Favorite Things Swaparoo from Tami's Eclectic Corner

I participated in a swap through Tami's Eclectic Corner this month and really enjoyed learning about my swap partner, Marlene, through many emails. We were to pick out gifts for each other based on what we learned these past weeks.

To say I was excited when my packaged arrived is an understatement. The gifts I received from Marlene were truly thoughtful, functional, and really cute.

This cute card greeted me when I opened the package...

Such a sentimental note...

I love how she customized  this box with my name on it...

Most of the gifts were individually wrapped in this beautiful textured paper... 


She left cute notes like these on many of the items...

Love this ribbon...

This bookmark was handmade...

The other side of the bookmark...

She made me a CD! 

I seriously couldn't have picked a better song list!

Love this candle...

 She sent me a bunch of gifts:
  • black and white ribbon
  • black and white fabric
  • beads
  • feather pendants
  • another jewelry pendant
  • a storage box with my name on it
  • a customized CD with some of my favorite songs
  • a customized bookmark with beading and my name on it
  • a candle
  • a picture frame
Marlene did a great job picking out things that I loved! I don't even think I told her that my favorite color was black and white. (I think she got that from the blog). I sent her gifts today. I hope she loves them!!
