I received a WONDERFUL package last week from the lovely and talented zombiecazz and only just posting it all now...
The parcel arrives and B & G are NOT impressed that I made them have a pic taken before they ripped into it!!!
Firstly some pictures done by Kelsie - Bix was seriously impressed that she knew he liked Moshi monsters (even though he helped fill out the questionnaire) and Gigi loved the cat - both of these now up in frames in their bedrooms
Something to Cuddle - a pair of sock monkeys! This was my first experience of seeing a real "live" sock moneky, and allthough I maintain that I don't really like dolls and plushies and stuff - I have to say, I'm absolutely addicted to these now, FAB colours and B & G both LOVE them!!
Something to read was two fab books, which I didn't get pictures of and they've taken them to their dads house - Bix got a science book and Gigi got a Nemo book with CD
Something food related - a homemade cupcake recipe book, measuring cups, baking cups and aprons for both of them. We LOVE baking, so this was absolutely fab for us.
Something long - a crocheted snake for Bix. I'm am COMPLETELY in awe of anyone who can crochet, especially something as amazing as this - RESPECT to you Cazz, he's awesome! (I found B with the snake wrapped round his neck after he'd fallen asleep!!)
Something warm - WONDERFUL crocheted slippers for G - again she loves them and I've had to stop her from trying to sneak out of the house in them - they fit perfectly!!! (oh and the sock monkey sneaked into the pic again!)
now I get a bit conufsed, because stupidly I didn't keep a track of which label was attached to which thing - but two beautiful upcycled cushions, one for each with their favourite sayings on them - I think this was something G
and finally - a trick or treat bag for each of them to take out, this will be the first year they go trick or treating and are SOOOO excited about it - so these were just perfect. Bix's has a mummy on it, and Gigi's has a cat on it - both absolutely great.
Oh NO - I forgot, there was a surprise for me too!!!! A super warm and snuggly hat - that actually FITS (I have a very big head and have a nightmare with hats) - LOVE THIS to pieces
This has been a wonderful swap, the kids loved everything they got and I thoroughly enjoyed making everything - thank you Cazz for being an SUPERSONIC partner!!!!
