Swapoween Reveal.

Recently I participated in another swap by CG Swaps, this one was their Swapoween swap. It was a bunch of fun, and great because I love decorating for Halloween. I was paired with Beth from Printcess & Living a Goddess Life who happens to be a host of the swap. She put together a really awesome and thoughtful box.

Local Flavor Swap Reveal.

Awhile back I posted that I was going to participate in the Local Flavor Swap hosted by CG Swaps. I was paired up with Kaylee from Chair in the Shade. To check out what I sent her visit her blog here. We are both from the Midwest, neighbors really (Iowa & Wisconsin), live in the country, and work in healthcare. It turned out we actually had quite a bit in common and I had a blast getting to know her. When I received the package in the mail I couldn’t wait to open it up and see what goodies she had picked out.

Local Flavor SwapKaylee picked out some really awesome items to send. The package included a note and postcard. Locally made sheep milk soap in an almond scent, it smells really good.  A handmade pot holder/hot pad and embroidered towel. Locally made pure maple syrup and cranberry raspberry jam. I can’t wait to make some pancakes to try out that syrup! Also she informed be that Wisconsin is the number one producer of cranberries in the US, which I didn’t know! An Amish cookbook, we live pretty close to Amish country also. A handmade candle in a mason jar that smell just like Macintosh Apples. I put it in my kitchen and have already got so many complements on it! Because every knows that if you visit Wisconsin you have to grab some cheese and apples :). And last but not least, cow shape sprinkles! So cute!

As usual I had a great time participating in the swap and can’t wait until the next one!

Favorite Color Swap Reveal.

This month I participated in The Favorite Color Swap hosted by CG Swaps. I was paired up with Kendahl from The Stepmom Chronicles for the swap. I had a lot of fun getting to know her. This swap was a bit more difficult than some that I have participated in because you had to pick item you thought your partner would like BUT they had to be in their favorite color. Obviously, my favorite color is pink. Turns out Kendahl’s is hot pink. Check out her blog to see what I got her.

Kendahl was great at picking out items in pink that she thought I’d like. I loved what she picked out! So what did I get? Check it out:
