Cara Box

I am so excited for the New Year!
I'm working tonight but later this week I'll share some of my goals, and changes I'll be making.

Do you know about the Cara Box Exchange? 

If not, read about it here.
This month I was matched with Jess [from JMN Way] and Amanda [from The Mayor's Wife.]. 
Usually you send to one girl and receive from another, but I sent to both of my ladies because I loved getting to know Jess this month (who I was receiving from.)
 Here's what I got from Jess-

Her Hubby designed this awesome logo for my photography business and I am so geeked about it.

Candy Cane Sugar Scrub in a mason jar. Oh how I love the scent of peppermint and mason jars!

This awesome, "Thankful for... board."
I love it. She knows I've been through a lot and thought it would be a great way to stay positive if I kept track of the blessings in everyday life. [Below]

And last but certainly not least, she got me a new tag for Claire, my fur baby. I adore it. Its sparkle and purple, two of my favorite things! I love how we really got to know one another and all of her gifts were so appropriate and fitted just for me :)



  1. I was just thinking.. did I only send her 3 gifts? Then I remembered the nail polish incident.. but also the Doggie tag :) Hope it worked out too! SO glad I got paired with you!!

    1. SO glad I got paired with you too! I just revised this post a little to include the tag :D

  2. Oh wow! The logo is awesome! It's so nice to receive such a personalized gift. I signed up for the Cara Box exchange for January. I can't wait!

    1. I know! I was sooooo excited about the logo. Everything she sent me was very personalized. I loved how we really started learning about one another and not just sending gifts but things that mattered. I almost cried when I read her letter and got everything. You could tell there was so much thought behind each gift :D

  3. Laura, the logo is so very clever and professional.
    You've accomplished so much in 2012. Looking forward to seeing what you will create in 2013.

    Happy New Year Laura!

  4. I found your blog through the JMN giveaway and I am so glad I did, I love it and I am now following you!
