mug swap 2013 ♥

i talk a lot about instagram.
it's really cause i love it so much
the handmade community on there is really awesome
a couple weeks ago, i found Kim
you can read her blog here ... she's the inventor of the mug swap.
where she pairs you up with someone to exchange mugs, but it's a surprise
it was so fun to see everyone sending and receiving packages the past few weeks
if you're on instagram just look up the #mugswap2013 hashtag
and you'll see all the fun pictures

the person i sent to was Katy ... you can read about her here.
she's awsome. and she has this really cool etsy shop here.

this 2nd set of goodies was for Kim herself. the president. the one who's in charge...
and who probably spent hours & hours setting this whole thing up for us.
so she needed a box too :)

the little camera garland is something i sell in my etsy shop
it's a great gift idea for a friend who's on instagram, or who loves photography

the person i received from was Jessica
her box was such a shock to open.
it had gifts and more gifts all wrapped up in paper and she sent me not one mug
but a whole tower of mugs! wow. generous heart this girls got. 

mark your calendars or phones, or whatever.
just be sure to sign up for this next year.
trust me, you won't regret it!!

  3. Wow,it must have been awesome to participate in such a swap! Plus the mug you chose for kim was sooooo cute! My mum has a pretty big collection of those and we're always looking for precious antiquities and basically polka dot and flower prints I think it's becoming an obsession!! :)

  4. Jaime. You are too much. :) Seriously. Rockstar status. I'm totally floored by all the goodies you sent me. This morning my coffee tasted extra delicious in that prettiest of pretty mugs, and I have the cute #mugswap2013 bunting hanging from my bedroom shutters. :) I just love it all. You are so thoughtful, and so talented.

    Thank you for being a sponsor, a swapper, and now a new friend. :)
