I know you’re sitting there thinking to yourself, “Louise, it’s Thursday. What are you doing here?” Well today just so happens to be the Fall Swag Swap link up and I need to gush about the incredible goodies my partner Faith sent me!

This is Faith:


She blogs over at Life with Mrs. G and the Artist. I can’t even begin to list all the similarities between Faith and myself. She also has some pretty spectacular unique qualities, too! I’m most impressed by her ability to bargain-shop! My fall swap box was filled to the brim with so many awesome finds! She paid close attention to my love of scrapbooking as well as my obsession with history and historical fiction. Enough chit-chat, on to the goodies!


Faith knows sign language which has me so impressed and inspired. I don’t think I’ve ever said it on here, but I want to learn the language so badly! She’s also starting down the long, rewarding, magical path of Harry Potter! It’s a little odd how excited I am for her to fight the Death Eaters with Harry and solve problems with Hermione and discover true friendship with Ron. And who can forget Neville’s bravery? Brb, now I need to go re-read the series…

ANYWAY, Faith loves movies and we bonded over historical fiction. She also has a dog!! I love dog people! It was really a great experience getting to know Faith better. I think my husband knows her a little better, too, because with every email he’d hear me say, “Guess what! She likes this and this and this, too! And she does this!”


In her box Faith included two movies (neither of which I’ve seen!), a cute little mug with a sweater (how cool is that?), wasabi tape and paper for scrapbooking and card making (YAY YAY YAY!) and a beautiful journal. I’ve never seen a journal with binding like the one Faith sent along. I’m so excited to start writing! THANK YOU, Faith!

I’m so grateful for this Fall Swag Swap and being matched with Faith!

  1. I am so glad I paired you and faith, even though you already knew each other a little! You both put so much thought into your gifts! Thank you so much for participating, and I’m thrilled it was a good experience!


    1. Thank YOU for hosting, Lindsay! I will definitely participate again if you host again πŸ™‚ It looked like you got a pretty spectacular haul as well!


  2. It’s always so much fun to get to know other bloggers through swaps! I still am in touch with almost all of the ladies I’ve done swaps with. Also I loved your whole paragraph about her getting to do all those things with the HP characters… I think I need to start where I left off on my re-read this year. Fall for some reason screams Harry Potter to me!


    1. I loved getting to know Faith πŸ™‚ This was my first swap experience and it was a great one! I don’t know what your television situation is like, but ABC Family is having a Harry Potter marathon this weekend. I like to think it’s in honor of my birthday πŸ˜‰
