for The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2013
This time of year it’s not the grand gestures that stick out in my mind. It’s the little things. I didn’t know what the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap was until this year when I was doing some food blog browsing and happened to see a little button for it on someone’s blog. I thought it was something I would love to try but was worried about having enough time to do it.
It turned out to be a one afternoon project and it was well worth the trouble. My favorite part of the whole project was looking at the blogs of the people who sent me cookies and knowing that they took time out of their busy schedules to make me a yummy treat. It was fun to connect with other bloggers across the country. I will definitely participate in it again next year! I also thought it was great that we were able to be a part of raising funds for kids’ cancer.
It is basically the same concept as a regular cookie swap only it happens online and you ship your cookies off to the names and addresses provided by the hosts of the swap.
If you are interested about how it works here is a list of links with information that will explain everything:
These are the cookies I got from Amy at A Healthy Life for Me.
Before I could get a good photo of her cookies my family ate them all! So this is the tin Linz from ITZ LINZ sent my cookies in.
This is the peppermint bark I got from Brittany at A Healthy Slice of Life:
All these treats were so wonderful! Thank you all very much!!!
