2014 Sequin Card Swap

Christmas is a fun time to be a blogger:)  I have really enjoyed participating in several holiday link-ups, including the 2014 Sequin Card Swap hosted by the girls over at the Sequin Notebook.  If you’re not following M &B, you need to be.  Their blog is a little bit of everything, and fun to read!

For this link-up, I was paired with up with Elizabeth form Always a Jersey Girl at Heart.  Elizabeth is an attorney too, but is looking at other career options.  She talks about recipes (like this one for Easy Peasy Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge), books, and life in general.  The card she sent was so adorable–what’s not to love about cute penguins and pom-poms?!  

The girls hosting the link-up sent a card as well.  It looks like they had a lot of fun with their photoshoot for the card.  I really need to step up my Christmas card game next year!!!

I love the DIY Christmas Card Holder I just did.  You can find the details/instructions here.
Also, I wanted to share my Christmas card with all of you.  I have enjoyed getting to know many new friends over the past 9 months, and look forward to meeting many more!  Happy holidays, everyone!!!!  

Nice to meet you!
