To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

Thanks everyone x the good news is, it's all insured - so it can all be replaced - something that couldn't be said if it had been the house !
It was all quite a shock, our garages are in a block behind our house and it seems that bizarrely at some point in the early hours of the morning, someone was setting off a firework which ended up in our garage.
You know the worst bit, we had gathered 36 chair from freecycle (imagine ebay but free) and I was slowly recovering them - of course they all went up ! Oh well x I'm alive, the boys are alive and the cars weren't in there x

From such a knightmare couple of days - to a moment of pure joy.
my parcel arrived today.
I was a very good girl and opened my letter first, and Candice, what lovely words you wrote. THankyou for noticing and valuing my generosity, it is certainly part of myself that is recognised sometimes and abused often x It is often the plight of a therapist that we breathe out often, and it is essential that we remember to breathe in - Candice, your beautiful gifts find me on the second day after our fire, and after a night of limited sleep.
Im going to make you all wait till the end to show you my doll, but I was spoiled well and truly, each little parcel had a clue label on it which I made the children read - we all sat there with mouths open as we peeled back the layers of wrapping to find.......
Firstly, I was given these buttons which apparently were made years ago and Im to find a use for them. I reckon I am going to make a prayer flag called "receive" and pop them all over it. Im also making myself an re-loved art book, and they will go in there Smiley

Then there was this little parcel which indicated it needs a little stuffing and sewing.... OMG LOOK !!! Little gnome homes Smiley

Another parcel promised something for a sacred space, and contained a patchwork goddess, some sage and the most gorgeous scarf !

THe next was a parcel for the boys to take travelling Smiley Kayden exclaimed "oh mummy she is a true crafter, shes way better than you" HA ! Love him !

(I so know you all want to see my doll but be patient - I had to be !)

THis was a little parcel entitled "for your honey", My husband is a bee keeper, and here is a lovely card which Candice made - I reckon you made the stamp too right ". Im going to save this card and give it to him on his birthday which is in 2 weeks


OK ----- Are you ready------ Described as "to celebrate femininity and creativity" was....... this.......




Guys I cannot begin to tell you how gorgeously wonderful she is. Shes the length of my lower arm, so quite big. Shes shiny, shes wild but calm. And most of all, I can tell she was made with love.
She is BEEEEEUUUUTIFUL.  You most certainly were an angel Candice.

I am so glad that you loved everything. Two weeks was not much time, but I put a lot of thought and feeling into this package. I took on the task of creating something beautiful for you very seriously. I found the scarf at a little resale shop on the coast while I was visiting my grandparents two days before I had to send everything out. I knew that it was the perfect last piece of the puzzle. I also meant to include a note with the little house pillows that I do not have any buttons (gasp!) and hoped that you would include some for doorknobs and perhaps even embellish them further. I found the idea on one of your Pinterest boards actually and love it so much that I intend to make some for my own home. I enjoyed making this package for you probably more than I've enjoyed making anything for anyone else on here to date. It was my pleasure. This is one of the reasons I participate in swaps, I want to bring joy and happiness to people and hopefully add a smile to their day. Hang in there. Things may fall down, but they are sure to rise again before long.

What a wonderful package to send and receive. Thank you both for your patience and participation. I'm so happy this story had a happy ending. And Jolene - wishing you and your family the best during this crazy week.

Thanks everybody, once again, for a fun swap. Maybe we'll do it again in the fall....
