Glad you like it Lou, it'll be weird seeing your (no doubt amazing) pics of what I sent!

Apologies for being a little quiet in the UK swap threads, I've been lurking a lot! But can I just add my love for the gingham dragon to everyone else's?  Grin

Loving all the interesting things that people have come up with for this swap  Cool

I'm hoping my postman will bring me something lovely in the morning....I feel like I sit behind the door and wait for him...I'm gonna end up being late for work one of these days!

I've been on holiday at my parents so I only got my package late last night when I got in - I love it all! Thank you so much mpemporium!

(Sorry for posting URLs but I'm off to Liverpool in about 10 mins and I can't post across from Flickr! I'll edit this post when I get back so they're all easier to see :-)

Here are a few (shoddy) pictures. My Camera isn't great so I'm going to do my best!

Hellooo!

Here's the wonderful package I received from Bekibutton Smiley

Buttons GALORE!




A beautiful designer inspired bustle skirt sporting the union jack Smiley




Some beautiful little felt butterflies that becki laser cut herself after seeing how much I LOVE butterflies on my wists!


Ribbons and bias binding in my favourite colours Smiley


A cute little paper fan!


And lots of leaflets and brochures from her home town/area!

We agreed between us when we were first paired up that our towns weren't the most inspirational places for crafting based on where we lived.. (although I think now we've both sent, we've thought of loads of stuff we could've done!), so we did other little things, ie - union jack Cheesy

I'm so happy with my package, thank you Bekibutton! Smiley

Wow Loukr, those buttons look yummy in your photos Cheesy I love the photo of the fan too...I've just gone for the point-and-shoot option on these pics I'm afraid Smiley

I seriously have since thought of 101 things I could have done that are related to my local area, but I guess they'll just have to wait till next time! I was slightly frustrated at the lack of tourist-y things available where I live.  Undecided

Anyways I received from the wonderful Loukr and here are the pictures!

Package arrives - I tore it open in my excitement to find beautifully wrapped and rainbow coloured packages!



Once carefully unwrapped, I found:

A beautiful picture of Loukr's place of residence that she took herself:



BUTTONS! I've been wanting some military style buttons for a while, so these are absolutely perfect, and I'm already thinking that the clear vintage buttons are going to need their own special project Smiley



Lovely soaps:


A gorgeous and eminently useful bag from her Etsy shop and some flowers and leaves she pressed last year (the flowers are going to need their own project too):



Bunting! I love bunting, and this already has pride of place across the curtain rail in my bedroom Smiley



She also sent some chocolate buttons from my favourite chocolate shop Montezuma's, which has a shop in her city, but they didn't quite make it to being photographed! And of course the obligatory information leaflets along with a lovely postcard Smiley

Hope I haven't missed anything...Thanks Loukr for being an amazing swap partner for my first swap!

Becki

PS Thanks stellou for liking the skirt  Kiss

Ooh, buttons are so cool - I have just inherited a load from my Grandmother, and I had great fun delving into them!

I love the photograph of the rooftops Smiley

Here are the awesome items that I received from lemonianta:

A bag in Coventry's football colours (which has been put to use already), and an elephant bookmark to go with it:


A close-up of the elephant:


A group shot of all the loot Smiley


I also received some postcards and a bracelet from lemonianta from Northern Ireland, but unfortunately I don't have a picture of them yet...

Thank you lemonianta for being such a wonderful swap partner Smiley
