Have all the festivities died down a little, yet? I have to admit, my Xmas Day only really begins today due to family commitments. But I thought I'd share some presents with you. As well as running my annual #bloggersecretsanta swap, I took part in Janet's #thrifygiftswap this year, too. I sent my parcel off (failing to take any photos of it before sending) to my recipient, and then a few days later, received this box of goodies from Louisa.
To be honest, my parcel was pretty much perfect! I felt as though Louisa really hit the nail on the head with things I'd love and she'd clearly done some research. So, what did she send me?
Well, a jar full of pretty buttons and ribbons to use on future sewing projects. I particularly can't wait to find the perfect project for these amazing owl buttons.
A mini Christmas cake, some dinosaur socks (perfect as I never have any socks!) and a rather fabulous dinosaur baking notebook, which has plenty of space to note down new recipes. A huge improvement on the way I currently tend to do things, which is writing them on the back of an envelope or a post it note, which then goes missing.
Louisa also sent me a Ladybird book of Things to Make, and a Cath Kidston soap. I think she did fabulously well with all of my little presents and I really loved taking part in the swap, so thank you to Louisa for my parcel and to Janet for organising, too.
Did you take part in any swaps this year?
