Cold Hands, Warm Hearts Swap

I got to play along in the one of the most fun little swaps this year! I was a little nervous at first because who and what you get is a total surprise. But I wanted to add a little spice to my life, so I jumped in.

Sandy and Ilene host a swap in November and December to bring a little happiness despite the terrible cold. You send out gloves or mittens and some fun winter goodies and then the best part is... you get some in return!

Here is what I sent Karina:

(badly) Pictured: some cute gloves from Target, a cup with hot chocolate, and a chocolate orange (my favorite Christmas treat!)

I hope you liked it, Kary! And look at the amazing package she sent me (which was all wrapped up!):

I gave a hint or two that I liked mittens... and she was so kind to gift them to me! Along with some cute cupcake wrist warmers. And a pretty flower ring and earrings! This was the best early Christmas gift ever. And we all know those are the best kind of Christmas gifts. :)

I would definitely recommend checking this little swap out next year! That is, if you like amazing gifts, staying warm, and surprises. And if you don't, then I don't know if we can be friends. Just kidding! But srsly.

Happy Wednesday!
