Super Birthday Swap!

I believe that you remember about the birthday swap that was held in celebration of a birthday over at SHAWN'S blog.

Sure, you remember it, right? If you need refreshing, check it out here.

Well, I was lucky enough to get the gorgeous Cadance as my swap person, and boy, did she give me some great stuff! I LOVE getting things in the mail, (have I mentioned that at least eighty times?) almost more than sleeping, so you have to know that I really LOVE IT. And sure enough, this last week, I got this great package and THIS was what was inside:

Fresh, fruity, fragrant and fantastic cards!


I adore smells----(well,.....bad ones are my pet peeve, you know)----and am so into candles---I have them going all the time----with my candle warmer. So, I am lovin the candle, and then, since I am a HUGE Bath and Body shopper----love their soaps, smells and antibacterial products----she sent me a fantastic pomegranate hand soap----smells amazing. Last, but certainly not least---there were some great cards for writing on and sending to those that you are thinking of----so adorable. (Not sure if she made these or not---but they are the cutest!)


Thank you, thank you Cadance and thank you, Shawn, for a successful swap! You gals rock!


I was lucky enough to get Debi over at Girlz A Soul Sista.
She is a super cute gal that loves music, crafting with beads, is into movies, and has an adorable sister! (It was her birthday this week...) I am looking forward to getting to know her better----and will be checking out her blog from time to time....

So----if you get a chance to do a swap----go for it----its downright fun times and you get something in the mail, to boot....

I have never done a swap, but I have always wanted to!

Kado! said...

it was a fun swap!! I'm glad you like the goodies!

...and yes I did make the cards...it is a little somethin' I love to do...I guess it goes hand-in-hand with my obsession of "real mail"

hope you are enjoying your long weekend! ♥

Oooh how absolutely lovely! The candle sounds wonderful, I always have a scented candle burning whenever I am in my bedroom. And yum at the pomegranate soap. Hope you're having a beautiful day :)

Congrats to you on the bling! I love getting things in the mail, too. I need to get in on the ground floor of one of these swaps some day...

Kristin said...

What a lovely swap!

Paige said...

How delightful!

I did a travel swap a year ago, I loved thinking up my package idea and then receiving an amazing package as well. I need to search out another one. Or host one...

miche said...

Shawn, you and your swaps! You get some good stuff :-)

Jewels said...

I've never done a swap, either. Then I read these posts and wonder, 'Why don't I do this?'

And goodness, you've had quite the busy Summer! It flew by, didn't it? Maybe I should go buy some pomegranate soap to make the season linger...

Karen said...

Swaps are so much fun!

I just did a My Favorite Things swap that I'll be blogging about in the next couple of days. It's great to get the chance to get to know someone from blogland and get to learn a little bit about what they are into.

Looks like you got an awesome package!

Great stuff. I'm doing a swap now & trying to patiently wait for my package. It was suppose to be mailed out on 8-31.

Debbie said...

I love having a scent in the house too. You got some great things! I never do those swaps because I am notoriously bad at not carrying through with things.

Vivienne said...

Fabulous!

NICE! I love me some Bath and Body Works and notecards are always a 'score' in my book! :)

Hope you're having a great week!♥
