Etsy Swap 2014: What I Received
It's time to reveal what I received from my partner for the Etsy swap party! Honestly I had so much fun assembling my package that I kind of forgot that I would be receiving something as well. It made it that much more exciting when packages started arriving at my doorstep. That's right, packages, 3 in all. The Etsy pieces came from the sellers with notes and then Lauren sent an extra package directly from her. Which was super cute by the way. It was decked out with drawings and doodles. The crazy part is that I received the coasters and her package on the same day. The mailman even bundled them together.
Backing up a step, I received my goodies from Lauren who is an art teacher and blogs over at Cornwell Fam. I really enjoy her writing style, just read her about page. It will make you giggle and smile while wanting more.
A funny side note, I bought my partner the exact same pencil case. In fact when I purchased it I almost bought myself one as I thought it would be a great pouch for in my purse. I told myself NO, you don't need to spend money on yourself right now, it's time to give. When I got this in the mail I was like 'Oh no' the seller mistakenly sent an extra package. Then I found the note.
I also got this great watercolor print done by Lauren, herself. Watercolor is one of my favorite mediums.
Overall I had a great experience with this swap hosted by Meg and Amy. Not only did I send and receive great goodies, I found two new blogs to read. They both fit in with my style and likes. I will definitely join in on the next swap and highly recommend it.
