Halloween Craft Swap

I have taken part in my very first Craft Swap and it's the big reveal tonight, can you guess the theme? Yes, it's Halloween. The swap has been organised by the lovely Kat over at With-u-in-Mind.

I received my parcel in plenty of time and was so tempted to open it but keeping to the rules I put it to one side and practised patience.

So tonight's the night and I got my chance to open my parcel, I knew it was from Osk & Oly (because it was written on the back of the package) but I don't know who Osk & Oly are so I really don't know what to expect, so here goes......

My Halloween Swap Parcel
Wow, this looks an interesting selection, let's have a closer look......

 I love this wreath, everything about it is perfect, the 'roses' are great and the ribbon sets it off lovely.

  The pin cushion is lovely, it's a great choice of fabrics and the centre is a real twig.

The jar of sweeties is great, don't you just love that label. That will certainly be opened this evening.

Halloween Bon Bons

What a great selection of items, I feel so lucky with this swap and I'd like to say a big Thank You to Osk & Oly for sending such brilliant items and a huge Thank You to Kat for organising the swap, especially as throughout the last few months she has been moving house.

I hope you have all had as great a swap as I have.

P.S... I now know that Osk & Oly is Penny over at Osk and, 
So once again, a big thank you to Penny x

  2. Hi Jan,
    I'm so glad you loved everything, I thoroughly enjoyed making it all. The fabric I used (except the orange one) is all printed by me so is one of a kind fabric! And I loved the wreath too it was tough to say goodbye to it! I thought I'd better add the little note onto the bonbons so as not to look like I was actually sending you some Arsenic! Hope you had a good Halloween.
