sleepover swap

I signed up for A Thrifty Mrs's Sleepover Swap, ooh ages ago....and this week both received and sent out my swap parcel.
Caroline was my swap partner (who very kindly agreed to my request to delay our sending after the deadline had passed as I was swamped!!), and on my return from yet another weekend away (this time a family wedding in the north) my neighbour handed me a lovely box with my name on :)
I am afraid that much to A's disgust I had to open there and then, leaving the unpacking to him...
Knowing of my love for our friend Cath, Caroline has made me a sleep mask and lavender filled mouse in one of my favourite, much coveted CK prints.......

More CK lovelyness with some hand cream, along with a nail file and gorgeous nail polish.

A lovely mug full of yummy hot choc and..........
very appropriate sweeties lol!!!
Next to be opened was this beautiful candle holder.....destined for my bathroom when its decorated.....currently in our bedroom......I love this Enid Blyton book, I have had no luck lately in my hunt for EB books so opening this one was a gasp out loud happy moment :), I have a sweet strawberry bookmark too.

I can make us all some delicious muffins.....
with my new book and ice cream coloured cases :)
Thank You so much Caroline for a fab fab swap parcel, I have loved everything :0
Caroline has blogged here about her parcel...but here are a few pics of what I made for her. I had an inspiration block but finally decided on what to make.
So great minds think alike and I made a sleep mask, with a matching reversible headband..
After a few false starts and crafting disasters I made a couple of padded hangers....


This was my take on a dream catcher/ mobile/hangy thingy :)
And a bag (yes 'that' pattern again hehehe!!!) made in an Ikea print
Thanks Thrifty one for hosting a great swap, looking forward to the next one lol!!!!
