Back in May I signed up to participate in a swap hosted by Dionne, and funnily enough I ended up with Dionne as my swap partner. I posted about the items that I received from Dionne in this post, but I completely forgot to take pictures of the things I sent to her before I packed them up to post. I had been waiting for Dionne's post about the swap so that I could link to her pictures of my items, but she sent me the pictures just the other day and I thought it would be fun to share them with you here.
First up, here's a picture of all the little goodies I sent her.
I sent her some handmade goodies including the dish towel, coffee cozy, fridge magnets, hairband, and tissue cozy; I also sent her tissue for the cozy, vanilla sugar, a recipe, needle card, a notebook, and a package of sour patch kids. I also made the card. Because Dionne loves boardgames I used some extra Monopoly money I had and made a little tag for each item explaining why I thought she's like it.
Here are the handmade goodies (minus the tea towel and magnets) closeup.
The handmade items are all hand sewn too because I didn't have a working sewing machine at the time. I love cover buttons so much, and so here is a closeup of the magnets I made using the cover button method.
Dionne's photos are definitely way better than anything I could have taken (thanks Dionne!) and make all my 'stuff' look good! This swap is really what brought Dionne and I together as friends, and I'm really glad that I took part!
I'll be back on Sunday (the 24th) with a new post all about craft and sewing books, and a link to my guest blog over at Rachel's which also includes a giveaway!
