swap fever

I have finally managed to finish off my ornaments for the holiday swap. It feels like it has taken me forever, but I am glad they are done now and on their way to their new homes!

Each of them were packaged in a little bag to keep them safe during their journey!

I also signed up for the postcard swap - I don't think I will sign up for more than one swap at a time in the future, it was hard work trying to come up with an idea for the postcards. I just drew a blank and had no idea what to make! As you can see, I kept up with the tree theme........

They were posted off this morning too! Now for a cup of tea........

nicbiccie said...

I love the postcards too...that is my fav colour combination! Lovely!

monica said...

they're sooo beautiful.

I've sent mine but am kind embarassed by them. I guess house moves and 'swaps' really don't go together.

I'll do better next time I promise!!

Soo said...

Thank-you! It is prints charming, went there months ago to have a peek and picked these up with Christmas in mind!

vera said...

the ornaments are sweet and so are the postcards :0) x

Ali said...

Oh my, those are both so beautiful. Love the little ribbon (?) trunks on the trees. And the green polka dot fabric, well, actually, I love every single thing about them.

kirsten said...

they are all so lovely - I love the trees and their special little travelling pouches. And as for the red and aqua postcards. I just wish I was the lucky recipient.

oh how nice!! LOVE the tree theme!!I also joined the postcard swap..and put one in the mail to you on Monday. I hope you like it :)

tiel s-k said...

I got mine! And it was such a lovely surprise. Thank you thank you and thank you. They are sitting up in my kitchen.

I bought a piece of the prints charming material about a year ago and it is still sitting waiting for the right project to do soemthing with.

But I'm confused! I didn't send you anything in the swap. I had different names on my list. I am new to swapping so I'm not sure how it works.

Very glad that I got yours however.

Soo said...

thanks so much for all the nice comments.
i'm a little confused too....but i guess it will be a nice surprise when i receive my other postcards!

Sue said...

I absolutely love the postcards. Mine arrived in the mail today, so thank you very very much. I have to agree with the effort put into mine, as upon receiving yours I feel a bit bad about mine. I too sent to different people so I am not sure how the swap is worked out, but your postcards were so lovely to receive, and now I have a new blog to read too!

littlemissmeshell said...

haha, I was confused too as I didn't have you on my list! I guess we are sending to different people than the ones who are sending to us? Actually it was very strange because I saw these on your blog and then the next day...they were in my letterbox! LOL

Fiona said...

Totally agree with one swap at a time. I loose track of what goes where. You have done a lovely job on both and love the same tree theme for both.

barbara said...

Love your xmas decorations & postcards. I have a query - I'm in Sydney and can't seem to find anywhere that stocks lovely felt - any hints on where I should look?

you can find nice wool felt at patchwork stores (try material obsession or purple patch). I've also managed to find wool felt on ebay!
