meet.make.mail exchange.

When Claire from clairebellemakes contacted us about doing a mail exchange, we were super excited. Having never done a mail exchange before, we thought it would be really fun! 

Claire lives in Cambridge, which is literally on the other side of the world from us here on Vancouver Island. How excited were we to receive a parcel with a stamp saying "Royal Mail"? Haha we don't get that around here very often! 

Though we were looking forward to receiving a parcel, it was also really fun to put together a package for Claire. Our goal was to put together a bit of Canadiana to send. To see what we ended up mailing, check out her post here!

To start, how perfect is this card? Even us Canadian girls had a crush on Prince William.

Our parcel contained an AWESOME DIY book called "Girls' Night In". How fitting is that for our blog? We are so excited to try some of the awesome projects in this book. For Claire's review of the book, check out her post here

We also got some delicious chocolate, and some beautiful handmade rings from Claire's shop.

We may have a bit of a struggle to decide who will get each one! Aren't they all awesome? We'll likely share them all!

We have had so much fun doing this! Thanks so much Claire for suggesting the exchange and for the awesome parcel. 

All you meet.make.laugh. readers out there - make sure you stop by Claire's blog and say hello!
