Assorted card blanks and envelopes in lovely pastel colours.
A mini scrapbook with ribbons
Pink and Blue really fondley-type fibres
Bag of assorted buttons in different colours
3 bags of flowers
2 bags of brads, lovely colourful girly stuff, i was well pleased, when the package came and i opened it and im squealing and grinning from ear to ear and DH says "whats that?"
I said "my secret craft swap"

He walked away muttering "Flippin-craft, thought she,d won a load of money!"

Im so pleased with the stuff-can you tell?

Usually you have to guess, was it named? You can of course put who it was.

jenk1 Sun 14-May-06 22:38:07

Stitch, I have double checked and I never received an e-mail from you. If you would like to swap, you need to e-mail me on and I can fit you in without a problem.

Thank thank you

It had papers- lots of lovely papers in A4 and 12 X12; fabric pieces; ribbon; fabric padded shapes; a metal embossing set (wow); die cuts; ideas books- just so much that I was and . My first words were OMG.

Thank you ever so.

I sent my swapper hers days ago but no mention.

Do you know, I was worrying to death

I'm glad you like every thing I put the metal embossing & picture thingy in cuz you said you liked to try new crafts.

I can sleep tonight

Carolinett Thu 18-May-06 13:50:53

forgot to say
why I sent you those mirror card frames was if you've got a coloured permanent marker you can colour them what ever you want and they will stay shinny

peachyClair Thu 18-May-06 16:38:49

It was perfect, and coz I've got some papers I can do a new page or two. When I was a kid I used to play in the fields between our house and the Church, and I got a postcard of that on EBay this week (the Church- 1905). Its now known as Trinity Fields Estate [sdad] so it will be a joy to do a page from the card.

Carolinett Thu 18-May-06 17:53:55

Post it in the gallery when you've finished it so I can see

I Love old things

Thats why I love my DH so much
hope he never looks on this site

peachyClair Fri 19-May-06 12:08:53

JM- am going to have to out myself as concerned that you may not have received your swap?

JayzMummy Sat 20-May-06 20:53:07

No package here Peachy....I'll get Dh to check with another house in the next village that has an identical address to us bar one word....they also have the same surname!!! Our regular postie is on holiday plus the road to our house is thinks that Mr Postie couldnt be bothered to go the long way around as we have had very little post this week.
As soon as I know anything I will let you know.....Im all excited now

peachyClair Sat 20-May-06 22:00:26

Please check- the others I sent (a parcel to FA and one to GScrym) arrived the next day. I do have proof of postage though.

First let me start by apologising for not posting Friday 19th, when your swap package arrived. I’ve been so busy and I know that’s not an excuse for rudeness.

I was thrilled to bits with my swap

I got some

Packets of
Golf embellishment
Fish embellishment
Butterfly embellishment
Two beautiful 12x12 velour sheets, one with embossed funky roses & one with stars & moons
A4 Psychedelic Mulberry paper with gold shells on
A4 sheet of bright yellow glitter card
A pack of C6 cards & envelopes, in lovely colours.
A beautifully handmade shaker card.
Didn't I do well

Every piece that I received I will be able to use. Thank you Thank you Thank you very much.
