snail mail-box swap

 Hey and happy Monday ☺  Recently I participated in a snail mail-box swap with a few on-line blogging friends.  It was put together by Kellie from Give-a-girl-a-blog and I was lucky to help her out with a few idea's ................................
So last Monday I received some 'happy mail' and just had to share the gorgeous box of goodies I received.
This was sent to me from Tash - Little Bit of Thyme - she has a lovely lifestyle blog and is very crafty ☺
We provided a list of things we love, including colours, smells, hobbies and dis-likes too.  We could use this as our guide to include something hand-made, something to eat + drink, something to use and something to write ....................  lots of fun little themes.

 Tash went to great effort to present each item in such a clever way - each little package was sewn together with pattern paper and vellum and included a bible text - really meaningful ☺
 There was lots of my favourite colour - teal!!  Isn't this bead necklace just gorgeous.
 It all looks so pretty, that I haven't even opened all the packages!!
Thank you Tash for a very thoughtful and gorgeous package.  My first snail mail-box swap was heaps of fun and I would love to do it again.  It's so nice to receive special things in the mail box from crafty girls!

I posted off my box last week, so hopefully the recipient gets it soon ☺

Creating with love + happiness ♥

Ah what a stunning idea and I love the way it was all packaged... I think if we tried to do that here in SA all of the stuff from inside would be gone :o
Lucky lady you are Chantelle... Gorgeous stuff.
