Handmade Swap

I wanted to share what I put together for the last swap I participated in, which was organized by the super talented and sweet Mirta. I know my partner already received her package so I won't be spoiling the surprise.

I made a little notebook with her initial on it (drawn with Sharpies and Microns, if anyone's curious) and included the confetti card I made a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to include a little something from my hometown too, so I bought some locally-made lavender soap. I've never tried this brand, but I love the packaging and it smells great.

I packaged everything up in lavender tissue paper because I was inspired by the soap, and it just felt like spring to me.

My package is on its way too, and I can't wait to get it! I'll blog photos when it arrives. This was a lot of fun, and it might be the last swap I do for a little while as life has become busy again.

Have you done any handmade swaps lately?


  1. What a brilliant idea! Would love to take part in a handmade swap some time too!

  2. Your notebooks are the cutest. And yes, I'm doing a swap! The card exchange! ;-)

  3. Oh, that looks wonderful! I love everything about it. I wish I could get my hands on some (affordable) tissue paper over here. It makes the whole package look even more festive.

  4. Beautiful! The card is fab. I love the washi tape, really makes the packaging special!

  5. Grrr... I always have such a hard time commenting on my phone!
    Here we go again:

    This little package is delightful, and I love that you included soap! You're not only entertaining Sight & Touch, but also Smell!
    Also, the lavender wrapping is the perfect spring color. Lovely!
    Can't wait to see what you get ^_^

  6. I love that notebook. You're so talented Mary. xo
