Contents of a swap

This year I finally got to participate in the "Flat Swap' and I must say I was a bit nervous. I'm not an expert at swaps, and it also felt a bit weird to have to be the one picking someone to be your partner.

I soon forgot I was the one organizing it, and set off to make, wrap and send. I do take the flat part very seriously, because if the measurements are not correct, the "letter" becomes a package, and the price, a massive pain in the wallet.

My partner proposed the guidelines from last years swap (a letter, something handmade, a quote, something I own, and something edible).

And then I chose flowers as the theme.

Some of the parcels from the swap have been arriving, and some are here if you want to take a look.

I'm still waiting for others to send me some pictures so I can put them on the blog's FB page.

Wishing you a lovely week ahead,
