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

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! :)

You all know how much I love sending and receiving packages because I tend to go on and on about it! When there’s an opportunity to swap letters/packages, I just can’t pass it up. I wanted to share some of the things that have shown up in my mailbox recently :)
When I read about the Shop Swap on Oh Hello Friend, I thought it sounded like a wonderful idea. Etsy shop owners signed up to “swap shops,” meaning we sent each other a package filled with goodies from our shops. My partner was Maggie of Epershands and she’s the sweetest! She sent me beautiful jewelry and accessories that I just love. I’ve already worn my delicate gold locket several times this week :) Thanks again Maggie for swapping with me!
I also received the prettiest journal and cutest card from Stephanie for the Correspondence Club! It came after I did last week’s round-up post, but I wanted to make sure it made an appearance on the blog :) Receiving this journal has inspired me to get back to journal writing, so I’m trying to write a little bit, at least every couple of days.
Now I want to tell you about a package swap that you can all participate in called Send Something Good! This is Round 2 of Package Pals, created by the awesome Gentri Lee (you can read about my experience in Round 1 here). Kaitlyn of isavirtue (one of my favorite shops on Etsy) has created a special line of products for this project, and of course I couldn’t resist picking up a few things! ;) Trust me, it’s a lot of fun and you can go here for all the details!
Tell me: Have you received anything good in the mail lately?
