I participated in a swap recently, that was orchestrated by my buddy Kat. This was SUCH a great idea! (Which of course means I will be stealing the idea for an upcoming swap of my own) The premise was purchasing some of my favorite things that I would in turn send to my swap pal. And the person who got me, sent me some of her top choices. Don't you just love the badge that Kat made for this. She too has discovered the greatness that is Picnik.
So yesterday, after an afternoon at work, I fought traffic all the way home and almost ran out of gas. (I frequently find myself operating my car on gas vapor. It drives hubby crazy.) Anyway, when I finally made it home, there was a package on my doorstep. Woo hoo! I love packages!
And so I tore into that thing, while talking to Shannon (who was insanely jealous that her swap package had not yet arrived). My swap pal is a cool chick named Brandy! She became a grandma for the first time yesterday, so go visit her and check out her gorgeous granddaughter.
Anywho, here's the box of goodies that Brandy sent me.
She included a tiara (because every woman should feel like a princess), some Fall leaf salt/pepper shakers, a beautiful pair of red votive holders and some yummy gingerbread and pumpkin candles to burn in them. I got some WAY cute mini cookie cutters in Fall shapes, a pair of crazy striped socks (that my oldest is trying to commandeer), a pretty Fall hand towel, some awesome lip gloss and a green pumpkin full of Hershey Kisses. Yummy!!
My many thanks to Kat for orchestrating this swap and to Brandy for being a way cool partner! I only hope that the pal that I mailed to is as happy with her goody box as I am with mine.
