My Secret Santa Apronista Swap Package

I am participating in the fun Secret Santa Apron Swap over at The Flirty Apron Swap.  I had some kind of bad luck this time around though!  I made up my apron with care, thought of all the cute little gifts I wanted to include, wrapped everything with love and care and then boxed it up to go on its merry way to my secret partner.

I made a very quick stop at the grocery store with my 4-year-old grandson on the way because I promised him a candy bar if he would go with me to the post office.  We got out of the car and I used the automatic key lock to lock up my car.  We were only in the store for a few minutes but when we came back to the car the back door was ajar and the box was gone off of the back seat.  Apparently when we got out we didn't get the back door closed and someone helped themselves to the package.  The only thing I could think is that maybe they really were in need of a really cute apron!

So I finally figured out what I wanted to do the second time around and whipped up another cute apron if I do say so myself!  I went back to the store and purchased some more appropriate gifts and then did the whole boxing and wrapping everything up again.  This time I went straight to the post office without making any stops and got it mailed off again.

So sorry swap partner!  I really didn't forget you I just got a little bit off track and had to start over again.  The post office assures me that you will receive your gift no later than Saturday.  So happy swapping.
