~ Stars ~ Something Blue ~ Your favorite Animal ~ Something Sweet ~ Black & White ~ Something Useful ~ Surprise! (one item per list item -i.e, you couldn't something sweet that was also blue).
So... I made a few things and bought a few things and in my package was...
...a felt star that I made, possibly for use as a pin cushion or as a Christmas tree decoration.
...an original piece of Carrie artwork! (it's blue!)
...some monkey notepaper
...and a bonus monkey finger puppet (made by the wonderful Ian)
...some Cadbury's Dairy Milk
...a cross stitch penguin
...some fabric my swap partner uses to make hair accessories
...and a wind up butterfly that goes inside cards and flies out when you open them (that should be a surprise!).
I posted it all off to my partner today and am now looking for more swaps to sign up to. Hopefully I wont get so obsessed with swapping that I don't make any of the Christmas gift projects I have in mind!
