2014 Valentine Swap!

Do you know what cookiers love more than ANYTHING else in the cookie world? Can you guess? It’s receiving cookies from other cookiers! ♥

2014 Sweetbook Valentine Swap

So I asked a bunch of my cookie friends if they would like to participate in a Valentine Swap with me… and a bunch said yes! I spent the next four weeks in giddy anticipation, ready & excited to start receiving all of their beautiful cookies! And oh my, but they did NOT disappoint!

Now, as the boxes began arriving, my “cookie room” started to become a disaster zone. It was all worth it, though! My husband helped me on the final night of packing, and we decided to sort out the cookies on the table (with all the leaves in for length!) to start an assembly-line process for packing. Even still, four designs’ worth of cookies would not fit, and they are in boxes on chairs next to the table. See?



Then we carefully packed the cookies in bubble wrap in sets of 2, and I nestled them back into shipping boxes for each cookie girl. We also made up 3 surprise boxes for a few dear friends who weren’t able to participate at this time. Honestly, we were all so much more excited about those girls getting their boxes of “cookie love” than we were about having the cookies ourselves! (The cookie community is really sweet, y’all! ♥ )
