AMY and MEGAN got together to host a little swap that turned out to be a lot of fun!
I've known about etsy for quite a while and I've encouraged my crafty friend Heidi to start a shop of her own on there. Until this swap I had never really looked around or bought anything from the shops.
Well, now I know what the etsy madness is all about! There are so many great shops with CUTE, QUALITY items that would make great gifts.

My package was PERFECT. Seriously, I couldn't have picked out a better gift! As I was browsing, I came across this shop that had these zippered pouches but then I found out that the person I was matched up with OWNED the shop! Let's just say that ELIZABETH really outdid herself!
Elizabeth sent me:
A Starbucks card which I am really looking forward to using!
A set of notecards from in the mailbox - I love the map theme!
The exact zippered pouch from ElahTree I was planning to get my partner!
On top of all that, when I opened the package I got so excited! I saw gold and purple and gray and string...I knew it was going to be good!
Thank you, thank you, thank you, Elizabeth! I absolutely love everything you sent my way!

When it came to sending some gifts to my partner, I went back and forth on getting the items shipped to me so that I could pack a box and then send it on to her...but then I decided that it would be more fun for her if I shipped each thing straight to her so that she would get a series of packages. That's fun, right?
Samantha (who happens to run ElahTree) was my partner and I really enjoyed "stalking" her in order to figure out what I should get for her! As I was shopping I realized that she reminds me a lot of my friend Anna. In other words, I kind of feel like I "know" her...
I sent Samantha:
A thank you stamp from paper sushi.
A set of note cards from wit & whistle.
A couple of nail polishes that I thought would look great on her and a little note introducing myself.

Thanks for hosting this Spring FUN, Amy and Megan!!! All of the shopping and goodies were great, but what I enjoy most about these things is a chance to meet new people!
