I'll take this over junk mail and bills anyday!

It's too often that I check the mailbox to find useless coupons, bills, junk mail, and the occasional magazine!
Last week was great - and I may be spoiled! I received so many fun things, I never want to go back to the old days of oil change coupons and power bills!

First, I received my beautiful bracelet from the beautiful Shanni over at Shanni Loves! This was part of the jewelry swap over at The Life of a Not So Ordinary Wife. Melissa is a rock-star - and this swap was super successful! If you'd like to partake in the jewelry swap, head over to her blog, new guests are welcome for next month's swap!

Now typically, this isn't something that I would buy - and I usually wear my watch, and haven't really gotten on the "arm party" train yet of layering bracelets and such....but I fell in love with this little piece!

I love how the white beads are iridescent and almost take on whatever color you pair it with!  

Next, after a pretty rough day, I had a surprise package on my doorstep! I had almost forgotten I took part in a mug swap! I was paired up with the ever so bad-ass Destiny over at Rockin' Mama. Not only is this girl not afraid to say what's on her mind (and what all of us are thinking....UNCENSORED!) she is thoughtful too! She turned my blog header and favorite quote into this adorable mug! I can only hope that she likes her mug as much as I love mine!

Last but certainly not least - was a package that I got in the mail today.
I cannot WAIT to try out this little box. Craftistas was sending out products to review - and I have to say, I'm hooked! Monthly subscription services have swept the nation with boxes like Birchbox and Bluum but  this one is strictly for the DIY-ers or ones that aspire to find their crafty niche. Each month, they send you a box with most of the goodies you need to embark on your very own DIY journey! 
This month, I received some great fabric and studs to make an envelope clutch!
I can't wait to set some time aside and show you all the finished product!
Head over to their site to get signed up for your very own!
