Spring has Sprung


Recently, I joined forces with Brandy to participate in her Cheer Up Swap so we could all get happy about the impending arrival of Spring. I love swaps because I love to get surprise packages in the mail and I love to make new bloggy friends. I was so excited when I was paired up with Cerise!

Craft Cherry

I've gotten to know Cerise and I'm here to say that she's way cool! She & I have a lot in common and so I literally squealed with joy when the postman delivered my swap package from her today.

I love opening a box and seeing bright colors!

Look at all of this stuff!

And then I spent 10 minutes unwrapping each item and giggling with delight. I love every single thing that she picked out for me! There were scrapbooking supplies, an adorable embellished magnet, a decoration that I've already put on my living room mantle and some adorable post-it notes adorned with A's. And then there were a few things that were my favorites.

I absolutely love this frame and the quote inside is AWESOME. It says "I've never seen a smiling face that was not beautiful."

And then, I wept with joy when I saw that not only did she send me chocolate treats, but they're (wait for it) from Britain!

My new friend. You are the best!

My many thanks to Brandy for taking on the hosting duties and to Cerise for being such a great partner! And not only did I come out of this swap with a great box of goodies, but 2 brand new friends. What a great way to start Spring!
