Valentine's Day Swap

I was soo excited when Carly from Musings of a Wanderer and Bella from Bella and the City announced that they we're doing a little swap box for the season full of love!

I've seen a few swap boxes around the blogosphere and have been dying to try one and dip my toes into the big blogging pond. And I am so happy that I did because who I got paired with is an absolute sweetheart
I got paired with Julia over at Grace Makes New and I am so happy that we got paired and am now following along with her.

She bakes cakes on the side, loves coffee, and she's shared how she met her hubby. I feel like our husbands would be friends with each other and then we can actually hang out too. I mean, she is a Florida gal!
There was so much goodness and awesomeness (is that a word? It is now) in one box that I had a smile on my face for 3 days straight. I mean glitter, ribbon, weekly notepad for my fridge, AND a container to put all of my chalk markers in!! It's like she knew what I needed before I even knew I needed them. 
What was in my swap box:
  - Glitter heart stickers and labels
  - Bakers twine
  - "This week" magnetic notepad
  - Sticky notes
  - Crafting ribbon
  - Pencil/marker/whatever I want it to hold holder
  - Heart confetti!!
I definitely took advantage of the "this week" notepad right away. I'm now going to be using it for planning out my meals for the week. This was I have it staring at me in the face in two places! On my fridge and in my planner.

Or as Blake likes to say: "Now I can plan out all of my activities!"

Yeah... that too.

Thank you to Carly and Bella for organizing this! It was amazing!
