Send Something Good: The Recap!

Send Something Good Recap 1

I’m so excited to able to share with you guys pictures from the package swap I participated in, Send Something Good!  As I mentioned before, we were each assigned a partner for the package swap.  We then had the next couple of weeks to get to know them through their blog and to put together a package for them.  The real kicker though was that it was a secret!  We weren’t supposed to reveal who we were to our partner so that they would be totally surprised when they got their package :)

My partner was Bethani of Cheers, Bethani and when I read her About page on her blog I discovered that we liked a lot of the same things!  I had a great time shopping for her and putting together her package. Take a look below!

All the little goodies wrapped up and ready to go

I painted this plain white cardboard box with stripes so it would look prettier

Making a card for Bethani

The person who sent my package was the lovely Teaka of Life Like Honey.  First of all, I loved that her package was covered in a bunch of Canadian stamps- it was so cool!  Inside the package I found that she had sent me several thoughtful gifts, including chocolate, magazines you could only get in Canada, and a beautiful scarf (that I’ve gotten so many compliments on!).  Thank you again Teaka! :D

It was so much fun to participate in Send Something Good!  I really enjoyed putting together my package for my secret partner and getting to know her through her blog.  It made me so happy to hear that Bethani loved the package I sent, as I loved the package I received from Teaka!  Thank you again to Gentri Lee, Kaitlyn and Kristy for putting together this amazing project- I’m already itching for the next round! :)

    • Thank you Jamie! I wanted to spruce up the box a little so I thought giving it a new paint job might be fun :)

  • oh em geeeeeee color me jelly, Nnenna! I love packages and I really was so into exchanging packages when I got totally burned a couple of months ago :( Basically, I never got the package I was promised, and I feel like I wasted so much money especially because shipping was so expensive :( BUT!!!! I don’t wanna be negative and I totally am excited for all the goodies that you got!

    • Aww, that really sucks that you got burned in your last package swap- so unfair! :/ You should sign up for the next round of Send Something Good though- the leaders were really good about making sure we send stuff out on time and so many of the packages I’ve seen were amazing :) I bet you would love it!

    and that scarf she sent you really is beautiful…i think i saw a pic of you wearing it on instagram or twitter or something, lol

    • Aww, thanks so much Kaitlyn! I really wanted to put together a pretty package for my partner :)
      Thank you- yes I did post a picture of it on Instagram the first time I wore it! :D
