Unfortunately, I never had a chance to post about the new sign up for the October/November Swaparooni before the deadline (it was last night). I finally decided to do this one before the weather is too bad. I had to though since I am the one that suggested these colors.
Here’s what OMSH made for the new swap:
Since I know that Coolbeansmama received her swap from me it is now safe to share photos of the goodies I sent to her.
From left to right: 1) Address labels that I made on my own Handy Dandy computer 2) A cool red notebook 3) M&M magnetic list pad 4) Red M&M note cards 5) Train and ladybug magnets that I put together 6) Apple cider tea 7) Mary Engelbreit note cards 8) Old fashioned animal crackers 9) ladybug stickers 10) Kit-Kat and 100 Grand candy bars and 11) A special scrunchie that I had made on Etsy (by Prissy Princess) with Coolbeansmama’s favorite team and at the top 12) Red Scrub poofs.
Here are some close ups of a few things:
It was so much fun shopping and getting things here and there for Coolbeansmama. Now I can’t wait to make a new friend with the next swap.
Thanks for suggesting the great colors for the new swap. I am so glad they won! ;) I would not have done this swap w/the first suggested theme!
Sandra: Thanks :) I always thought something with silver would be really pretty. I never noticed that someone else thought of silver and blue. I just wrote the trio since it reminded me of winter and snow. I basically wanted something that was really pretty, easy for people to do, and NOT related to a specific holiday that is winter based.
There was only one that I probably would not have participated in this time. Mind you if there is one with orange, I do not think I would be in. Not sure why, but I really do NOT like the color orange. I think the only time I am able to tolerate it is for Halloween.
Thanks again for the package. It was great.
I’m sitting out for this swap but love the colors.
I’m excited to be your swap partner and and honored that I got paired up with the one who suggested the colors!
Coolbeans: It was my pleasure to send the goodies your way. We will miss you this time around. I may have to take a time out during the winter as well. With everything going on and snow coming I will likely take a hiatus until the spring.
Shawna: I am excited to have you as a swap buddy as well. I am itching to head out and about to find things for you. I printed out your like/dislike list to take with me later on. Now if only I could escape from the boys for a little while to shop by myself.
BTW – Your blog is really cute and I have looked at your photos on Flickr as well You have a beautiful house and very touching posts. I hope to comment soon.
