Today is National Swap Idea Day! Didn’t you know that?? :D Well we knew and we decided to commemorate it by throwing together a blogger swap with some of our favorite DIY girls from around the web. Amazing right!?
Well since we got to come up with a fun project, send it to a blogger we highly admire AND we received a fantastic project to keep and display on our desks, we sure think it’s pretty amazing!
This is only the first in what we hope to become a quarterly blogger swapping collaboration! Each swap will feature a theme and for our first one we chose desk accessories/office supplies and organizing tools. I may have been leaning towards that because I felt like my desk really needed some accessories and organizing help. Call it manipulative but I DON’T CARE because I got the most perfect thing back from Christina of Christina Williams Blog and it has completed my desk, nay I say my life!
Isn’t this desk caddy so nifty?! I love how each little glass fits perfectly in it’s spot and is filled with cute and necessary items and I OBVIOUSLY love the mint color, it’s perfect for my space! Can you believe I had no push pins?? Seriously! I didn’t own one and I often need them so I couldn’t be happier that I now have so many! I think a cork board DIY may be in my near future..
I love Christina’s project, I love that I get to keep it and I love all the other amazing projects the other bloggers came up with! Head on over here to get Christina’s DIY and then visit the rest of these awesome ladies projects and follow along with their blogs and instagrams, you will NOT regret it!
Sara from Tell Love and Party made these cutie flamingo push pins
Miranda from One Little Minute Blog whipped up this amazing plant and pencil holder
And the Sorelle sisters made these fab black and white coasters
My project may not be as useful as the one I received but I just hope Sara didn’t need any push pins! haha! I think this little marquee light came out super cute and, for me, it’s important to have whimsical pieces around my work area that keep me motivated and inspired so I hope Sara gets that out of this piece.
This was super easy and with all the holiday lights hitting store shelves you shouldn’t have a hard time completing one yourself! Yours can say whatever you want but I provided the template for the word fun if you want to do one just like ours. Click through for the full how-to!
