Cara box: December.

If you haven't heard of it by now, you must go see what all the hype about the Cara Box Exchange is. This was my third month doing the exchange, and it was a bit different this month. There's been such a great turn out that, in order to prevent re-matching, bloggers send to a different person than they receive a box from. But just like October and November, I was so blessed with a sweet partner :)

Brenda is such a sweet girl, and she put so much thought into my box! Most of the things she made herself {three necklaces, a magnet, a hair clip, and a thankful jar} and made them so personal! So talented!!!! She also added in some chocolates and office supplies...I'm a sucker for both :) 

I sent a box to a really sweet lady named Emily who doesn't have a blog/email/ it was a bit tricky getting to know her and making her box personal and special. But I think I made it work! Since she doesn't have internet or email, I went ahead and took a picture of her loot before I sent it :)

As a stay at home mom, I figured she could use some things to pamper herself! A warm candle, bath salts, face mask, and a deliciously scent bar of soap are all perfect for little moments of pampering. I added some sparkly nailpolish and hair ties, along with a cute journal {she's writing a book} and some adorable fabric {she loves to sew} and a yummy dark chocolate bar! If you're reading this Emily...I hope you loved your box!

So what do you think? Have you joined the Cara Box Exchange?
