Giveaway Reminder and Gorgeous Swap Goodies!

Firstly, just a reminder that my giveaway closes at midnight tonight. If you haven't entered all ready then head over to this post and leave a comment post haste! I will announce the winners tomorrow.

Now, onto the loveliness! A while ago the lovely Lori from Hippywitch crafts and I agreed to have a swap. It started when I asked if anyone wanted to have a swap from some of my fused glass goodies and went from there and this week I received a lovely package of goodies from her - so exciting! I told Lori I liked the sea and snorkelling and diving and look at these lovely amigurumi sea creatures she sent me:

I LOVE them - so cute. And such happy colours - really brightened up my dull Thursday afternoon! And if that wasn't enough (and it totally was!) Lori also included this beautiful cross stitch ornament in some of my favourite colours:

And this fab cow cross stitch card:

I told Lori that I seem to have been given a lot of cow things in the past (I try not to read too much into this!!) so it is very appropriate for me! Thank you so much for the goodies Lori - I love them so much! If you fancy seeing more loveliness like this then I suggest you pop over to Lori's blog or etsy shop!

I know Lori has received her package from me so I can show you what I sent her too. Firstly a couple of glass necklaces:

A cute little amigurumi cat (Lori told me she is a mad cat lady!):

A plush strawberry ornament / pin cushion:

And finally a little crochet bag in some of Lori's favourite colours to keep her necklaces safe:

I really enjoyed doing a swap and am definitely planning to do lots more in future! I hope you are all having a lovely weekend - staying warm and doing lots of crafting. I will be back tomorrow to announce the giveaway results.

Yay, there's all my fab stuff! Thanks so much for a gorgeous swap :-) I've just posted them on my blog and I pinched your pics of the things you made me as mine were rubbish, the weather has been so dark here, hope you don't mind! :-)
Have a lovely weekend,
Lori xxx

Oh wow!! Amazing goodies! Lori has made some beautiful things and I love your parcel for her- the strawberry is brilliant, the cat is very cute, and a lovely little bag for those *gorgeous* necklaces!!! If you ever want to swop any of your glass again, I'd love to, I think it's all stunning! Hope you're having a good weekend. I have my fingers crossed for your giveaway!! Laura x

What a wonderful friend you've found! Love the items you each sent to the other -- I've always been especially fond of your strawberries. They make me smile.
