A little over a month ago Kenzie at Chasing Happy announced a Merry Mail Ornament Exchange with fellow bloggers. I love any chance I can get to meet new bloggers and connect. I was matched up with Jess over at Stamp in my Passport and we have had the chance to get to know each other.
What we have in common:
– We both love Paris (She actually studied abroad in Europe…I’m so jealous)
– We love little doggies (She has a dachshund and I have a shih tzu)
– She lives in Georgia (my brother lives in Georgia)
– We both would travel 24/7 if given the chance!
I got Jess’ package in the mail the mail and was so excited to see what she had made!
I love that she included a Christmas card explaining what she had made and mentioned things she had read from my blog. It was nice to know that someone was actually reading what I write.
I’m also slightly obsessed with the tissue paper- Jess where did you buy this?!
Inside the tissue paper were homemade cinnamon ornaments cut into tiny shapes with a dainty green string to hang them from my Christmas tree. Unfortunately, the mailman was not a gentle giant and all of the ornaments were smashed into pieces. My heart sank when I realized they were broken but the smell coming from the package was heavenly so I knew I had to salvage this somehow. I placed the pieces in an old Christmas candle votive that I hadn’t been able to find a use for and placed it on my bedside table. My room smelled of cinnamon for at least three days and the card is on display.
Jess- Thank you for your sweet Christmas package. It has been great getting to know you and I can’t wait to keep in touch 🙂
