Shoebox Swap!

This is the stuff I sent to my partner, Crystal, with a theme of the refreshing colors of blue and green: a notepad and journal, tea, homemade notecards, chocolate sweet and salty snack mix, peppermint spray and tealights.

My mom, who does not have a blog (yet!), asked me to share a photo of the gifts she received from Debbie. Her favorite item was the Cuddle Buddy, which Debbie makes and sells for a good cause--you can read more here.

Now it's your turn to share. Please add a link to the specific swap post, so we can all see your goodies! Thank you to everyone who participated! We're planning on another swap soon, so keep watching for details.
