Not In Jersey: Cara Box Fall Swap Cara Box Fall Swap - Not In Jersey

Cara Box Fall Swap

Monday, November 18, 2013

I recently participated in the Cara Box exchange via Wifessionals. This time around, pairs were made according to age and life stage, so therefore both of my partners were in their 30s with kids. I sent to Christa at Mom, Paper, Scissors. She is a crafty mom of 2 and you can see what I sent her right here! I received my package from Desiree at Macke Monologues. Crazily enough, Desiree used to live in the Kansas City area and she is constantly commenting on my blog about all the things she has on her to do list for the next time she visits! Desiree sent me an awesome box with things inside for me as well as for the kids!

When I opened the box, I saw how the items were wrapped in tissue paper, and Desiree had written quotes about autumn on the box flaps!

Inside the packages I found:

Blank notecards

A Starbucks gift card! (I also sent one to my partner, great minds think alike!)

For the kids – placemats for Thanksgiving and stickers!

Décor items which I added to my fall entry way

Some “bling” in honor of my birthday

A really fun game, which we all really enjoy playing. The kids have shared it with a few friends and they ask us to play it whenever we see them now!

Cute tissues and yummy Chap Stick

Yummy smelling candle – also on my entry table!

Lovely nail polish in a shade I did not have.

These didn’t last very long!

I had to decide if I should add these to Simon’s potty jar or eat them myself. Hmm…

Group Shot!

Thank you again Desiree! I’m so glad I got to meet and become blog friends with both of my partners and I look forward to the next Cara Box round!
