swap shop & snail mail love

who doesn't love snail mail?

I do know one person who does love getting snail mail (and email).

this girl here.

so when Krysten of After I Do announced a swap I secretly fistpumped. (Or maybe I did it in real life.)

And when this showed up on my doorstep from my swap partner Meghan of The Perfect Compilation Tape, I got a little bit excited.

She wrote me a sweet card I wanted to lick

 and inside the package was handmade goodness from Renegrade Crafts--- a little indie boutique in Chicago. (a place that I have now resolved to visit.)

The cute little doggie is a mirror. My doggie liked it too

She sent me chocolate too... but I didn't document it cuz the husband and I already ate a lot of it. :)

Thanks Meghan! 
And thank you Krysten for dreaming this up!


  1. I'm so glad you liked it! I just received your package yesterday, and I am IN LOVE! Thank you so much! I am wearing the beautiful headband to school today and the little owl is already out on display. I'm a little behind on blogging, but I will most definitely feature your amazing gifts soon!

    Thanks again, Erika! You are too thoughtful!

  2. What a fun idea! Who doesn't love getting something other than bills in their mailbox? I love getting fun things!

    Also, you have a Corgi! I have two of them! Aren't they just the cutest pups ever?!
