Valentine's Swap

About a month or so ago, I happened again upon a blog site I sort of hadn't been reading regularly. This site again generously offered to organize a "Valentine Blogger Friend Swap". The idea was that you just sign up and Kailani (from An Island Life) paired you up with a fellow blogger. From there you were to just run with it, with your new friend........

Last year I met Vader's Mom this way, and got a great "Pirate y" gift as well. I am still a fan of her blog.

This year I met Emma, in England. She lives in a cool part of seaside England. She has a start-up business with really beautiful products.

I received her swap gift 15th Feb, impressive given the 2 or 3 week interaction. Sadly, I don't think she has mine yet - given the cost of Paradise Post.... I sent it really "snail mail" :(

Her box held a great collection of her creativity; her hand made cards were/are just beautiful, plus other handmade gems. As well, there was a trove of other items she thought I would like (including a great assortment of chocolates :)). She really thought about this & I loved it all- the box was a true treasure box full of exquisite surprises.

Here is a picture (amongst some other Valentine's items... the whole looked very festive) of her gift.

How FUN! :) Are those little itty bitty bottles of bubbly I see there? Looks like she didn't forget a THING! :)
