Garden Swap

After the success of the last swap I took part in I signed up to another swap, this time run by the lovely Kerry of Pennydog Accessories .

The rules were as follows:

You must make one handmade item in a garden theme, this can be something for the garden, or something with a gardeny theme- insects, flowers, etc.

An item of a crafty nature that your swap partner can use in their own crafting- fabric, buttons, stickers, etc

An edible treat- chocolate, cake, etc

I, as is becoming increasingly normal, forgot to take pictures of the package I sent to Amy in America. Hopefully she will post about it on her BLOG. If she does I will post to send you over there to check them out.

Amy sent me a wonderfully FULL parcel and everything was so beautifully packaged. First of all a lovely photobook that I can add my own pictures onto along with some coasters and a magnetic corkboard for putting messages or notes on.

Card, notebook, incense sticks and the little felt flower buttons that she used to wrap the items. Amy also sent me a lovely vase wrapped in some gingham cotton, some plant markers and some seeds which my mum "ooooeedd" over.

I hope she enjoys her part of the swap. Thanks Kerry for organising all this!

Hey Kat!
I am such an idiot! I sent a thank you email to Kerry. doh! I am sorry! I want to thank you for the wonderful swap package! Oh wow! I love the garden bag you made me! It's absolutely perfect! I used it today for the library and the pockets you added are great for holding my car, cell phone, and keys! A lady asked me where I got it, I told her a friend from Glasglow and she was disappointed that she culd not go out and get one locally. I love the patches you added with the different textures and fabrics! So fun! Thank for sending me the scrapping supplies too! How fun! Can't wait to use! I am saving the candy for myself. I know, not nice but it's so darn tasty! The crab card was so cute that you made! I like all the glitter accents! Thank you again for the fantastic garden swap! I appreciate you taking the time to get to know me and personalize it. Such a treat for me. :-) Thanks! Amy

Hi Amy!

Im glad you liked the bag! I was a bit worried that it wouldnt be to your tastes but now Im glad that I know you liked it!

Of course, the chocolates were just for you so NO need to share!
