I received a lovely package from edel! This is my first MAF swap and I loved finding out about someone else. It's so funny that we have lots things in common, and yet some we are exact opposite! Grin

About edel: A fabulously glittery shrine to all the things she likes & an ATC to the Joy of Love!


Home package: Postcards (I love standing stones and always make detours on trips to visit them!), wonderful smelling local soap (love handmade soaps), a tea blend (I love tea too!) and handmade chocolate (not pictured because it was soooo yummy!)
Also, a Christmas card and frankincense resin as we had been talking about that. I love the smell so much!


All the things edel loves: Fabric, skulls (me too!), cocktails (yummy!) and some bling earrings


Thanks edel!

Wow, that package from edel is so creative! I don't think I have seen anyone take me up on the creative piece/atc option, everyone tends to do the photo album. It is all very lovely and refreshingly inspired!

My package arrived from pseudo_pix while I was at work today! I came home to my hubby pointing at it and saying, "You got presents! Are you going to open them now?" Lol. What a big kid! As soon as I can shoo him and his brother out of the house I'll post pics of pseudo's fabulous package!

I received from NiinaMaria yesterday. I hope the postman appreciated the lovely Marimekko box it came in:) I certainly did.



Local things- fabulous Marimekko fabric - I love poppies. Though I m a knitter rather than a sewer I love nice fabric. I have a plan for this fabric:) You can also see the cool box everything came in and a Marimekko bag. Also there was a DVD of the Northern Lights:) and a reindeer leather bookmark with my name on it. I love bookmarks and this one is so soft. The last two things represent Lapland where she is from. I have a fascination with the Arctic - so am lookinf orward to seeing the Northern Lights DVD.





Her favourites - her favourite magazine( had fun looking at the photos and trying to work out what the articles were about), Marimekko napkins(adorable pattern) and yummy chocolate biscuits - her favourite treat. You can see even more of he lovely fabric here.


We are both sending the photos/artwork part of the swap separately.

I just received my package today from mcook72677!

First is the scrapbook she sent me.  I only took a picture of the cover, but she used some really pretty papers on the inside.


My partner is from Michigan, so she sent me postcards, a local magazine, and this amazing rosemary mist spray.  As soon as I opened the box, I could smell it!!!


Lastly, for the favorites I received some Dove candy bars (very excited to take a bite of one...), a novel by Dean Koonz (I'm a bookworm), and some tasty lip balm.


Thanks mcook72677!!!  I can wait to start working on the next package  Cheesy

It was a cold and wet night, our heroine was returning home from a long day at work, tired brainsore and weary, she came into the house and her mood was instantly lifted by a ray of sunshine from Seville. I got my package from Phizzychick today.

it is fabulous and I adore everything, so in no particular order. She sent some great photos of Seville and the cathedral, a beautiful bookmark of some of the floor tiles, some yummy (strawberry ) smelling tea (I sent her tea too!!) from her local shop, A gorgeous little ceramic framed mirror, also made locally.
 
They have a tradtion there of Navidad (Hope I have spelled that correctly, brain completely fried today!) where they have a float and they give out candy, so she sent me a christmas decoration which is so adorable and candy, of which not a lot left as my daughter has got her hands on it.


She also sent this gorgeous piece of art, its a double sided heart shaped hanging piece of art, i love it. Isn't it gorgeous.


and my very very favourite thing, my daughter I are totally wowed by it, she made and bound an entire book about her favourite things. I adore Phizzychicks art work and am completely stoked at this.


this is my favourite page from inside


and a couple more pages.





Thanks Phizz

It made me very happy:) I have a friend who has a Marimekko pillow case - she will be very jealous, lol.

Phizzy - love the little book - very creative.

Here is the fun package I got from bekahzzzz
First we have two photo pages she did. One has pictures of her self on them and the other has a picture of a Sponge Bob cake she made and Mill Mountain and its star.

Then we have some post cards of Roanoke

Then she sent me a mug from Mill Mountian Coffee which she says has been around longer than Starbucks. She filled it with some pumpkin spice coffee.

She sent a box of chocolates from Baylee's Best, the chocolates where not around long enough to be photographed but I saved the box. She sent a hat made out of her favorite yarn, and a book that she says is one of her favorite type books. It's Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie.

She also sent a bottle of vanilla that she says is the best, I forgot to take a picture of it.
