I got my present from my swap partner today! My swap partner is Sage from Des Moines! Along with a super wonderful note about her, her mom and places that are almost familiar she sent these wonderful items.

Sage mentions that she and her mother both love baskets. They are a passion of mine as well. When I lived in North Dakota I learned to make baskets from a friend!
