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:
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!
Creatives Box Swap Reveal
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. 🙂
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. 🙂
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!!
