2012 New Year Blogging Party

We were excited to join in on the fun gift exchange and link up being held over at The Crowley Party, Casey Leigh and Changing Lanes.

via

Two weeks ago, we were happy to introduce you to our new friend and gift exchange partner, Samantha from Petite Femme Jolie.  We received our packages from Samantha last Friday and we couldn't be happier!!  She definitely did her homework and pegged exactly what each of us love!  Check out the goodies below...

Mendi's gifts:
a handmade card, a Kate Spade notepad, a Starbucks gift card and Madeleines, a trio of adorable DIY coasters that Samantha made & a Yes To Cucumbers Calming Facial Mask

Jayme's gifts:
a handmade card, a Yes To Carrots Daily Cream Facial Cleanser, a trio of DIY coasters that Samantha made, a Kate Spade notepad & a Starbucks gift card and Madeleines

And to see what we sent Samantha, check out her post here.  Then be sure to follow this girl to show her lots of blog love and support!!

This was so much fun!  We look forward to participating in more gift exchange/link up parties in the future.  It's a fantastic way to meet another blogger who you may have never come across otherwise.

Thanks again to the ladies who are hosting this party...be sure to check out the link parties going on today at each of their blogs (links above).  Maybe you'll even find some new blogs to follow!!

Have a great day!  We'll be back tomorrow with another link up party, so stay tuned!

  1. What a FUN thing to do!! YAY :) Great gifts, too!

    Have you ladies used the Yes to Carrots Eye Contour cream?? If so, how did you like it? I think it made me have a crazy bad allergic reaction :( BUT I can use the face wash...weird, right?

    Anywho - yay..snail mail is the best :)
