Another FABulous Swap Box!

Last week I received my swap box for the Fall Into Autumn Dishcloth swap. It arrived a little late, but my wonderful spoiler was the amazing Cass and she emailed to let me know things were a tad behind a couple times and actually revealed herself in email prior to the box's arrival. And boy was this box so worth the wait! LOOK!!!

Everthing was wrapped up so nicely... one package even had a little dog collar & "woof" tag wrapping it!

Until I tore into it all faster than the speed of light and found all this yummy-ness!

OMG, can you say S-P-O-I-L-E-D??!! Cass included one of the most wonderful, kind notes ever and explained to me that this was not a traditional "dishcloth swap" box per say, but it came to me with a spa theme. Me loves spa theme... very nice!

There were so many cool & unique things inside the box, inlcuding knit-theme hand stamped mini note cards, a "Wag More, Bark Less" (such words to live by!) sticker that will soon find its way to my car and the coolest little notebook that was made from a Black Dog Ale 6-pack box.... how friggin' cool! Cass included my babies and sent them some great chicken & carrot organic dog treats that they've been drooling over! And... there were, of course, some wonderful handknits & beautiful cotton yarns...

There you see a most amazing stoneware mug with a custom knit cozy (this is going to be so perfect all winter long!), 2 face cleansing cloths, a face scrubby and a luxurious eye pillow (for which I was eyeing - no pun intended! - and anxiously awaiting the pattern on Cass' site!). There's also yarn ... 2 skeins of Sugar 'n Cream, a skein of Cotton Ease and a skein of Pakucho Organic Cotton that I can not wait to try! It is made in Peru and feels so super soft.

Then there's the "mmm... good" part of the package...

There is a vanilla travel candly, Te Tao bath & body set, chocolate, tea (including some Teaology Lavender Mint that I can't wait to try) and the most delicious Butter Cream coffee, which we've made 3 times now and love it. It goes especially good with the seasonal vanilla spiced rum coffee creamer that's out now! YUM-O!

Thank you Cass... this was a fan-tab-ulous spoiler box and you really nailed me to a "T"!

In other knitting related news, I spent some time packaging up my first few sets of stitch markers that will officially be for sale at A Knitter's Garden (I'll get to some more for Etsy shortly, after I finish all the knitting & gifts for the AKG Open House). Here's the first 8 sets of "Stitch Markers by Lapdog Creations"...

Wow. Exceptionally awesome. I have a "wag more, bark less" sticker too, and I told Cass I think that's our house's theme.

The stitch markers look incredible too. Wish I could come shop!!

Great loot!

So home you decided how much you're charging for the stitchmarkers? Are you going to set up an etsy shop?

Far-freakin'-out! Seeing such cool stuff makes me wish that we had more than three square inches of free space left in the house.
