My partner received some time ago, so I guess it's ok to post some pics, because I had so much fun making it. I only took pictures of the front of the decorated envelope and a crafted item.

As she said she likes Moomin.....


And I made a Moomin coloring book for her kid who's learning to read. (I hope I choose the right Swedish words  Wink)





Now I want to read Moomin stories to my son as well, it looks so cute!  Cheesy And perhaps I should start learning Swedish too.

Wow Idlersdesign, I love the Moomin colouring book. What a thoughtful gift.

I received from our lovely org Mini_mum the other day. Pictures to follow.

There's so much variety in these envelopes.

I received from Hazelly yesterday!

So many beautiful fall cut outs.  I will definitely make some Thanksgiving decorations with these this fall!

I fell in love with the turkey and scarecrow right away!


Thank you very much, Hazelly!

My envelope from Mini_Mum arrived today Smiley


Christmas fabric, embroidery floss, 2 patches, and 2 postcards... 1 is a map of Yorkshire, the other is of Whitby Harbour.


Many different types of lace. I love the black hearts Smiley And the yellow yarn... of all things, it was dyed with green food coloring!

yup - green food colouring = yellow yarn, and blue kool aid = green yarn! Either I'm doing something wrong, or it's something to do with the yarn, I have no idea what the composition of the yarn is, but have 4 cops of it, so lots more experimentation to come Smiley (PS - not sure how well I 'set' it as only the 2nd time I've done any dyeing, and 1st with food colouring, so be careful what you use it for Smiley)

All 20 little fingers out the way at the mo (10 at nursery and other 10 asleep), so took the opportunity to take some pictures Smiley

I was feeling a bit stressed on Thursday - we'd had a very early morning, a drive of 1 1/2 hours and then an hour of me dressing & feeding the boys (and I'd forgotten Miles' shoes Sad), followed by sitting doing nothing while DH got his degree, then another 90 mins in the car home, grabbing the missing shoes, dropping me off for a meeting and Miles at nursery, with no time for lunch, so I was excited to find an envie from Eclectic Dreamer waiting for me on the doormat Smiley I squeeed, shoved it in my bag and having grabbed the errant footware went to the meeting, where I opened it Smiley

I was very good, and squeeeeeed very quietly as I saw all the wonderful goodiness I'd been sent Grin

The whole lot:


Bling:


The black stuff underneath the other bits is my VERY favorite - in fact I've asked for MORE because its SO cool Cool


You can just about see - they are scratch off alphabet stickers Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley I had a play on one of the sheets so you can kinda see how big the stickers are as I went between them.

I also received from FrankSpinello:

some lovely paper:



alphabet stickers Grin



the big ones are padded fabric & very tactile.

Some peel-offs, medals and  ?? felt? not sure what it is, but looks fun whatever it is!



A bag of fun Smiley



2 tree ATCs, playing cards from a snap game, foam letters, ribbons, pompoms, stamps, fun eraser, heart card toppers/stickers, goggle eyes & handmade flower



Last but by no means least - a hand made book with fun pages made of paper, felt and satin, it is just crying out to be 'smashed' Smiley, a matchbook notebook, some brads and a hand made leaf bead (polymer clay?)



THANK YOU to all my partners, and everyone else who has taken part!

I have had such fun with this swap - any one up for another round in a few weeks?
