Thoughtful Thursdays: Swap Gifts

Thank you to everyone who participated in The Pink Potpourri's first Favorite Things Swap! I greatly enjoyed hosting this, and getting to know all of your favorite things. Everyone put so much time, thought and love into these packages, and so far everyone has seemed to love their swap buddy's favorite things!

Here are some of the packages that were sent/recieved that you all have sent me:

















Well, there you have it. All of our most favorite, special things!!! As this was my first swap to host, I'd love to get some thoughts/feedback on your experience. What did you like/not like? What did you get out of this experience? What would you do differently? What kind of swaps would you like to do in the future?

PS...another swap is coming soon! Keep your eyes open in the months to come...I have a very special holiday one on the way!

I did not receive my package yet but know it is on its way and I am SO excited!!! I feel like a little kid everyday when I come home from work checking to see if it is there!!!

I'll send some pics as soon as I can.

Maybe it will come tomorrow for my birthday - that would be fun!

By far, the BEST swap I've participated in. I really enjoyed shopping for my swap buddy and getting everything ready. It's AMAZING how many similar interests we have. I thoroughly enjoy my swap buddy's blog & have made a new friend. I'm excited that you're going to be doing a holiday swap! Those are ALWAYS fun. Thanks again for putting this together!
