Cracker Swap

My cracker swap arrived this morning from Debs over at Busy Little Chicken, I do love packages in the post especially ones filled with goodies!!!

Here is my super stripey fabric covered cracker with an extra gift that obviously wouldn't fit in the cracker but more about that later

the fabric was tied with embroidery thread 

A lovely handmade card

 The bigger present turned out to be a notebook but I can't show you as I took a terrible photo of it, and wrapped around the cracker was this bright and cheery notebook cover. Now Debs must know me pretty well as I definitely need a book to write things to remember in! I can't decide whether it's an age thing but my memory is just terrible! No excuses now with a fab new notebook.

How cute is this label?

Also hidden under the fabric of the cracker was this lovely bookmark taken from a page of Wind in the Willows, no more turning over the corner of the page for me!

And a dinky knitted stocking

If that lot wasn't enough I found this lot crammed/stuffed/wedged inside the cardboard tube

two deliciously smelly tea lights

some decadant braid

a glittery fairy

some delicious chocolate which as is normal with a swap parcel was eaten whilst enjoying opening my goodies, although I was good and shared two of the snowmen with Tomas.

One of my favourite things (little things please me!!!) were these little bells with heart shaped ringers. I have an idea for these in February.

and finally some red, white and blue buttons and beads

It's amazing why you can get inside a cardboard tube isn't!!
Here are all my wonderful goodies together.

Debs will hopefully be getting her cracker from me very shortly, thanks for being a brilliant swap partner Debs and thank you to everyone for taking part and sharing, don't forget about the flickr group too.
