I recently signed up for the
This is such a lovely idea;
you are given a swap partner
and then send each other a package
of things that you love and
would like to receive.
I was given my swap partner
and we made contact.
She was lovely and we shared a bit
of our lives with each other.
I sent her a tin in which I put...
(please excuse bad photos,
my camera was dying),
a Fiddlesnips! Word Wall,
a Christmas decoration,
some sparkly twinkly earrings,
a lavender sachet to tuck in
her knicker drawer,
'bacon and eggs' collage.
I know that it was received because I
emailed a week or so later to check,
but unfortunately I haven't heard
anything from my swap partner
since then and it's now more than
a month since the sending off date.
It's pretty disappointing but I guess
that's the risk you take when signing
up for projects that require goodwill
and trust that people do what they
say they will do.
On the same theme, I also
signed up for a
and sent off my collage scraps
a few weeks ago.
I have yet to hear from my swap
partner so keep your fingers crossed!
