warm hands = warm heart


first and foremost, i would like to thank ilene and sandy for creating this wonderful swap, and for giving us all an opportunity to meet fellow bloggers and gain new friends too!

i was lucky enough to be partnered with a wonderful and creative lady, emily smolak of "sassy smolak".


i'm so happy to meet her because she is so lovely!  as i was reading her blog, i came across her wedding photos.  i was so inspired by her favorite colors (also her wedding colors).  so, i visited a few stores, but still couldn't find the perfect gloves for her...  finally, i decided to visit one of my favorite online stores, etsy, and i came across love driven's shop!  the moment i saw the smittens, i knew i found the perfect pair.  heather (of love driven), customized a pair with two of emily's favorite colors, purple and orange!


these are the goodies that emily sent me:


i received tuquoise gloves by mossimo, cards by the craft pantry, and a beautiful wood garland!  thank you so much emily!!!  i absolutely love all of them!

hope your week is as wonderful as mine (or even better)!
xo, carla

I am so glad that you liked all the lovely things that I sent you. I still feel bad it took almost 2 weeks to get there :(...but at least it made it :).

I can't wait to photograph the sweet smitten and share on the blog.

Thank you all for saying such sweet things about me as well. I love you all dearly, and am so glad I got paired with you Carla!!
