It’s been a while since I have done a swap and I’ve missed them so much. When I saw that my favorite ladies over at Chaotic Goddess Swaps announced their local flavor swap, I knew it was time for me join the swap world again, I had such a great time with this swap last year that I was all too eager to sign up again. Read below for the all the sweet deets!
