Cold Hands, Warm Hearts Swap

Last year I didn’t get a chance to participate in the Cold Hands, Warm Hearts swap, an amazing idea put together by Sandy of Sandy a la Mode and Ilene of Much Love, Illy.  This year, though, I couldn’t wait to find out who my partner was.

I was super excited to be introduced to Stephanie of Femmena Mala.  One of the questions asked of us when filling out our swap forms what are top 3 favorite things in the whole wide world were.  Upon reading and finding out that one of Stephanie’s was Harry Potter I knew we were a perfect match!

And so Stephanie and I not only became swap partners but we became friends as well, which I think is the best part of being in a swap.  So when I got Stephanie’s package in the mail, I could barely stop to take pictures I was so excited!

 The pretty box

 Stephanie’s note to me

The prettily wrapped packages
 Pretty presents
A necklace and ring from Stephanie’s Etsy shop
A Christmas ornament (the K)
A teal colored mug
A candle that smells so delicious I could eat it
A scarf and, of course, matching gloves!
Stephanie, thanks so much for the sweet gifts!  And also thanks to Sandy and Ilene for introducing me to Stephanie!

    I'm really looking forward to the arrival of my parcel. It's {honest to god!} coming from the North Pole!

    I had a fabulous time putting together my parcel for the swap, too. Hope my partner loves everything I sent.
