{Christmas in July Gift Exchange!}

20140720-133417-48857864.jpg

I recently participated in a fun Christmas in July gift exchange with Courtney and Jenny! I was matched up with Julie and sent her this box of goodies. Check out her blog for a recap!

IMG_6042Courtney, who co-hosted the exchange, received my name and sent us a wonderful box of goodies! We just got back from our beach trip and Harper and Will were so excited to receive a package:)

Eagerly opening the box…

Not only glow sticks but glow stick sunglasses! How cool! Will got his own orange glow stick (his fave color) and Harper received a purple one (her fave color). They were amazed that they both got their favorite colors! Will even said, “How did they know orange was my favorite color?!”

Lisa Frank stickers-who remembers those from their childhood? Maybe I’m just getting old, ha! And even a wonderful book for me! The Artful Parent: Simple Ways to Fill Your Family’s Life with Art and CreativityIMG_8210

Will and Harper immediately opened the glitter pipe cleaners and started creating an art project with them.

Glow sticks were next…even though it wasn’t dark out, they hid under the covers and played with them.

Loving the stickers!

We received a cute homemade card from Aria wishing us a happy summer. Thanks so much, Aria and Courtney! We love our gifts:) It was lots of fun to get these goodies in the middle of summer!

  1. thanks for joining us! That box of goodies is great! Courtney and Aria are so good at being creative! I love those glow sticks and sunglasses. Although glitter pipe cleaners are pretty cool too!!

  2. Reading your blog I saw how creative you guys all are and I wanted to send something fun to keep all the fun art projects going! I’m glad you all enjoyed it! You should let me know how you like the book, I didn’t want to ‘break the seal’ so I only peaked by opening the book like an inch, ha. Happy Christmas in July!
