I Made it For You {handmade craft swap}

The Life of an “Ordinary” Housewife

Guess what, I participated in ANOTHER swap! This swap was just as good as all my others. I was paired with the ever so sweet Cheryl, who blogs at Spotted Around the School. She's probably the sweetest, most kind-hearted person I have ever met in my life!

Danielle from The Life of an "Ordinary" Wife and Libby from It's Never Too Late... Although I'm Always Late! partnered up to bring us the handmade craft swap. So I decided to make a few things for Cheryl.

But, I forgot to take pictures, so if you want to see them, head to her blog!
But what I made... yeah. It didn't outshine what SHE made for ME. OH. MY. GOSH. I am in love with what she made for me! I told her my favorite things were Fall and the ocean/beach. So, what did she do? Made something in both categories!

First, she made this adorable fall hanging decoration that I could use during the Halloween season. It says, "FAITH - FAMILY - FRIENDS" and has a little crow at the top. Did I mention, she wrote on and painted AND decorated each of the things ON HER OWN? Uh, creativity!!

But that's not it.. she also sent me a jar filled with sand from Isle of Palms in South Carolina. Inside that jar was a baggie of shells. Now, if you know me, no matter what beach I go to, I HAVE to find shells. I'm obsessed with shells. So anyways, not only did she include sand and shells, she painted on the sides of the glass, "SAND... SUN... FUN!" How cute is she?!

Cheryl, thank you SO much. You were a perfect swap partner and are so kind, caring, and sweet! I absolutely love what you made for me and cannot wait to move to put them up! I think the hanging decoration is going to go on our front door while the jar will go in my bathroom as decoration :) I cannot wait! 

Again, if you have the chance to participate in a swap, DO IT. You will not regret it one bit!

Have a great day, y'all!
