New Years Blog Party Reveal

I had the pleasure of participating in another Blogger Swap which was hosted by The Crowley Party, Casey Leigh and Changing Lanes.   I was paired up with Ashley of the The Big White Farmhouse

After an email exchange of "getting to know you" questions, I immediately went over to blog-stalk her and was extremely impressed.  She has a beautiful blog. It is apparent that Ashley is not only an amazing mother and wife, she is an amazing person. She has a generous heart and encourages her reader’s to make a difference in their own lives and communities.

Since I'm just like a little kid when it comes to receiving presents, I immediately opened my package and failed to take pictures of the UNOPENED gift! 

I'm excited to share what I received:


As you can see from her handwritten note, she is so sweet and thoughtful. The Ticket Stub Diary is absolutely perfect for me.  I go to the movies at least once a week, so it will be nice to have a diary to jot down notes to help with my movie reviews and to remember all of the highlights of my evening.  The bowling themed tissue cozy is just too cute, and I love that she is supporting small-business by purchasing it on etsy! 

Thanks again to Ashley for the great gifts!  She totally nailed it!

Now scoot on over and visit Ashley to see what I sent her, and while you are there look around, because I am sure you will want to follow along as her family and blog grow!

I LOVE going to the movies too! I've been collecting my movie tickets for the past few years, and I love looking through them and remembering who I went with, what movie we saw and whatever was going on in my life at the time. I don't collect anything, and not sure why I started with movie tickets, but I love it! The ticket stub diary is such a great idea!
