Spread the Love ~ Favorite Things Swap

I’m so excited! Mamarazzi hosted her THIRD Favorite Things Swap over at Our Dandelion Wishes and my box arrived today from my swap partner Diana at Forgetfulone! I love the pastel pink wrapping, it’s so sweet.

And such a wonderful box. It turns out her favorite things are some of mine too! She sent me this awesome Sweet Pea candle from Bath & Body Works, a place I truly love, but is 2 hours away so I don’t get there often. There is also a bottle of their Clean Linen signature line bubble bath that I will use sparingly. Both of those scents are 2 of my all time favorites from Bath & Body Works. She included one of my favorite candy bars, Three Musketeers, an adorable kitten notebook, the Woman’s Day magazine that I ‘didn’t’ pick up at the checkstand the other day and this cute Martha Stewart Gumdrop scrapbook kit. I love all of it Diana. Thank You soooooooooooo much!!

Sh also included this cute poem to be sung to the theme of My Favorite Things!

Cute little gift bags
and candles for smelling.
Sweet pea’s the fragrance
that’s made for your dwelling.
Fine fluffy chocolate
a smile always brings.
These are a few
of my favorite things.

Scrapbooking photos
and making them pretty,
writing in notebooks
adorned with a kitty.
Making to-do lists
a smile always brings.
These are a few
of my favorite things.

When I’m burned out,
when I’m worn out,
when I’m feeling sad,
an hour of reading,
a hot bubble bath,
and then I don’t feel
Sooooo bad!

Diana and I have been bloggy friends for quite some time now, so I was really excited to be paired with her for this swap. Now since her box was delivered today I can disclose it’s contents too. We have so many of the same likes I was able to pick out things with her in mind that are my favorites. too Diana is a Disney ornament nut (and so am I) and I found this set of Hallmark Mickey Mouse train ornaments that I really hope she doesn’t already have. I also included my favorite pomegranite & papaya soak beads and leaves from Cuccio so she could pamper herself with a foot soak and pedicure. I also included some of my favorite scented cottage made soaps, and loofa a couple of my handmade Christmas bulbls, one of my favorite book ~ the Notebook by Nicholas Sparks which I thought would be a great summer read, a cute fat quarter of fabric and ribbon for scrapping, a spice infuser for soups and stew, a knit coaster, a photo frame, kitten kitchen magnet, a sweet smelling candle, note cards as well as a handmade sketch journal and a cute pink daily journal. I was so late coming back from my trip that I didn’t get to wrap as cute as she did.

final blog signature.

FUN! i didn’t realize you and Diana were already bloggy friends. maybe that is why i felt you would be a good match…i just sensed it! (;

Ya know, these swaps are a LOT of work, but I love when people receive their packages and love what they get. Just knowing that over 100 women all over the United States are receiving packages of awesomeness this week thrills me!! Not to mention the bloggy friendships that are forming, it’s just way too cool!

I am deciding between a Red, White & Blue Swap or another Favorite Things Swap for the end of June…did you vote? There is a poll on my sidebar


What fun! I sure hope to have time to participate in some of this kind of fun once I get my summer break! Have a great weekend Tamy 🙂
