Swap Reveal, Sweet Progress

It’s finally here, the Fall Box Swap Reveal!! #SPBoxSwap


Fall Swap Box I’M BAAAACK!! It’s been way too long since I created a post. Too long. If you’ve tried to visit me over the last few weeks you may have noticed things weren’t working right. There were over 1,000 404 pages and no SSL certificate. It’s all been fixed now. 🙂 Anyway, because BlueHost took forever to figure out the issue- despite me giving them a deadline and telling what I thought the problem was, which it was– I’m behind on posting my #SPBoxSwap Reveal!!! I feel horrible that I’m one of the hosts of the swap and here I am posting this FIVE days late.

Fall Box Swap? #SPBoxSwap?

If you’re new here, I make up half of the happy mail loving team Sweet Progress Box Swap. My friend Ashley from Happy Pretty Sweet makes up the sweet pretty half of our box swap team. We both love happy mail and seeing bloggers connect and lift each other, so it kinda just made sense for the two of us to collab to create a bloggers only box swap. 🙂

When you sign up for a swap we ask that you are 100% sure you are able to be a good partner and send your partner a box. We understand that life happens and for that reason we always have a swap angel on stand by. This time I was an angel! See, mom, I’m an angel. 😉 I was partnered with my IRL gal pal Lowanda!!! Okay, so, we’re not hanging out at Starbucks or anything, but we have met in real life and I have known her for years. 🙂 Psst.. You can read a little more about Lowanda and I here.

I’m sure by this point you’re like, “C’mon woman show us the Fall Box Swap goods!” Okay, okay, here comes the goods.


Fall #SPBoxSwap Reveal Time

I love that Lowanda decided to mix a little Halloween and Dia De Los Muertos for my Fall #SPBoxSwap Box. Not sure what Dia De Los Muertos is, you can read about it here and here. 🙂  I have a serious love affair for sugar skulls. My office is filled with sugar skulls, and recently I was commissioned by LA Mamacitas to create sugar skull art and a flier for their event. 🙂

Fall Box Swap Reveal Sugar Skull Card

I’m sure you can imagine when I saw this card and the sugar skulls peeking out behind all the goodies I was excited! Fall box swap.

This bag is going with me everywhere!!

Look, it made the perfect background for my photo props Lowanda sent. Sadly, I forgot to use them on HALLOWEEN!! But that’s okay, I will be ready next year. 🙂

(My teen and I picked up the hand to “hand out” candy, we only had two trick-or-treaters.  My tween didn’t want nothing to do with the monster hand, she handed out the candy. Guess we’ll have to save that for next year too.)

Aren’t these pencils the cutest?!?! I’m not sure if I’ll use ’em because they are too stinkin’ cute. I think I’ll save them for Halloween decoration for my office.

Fall Box Swap Reveal Halloween Pencils

Who doesn’t love a bath bomb? I can’t wait to try this apple scented one bomb, but I have a feeling a kiddo may beat me to it first.

I’m a major sucker for a face mask, major. I love all things pumpkin, so I have no doubt I’m going to L-O-V-E this mask. 🙂 Fall box swap.

I thought it was funny that we both sent each other “corn”, it just seemed like the right thing to send in a fall box. 🙂 The box I put together had a Friendsgiving theme. Do you want to see what I sent? You can see the fall swap box I sent Lowanda HERE.  You can also, check out what everyone else received here.



Thank you so much for my goodies, Lowanda!! And thank you to everyone who participated in the Fall #SPBoxSwap!! I enjoyed this swap and seeing your posts. 🙂 Happy rest of Fall!!


And just because I never got a chance to share my Halloween with everyone….

It’s time for the Galentine’s Box Swap Reveal #SPBoxSwap

Box Swap If you follow me on Twitter, Instagram, or you’ve read the last eh… hem… five posts I’ve written, you have certainly heard me mention the Winter Box Swap Galentine’s edition. But in the event you missed me talking about it, here’s the original post about what Galentine’s is and why we decided to go with this theme this winter. Each season my lovely partner in happy mail Ashley (Happy.Pretty.Sweet) and I host a box swap for bloggers to connect via good old snail mail. It’s a great way to connect and bring joy to a fellow blogger. We love it. We started our swaps this Summer and we’re extremely excited to see that things are growing! With this growth it means more mail, more happiness, and maybe a little change (maybe).  But enough about that, let’s get to the reveal!

I was partnered with Chantale, a lifestyle blogger. 🙂  Chantale’s blog is all about self discovery, love of books, and happiness. You know I can totally get down with that, because HELLO, work in progress over here. I appreciate that not only does she challenge herself, she challenges her readers too. I’m currently guzzling down water to keep up with the water challenge. 🙂 And who doesn’t love a good book list? If you’re looking for book reviews or want to help add to her list head on over to Iridescent Rebel.  I think I kind of ran with a self care/positive energy theme with her box, you can check that out here. But before you go check out what I sent, take a look at the goodies I received.

My goodies, my goodies, here’s my #SPBoxSwapGoodies…

(Who remembers old school Ciara?) 

It's time, it's time!! The Galentine's #SPBoxSwap Reveal

My goodies:

♡  Haribo Gummy Bears

♡  Planner book

♡  Valentine’s Stickers, or should I say Galentine’s? 😉

♡  The cutest gummy bear notebook

♡  Post-it sticky notes

♡  Paper Mate Ink Joy Pens

♡ Pen pouch

It's time for the #SPBoxSwap {Galentine's} Box Swap Reveals!!

I’m quite sure I did not state how much I love gummy bears on my questionnaire (everyone fills one out to help their partners), but somehow Chantale knew I love gummy bears. AND to top it off the gummy bears were SOUR 😍 . Anyone else out there love gummy/sour candies as much as I do? I’ll admit it, I steal the kids’ fruit snacks from time-to-time, because close enough. 😀

You know what else I didn’t tell my intuitive partner? I did NOT tell her or… shall I say I’ve never admitted to anyone that I have a healthy obsession with Word Streak with Friends. Word Streak formerly “Scramble” is a word game that I’m addicted to, I enjoy beating my family. The Word Scramble activity book is totally appreciated. Plus, I’m trying to keep my mind sharp. Yes, I’m already worrying about my memory. Anyone else?

Gummy bears and pens! Yes, please! The Galentine's Box Swap Reveals are live. :)

My notebook mantra: YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MANY. I’ve already put this cutie to use. 🙂 Paper Mate InkJoy is one of my favorite pen brands. Sharpies and Paper Mate all day everrryday. 🙂

Got some drawing in today and it felt good. I’m thinking of adding some more drawings to the shop. Thoughts?

I’m glad I have an extra place to store some of my pens, because it’s getting a little out of control over here, and I wouldn’t have it any other way! Thank you so much for all my goodies, Chantale!!!

Don’t forget to check out what I sent. 🙂
