Swaps - how I love them!

I joined another swap over at Lawendula and this time it was a paperback swap where we had to send a paperback of our choice to someone else.  My swap partner was Sue in Australia and I realised that I had never, in all my years of trotting to the post office and back, sent anything to anyone in Australia!!  We could choose to send other things if we liked but that was not obligatory. Well just look at the parcel I received from Sue!  It was SO exciting.

There were so many lovely things inside the parcel, all beautifully wrapped

and there was a delightful letter telling me all about the paperback she had sent.

napkins, gorgeous paper samples, emphemera and a beautiful 'junk journal' that Sue had made herself which it seems I failed to capture in any of these photos which I can hardly believe now.  It will have its own showing tomorrow, I promise.  Thank you Sue so much.

I didn't manage to take any photos of the parcel I sent (just haven't got it quite together yet!!) but I sent a paperback "Miss Pettigrew lives for a day" and a collage canvas I made especially for Sue.  The whole thing was just great fun.

Oh, what fun! Swaps are terrific... And what a fantastic stash of goodies you received from Sue! LOVE all those papers...*swoon*... I looked up the book on Amazon, sound a good read. Thanks for stopping by my place, Sheila. I've been slowing making the rounds since back from our trip--slow getting the mojo back, but getting there. ;o) Happy Days ((HUGS))
