Folksy Christmas Swap

Hi everyone I don't know about you but I'm busy busy busy at the moment, what with crafting for swaps, Christmas shopping and everything else us ladies have to fit into the day time is short and Christmas is rapidly getting closer!!!! I'm not in panic mode yet but give me a few weeks......
Talking of swaps I recently ventured onto the Folksy forums, I do find they move rather fast but I did find a post all about saving on the cost of Christmas by swapping!!! Well the lovely Nicola from Off The Hook contacted me asking if I could make a pink fairy apron for a 2 year old, so I popped over to her shop and took a peek and in exchange for an apron I received three gorgeous make up remover pads, a beautiful purple cross bookmark and Nicola even added as an extra a red Gecko bookmark which as it happens is now my favourite. All of these items are beautifully made and are going to make wonderful presents, so thank you Nicola.
Here's the apron that I made, I took this photograph before I added some pink glitter ric rac to the front and poppers to the neck strap so that it was adjustable. I hope Nicola likes it.......

This is a great way to keep the cost of Christmas down so if anyone else fancies swapping then just let me know or pop along to the forum post on Folksy.
