Sometimes the best part of blogging is the relationships you form… which is why I love to participate in any type of blogging swap! I’m sure by now you’ve all seen the Thrift Store Swap that went live at the beginning of July. Well as much fun as that swap was… this swap is completely different! Emilie over at Emilie Lima Burke orchestrated the entire thing… this is how she described it:
The Creative Bloggers Swap will give bloggers and non-bloggers alike the opportunity to send a new friend embellishments, washi tape, and creative goodies! You can send new goodies from your favorite shops or that you make yourself!
Looking for a bunch of posts on DIY & Crafts? I’ve got you covered!

That’s right… it’s the perfect opportunity for a crafter (okay okay hoarder) like me to get some new supplies! In order to participate in the swap a short questionnaire was required… it asked questions like: “what type of crafts do you enjoy” and “what are your favorite colors”. I, of course, answered with scrapbooking for my craft of choice and pink and blue for my colors! With my new craft room I’m hoping to really get back into scrapbooking this year… I have so many pictures to create layouts for!
I was paired with Leah who is one half of the fabulous duo from Life, Love, and Coffee Stains. This is what she sent me!
Isn’t it cute? Leah must have known that fun colored pens are my weakness! I can’t wait to break those puppies out for a trial run! Leah said that she loved blue, green, aquamarine, & teal and was interested in planner scrapbooking! I’ve never heard of planner scrapbooking before so it was fun to learn all about a new craft… I can’t wait to see the pictures of what I sent her! So much crafty goodness!
I had such a fun time with this swap… I loved the excitement of waiting for that fun little package in the mail! What about y’all? Have you ever joined a swap like this? They’re open to bloggers and non bloggers alike so anyone can join! I can’t wait to join another one!
