I had the priviledge of joining Caroline and Alissa in the 2nd annual Valentine Swap and this year was as much fun as last year. This years theme was a mug swap. Each participate was paired with another blogger or instagrammer to swap Valentine goodies. We were encouraged to send along a lovely mug and could also include whatever favorite drink and goodies.
My mug swap partner is the lovely Libbi from Life is Funner. She blogs about her life and does book reviews, so if you are ever in need of a book recommendation, hit up her blog :) She sent me a box full of yummies and goodies and I have a funny story to share about the whole thing too.
Our goal, set by Alissa and Caroline was to get our boxes sent out by Friday, Feb 1 in order for the USPS to do its job and that we would have enough time to blog, instagram and social media the entire event. My box was delayed, but I did receive Libbi's box on the 1st and challenged myself not to open the box until mine was on its way to Colorado. Sadly, the box was not on a very high shelf and was in my studio on my cutting table and the dog decided it smelled too yummy to not drag the box into his crate and rip it to shreds.
As you can see, all the very, yummy, homemade items were completely devoured by the dog. To say I was sad is an understatement. The dog was placed on permanent outside status for the remainder of the day until the husband came home to rescue him.
I managed to save the rest and put them up high and away in the kitchen where they actually belong. Libbi sent me a beautiful green mug (love the dots!!), some yummy dark chocolate and sour patch candy, a package of Cookie Doodle coffee and a variety of teas. There is also a beautifully packaged jar of Russian tea, which I have not had in a very long time.
So despite my sad state of the package and the loss of the homemade goodies, I'm thrilled with my mug swap. Thank you Libbi!!
