Swapping goodness

April 7, 2010 | Comment8 comments - join the party! |

Today I share with you a few goodies I got in swaps. I love swaps because you find new blogs and new shops, plus you get some lovely treasures.

This swap came from Amy in the Skunkboy Creatures Craft Swap. I received many lovely items, my most favored are the painting she made for me, using my favorite quote (which you can see in the right side of my blog), and these two prints.
I decided to use photos from her shop, as mine were not doing her work justice.

It was really sweet because I could tell she really sent things that related to me: the painting, the sewing machine and Polaroid print. Very thoughtful.

Same as my next package.

This package came from Undomestic Mumma.

I fell right in love. I had just found this blog a week before I received this package, and I hadn’t blogged about Pocket Carnival but had become a hug fan, so it was SUCH a nice surprise. It could be because like me she is the Mum of two boys. I love these little guys, the remind me of my sons.

These adorable deer buttons which lead me to Buttons by Lou Lou’s blog and shop.

She also sent me some fabric, extremely cute. I am guessing its a Japanese linen blend, I just love it.

Thanks so much for the Swaps!!

The Love Vintage Exchange is growing daily, I am so excited. The last day to sign up is April 16th, so if you are thinking about it, sign up now.

Oh such pretties you've received there and that painting is truly one of a kind. How wonderful 😀 I love swaps too and am only not signing up for your vintage one because I'm a bit of a newb to vintage. I hope you host more!

I had a lovely surprise in the post today! Thank you so much Kellie and you were spot on with those cards – I adore them!

Thanks for blogging about my little buttons. The fabric was also from me (well from my shop) – a cotton linen blend – Japanese Kokka. So nice to see that they have gone to a good home. Very nice of undomestic mumma. I am also a big fan of pocket carnival. One of my boys has a framed print on his bedroom wall.

You have done very well with your swapping.
