I always have the most fun in swaps because you never know when you might receive a box, bag, package, parcel of love!!  Of course it ALWAYS seems to arrive at a time I need it most and this Secret Easter Bunny swap was no exception!

Last Thursday I received a top secret parcel from the Netherlands and I was so excited because I knew I would open over the weekend.....then of course the weekend was dark and gloomy so not great for photos!!  My secret partner stayed secret in the package but I had an idea of who it might be......yes, it was our wonderful MAYAA!!  I'm so glad to be her first (I think!) partner and can only explain that you could tell how much love was in the package....let me show you first the special bead carrier........hand decorated (I LOVE IT and that is one envelope that is not being thrown away!  Too cute!!)

I VERY carefully opened the envelope so the sweet chick wasn't disturbed.....wait until you see the front of the envelope!  It made me laugh so hard!!  It looks like the bunnies are jumping up to be seen!!

I feel like I should be doing personal sweet things in my swaps like this and yet am scared someone will wonder at my attempts!  Oh well.....I'll have to start practicing!!  You can see I have a yummy chocolate lollipop that has NOT made it to Easter!  All gone!!  But it was good!

And look at the cool bunny that is now hanging in my window at work so I am enjoying it all week!!

He is looking out my window and very disturbed that there is still SNOW on the ground!  Sorry bunny!!

Finally I want to share that I have a list of beads that I want but I never seem to get bought.....I can get distracted by uniques and don't get the beads I really want to start playing with.....thankfully my partner seemed to know this and sent me the MOST MARVELOUS RED POD!  I have wanted this bead for SO long but have never found the perfect one......it symbolizes love and passion and is 'A nugget of life'!  I love the meaning they give this bead and am so thrilled to have one to start playing with. The meaning will stay with me and I will feel the love when I look at it.....Mayaa also seemed to know that I LOVE beads that have things applied to them like flowers, leaves, ornament design, ribbons....bumpies and this bead has the coolest leaves!!

This is going to be so much fun.....of course Mayaa doesn't know that now I'll have to start looking for more companions for him!!  The color is so rich and glorious.....and the leaves are a perfect lime color.....I can't wait to post what I do with this bead!  Thank you SO MUCH Mayaa for the warm and wonderful hug you sent me in your package!  I love it all!!  One final shot so you can see how rich the color is!

Oh how wonderful! I adore people who can draw (I surely am not one of them Smile ) and I think it is wonderful that the bunny is now with you at work Smile and I love your bead - it reminds me of a ripe strawberry I love you

You will have fun with this! For someone like me who doesn't have tons of time to be online it gives me a better opportunity to get to know different people and I love how creative and loving everyone is! They are the most fun!!

This is the fun in secret swaps: you don't know, who will be your swap partner or what you may get, but it will open a new world and you will receive a package filled with love.
The drawings are super cute and I can see, why you love this bead Very Happy

I was working on a bracelet yesterday and it is funny how the red pod goes with other beads.....I have some bumpies I'm putting with it.....didn't get to finish (attempting to restore order in the bead box!) but will post photos soon!! Thank you SO much Mayaa!! (I have to round up some prisms also to include!)
