and I am SO happy to report that this one (like the others before them) did NOT disappoint! Denise had me, so I already knew I was in for a treat! Not to mention I got an email beforehand saying that she insured the package (because there was glass), so I was SUPER excited!
Today, my daughter's school was closed because of a student holiday, so Alex came to work with me. I get out at 12 noon, and when we pulled in the driveway, there were TWO boxes on the front porch! So, it was REALLY cool that we both received our swap gifts at the same time! We ripped into those boxes like the two silliest, giddiest girls you've ever seen! Lol!
So, this first post is what I received from Denise-
(I did some creative editing to hide our addresses)


Look at that creative packaging! My son wanted to play with it so bad! The note inside said-
"Enclosed are a few yummy treats for your family! AND something for you to display it on!"


Ok, so this picture doesn't even show you how beautiful the display stand is! No wonder she got it insured! I already have it displayed on my kitchen table! I absolutely love it! There is also some yummy cookie mix, frosting, sprinkles, a goodie bag with some of my FAVORITE candies (I love peppermint patties!) and a set of Wilton heart shaped cookie cutters! I am definitely making these sometime this week!


Thank you SO MUCH Denise! You seriously made my day!
