Favorite Things Swap- The Exchange!



Thanks to all who participated in my first ever Favorite Things Swap!

I had 74 participants.

I was blown away with your response.

I hope that everyone had a wonderful time gathering a few of your favorite things.

I know I did.

Please remember that your packages need to be in the mail by

Monday, Sept. 22, 2008.

As promised, I have finally posted Mr. Linky.

Simply put your name on the first line and your exact post address from your blog on the second line.

Yes, that means you need to write a post, with photos, so we can all share in the fun.

Then link up here.

If you have any questions...please email me at becausewendisaidso(at) gmail(dot) com.

Thanks again for a fabulous swap!

Hi Wendi,

Thanks for hosting this great swap. Not only did I get new favorite things, I made a new friend.

I love seeing everyone's stuff.

My partner & I are running fashionably late for the party but we'll post when we can.

Thanks Wendi!

I'll post mine when I get it!

O.K. I know that I am almost computer illiterate... but what is Mister Linky? I put in my name and address but what does that mean? How do you use it?

Is there a blog book for dummies??? I need to get a copy.

I have been enjoying your blog.

Kelli @ writing the waves said...

Hey Wendi - I gave my blog a makeover :) and I changed my blog address so I added a new link to my favorite things post so you guys would be able to find me. Sorry for any confusion! :)

Rebecca said...

This swap was so much fun!

Thank you, Wendi for being a wonderful hostess of the swap and for pairing me up with the perfect swap partner!

Thank you, thank you, thank you to my swap partner, Danielle!

My husband brought in the box from the mail, and I think he was secretly excited to see what was in it. Even my dog was standing next to me, waiting eagerly to see what was in the box (as eagerly as an Old English Sheepdog can be...).

I was so excited, and as I was opening the box I told my husband, "It's like I just got a box of happiness in the mail!"

Thank you, Danielle, for sending me YOUR favorite things, which just so happened to be MY favorite things, too. :)

Thanks Wendi for including me in this swap. What a great idea - and lots of fun even thinking about what to send, not just receive!

You are definitely the hostess with the mostess! :)

Tulsi said...

This is a fun idea. A first for me and a learning experience. More to come.....

Tulsi said...

I am resending. I'm not going to tell Terri because she said not to, but it isn't fun to receive an empty package. I remember what I had in there. I'm smarter now!! This really was a fun idea.

Dawn said...

This was really fun and I LOVED what I got back! Tulsi, that's so nice of you to re-send to Terri (she's my BFF!); she really puts a lot of heart into her swap packages. Hope to do this again sometime!

Lynette said...
