i thought jess' swap, "colours of the rainbow swap" was a brilliant idea! pick a colour and whoever gets you, puts together a package with that color as the theme + vice versa. I actually missed the deadline but jess emailed me and said there was someone else who wanted to play along (and missed the deadline... us slackers!) and when she told me it was Karina, i was even more excited!
we're already dear friends and have sent things to each other in the post before. this was going to be fun!
Kary chose the colour RED. Here's what i sent off to her & her 7 year old Miguelito:
^i was so happy when they had Starburst with just the reds + pink, rose stickers, red frame for a family photograph, pink argyle socks (i also found a pair of spider man grippies for Miguelito that's not pictured), red nail polish, strawberry cheesecake lip gloss, a rose ring, keep calm and carry on card, and a Frida tea towel i fell in love with when i saw it on Loud Mouse.
my color was PINK. i just knew Kary and her sweet little boy Miguelito were going to spoil me, and spoil me they did:
i already fell in love with the packaging / outside and inside:
leaves her papi picked up for me in Central Park
i love handmade cards & the pretty in pink reference!
the one Miguel made me:
delicious autumn! leaves from Central Park.
pink ballet flats to dance around in
^flower stationary, electric guitar wallet, water bottle, apple lotion, nail polish, lipgloss all in the pretty butterfly makeup bag. i opened the little wallet to an a sweet surprise! oh how i love elvis.
check out this awesome top! Kary said it was love at first sight and she thought of me. I love it!!!
i LOVED everything! it was such a fun idea for a swap. We laughed because we both sent each other nail polish, lip gloss, and socks. i love it!
thank-you so much for the rainbow fun Kary & my sweet sweet Miguelito xoxo & thank-you Jess for fitting us in *wink
