Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Pinterest Gift Swap

Pinterest Gift Swap

Back in July, Marine Parents Blog announced they would host a Pinterest gift swap where we were paired up with another person, exchange e-mails, and send a package of homemade goodies.  I was paired with Stacy; I sent her bunting and a small clutch filled with a tin of Altoids and a small bottle of Dr. Bonner's castile soap.

When I received my package, I loved how it was wrapped up.  I also noticed Stacy not only sent something for me, but for my daughter as well.  Charis received a hair clip and LOVES it.  Every single time, she gets the clip out of her bag, she immediately finds me, and says, "Hair."

I received an infinity necklace made out of t-shirt yarn.  I have worn it a 5-10 times, more so the last month now that it's cooler.  I'm wearing it in the photo below.  Note: It's VERY hard to get Charis to look at the camera, stay still, and smile.

Have you ever participated in a craft swap?
If so, how did you like it?
