Swap Bop

So, my first swap I participated in was a huge success!  I am now in love with swaps.  Yes, love I say.   I participated in Just Because You're Lovely Swap by Gracie from Gracie Bella Butterfly.   Blanca from Sweet Lime and Savory Snack was my oh so fabulous partner in crime.  First, what I sent her:
The Loot:
Vintage postcards
I Love You Necklace
Stationary
Flower Clip
Silicone Stamps (have you used them?)

What I received:


My Loot:
A Jewelry holder
Black Flower Clips
Dr Pepper Chapstick (my fave)
Flower Change Purse
Polaroid Magnets (How cute are those!!!)

Thank you Blanca from Sweet Lime and Savory Snack! You were a lovely swap partner.  Anyone know of any good swaps going on right now?  I'd love to do another!

Be sure to enter in my giveaway {HERE}.
