I recently discovered a new-to-me blog called “oh, hello friend” and have quickly learned to look forward to pretty photos, graphic design, free downloads, along with a perspective in life that I share. I’m hooked. So a couple of months ago when Danni posted her shop swap, my antenna went up. Wait a minute, I have a shop! Swap! Swap!
Danni paired us swappers according to interest/what we sell in our shops, and I was excited to see meet my partner. Introducing The Ravenna Girls! Brianne and Danielle are friends who live in Seattle, sharing a blog and two etsy shops – one for handmade, one for vintage (how adorable is that!).
I promptly lost an embarrassing amount of time reading through their blog archives, feeling sorta creepy because I was relating so much to them. The sad thing about it all is that I can’t just invite them over for dinner.
Check out the loot they sent my way for the swap:
They make these awesome rope bracelets which I’ve seen popping up other places around the internet (here, for instance). I was secretly hoping for one. Thanks, guys!
So what does all of this have to do with the photos below? Click here to see!
For me, the best part of this whole experience is that I came away with new friends. Awww! I’m always excited to meet people who share my faith & other interests, and I didn’t even see it coming this time. Ha! Brianne & Danielle, thanks for being such fun partners! I am so thankful to have met you both. Definitely a successful swap on lots of levels.
