2014 Swaps Galore!

This was my first year experiencing the Christmas season as a blogger, and it has been so much fun!

I was lucky enough to not only host a very successful mug swap with Katie over at Cup of Tea, but I also participated in an ornament exchange with Della at Della Devoted, and a wonderful card swap with the ladies over at the Sequin Notebook.

The greatest thing about all these swaps? They are open to everyone! I'm sure all of these will be an annual thing (I know the mug swap will be!) so make sure you keep a look out next year to get to participate in all the fun, too.

 M & B are doing a link up for their card swap, which was such a wonderful idea! I thought I would also share with you guys all the other goodies from the other swaps, too.

For M&B's card swap,  I was partnered with the lovely Ashley at Girl Talk. I've loved getting to know her a little better through her blog, and her and her fiancĂ© have such an adorable Christmas card! Seriously, Jay let me know we need to do our Christmas cards like that next year, so that's saying something.

M & B also sent a card to everyone that was a part of the swap, and their card is great! I love the idea of sending cards out for the blog, definitely something I will be doing next year.

I had two partners for our mug swap this year, and each got some super cute mugs. I am in love with the sweater mug my partner Daisy sent me, and Julia sent me the Wizard of Oz, which has always been one of my fave musicals. I foresee both getting a lot of use.

And last, but not least, was the ornament exchange. Amy did a wonderful job, the knitting ornament is so unique but fits so perfectly with my downtime hobbies. Juliet loves it, too, so I mean that alone makes it perfect, right?

Did you participate or would want to participate in a swap in the future? I would highly recommend it!


  1. Yay - thanks so much for joining up with us! We had a blast hosting this swap and it will definitely be an annual tradition! I love the card that you received from Ashley and thank you for the sweet words on our card :) I also love the idea of a mug swap - I'll definitely be joining in on that one next year because I'm a bit obsessed with mugs! Hope you have a Happy Holidays!! xoxo, - M @ The Sequin Notebook

    1. Glad to hear you will be doing it again, it was a lot of fun! :) And the mugs were seriously fun, too. Happy Holidays!
