Favorite Things Swap

Leeann over at Join the Gossip had a fabulous idea to organize a blog swap where we'd send some of personal faves to a blogger we were paired with...
I've never done a swap, but thought it would be super fun to participate in.
I wasn't disappointed!

Lucky for me, I was paired with the lovely Tessica who blogs at I Fly Like A Bird -- I wasn't a follower before the swap, but I am a HUGE fan now!
{best part of the swap is meeting new people and discovering awesome new blogs!! love it!}

We were encouraged to get to know our partners better by email & by reading their blog.
I could tell right away that I would love Tessica.
She's a vibrant, smart, well-spoken, spunky and adorable woman... with a gorgeous little girl of her own to  boot!  I was excited to share some of my favorite things with her!

And judging from the parcel I received in the mail on Wednesday, I think we have a lot more in common than I could have imagined!

 It all started with this pretty PINK package!

This note...

And all these goodies!

I received:

Lip Balm
Nail Polish
Note cards
A pumpkin scented soy candle
a CD

Love it ALL!!
Funny thing is we sent each other a couple "similar" items!
You check out her blog to see what I sent her!

Thanks so much Tessica!!
I hope this is just the beginning of an awesome bloggy friendship!

And a big THANK YOU to Leeann for organizing the swap!

Here are some of the fantastic songs on the CD she sent...

You can visit the link up here to see what everyone else got!
I know Tessica received my package, her post should be up soon... take a peak on her blog to see what I got for her!

  4. What a fun idea! Blogger friends are the best!!!

  5. Tessica sent you some great stuff. I love that color of nail polish, so fun.

    My swap buddy also got me a pumpkin spice candle, what a great scent right?!

  6. hi dear! i just started a blog recently, please do let me know what you think <3 would love to be able to take art in this type of thing someday!

  7. Swaps are especially fun when you get gifts you actually like!

    This is the first time I've heard of the group "First Aid Kit." They have a unique sound.

  8. What a fun concept! I'd love to participate in something like this. :)


I ♥ hearing from you!
