Seriously Impulsive Swap

We interrupt our regularly scheduled "Tipsy Tuesday" post to bring you the results of the Seriously Impulsive Swap! When Impulsive and Shawn announced their swap, I jumped up and down--I mean, who wouldn't want to participate in a swap that these cool chicks were hosting?

When they sent me the name of my swap partner, I was really jumping up and down! Janette is one of my newest bloggy buddies and she sent me the beautiful scarf that I told you about here. I had a great time emailing back and forth with her and getting to know what she likes and doesn't like, and trading past swap stories.

I was so excited to get home this past Friday to find a HUGE box waiting for me! Clearly, this girl knows me--I love jewelry, scarves, and anything that helps with organization. She sent me 2 beautiful bracelets, a sheer animal print scarf that is going to be perfect for summer, and a hanging jewelry organizer. I lay my clothes and jewelry out the night before because I get ready in the mornings in our spare room, so I don't wake the Rev. My jewelry has just been in a dish back there, so I am super excited to put this organizer to use.

She could have stopped there and I would have been happy...but taking something that I told her in one of our last email conversations, she sent me this amazing glass sculpture, in a gorgeous shade of red. Doesn't it look great in our living room with some of my other red glass pieces?

Want to see what I sent to Janette? Visit her here. Want some more swap talk, head over to see Impulsive and Shawn and all of the other swap participants on Talk to us Tuesday!

That glass sculpture is too cool for words! I have to say, this is the BEST swap I've ever participated in, and it's all because our fearless leaders made it that way - and our amazingly awesome partners. :)

Love & Hugs to you girl!! So thankful to have been paired up with you! You are my best swap yet!! :) xoxo

Shawn said...

Great stuff Stacie but what I really need to kow is how she managed to package that gorgeous glass piece so it arrived in one piece. That right there is talent!

I'm so glad you decided to swap with us and that you loved who we choose for your partner! You're such a doll we knew anyone we matched you with would be thrilled!

Where's TIPSY TUESDAY? DANG YOU messing with my routine!!!

I'm kidding. I for sure thought you'd throw it in with today's post.

Ok, she sent me a pic of that red glass piece. I LOVED it. And I have to say, it looks GREAT on your mantle. It's funky and hip and I kinda wish I had one. I accent in red too. I was super worried about it getting broken. I'm so glad it didn't.

She totally spoiled you AND went over the budget. I'll get her for that.

Thanks for participating Miss Stacie. You know I love you like a whore loves dark alley's. xoxox

It is SO much fun getting to know your swap partner!! Some of the best bloggy relationships come from swaps...matches made in heaven! :)

I love what she sent you! I'm all about scarves! And I'm a little envious of that jewelry organizer! I desperately need something to organize my jewelry in/with.

Hope you're having a great week!
