a little swap...

i participated in a secret friend summer swap this week. the idea was masterminded by the talented and inspirational nadia. i think that there were about forty of us participating from parts near and far across the globe. the plan was to put together a mix cd, a couple of postcards(one with a favorite quote written on the back), and a little something extra of our own choosing for good measure. she would randomly give names to people and it is all rather anonymous. nadia gave us links to that person's blog and their mailing address and that is it! the rest was up to us and the postal service. the odd thing was that i put together from my giftee's blog that we had a mutual friend. in fact, someone who is very dear to my heart (of years past when i lived in the south). so what a lovely small yet absolutely freaking crazy ass large world we live in...so very random. i hope that my person likes her things. one card i made and the other is from a trip to paris several years back. i made the earrings which are vintage beads and sterling findings...the music is...well, one never knows how one's musical taste will be received. cheers!!!
