About a month ago one of my friends from graduate school, Miche, from Buttons & Birdcages asked if I'd like to join this blogger package swap. I've always admired her creative refashions. Since I'm still pretty new to this blogging world I am very grateful to Miche for reaching out to me and encouraging me to be involved! As soon as I heard about this package swap with other bloggers who are just all so vibrant and creative, I was instantly super excited for this opportunity. I love giving presents and meeting new people, so I replied in simply moments that I wanted to be a part of this!
For this blogger package swap I was matched with Zhenya from BeingZhenya. It was a lot of fun reading her blog because she does a superb job of infusing creativity, fashion, and positivity into her posts. She is also an incredible thrift shopper! From what I've learned, that is definitely a skill.
The box that my package came in was very securely wrapped... there was no way the contents were going to get out without the aid of scissors or a knife. Zhenya was right, I LOVE my package!
I was immediately drawn to this beautifully crocheted blue clutch. It is so even, has nice pattern, and is just adorable!
Aside from the blue clutch, here are my other goodies:
Buttons -- I can totally use this for my various sewing projects! They feel of good quality and are nice colors.
Trim -- I can see myself using this for a scrapbook in the future! maybe a scrapbook documenting all my projects from 2014?
Cute fabric flower brooch and clip -- Instant accessories!
Elf Maple Sugar Luscious Liquid Lipstick -- Such a nice neutral color, definitely a nice product to keep in my cute clutch :)
The latest MPLS St Paul magazine-- It's such a thoughtful gift to receive something from where she is and I do love to read!
I also just adore the card and envelope that was included. Where in the world does one get a hold of these?!
This clutch deserves its own photo, it is just beautiful.
Go to Zhenya's blog to read up on what I sent her!
It is amazing what all these bloggers are able to accomplish and they are all so inspiring!
