I just LOVE getting things in the mail, especially when they’re not bills. I participated in the 1st Annual Spring Swap hosted by Maryland Pink and Green and Shopaholic in AL. My swap partner was Jennie at Painted Preppy. I must say, it was a lot of fun to participate. I just love gift giving! I enjoy the wrapping of gifts, but mostly, I love giving a gift that I know someone would like. It also gave me a reason to shop… as if I needed a reason to shop!
Jennie actually sent me the cutest pink and green things. I just told her I loved anything pink and green, and that we had some similar interests in scrapbooking. She actually sent me some items she had made herself: a pink and green painted wine glass, votive, and picture frame, and some pages for scrapbooking as well as a scrapbooking embellishment. She also got me a writing pad and matching pencil- perfect for when I need to jot down things! I know I’ll be using the wine glass quite a bit too! 🙂 Isn’t just too cute???
Jennie has her own website full of preppy items at
And this hand painted Eiffel Tower plate:
And doesn’t this pitcher just make you think of summers out on the back deck? How cute!
My swap gift to her were an assortment of “sweet” related items. I got her a really neat cupcake kit with recipe book and cute cupcake wrappers, cupcake/cake stickers for scrapping, a vanilla cupcake candle (which smelled so delish), notepad and magnets and some yummy M&Ms. I wrapped them up in some pink and green wrapping paper and tied them off with ribbon. What a sweet treat! I hope she enjoyed them!
I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend!!!
