Cold Hands, Warm Hearts Swap

Last year I didn't get a chance to participate in the Cold Hands, Warm Hearts swap, an amazing idea put together by Sandy of Sandy a la Mode and Ilene of Much Love, Illy.  This year, though, I couldn't wait to find out who my partner was.

I was super excited to be introduced to Stephanie of Femmena Mala.  One of the questions asked of us when filling out our swap forms what are top 3 favorite things in the whole wide world were.  Upon reading and finding out that one of Stephanie's was Harry Potter I knew we were a perfect match!

And so Stephanie and I not only became swap partners but we became friends as well, which I think is the best part of being in a swap.  So when I got Stephanie's package in the mail, I could barely stop to take pictures I was so excited!

 The pretty box

 Stephanie's note to me

The prettily wrapped packages

 Pretty presents
A necklace and ring from Stephanie's Etsy shop
A Christmas ornament (the K)
A teal colored mug
A candle that smells so delicious I could eat it
A scarf and, of course, matching gloves!

Stephanie, thanks so much for the sweet gifts!  And also thanks to Sandy and Ilene for introducing me to Stephanie!
