I participated in an ornament exchange like I did last year. I love doing this, I meet a lot of new bloggers this way! Not to mention, collecting a lot of fun oraments, too! This year I sent an ornament to Linda at a la carte who was a fun gal to send to. She and I found out that we like to do pocket letter swaps, so we also exchanged one (to be seen later!)
I was surprised to learn that my swap partner was someone different than Linda. Stephanie, from The Enchanting Rose was my partner. She has a beautiful blog and also owns Rose Petal Blessings, an Etsy shop. She's taking a little break before the big holiday rush, but check back after November 23 and see what the shop is offering!
First, my box was beautifully wrapped and packaged. I didn't show it to you as it had both our names and addresses on it. You know, safety reasons. Trust me that it was lovely!
On top, inside was the ornament, a white sparkly snowflake with a pink ribbon to hang it from the tree. There's a breast cancer ribbon in the center of the snowflake and in the middle of that is a vintage bauble of crystals and pink stones. Beautiful!
Underneath the ornament was cute gingerbread box holding a darling towel, a gingerbread cookie cutter, candy cane sprinkles, cupcake papers and a bookmark.
Such a sweet swap. Last year I was Vicki's swap partner, the one who organized the exchange. She's a teacher and I love that we met during a swap! Thank you for hostessing us again, Vicki!
