Getting something in the mail that is not a bill is so much fun. One way to ensure that you get fun stuff in the mail is to join a swap or two. I love participating in swaps because not only do I get to make fun things to give to others, I also get great things in return! I recently joined the Dotty Swap at Cutie Pie Cottage. My swap partner was Roselle from Seaside Rose Creations. Here are the goodies I sent to her.
I made a pretty pink polka dot box using a heart shaped chocolate box. There is a frosty pink rose in the middle, 2 sparkly charms and a pink oval that says love. There is a sweet pink ruffly ribbon around the box, lace and pink pearls on the top. I filled it with 3 clothespins decorated in polka dot ribbon and an ornament that has an "R" and pink polka dot ribbon.
I also made a card with red cupcake liners. The back of the card has red paper with tiny white polka dots. Here is the box filled with the goodies. I also sent her a cute little box of conversation hearts!
I have long admired Roselle's beautiful rose creations and I was so excited to receive my package from her. Here is everything that she sent me all laid out.
In one little bag, there was a pretty white paper rose, a ribbon rose and this gold "inspire" medallion. It was tucked inside with 3 pages out of a vintage French book.
Another little bag contained 3 tiny little clothes pins with polka dots...great minds think alike wouldn't you say?!
And now I can say that I am the proud owner of one of Roselle's beautiful, hand painted creations! I just love this little vintage salt shaker that she painted pink and added a sweet little rose bud to. I love everything that she sent me and I hope she enjoys what I sent her as well!
Thank you to Cutie Pie Cottage for putting this fun Dotty Swap together. They are always so much fun! Thank you to Roselle for my wonderful new treasures! I can't wait to do another swap soon...if you haven't tried one yet, I highly recommend it!
