Cozy swap

What a fun time we've had sending and receiving our cozy shoeboxes!

My partner, Amy, put together a fabulous box of goodies for me: a pretty journal, fuzzy pink slippers, a snowman cookie cutter, a scrapbooking kit, homemade hot cocoa with marshmallows, and my favorite things--invitations with a Christmas light design and an eclectic CD from Starbucks.

Here is what I sent Amy: Chai, tealights, foot lotion, socks, stationery, waffle mix, a picture frame and a gift card for her favorite cozy drink--a pumpkin spice latte.

My mom received lots of lovely goodies from her swap partner, Deea. Her favorite item was a mulling spice mix that is part of Deea's family's traditional wassail recipe.
OK, swappers, now it's your turn to show off your cozy treats--just link below. Thanks for joining the fun!

Carrie! I loved seeing what you sent and what you received, all the goodies look so festive! And, mom's too! How fun!

I initially sent the wrong link so I hope you can delete that one. :( Anyway, I was so excited to receive my stuff from my swap partner, Jennifer. I received a Natalie Grant Christmas cd, a pumpkin decoration, ornaments that included a star, a mitten, Santa, and a wreath; an adorable angel, two candles, and acorn decorations. :)

This was such fun, I can't wait to do it again!

I was so blessed to participate in this swap. It was my first one ever and I loved getting to know Ruth most of all. I hope I get to do more in the future!

I sent Ruth:
White Chocolate body butter, a handpainted candleholder with a spiced pear candle, some of our homemade tea, a teaball, homemade mulling spice, our family's wassail recipe, cozy slippers, a bar of homemade goat's milk soap in Gingerbread scent, and chocolate rasperry hot cocoa.

Thank you for all the work you put into this!

This looks like a lot of fun! I found you through the link from Amy's blog (Mom Advice).

Jenny V and I will have to wait a little longer to post our link - I knew when I posted my stuff out on Nov 9th that it might go beyond the Mr Linky date for the swap - not surprising really as we're posting between Australia and Pennsylvania, LOL. So I'll pop back in here and sign in just as soon as we each receive our packages :)

Cheers,
Lizzie

Thank you for hosting:)

This was very fun and sort of "mysterious" trying to figure out what a "stranger" would like:)

Saralyn had my name and her package has arrived at my friend's house--I just don't have it yet:)

Thank you
Lizzie

This swap was so fun. I had fun putting together the cozy box for Jane, and learned some interesting things along the way about Australian Christmas. I was so excited when my box arrived, it was full of wonderful homemade items. I hope to be able to do this again.
