Swap Time

My friend Wendi over at Because Wendi Said So hosted a Favorite Things swap last month. It's my first one and I must admit, it was quite fun. I love receiving gifts. What girl doesn't?
My partner was a great girl - Erica from Butterfly Kisses. If you don't already know her, go over & check out her cute blog. She's a busy mom who always keeps her focus on where it needs to be.

Now, let's get to the goodies.


Just look at all of that wonderful stuff.

We have chocolates, a cd, a Nicholas Sparks book, scrapbooking goodies, soaps,

& cute little post its.

Erica put together a great package & I want to send her oodles of "thank you's!"

Can you see anything different in this picture from the one above? (look carefully)


I just had to try it.....it was delicious. Thanks again Erica!!

Thanks for hosting Wendi - it was fun.

A swap is when you exchange little gifts with others in the blog community. This was my first & it was a lot of fun.
Usually someone hosts & gets everything together (Wendi, in this case). They match up partners, collect address info, etc. & sends out the relevant info to each partner. She set a date that everything had to be shipped by so everyone would get their stuff around the same time.
Sometimes they can have themes - hers was a Favorite Things Swap. I've also seen Fall themes, Christmas, cookies, aprons, lots of different ideas.
It's a great way to get to know other bloggers that you may not have stumbled across yet.
Hope this answers any questions.
