Okay so I've given myself a kick up the proverbial no more moping around waiting for Spring, I'm just going to have to accept this dreary old cold weather pull on another jumper and get on with it!!!
Mmmm as you can tell by my absence and my opening sentence the last few weeks have been a bit Bleurghhh!!! But now I'm ready to get back into crafting, blogging and my photography.
I have been lurking in the background, reading all your wonderful posts and even commenting on some but just haven't felt like writing anything myself and then I found the longer I left it the harder it became to write anything, now I don't want this post to be all dreary like the weather so I'm not going to dwell on what I haven't done but I do need to ask you a question about swap etiquette.....
We all love taking part in swaps and I am always amazed at the generosity and talents of my swap partners and we all agree how lovely it is to receive a beautifully wrapped parcel in the post.....
Is it okay to pass on something that you have received as a swap gift onto someone else who you know would love it even more than you do?
I'm not talking about passing something handmade off as your own or doing the aged auntie thing of giving back the present you received last year but how would you feel if you saw one of the smaller gifts that you had given to someone as part of swap being received by someone else as part of their swap parcel.
Would you be offended or would you think of it as recycling????
I'd love to know what you all think about this so please feel free to leave a comment.
This passing on of gifts has reminded me of a comment made to me once by a friend in the school playground (not known for her tact or diplomacy!!!)
"I've a really ugly brooch at home I think would suit you" ????? it was a good job I knew her!!!
