Recent Gift Swaps!

I've taken part in several swaps recently and although late, I wanted to share them here with you all. The first was an Instagram swap titled 'January Blues Swap' the idea being that after the Christmas period where we get thrown back into our routines, dull weather and clutter we need a little pick me up. Here's what I sent my swap partner: a kawaii pencil case, yummy chocolate bar, mix of nuts and lovely new socks.

Here's what I received:

I also took part in Hannah's #dicraftswap which had the prompt 'zodiac'. I made my partner a small canvas with the Libra constellation, a year of Libra book, and a make it yourself dream catcher. I was quite pleased with what I found to be honest and loved painting my mini canvas. ive just finished the next swap which was titled 'love' and will share this when the swap is over.

Here is the beautiful swap from my partner Louise. She sent me a key ring with the Scorpio constellation, a Scorpio bookmark, a note book which has been decorated for me, a beautiful stationery box which I can't wait to start using for my letter writing and some cupcake stickers which aren't pictures because I've used them already! I love stickers!

Lastly I took part in Jocelyn's #bringbackpaper stationery swap.

Here's what I received. So much lovely stationery I can't believe it and I feel thoroughly outdone this time round! Keep an eye on Joceylns and Hannahs blogs for future swaps, my blog for an upcoming mug swap and I've got more swap posts coming up in future!
