Hello there, remember me??!
I've hardly spent anytime online these past couple of weeks and so I am way behind with blogging and reading what everyone is getting up to. I hope to catch up over the next couple of days, both with what we've been up to and also popping by the lovely blogs I follow too.
The reason for my post today is to say a huge thank you to Michelle for the totally fabulous swap parcel she sent me.
I don't enter many swaps as I'm not much good at crafty stuff but this one organised by Lakota over at http://faithhopeandcharityshopping.blogspot.com/ was more up my street. So a big thank you also to Lakota for organising. The swap had to be a maximum of 5 items, one had to be a Christmas dec, one had to be handmade and at least one had to be a thrifted item.
I opened the card from Michelle first, isn't it good.
This is how my parcels looked before I unwrapped them, so pretty in their gold paper and colourful ribbons.
And here they are all unwrapped. A fab set of lip balms, a sachet of hot chocolate and some chocolates which obviously had to be sample immediately, a crocheted angel for our tree, a scarf in beautiful muted colours and the most gorgeous little notebook.
Here is a close up of the cover. Isn't it just one of the sweetest things you've ever seen?
Here are the goodies I sent Michelle. We actually posted our parcels last Wednesday and I know Michelle received hers ok. My postman tried to deliver mine when I was out so I had to wait nearly an extra week before it was collected from the Post Office. Well worth the wait though!
I sent Michelle a set of notebooks, a snowflake decoration, a set of nail varnishes, a handmade keyring and a purple scarf/wrap. Plus a little chocolate something for her two children.
Feeling very festive here!
