I joined in with two swaps for the festive season. I love these bloggy swaps - and it's always good to get some Happy Mail.
Tracy from the blog Mad About Bags hosted a Christmas Cracker Swap. I was partnered up with Kimberley from Creative Chaos. We had a good laugh about this as we have been partnered up for so many swaps.
Below is what I put together for Kimberley.
I filled the inside of the cracker with Chocolates and some Christmas craft pegs and wrapped it up with a Jamie Oliver tea towel (I know from her blog posts that she loves Jamie Oliver and tea towels).
Using the other tea towel I made up a parcel of treats that included a felted stocking decoration that I made, ginger biscuits, tissues, a wooden bird decoration, Christmas peg bunting and a recipe for fudge that I love to make. I decorated the cracker and parcel with a artificial pohutukawa stem (native New Zealand flower) and mesh flower. I hope she loved it, as I much as I enjoyed putting her Christmas Cracker and treats together.
Below is what Kimberley sent to me. She knows me well and put together a really lovely cracker.
I love the reindeer decoration and heart magnets. I'm thinking a girlie tea party with friends may be in order so I can put to good use the cup cake cases, mini flags and straws. The stationery and stamps are sweet.....I will be hiding those as Bell has been eyeing them up!
Thank you Kimberley for being such a great swap partner (again!). Even with the busy festive season it is always really nice to make time to do a couple of swaps.
Did you join in with any over December?
Do you know of any good ones out there in blog land at the moment that would be fun to join in with?
