Back in July Kirsty Vittetoe created a blog called City Crafter Party Blog where you can sign up to join in swaps. I couldn't take part in the first one as I was on holday so when the Lace & Doily Swap was announced I soon signed up. It is such a fun idea,you get to make friends with like minded people from all over the world and get a lovely surprise through the post.
My partner for the Lace & Doily Swap was Kirsty all the way from Las Vegas,how lovely to get the creator for my first swap!!! I got my parcel last Wednesday and when I opened it up I was thrilled with what I'd received and the beautiful handcrafted card which of course had got lace and a doily on it.
Look at what I got!!!
I was really touched by the personal touch that Kirsty had put into it,I had a handmade bookmark stamped and embossed with a doily stamp,handmade tags even the lace was wrapped around tags that had been stamped .I had lots of pretty doilys,punched borders (check out Kirsty's blog to see her wonderful creations with border punches) and even a wooden stamp.
Thank you so much Kirsty for my gorgeous parcel,I love it and for organising such a great event.
If you're an active blogger why not join in the next swap,it really is fun putting together a craft parcel for your partner and receiving one back.
