Take Me To The Fair: My June Cara Box

It's time for a super fun post! I joined in with Kaitlin at Wifessionals for the June Cara Box Exchange. Cara Boxes are fabulous friendship boxes based around a theme each month. You make new friends, and have fun putting together treats for them!

My box came from Krystal at Pressing Pause. Krystal was so sweet as we emailed and got to know each other a little bit! It made me grin when I opened my box and saw the bright colored tissue paper she used. Totally right for this month's "Take Me To The Fair" theme!

My box was packed with colorful fair fun - from zebra ducktape to orange nailpolish to roasted almonds! The best part was the final item. Something I'd been wanting for myself for the last few weeks, and sniffing each time I wandered through Target.

The Sweet Spun Sugar Scented Soy Candle. OMG. I giggled when it arrived, because there was no way Krystal could have known I almost bought it the week before.

Thanks for such an awesome box Krystal! Can't wait to keep in tough via blogland!

Now for the other part of my Cara Box Exchange, I sent a box to Maria at Keeping It Stepford. Hers was wrapped in three parts, and I only managed to take a picture of part 2. The first part was for "getting ready" for the fair, and the last part was "recovering from the fair." Everything from lip gloss to face masks and instant coffee!

But my favorite was the "at the fair" part of the package. Jawbreakers, a huge sucker in a fun cup and Crystal Light margaritas (you know, since I can't actually ship alcohol, right?). You can read Maria's post here.

It was a great month, and I'm already signed up for the July box!

Here's to a great rest of the week,
Mrs. Jones
