etsy swap // spring fever



back in February, Megan from Rivers and Roads & Amy from Taking Steps Home announced Etsy Swap 2014! after participating in #greatChristmas2013 & having so much fun, i just had to join in on the etsy swap fun! it is basically a huge round robin gift exchange - i was assigned a participant & someone else was assigned me! and now it is time for the big reveal!


WHAT I SENT:
i was so ecstatic to get Shayla from Little Brave to shop for! i actually just recently "met" her a few months ago & we have a lot of the same tastes! so it was really easy to pick out something for her! the funny thing is that i bought part of her gift & then was looking through her blog & saw the exact same paper straws on her party planning board for Fern's birthday! how perfect is that?!

striped wallet | Elah Tree
be brave card | Rivers & Roads
gold chevron paper straws | Thatch & Thistle
mini travel journal | Happy Dappy Bits



WHAT I RECEIVED:
i couldn't have been more excited the day i got home from work to find this package on my porch from Vicky @ lovely. healthy. whole.! there are few things better than coming home to fun mail from new friends!

leather bracelet | Good Works
fabric earrings | The Crafty Foxes
owl magnets | The Owl Shoppe


i love ALL of it! Vicky has got to be the best stalker of all time! :) this box just screams ME! i have seriously been wanting those adorable owl magnets ever since i first discovered The Owl Shoppe & they are now gracing the door of my fridge! i've been wearing the leather bracelet ever since i opened it & i love the way it fits! and the fabric earrings are so cute & match just about any outfit i wear!


did you participate in #etsyswap2014?
