One of my most favorite things about online communities is their love for swaps. Swaps for holidays, swaps with themes, or swaps just for fun~ they are glorious and heart warming. Doing a swap with someone or a group of people is a great way to make friends, get your craft on, and spoil someone with goodies.
When I saw that Illy and Sandy were doing a swap I was so excited to join! It's theme was Cold Hands Warm Hearts. What a great idea for the winter time!!
I was paired up with Liana from Just Us Folk and we had a fun time getting to know each other, emailing and Twittering at each other, and making a packages of awesome surprises for each other.
Yesterday we both received our packages and I just love my package. LOVE it!
Liana sent me gorgeous white fuzzy gloves with interchangeable bows! OMGee they are beautiful and so so so warm. My package also contained her favorite book Blue Highways: A Journey Into America, Cinnamon Dolche coffee mix, apple cider, chai tea, and Werther's candies.
The thought of curling up on the couch with a blanket, cup of my new coffee, and reading my new book just sounds divine! Liana said that book was her favorite, so I look forward to reading it. *^_^*
The cold was nipping at my face this morning, but my hands had never been warmer or so cozy than in my new gloves.
Thank you Liana! You're so sweet!
