Cold Hands, Warm Heart swap

I recently participated in the Cold Hands, Warm Heart swap hosted by bloggers much love, illy and Sandy A La Mode. The idea behind the swap was to connect bloggers to each other in a fun way. The packages were to contain something that would warm the hands, and whatever else you wanted to throw in.

My partner was the lovely Danielle of Positively Positive!!. It was a ton of fun reading her blog—which, to be honest, I'd never read before—and getting to know a new blogger friend. Danielle is totally fun, and I hope to continue to "keep in touch" long after this swap's finished up!

Here's a group shot of the great things Danielle sent:

A sweet Christmas mouse, a pretty hand-crocheted cowl, a pair of totally rad gloves, an awesome DVD triple feature—Spaceballs, The Adventures of Buckaroo Bonzai and Killer Clowns for Outer Space—and a great handmade card.

Here's a close-up of the gloves:


I love the fair-isle look and the added bling of the sequins.

Thank you again, Danielle! And thank you Illy and Sandy for putting us together.
