First blogger to blogger package swap

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!

Other participants of this Swap coordinated by Spoolish and Buttons & Birdcages:
