I recently blogged about the polka dot gift swap I did here, all of which was started off by Popular Crafts Magazine. Tonight, after finally managing to get my photos to load from my phone, I can show the world what the lovely Natalie from Ready,Steady..Mummy! sent me. It was pure coincidence that we were set up as partners and I am so thrilled at our stroke of luck- her gift is thoughtful and full of what I love!
When I unwrapped my parcel pink just screamed at me! This wine bottle gift box was a great idea for putting my gifts in. When I popped the lid off my gifts were almost jumping out! At the top you can see cupcakes this made me smile! Right at the bottom however, Natalie had found a plant pot and painted it this lovely shade of pink- it's great! It wasn't until I read Natalie's post that I find out the dots were stuck on! This was a great gift idea and will totally cheer up my garden. She also popped in some of these beautiful flowers (and lots of shredded paper!!) I love gifts like this!
Also in my gift I had some bought items which is rather a lot like a challenge these days! As part of the swap you have to buy a gift totaling no more than £3. I love a good hunt and it seems Natalie does too as she picked up an apron and matching oven glove- they are so me thank-you!!
