Here is the box that I received from Jeri, for our Sisters of The Traveling Shoe Box (STSB) swap. It's a mix of Baroque minimalism...and the tropics (thanks to the hibiscus flowers). :-) It's an unusual combination, but it works! I love the black and cream color combo. And yes, this box is hubby-approved!
I sent her this box. She goes for Japanese aesthetics in her decor, and she loves fall colors. It was quite a challenge, so here is what I came up with:
And to ensure that there won't be any "dibbs" on the things that I sent her, I included a claim check as well.
It will be a long while before I would join swaps like this again, since my focus right now is the Design Team projects and the GIBBS (Girls I'm Broke Box) swap--the swap for handmade items. But I had a lot of fun, and Jeri is a great partner. I'd love to be partnered with her again!
