Great packages everyone!! I particularly love Razberry's mermaid tote and Ptarmic's underwater vest!

I got such a great package from Poppyache, I have serious swap anxiety!!...

Hi Xray Kitten, thanks!! I'm super excited about moving home  Grin (although houses in Stockholm are so Shocked expensive we can't find somewhere nice to live so it's a bit stressful at the moment...) And hi to Kenners too, nice to meet some Swedish Craftsters!

Well, we're moving in August, and I thought as soon as I get a broadband connection up and running (but first a house to put the computer in...) I'll start sign-ups. How does that sound to everybody? I'm really pleased so many are interested, think this should be a fun swap!!

I received from the supertalented Poppyache!!! It's a fantastic package, lucky me!!!
(And poor me, imagine the swap anxiety that lies ahead...  Roll Eyes)

Thank you so much Poppyache, I LOVE everything, it's totally made my day!!!

The themes she crafted to was: old/fragile, lacey, random and secret.

On to the pics!! It was all wrapped up beautifully:



First package I opened, a quilted pencil case with some lovely old lace and vintage pencils inside, + 3 lavendel bags. I needed a new pencil case so that's really handy too!



Next a lovely bib for my baby boy with Cristopher Robin embroidered on it, a romantic decorated photo album, some cards, and a fabulous secret book box!!



The inside of the box, full of secret treasure!!! A cute needle holder bird, a badge, a lace bracelet and two beautiful art objects in resin......... (+ a vintage scarf I couldn't fit into the picture)



Here is a close up of those cards, are they hand-drawn? They are beautiful either way!!



And I really needed a new key ring, only I feel like this is too precious to use...



(text says: secrets are made to be found out with time; if you reveal your secrets to the wind you should not blame the wind for revealing them to the trees)

And last but not least, these coasters, although I think I might try to find a frame and put the one on the right on the wall, it's gorgeous!



Thank you so much again Poppyache, everything is so well thought out and made and it has such a lovely look, you really spoilt me!!!!

I'm pretty sure I've received from Poppyache, but I wasn't in when the postman came around so I have to pick it up from a depot. And my husband has the car, so I can only get it on Saturday  Sad

Still, that means I have something to look forward to!!!  Cheesy

Hi everybody!!

I'm so glad there is so much interest, and sorry it's taken so long to do something about it!!

Well, things are a bit of a chaos here because my husband has been offered a job in Sweden (my home country) and we're planning on moving in August! I've lived in England for 11 years now so it's a huge change, and I think a lovely tea party swap would be a very befitting way to celebrate my time here. BUT it's hard to find the time to get it started between trying to find a new home and sorting out the practicalities!! Would anybody want to take over, or would you mind waiting a bit longer?  Huh Roll Eyes

By the way, my thought on the ironic tea cozy thing is whether you do it with a 'twist', like update it or make it quirky or kitch. I like traditional too actually. I thought it would be nice to get to choose preference (if any) what you like to make / receive.

I have the ideas and most of the materials but they been sitting on a shelf for these last weeks. We're moving countries and it's crazy busy, I should probably not have signed up for a swap, but you have to have some fun too, right?!  Roll Eyes

I was reading about the crying out thing - we tried it but chickened out, it was unbearable... Actually it's kind of working anyway as he sleeps from 7 to 5, but oh, how wish that it was to 7 instead.... How is it working for you?
