‘Send Us Christmas’ Swap

Last year, I took part in a bloggy Advent swap which was great fun, so when I saw my sender Kimberley was hosting a ‘Send Us Christmas’ swap, I signed up straight away. The premise was simple: send items that fit into a 1L container, including a Christmas decoration, a favourite Christmas recipe, and something handmade.

I was paired with Michell, and had fun stalking her blog to find out a little more about her. Michell quilts, and I’m always terrified of making things for people who can really craft, but I was pleased with the little decoration I ended up stitching for her. It’s always risky but fun choosing things for someone you don’t know, but I figure that if I send things I’d like to receive, I’m fairly safe.

The decoration was designed and stitched by me (yes, really!), and I made the little rose studs as well as the paua necklace. I love my alphabet stamps from Pop Roc Parties so much, and it was nice to use them to send Michell some of my favourite peppermint tea leaves.

However, I have managed to hide the Jaffas from myself my children, which is kinda like saving the whole parcel until Christmas Day, right? I love the cheerful little elf, and the green mini utensils (which are likely to be stolen by my teeniest one, who just loves to raid my kitchen drawers!).
