My Favorite Things Swap

I participated in Kelly’s Favorite Things Swap and I had so much fun doing it! My switch partner was Nicole and she’s amazing! She wrap everything up so cute in brown paper and red/white twine. Adorable!

I wish her blog wasn’t private because she has so much to share. Her blog is so feminine and sophisticated – I felt like I was a grown up while I was reading it. {{giggle}}

These are Nicole’s favorite things she sent me:

1. Canvas bag filled with Burt Bee’s lip balm and bubble bath.
2. Book – I loved the chemistry in the P.S. I Love You movie so she got me the book.
3. Blue album – she loves making memories and keeping them close. (blue for my boys)
4. She loves to embroider and made me the 6 B’s quote from President Hinckley. {{love it!}}
5. She loves to make lists and send this cute notebook. I’m a list maker too, so this will really come in handy.
6. Rubber stamps – she loves to create cards, scrapbook, and other paper crafts. {{me too!}}

Nicole, I LOVE it! Thank you so much for taking the time to put together such a wonderful and thoughtful package. It was such a treat to receive!

This is what I sent Nicole. I choose to go with a black, white, and red theme because red is her favorite color and I was completely inspired by the black and white Audrey Hepburn photos on her blog.

I really need to get some new favorites. But, alas I picked my tried & true favorites that I’ve blogged about many times before. I tried to tweak them a bit to reflect more Nicole’s style.

{{Yes, me totally sucking in!!}}

I made her a “Blog Babe!” t-shirt in bling like RO and I made for our birthdays. I tried to keep it small because Nicole has more of a sleek style.

I made her my favorite “For my Friend” cards. This has special meaning to me because it was the first homemade card I ever received.

Luggage tags with Audrey Hepburn on them. (Nicole’s favorite actress.)

We both love to read and I feel so feminine when I read with a cute book mark. So I made her 2 Beaded Bookmarks.

Red square necklace. I call this my t-shirt necklace because it’s the perfect size to just pull over my head when I want to be casual but still feel cute.

I also sent her an Abba mix CD because we both love music and she saw Mama Mia recently.

Oh what a fun swap! Thanks Kelly for putting it together – you rock as always.
