Hello! :) Most of you who have been reading my blog for quite a while know that I LOVE swaps! :) My first swap was about two years ago with Claire of HeartHandmadeUK after we got to know each other trough Indie Biz and were relatively new to blogging and to the DIY community. My second swap was a pretty big deal, I organized a huge swap this past spring and invited some of my favourite bloggers and my third swap partner was Mona of ansteckend anders, she sent me a super cute brooch which was prettily packed.
Then, a few weeks ago, I commented on the beautiful lace mats of Eni of Mein Morgenstern (translation: My Morning Star) on Instagram and she offered me to send me some. We exchanged a few mails and decided to prepare a little swap, we wanted to send each other a little box full of handmade things and materials.
When I opened the package she sent me, I was soooo completely overwhelmed, there were sooo many pretty things inside (look at the photos above and below!!), full of beautiful details and super cute stuff! She sent me an amazing handmade bag, a super pretty pouch, beautiful vintage fabric, a pillow case, a tiny (phone) pouch, organic tea, buttons, a hair bow, a headband, lace mats, a vintage coaster... When opening the package, one could immediately feel how lovingly it had been filled with all those precious things, thank you again so much, Eni!!! <3
I sent her a handmade mini pinboard, a pouch, fabric, a hair bow, too, handmade felt pinwheels, a tiny, handmade notebook, a fabric key chain, a button and two little bags made of vintage fabric which were filled with little zippers, nail polish and wooden beads. :) I really like the package that I made for her, but I LOVE the package she made for me!!!
I love swaps so much, if you haven't ever participated in one, you should definitely give it a try!!
