In November I signed up for a mug rug exchange with Kimberly over at Camp and Cottage Living. I had never made one before but I figured it shouldn't be too hard since it was just like a little mini quilt. I got paired up with a lovely woman, Jean, from New Zealand...you can see her beautiful work on her blog, All Points on the Compass.
Yesterday afternoon, my package arrived!!
Along with a beautiful mug rug, she included buttons(funny because I had sent her colorful buttons as well!), bookmarks, a mini calendar, and awesome Kiwi bird napkins...but she didn't stop there....
She went through my blog and found out every single one of my kids names and then made them(as well as James and myself) each a New Zealand key chain! And wrapped them all up individually so they each had their own little present(I love the paper!). She even made sure there was one for Cameron in Hawaii. Seriously, how sweet is this?!?!
I really can't thank Jean enough, her thoughtfulness and kindness were greatly appreciated and brightened up my week. I need to go make a cup of tea now to try out my new rug!!
Have a wonderful day,
