Trashs Rainbow Swap

A little while back I signed up for Trashs Rainbow Swap.... and then of course, promptly forgot about the entire thing until it was the last week (story of my life it seems).

I was a couple of days late sending mine, but as I was sending it to the UK, it only really made me one day late. I don't think it has arrived yet, and I'm not sure whether the recipient actually reads my blog, so I can't post any photos just in case. I wouldn't like to spoil the surprise.

Of course, I can show you what arrived in my mailbox on Friday. Even after sending my swap package, I then promptly forgot that I would also be receiving a package....deeeerrrrrr. So when opened the mailbox and found a parcel from the UK, I was a little perplexed. I was sure I hadn't been online shopping again, so what could it be?

Imagine my delight to find all of these lovely crafty goodies AND chocolate (Green and Blacks my favoturite)!
Kitty from Kitty's Bloggy Bits sent me all of these lovely craft supplies in all the colours of the rainbow, and if you read my blog, then you'll realise just how much I love colour.

Kitty also included seven sweet little handmade christmas stockings which are going to look so cute on my christmas tree. I think I might fill them up with lollies so my nephews can find them and eat them.
The two boxes of smarties disappeared Friday afternoon when my two eldest nephews came home from school and spotted them on the table.

Thanks so much Kitty!

Great swap! Suits you perfectly! Do you need a hand with the markets this week? May be able to help Thursday night, and will be at Dayelsford on Sat. Look forward to seeing you! You were meant to give me samples, weren't you? We forgot!

What a gorgeous rainbow of colours! Parcels in the postbox is the best; especially if they are a surprise!

Glad it all got there safely and how much fun that it was a surprise!

I fell in love with those lil Christmas stockings when Kitty posted them last week and am so jealous!

LOL. I love that line “I was sure I hadn't been online shopping again, so what could it be?” You really do crack me up. :)

Hello :D So sorry I'm late commenting. I'm glad the parcel got to you safe and sound - you never know whether they will or not, do you? Equally glad your nephews got to taste pukka English Smarties - did they taste different?!

Very pleased you are a bright colour person - it made deciding what to make a bit easier!

Good luck with your Christmas markets. I'm sure you'll do well.

Take care, :-) x
