Valentine's Day Swap Box!

Last month, my friends over at The Darling Prepster, The Rachael Way, and Life, Chaos and Quotes set up a Valentine's Day swap-box program. Everyone got randomly paired up to exchange boxes, and the idea is that you must get to know the person well enough to create an amazing box for her. I was lucky enough to meet Mollie of Maquillaje by Mollie, and we had a great time emailing back and forth. She's totally someone I'd be friends with in real life, and we're even friends on Facebook now!

Mollie decided to base my box around my 101 in 1001 list, which was super creative on her part--and a total surprise to me. Each gift was wrapped in Valentine's Day tissue paper, but that got torn off (oops). She even filled the box with raffia--it was so pretty (and I can use it for future gifts)! Here's what she sent:

The gifts!

There's a caddy to help organize my nail-polish collection, knitting needles so I can make a scarf, goggles so I can swim laps, paintbrushes so I can paint a cooler, an elementary Arabic book to help me with my Arabic, a Dead Sea mask to give myself a facial (I LOVE Dead Sea products, by the way), and--my favorite--targets for shooting practice!

Her gifts were so thoughtful, and I can't wait to use them. It was a wonderful Valentine's Day gift, and totally made my day. In fact, we had so much fun putting together each others' boxes that we're going to do a swap with each other each season!

I've already put the nail-polish caddy to good use--it now houses all of my nail tools!

Happy Valentine's Day to all of my beautiful readers!
