Send A Little Love Swap

I just wanted to apologise for my lack of posts lately especially to those of you that took part in the
Send A Little Love Swap. I did in fact start writing a post around the 14th February but I got way laid and then I had more things to say and show you and less time to write about them!!!

But anyhow I am here now and I hope you all enjoyed the Send A Little Love Swap as much as I did, looking at all your lovely blog posts you all received and sent some wonderful goodies around globe.

I was partnered with the lovely Leonie from Kiwi at Heart and this is what we sent each other.

Leonie sent me this Kete, 
which is a traditional Maori basket woven from flax leaves, 
Leonie added a bright red crocheted heart,

Inside were lots more treats

a red dotty heart handmade card

some delicious jellies which I ate whilst looking at my gifts.

three felt heart handmade and hand stamped love mini cards,

a ceramic heart with the word love stamped in the middle

two reels of washi tape

and some gorgeous red, white and blue heart bunting

and here are my swap goodies all together.

And here is what I send Leonie....

I did a little looking stalking on Leonie's pinterest boards and found that she like aqua, red and white so themed my makes around those three colours. I think I may have gone a little overboard though!!!
I covered some plain white matchboxes in some valentines themed papers that I picked up at Home Sense and filled them with buttons, trim, ribbon and a red rose pendant.

I found some fabulous aqua, red and white fabrics on ebay and make a quilted pincushion and some personalised bunting.

I thought that Leonie might want to make something from the fabrics so I added some pieces too.

 Keeping with the aqua,red and white theme (I told you I had gone overboard!) I found some lovely printables on pinterest and printed them on photo paper.

No love swap parcel would be complete without some LOVEHEARTS sweets and some chocolate.

I also found this little love heart note book in Home Sense (you can never have too many notebooks).

and finally a heart shaped candle.

 Thank you to everyone that took part in the Send a Little Love Swap and a special thank you to Leonie for being such a kind and generous swap partner.
