I do love a good swap, so naturally I signed up to the latest UK esty sellers swap organised by ColdCell immediately. I was so excited when the postman rang the bell last week to give me this beautifully wrapped package. I had an inkling of who it might be from when I saw that the package was wrapped in an old map and I was right - I was lucky enough to be paired with Amelia, queen of decoupage. And look at the goodies I received - a lovely journal covered in a map of the town where I live and fastened with a lovely bright red button
Also, some lovely paper goods - a camper van card, a package of beautiful handmade envelopes and a card with a hard shaped motif made from another map of the place where I live!
And it was all so beautifully made and prettily packaged in tissue paper with pretty stickers, a moo card and little cut out hearts and stars from maps (which my daughter promptly claimed!).
Thanks so much, Amelia - I'm thrilled with it all! Do have a look at Amelia's etsy shop, Bombus, for lots of wonderful paper goods, journals and decoupaged accessories.
It wasn't a straight swap, so I was allocated another etsian, EclecticB, and here's what I sent to her after studying her likes and dislikes - a shimmering scarf, kawaii pencil case, lavender bags and tissue holder:
I really enjoy these swaps when they come around, and I've already signed up to the next one - a UK cake-off, after all, what could be better than surprise cake by post?
