SwapTastic !

My swap buddy has made me feel rather tardy and a bit of a novice. Her parcel arrived today and the attention to detail was awsome. Themed paper, card and sticky doobries! Now where would one get such doobries I wonder?

I share a blow by blow account in pictures of the lovliness of my parcel and send thanks to Jacq for her careful selection of treasures.

I already have assigned some of the notions to a project I’m about to start and will share when complete …. am hoping I can start a whole new movement in pinnies! What a great word PINNY … where do such gems of words come from?

Mmmm sounding a bit like a Police Officer now with all the questions …. note to self …find answers yourself, don’t be expecting others to fill in the many gaps in my head :0)

    Hi Samantha, I’m really glad you liked your parcel šŸ™‚ I’m sure the parcel you’ve put together will be brilliant. I have a stash of the themed paper (how could I not buy it?). I love making the sewing themed cards – I used to make a lot of cards and for some reason was attracted to haberdashery themed items! And the tape is washi tape – isn’t it fab? I have one precious role I bought in Japan – I use it sparingly, only special people get some. My brother goes to Tokyo on business sometimes – he has strict instructions to get me some more if he can find it!:)

    Washi Tape, Wishi I had some ….. will have to search the old www now, very groovy. Does he bring you back lush fabrics and buttons etc? x

    I’ve had a quick look and you can buy it in the UK – it’s more expensive but cheaper than a flight to Japan! My brother doesn’t tend to buy me craft related things – he’s colour blind and entirely clueless about fabrics and notions. He’s very generous but sticks to Star Wars stuff! However, he did bring me some glorious silks from India about 5 years ago – they are so beautiful I haven’t plucked up the courage to cut into them šŸ™‚

      OOOO do it Jacq, cut into them. Make a beautiful kimono style dressing gown or a spectacular blouse. Beautiful fabrics are made to be on beautiful people. Go on DARE YOU! xx
