Crafty Christmas Swap

I’ve been talking about the Paper and String decoration swap over on my crafty Facebook page for a while now. I returned from a week’s holiday to find a parcel containing my swaps waiting for me! (Which totally helped to shake my post-holiday-goodbye-sun-hello-autumn blues!)

But as there’s very little overlap between my Facebook likers (pretty small) and my blog readership (even smaller!) I’ll give you a quick reminder of the decorations I made for the swap before showing you what I received:

I’m pleased with all 3 of them but I think the pudding is probably my favourite! 🙂 there are much more professional photos of them on the Paper and String Facebook page here. You can also see all of the other decorations submitted for swapping here.
So, as you can imagine – I was excited to meet my new Christmas tree buddies…

My daughter has a bit of a tie obsession at the moment (she’s 4 and wants a monocle and a top hat!) so she’ll love the last one by LoveHappyApple! 🙂 I think they’re all gorgeous! 🙂

I’m feeling super festive now… Is it too early to put up the tree?! 🙂
