I have just taken part in my third swap of the year which was organised by Joy over at Welcome to Daisy Row ; this time a Spring/Easter swap. The idea was to fill an ice cream carton with lots of goodies with a Spring/Easter theme. Once we had our partners, we emailed and my partner was Jean from Talking Beads . Once we were ready, we did email again to check all was on schedule and at that point I admitted a couple of things wouldn't fit in the carton and she said she wasn't going to use the carton, so that was all fine! I received my parcel yesterday and with a lot of excitement, opened it up. Red tissue and lovely red ribbon greeted me, followed by red gingham material.
It was a bit like pass the parcel!
Once I had opened that, here's what I found. Individually wrapped packages and a lovely card.
Inside the packages were: a bag of chocolate eggs, a yellow scented candle, a notebook with a beautifully hand made cover and my challenge - a seed bead necklace kit in a lovely spring green. I have never made a seed bead necklace, so Jean was right, it will be a challenge! Thank you so much to Jean for these lovely gifts and for being such a lovely swap partner!
So, what did I send?
My parcel was a bit squashy looking because I chose a very nice but rather flimsy cotton checked material to wrap it in.
(I did have to pack the things quite carefully, and not all would go in!)
Here's the selection of Spring/Easter bits and pieces (including, of course, a felt decoration and some earrings made by me!) that I sent. It was great fun to be involved in this swap, so thank you to Joy for organising it.
