paper packages...

tied up with string...
i finally got my act together and 
mailed out my swap packages the other day.
up above is the gift i wrapped up for the valentine's swap!
and the card that i made for the love and envelopes birthday club.
organized by aisle to aloha and co-hosted by flawed perfection jewelry.
my birthday girl likes to bake so i included a handwritten apple pie muffin recipe.
and lastly my defeat the christmas blues swap!
in it...
a couple of fave pics i took whilst visiting charleston, sc
 and i also included a little handstamped initial charm made by your truly.

and in each little package/envelope mailed out i included my business cards.
and off they went by snail mail!
just to let y'all know...
these were my very first swaps and i was very pleasantly surprised to 
receive my valentine's swap package in the mail today!
i'll be sure to share it in a post sometime next week!

have you participated in any swaps lately?

oh, and there's a few hours left for my valentine/celebrations giveaway!
ends tonight at 11:59 EST!
