I was paired with Stephanie from Sand and Starfish! Stephanie, her hubby and their beautiful little girl live in Panama City Beach, Florida, so I was initially stumped on what to get for her. I love Stephanie’s breezy beach babe style, amazing and sweet crafting skillz, and covet her long, shiny blond locks.
When her package arrived in the mail, I definitely squealed. Who wouldn’t? A sweet note written (legibly, even! Sorry, Stephanie! My chicken scratch is an ineffective communication tool at best) on the back of an awesome Florida postcard (currently living on the fridge – I love me some postcards!), packages tied up with vintage bed sheets dyed pink, pink and red tissue paper… It’s as though she climbed into my brain and took a look around.
I love EVERYTHING in the package. The gloves are probably the best gloves I’ve ever owned, and go perfectly with my current outerwear obsession – puffy vest over denim jacket. And the sparkly yarn and ombre look is fabulous! I will get a whole lotta use out of these gloves because they are so fab… but also nice and toasty!
The bright running socks are going to get a lot of use, especially since they are so cushy and comfortable – I even have a jacket that matches the teal socks perfectly – fitness outfit! I am thrilled to have two new pink lip glosses, an adorable candy pink lipstick and nail polish to pinkify my life, too. One can never have enough lip gloss, and I always forget to transfer my glosses from one purse to the next – now, I can put one in each bag I use regularly, and never have to worry about winter chapped lips again.
The cats adore their new Santa toy – Norman couldn’t stay away for any of the pictures I tried to take, and that’s exactly the way it should be. Cats are so much cuter when they’re playing!
Thank you so much, Stephanie! I love everything, I’m so pumped to have a new blog friend, and this swap was great!
