Blog Swap!

If you didn't get to read my previous post about the gifts I received from Meghan from our blog swap, you can read about it here. Since Meghan received her package from me, I wanted to share the gifts I sent her.

The requirements for the swap included:

1. something homemade

2. something from a thrift store/garage sale/etc.

3. something Christmasy

For my homemade gift, I made a cupcake stand/jewelry-trinket holder.
I got the plate from Marshall's, but they also sell them at TJMaxx and I got the candle stick from Dollar Tree. Super easy and cheap gift idea. Would be great to bake a cupcake and put it on the stand as a fun gift!

The bird cage was my "something from a thrift store" item.

I also found this ornament dish at a thrift store and used it as the "something Christmasy" portion of the gift.
The silver, wire M ornament was also purchased at a thrift store and the other ceramic M was from Hobby Lobby. These were also part of the "something Christmasy" category!

I had a blast shopping for these gifts and I really enjoyed my first gift exchange/blog swap. I plan to participate in many more! Thanks again, Meghan, you were a great partner!
