Creatives Box Swap Reveal

It’s finally time, box swap reveal time!! I cannot wait to reveal my Creatives Box Swap goodies with you, as well as check out all the other Creatives Box Swap reveals!

You may recall that Bev (Linkouture) and I hosted a box swap for creatives. I was inspired by her book The Busy Mom’s Guide to Creativity (affiliate link). I don’t want any of us to lose our creativity mom or not, we need to keep our creative juices flowing. Maya Angelou said it best:Creatives Box Swap| You can't use up creativity, The more you use, the more you have. Maya Angelou

So, in our attempt to keep our creative friends creating it was time to encourage and get swapping! We’re not done though!! Bev and I are still on a creative roll and this time we’re asking Mamas to share their creative side with the #CreativeMomLife Instagram Challenge starting July 1 – July 14th.

Box Swap Reveal

I was paired up with my sweet friend Ashley of Happy. Pretty Sweet. Ashley is also a HUGE happy mail lover- score! She’s also crafty, fashionable, sweet, and an avid book reader. I enjoy reading her blog, it always makes me happy, which is pretty sweet ;). For the past couple months she’s been writing a series that I’m enjoying about her time as an actress in LA. I think you’ll want to check that out after you finish checking out the swap reveals. So anyway… let’s see what Ashley sent me!

I love that Ashley gave me another level of suspense with the darker tissue paper. I couldn’t wait to tear through the paper to see what was neatly wrapped up for me. 🙂

Check out the goodies I received from my #CreativesBoxSwap partner.| Blogger Perks :)

Here’s what I got! 1) A beautiful card with a lovely message inside. 2) Washi tape- you can never ever go wrong with that. 3) The Imaginary World of _______, it’s an art journal. 4) Heart Pencil. 6) HANDMADE EARRINGS. 🙂 7) Colorful Pens to help with journaling.

Here is a close up of the pencil. Isn’t this AWESOME!! This may sound weird but…. it smells really good. When I saw it I thought Poe, which made me think maybe I don’t want to use it, I want to keep it forever. 🙂

Happy Pretty Sweet Handmade Earrings

These beauties were handmade by Ashley! She made them out of clay, which my youngest daughter claimed (although she still hasn’t pierced her ears). My youngest daughter is the clay/jewelry designer in our house and she’s ready to make earrings too. 🙂

So there you have it friends, Ashley sent me some really great goodies to get me creating. I’ve already started in my journal. 🙂

Thank you, Ashley!!

  2. So crazy that the heart pencil smells good! And I love the earrings she made, too =) Thanks for sharing what you got, looking forward to seeing the other posts!

    1. It really does smell good. It’s not like a school pencil smell, more like a man’s cologne. The earrings are too cute, right? 🙂 I’m so happy to have been paired with Ashley. 🙂
      XOXO

  3. I love Ashley, too. Her gifts are creative and fun. I love the idea of the box swap. I promise I will participate next time. I just don’t want to flake on anyone right now with it being my busy season. Sending lots of positive vibes and uber creativity to everyone right now. xoxo

    1. Ashely is such a sweetheart, I’m so lucky to have crossed paths with her. 🙂
      No worries. I totally understand, summer is busy. I look forward to having you swap with us in the fall. 🙂
      I’ll take all the vibes!! Thank you, sweet lady!
      XOXO

  4. Ashley is so talented. And I love this box she made for you.
    Scarlet is obsessed with writing notes using pictures. Like drawing a photo of an eye, a heart, and then a u for “I love you.”
    Well she recently gave me one and instead of a cartoon heart in the middle, it was a heart. Like that heart pencil.
    Impressed me so much!

  5. A box swap is so much fun! Ashley picked out some great things! Oh, I’m loving the pencil! I like package and presentation myself and I like the effect of the darker tissue paper too.
