CIC Team Gift Exchange

The other day, I received this lovely package in the mail.

It was from my Etsy CIC teammate and leader, Linda.  Knowing that she makes beautiful art, as well as greeting cards, magnets and other items, I could hardly wait to see what was inside.

Linda took all my hints about what I liked (blue, useful items, kitchen and household goods) and put them together in finding this lovely little iris trivet.

She also included one of her fabulous cards, the blue cat print.  It makes me smile every time I see it, the cat looks so old and wise.  I'm really enjoying this team gift exchange--it helps us get to know one another and appreciate each other's gifts and talents even more!  It also goes to show that a gift need not be big and expensive to be thoughtful.

If you have a moment, please go check out the other wonderful items made by the Etsy Collaborators in Cahoots Team.  I'm sure you will find the perfect, unique gift for a friend or loved one.

  3. Oh, yes, I use tea bags and loose leaf teas--all kinds really!

  4. One of the best things about Etsy is the making of swap friends!
