My Swap With Dana!

Hope you are all having a wonderful Monday! The sun is shining and I think it is supposed to be a pretty mild day. We are back in school and back into a routine. Still finding time to go to the pool after school, squeezing the last few drops out of Summer!

As promised I want to share my wonderful handmade goodies that I got from Dana  in our swap. She is so talented, and everything looks and smells soooo good! You can get all of these goodies on her website, she is working on new Fall creations right now, I can’t wait to see….

Here is her folk lamb. The detail on him is wonderful!


Primitive Sunflower Tarts, these are fabulous!  Mine are scented with Apple Cinnamon…Yum!


Mini Sunflower Tarts. I think they are too pretty to melt but Dana always says “please melt them Sarah, enjoy them”!

Love these, Dana custom made these flower shaped tarts, I asked for them to be the brown beeswax and they turned out so nice!


Here is a closer look, dusted with cinnamon!


Primitive Olde Crow Tarts~

Primitive Button Tarts, love these. Dana scores all these great prim shapes into them! Especially LOVE the one that says Prim!



These are darling! Mini Ball jars, you can even see the word Ball on the front, again…the detail is unbelievable!


Measuring Spoons~


Prim Bunny Tarts~

Primitive Blessings Flicker Light. This was from a previous swap with Dana. I don’t think I ever shared it!


Lavender Tarts, they smell divine!


I TOLD you she spoiled me! What a dear and generous friend she is! Thank you Dana, I will enjoy these for a long time and I will think of you whenever I look at them or melt them (if I can ever bring myself to melt them)! Haha! :)

One more picture to get you in the mood for Fall. Dana’s Pumpkin Tarts (also from a previous swap). These are my absolute favorite thing that she makes!  They are scented in Pumpkin Crunch, my favorite scent!

That’s all for today! I am going to do some work around the house and then I am heading to the gym later! I hope you all have a wonderful day!

I will leave you with this quote.

“Friendship can weather most things and thrive in thin soil - but
      it needs a little mulch of letters and phone calls and small silly 
      presents every so often  - just to save it from drying out completely”.

Give that special friend a call today, let them know you are thinking of them. Or maybe stick a small package in the mail just to make them smile! :)

Until next time, take care.
