Thrifter Sisters First Swap!

Happy Sunday, Everyone!
Recently, Hanna, Maddie & I participated in our very first swap.  We joined Erica and lots of our other blog friends for The Golden Egg Vintage Annual Candy Box Swap.  I will admit, Sister and I were a little nervous about making these boxes.  What if they didn't turn out how we hoped and our swap partners didn't like them?  The fearless Miss Maddie wasn't worried at all, though!  She had enough confidence for all of us.
Well needless to say, all three of our boxes turned out amazing if I do say so myself.  I will admit that I had a hard time letting go of the one that I made for Deb from Garage Sale Gal!  I loved it that much but it couldn't have gone to a nicer person.  Plus, now that I know that I can make them, I can always put one together for myself.
We only got a couple of photos from our crafting day last weekend.  Maddie was hard at work while Sister and I were enjoying our Mimosa's.
Lucky Maddie got Erica from Golden Egg Vintage as her swap partner.  She was super excited!
  Here is Hanna helping Maddie hot glue some vintage buttons onto her box. 
She focused really hard on making sure that everything was placed just right.
She knew exactly what she wanted to do and didn't want our help at all!  I will let Erica show you all the finished product.  I am pretty proud of my girl!
As I told you all before, my partner was Deb from Garage Sale Gal.  She created to sweetest box for me with amazing vintage touches.
My favorite part are the little lovebirds.  They are so sweet!
And of course it was chock full of little treats
Lots of crafting goodies
A little card and my first hankie!
More cute cards
Yummy treats!  I am definitely making the Mocha today.  It's really cold outside and it will be the perfect pick me up.
Deb also sent me this cute ornament, some recipe cards, and a pink glittery E for Erica. Pink glitter? The perfect combo!
Next time Miss Maddie and I will show you all of the goodies and the amazing box that Erica sent her.
Until then,
