Remember a couple of weeks ago when I joined up with Mamarazzi for the Pinktastic Blog Swap? No? Well just go here and refresh your memory. I'll wait. Okay...well I have to tell you all about it now....
First, if I were to grade myself on it...I think an A for effort, but a D for following directions. You will see why shortly here. My overall grade is a C. See it is called PINKTASTIC. Pink. Well some of the stuff I bought was pink. A key chain that was a foot with "California" on it. It was pink. Post its with pink flowers, warm fuzzy socks that are pink and white stripped. I wrapped it all in Valentinesy(yeah, it's a word) paper. I got her a pair of latex gloves as a joke. I didn't think until after the fact, I should have picked pink! Sheesh! I need a do over please!
The apron is black yes, but I fell in love it: "Today's menu: take it or leave it!"
Okay, my partner: Mary over at My Family...My World totally shined! She gets and A+ for effort and A+ for following directions! She made sure it was pink all right! And woweee...she spoiled me.
Can you tell, she gave me a cool cup too? Where did she find a pink one?? How cool is that? I only saw the clear one. Lots of pink. Lots of goodies: pink gum--already gone! the pink cup with crystal light single serving packets inside....strawberry energy flavors, funky shoe laces since my shoes are granny-ish! Cute earbuds. Yay...block out the kids noise! This is a funny...$5 gift card to Wally for my Diet Coke habit! hahaha. Victoria's Secret perfume, lotion and hand sanitizer. It doesn't get any pinker than that!! A row of sees candies white chocolate strawberry truffles. Yeah those are gone too. And look at those cute socks. My daughter so wants them. She wants the cup too. No way kid. haha.
Are you still with me?? Good. We are almost done...I have been asked to answer a few questions by none other than Mamarazzi herself!
1. What, if anything, would you do differently if you were to participate in future swaps hosted by Dandelion Wishes?
Pay stricter attention to the details! I mean duh....PINKTASTIC! haha.
2. What could I have done to make the swap better?
I think you did a fabulous job! I really don't know what you could do to improve it.
3. Were you pleased with the package you received?
Heck ya! I want a to do mine for hers over! hahaha. No really.
4. Do you have any ideas for a future swap theme?
How about....a season swap( spring, summer, fall, winter)? Crafty stuff...though I am not a crafty person...wish I was....cooking/baking swap. It is sooo much easier to cook and bake if you have the proper tools.
And that is the PINKTASTIC swap from start to finish! I had a lot of fun shopping for my partner. I wish I could have gotten to know her better than I did, but she is up to her neck in work right now! It is tax season and that is her job! I bow to you Miss Mary! I know I couldn't do it. And I don't! Thanks again Mamarazzi for letting this newbie in the swap. And special thanks to my swap partner!
Have you ever done a swap?
