Mailbox Surprise!

So a couple of months ago I joined this Facebook group where everyone gets partnered up with someone and you mail them a box of goodies and they mail you goodies. You know how that works. I haven't done one of these in a super long time so I was kind of excited.

I got partnered up with Lisa from Life to the Full and we had a summer theme. Sadly, I didn't take a picture of the package I sent her, but I remember for sure sending candy that she likes, one of my absolute favorite summer reads and a set of handmade cards. But I just got her package last week and it is lovely!.

My box contained:

  • lots of fun scrapbook stickers, washi tape and stamps
  • two magnetic bookmarks
  • an adorable pair of earrings
  • sparkly headband
  • and a reading journal!! 
I think the reading journal is easily my most favorite thing. I can write some notes as I read books for my reviews. Right now I'm basically doing that on scraps of paper, sometimes the back of receipts or in pencil on the pages of the book and yeah... it's not the easiest. Mostly because sometimes I'm like, "who is leaving this paper everywhere?!" and then I throw it away only remember that it was me leaving the paper everywhere and I pretty much needed that. 

So this will save me. THANK YOU, Lisa!! 

I can't wait to see what next month will bring. I'm trying to think of ideas that I can put into a box but I await my new partner...

Hey Sara !! Haven't left you any comment for quite some time. Nice surprise box !! I have often thought of joining something like this but never have.
Would be fun to look forward to mail instead of dreading it.....(bills)
Take care dear and post a pic or two of that beautiful baby sometime. She must be getting so big.......

Awesome stuff! I just love this swap. I got my package yesterday, and it truly made my day. I'm slacking in getting mine in the mail, but I will do it soon. Maybe we'll get paired up one of these months. :)

I *love* these kinds of swaps!!! It's fun getting packages in the mail and meeting new friends. I'm trying really hard to cut back on blogging-related expenses, so I haven't done a swap in a while. I can live vicariously through photos like yours! ;)

Thank YOU, Sara for the awesome box you sent me! I may or may not have already scarfed the Reese's Cups down. :)

What a fun swap! I'm waiting for my first right now and looking forward to getting something from fun in the mail that isn't bills. Lol

I think I'm in the same swap and I didn't take a picture of my outgoing box either!
