I am new to the world of online swaps, but I am truly fascinated and intrigued by them. So, I decided to sign up to participate in one. What is an online swap? It is where you are assigned a partner and you purchase awesome goodies for them based on a certain theme. You are given a little description of your partner and you have to use that info to pick out their happies. In a world full of negativity, I love the idea and concept.
The Brewtiful Exchange is my first official online swap to participate in. I found out about the swap through Instagram. Have I mentioned Instagram is my favorite social media outlet? I do not have nearly as many friends or followers as my other social media sites, but I am a picture-type of gal, so I love it.
Hannah from Hello Grace hosted this special swap. And, let me mention that this pretty lady did it all while at the end of her pregnancy. She actually gave birth right after assigning partners. Just from that little bit of info, I know she is an amazing woman.

|Share a little about yourself here:||
I’m a mom, wife, teacher, blogger and avid reader. I enjoy all things fall-the weather, the scents, the food, the clothes, football, and so much more! I enjoy painting in my downtime and gardening. I love spending time with my family and close friends 🙂
|What do you absolutely love about Fall? Include your favorite scents, activities, styles, etc.||
Pumpkin anything 🙂 hazelnut, warm apple
Pie, football games, cooking soup,
Gumbo, chili, coffee favored anything 🙂
Let me mention that I think Hannah did an amazing job pairing me up with someone. I think Amanda and I have a lot in common.
So, my next order of business was to start shopping for this special mommy. And, here is the care package that is on the way to Amanda. I can keeping my fingers crossed that it all gets there in one piece. I always get nervous when mailing breakables.
- Pumpkin Spice Fall in Love ground coffee @ TJ Maxx
- Set of paint brushes @ Wal-Mart
- Small paint tray @ Wal-Mart
- Cents of Style tan infinity scarf
- Notepad @ Wal-Mart
- Hazelnut Coffee-mate creamer @ Wal-Mart
- Mug rug by Craft Nurse Quilt – I loved it so much, I ordered myself one too.
- Old Pottery Company mug with lid @ TJ Maxx
And, you might be wondering what my partner sent me… Here is a little peak!!! I loved it all.
Overall, I loved this experience. I definitely plan on participating in more swaps. I loved shopping for Amanda and hope she loves her goodies too!
