My swap package

Thanks so much for your comments on my headband :) It's something I'm thinking about putting into my Etsy shop eventually.

I have yet to show what I sent and I what I received for my Just Because You're Lovely swap. There were a few problems and I'm not sure I would host another biggish swap. If I do it will be a postcard or letter swap or something small.

Anyway, here is what I sent to my partner, the lovely Jasmine.


This is the whole lot I sent her. It was mainly a lot of stationery because she has a little obsession like me.



A few pens and pencils.




A camera pen and some cute letter sets. 




Some highlights, paperclips and some masking tape.



A card, a journal, some stud earrings I made and a book locket necklace I made. 



This was the sweet card from Jasmine.


This was attached to the front of the parcel. 


The whole lot! I really love each and every item. I haven't tasted the tea yet but I might have it tonight. I adore the little spoon too. 


Plenty of butterflies :) and pink bits. 


This journal is amazing!! I've wanted to get one similar for while one. I love the old carte postale style (I'm thinking of starting a collection of items like this I think). 

Thanks again to everyone who participated. I truly hope you had fun. Remember you can email me photos or blog about the swap. And if you still have problems let me know.

Have an awesome weekend! After work tomorrow we are off to the Sunshine Coast for my brother's bday!

ohhh that camera pen is soo awesome!! sorry i couldn't participate this time around but i've just been too swamped! sorry to hear you had some problems tho. :(

Micaela said...

you girls did each other good! :)

i loved being part of this swap and meeting a new friend through it as well.

it's the sad thing about swaps... why would anyone sign up for one and not follow through? i just wouldn't feel right and it really hurts when you have someone that doesn't ... i've been burned twice and yet just so you know-- i never once blamed the hostess! so i'm sorry to hear you had problems sweet girl, but just so you know-- i'm sure no ill feelings were geared towards you :)

and i agree-- the camera pen is SO awesome! and i love the journal that was sent your way. cuteness!

have fun celebrating your brother! :)

I am so sad that I didn't take pictures of the package I sent my partner! I got her a journal, stationery, a pink leather clutch, two mini coin purses (she said she liked them), a pair of bow earrings from H&M, a romance novel (which she specified that she likes), and a book on astrology. I can't believe I forgot to photograph it! It was fun putting together & I am glad you hosted such a sweet swap. :)

Awesome swap packages! If you don't mind me asking, where did you get the tape you sent your partner? I use tape to make my hula hoops and that is a beautiful color, but I've never seen it here! Let me know -- haleyrenaexx@yahoo.com :)

~Haley~ said...

Also, just wanted to let you know again; even though I didn't recieve my end of the swap, I still had fun shopping for my partner. I hope her "excuse" was true and that I have a package coming, but I honestly doubt it. Thanks again lovely. :)

Oh, My Darling said...

Thanks again for hosting this swap! I had such a great time doing it!

Oh my goodness, I adore that notebook! I feel I'm attracted to things like that too. No explanation why, just cause.

Yay, I'm so glad you liked what I got you :) I had so much fun putting it all together.

I've already worn the necklace a few times and it gets compliments wherever I go :) And the pencil case is already filled with my gel pens!

Thank you so much for organising this swap, I'm sorry you've had some problems with it :(

Jess said...

What great packages! You are so generous! That is a shame you had some problems with people, totally not your fault though. I hope nothing like that happens with the colours swap. Oh and I wanted to say thankyou so much for the lovely card you sent me as part of your Spread the Love post. You have inspired me to pay it forward and do the same :)

blisschic said...

Wow! the packages look amazing and u definitely received some awesome goodies! :) i feel so guilty though because i think my package for my partner pales in comparison to all the lovely packages that most of you have prepared. oh well, i'll do better the next time round! :)

And one more thing, THANK YOU so much for organising this swap! I had a ball of fun and judging from the comments so far,it looks like everyone had a fantastic time as well :)

Lovely package! I'm pretty sure she's going to like it. Kellie xx

Kristin said...

What a fabulous bunch of goodies! I'm kinda burnt out on swaps which is sad. I signed up for one and never got anything in return and then the package I sent in another swap never reached its destination. And I sent a vintage bag. Le sigh. It's totally not your fault though!

Style, She Wrote said...

Such cute gifts! Love it.

its simple love said...

Oh my gosh!!! How adorable! That was my first swap and I absolutely loved it! I am hooked on swaps now. I signed up for another one already!!! :)
