I got partnered with Alanna, who I met very briefly at our Wreath Gathering and whose work I have since swooned over. Go check out her blog to see what I mean. Yeah? You see? Let's just agree that I won the post-a-parcel lottery..
I sent Alanna some gold and silver leafed cards, handmade paper envelopes, a tiny embroidery ring with stitched arrows, some heart cupcake toppers and 'Oh My Stars' kraft paper bunting. In return I got some gift tags, a scented sachet (lavender!), a gorgeous beaded necklace, a wooden bird ornament and HOMEMADE VANILLA EXTRACT. Yep, I'm spoilt.
If you guys haven't participated in a swap yet, make sure you keep an eye on Nia's blog and jump on the next one okay? There is something so very therapeutic about carefully picking and crafting 5 things to send to a new friend. And the anticipation for your own parcel to arrive is just about the most exciting thing ever. Thanks Nia! And thanks Alanna!
