Mother’s Day Box Swap

I’m so excited to be linking up with Liz from Chasin’ Mason, Courtney from Sweet Turtle Soup, and Jenny from The Chronicles of We today with the Mother’s Day Box Swap!

This was my very first box exchange, and it was so much fun! I had a blast getting to know some new bloggers (and non-bloggers) and can’t wait to read everyone’s recaps! Make sure to check out the host’s blogs, because they have lists of everyone who participated!

Since the lovely mama that I sent my box to doesn’t have a blog, I wanted to share what I sent because I had so much fun picking it out!

I picked out a bright infinity scarf (from Target!) and then included nail polish, a Lilly for Target nail file, my favorite hand cream from Mary Kay, an EOS lip balm, and a Starbucks card. My favorite is how I decorated the EOS, I cut a flower on my Cricut Explore and then twisted the parts onto it! I also cut the little notecard on my Cricut.

Now onto what I received!

My box was sent by the lovely Courtney from Sweet Turtle Soup (also one of the hosts!), and she sent an amazing box!

My  box included these awesome face masks (I can’t wait to try them!), pretty paper straws, washi tape (which is pretty much one of my favorite things EVER), donut notecards, chocolate (that I’m not sharing), pale pink nail polish (perfect for my fingers!), and a fun tinted vaseline lip balm (I tried it and it’s awesome). I also love the little fabric pouch that she sent the nail polish and lip balm in, it will be perfect to put my stuff in and then throw in the diaper bag!


Thanks again to the ladies for hosting and organizing this swap, it was so much fun! I can’t wait to participate in another one!

  • I just saw you on instagram and I like getting to see new bloggers. I am one too. I gave my mom from the gift exchange a scarf too. A matter of fact, I almost got her the one you did, but changed my mind last minute. Too funny! I saw you love washi tape. If you need some ideas on how to use it for birthdays check out my site for Washi Tape and Birthdays. You might even like the Daily Mom website. Nice to meet you from Instagram.

    • Thanks so much for commenting Michelle! Sorry I’m so late to replying :) That’s too funny about the same scarf (everyone loves Target!). I will definitely have to check out your site for washi tape ideas and the Daily mom site!

    Oh my gosh, I LOVE washi tape too! Seriously, my sister in law and I have a HUGE collection. My husband laughs every time I pull the boxes out lol. And that scarf… LOVE infinity scarves. I don’t care what the weather is, I will wear one. No joke. Also, those chocolate are AMAZING. I wouldn’t share either! Happy early Mother’s Day!

    • I have an entire wall of washi tape in my basement for my shop and it is sooooooo hard not to go take all of it and use it myself! Thanks again for organizing this swap, it was so much fun!
