My first exchange - COMPLETE

I am so very excited. My first EVER exchange has just been completed. Door closed, is no more. Kinda sad in a way but omg was it such fun! Even if I have spent the last 2 months stressing about where my package was and feeling so guilty that I got Heathers package so soon but I had sent hers so slow!!!

I sent Heather the compulsory bookmark (starfish by Cupcake at Crochetville) and a book. Also included were 2 postcards, 1 Australian flag patch, 1 sheet of stickers, 1 novelty boomerang with Australian Aboriginal designs, 1 crochet needle case, 1 tin of Billy Tea, 1 Lovatts Arrowords pockey book, a small bag of polished gemstones and a brochure about my town. It feels as though there wasn't much at all in there but Heather sounds over the moon and that's all I care about! I was certainly overwhelmed with her package!! I love the Great Bookmark Exchange, mostly as I can now participate as I please and there is nothing exceedingly hard about it.

Heather sent us a book, TWO bookmarks (I love the turtle!!), a pin cushion, a bookmark from her trip to Norway she took just as our exchange began, an original "Heather" design trinket box combining cross stitch and crochet AND recycling, a cradle purse with the sweetest doll inside, a tooth keeper for when Jess starts needing one, a cute handbag for Jessi a lovely letter and a magazine which has a design Heather submitted inside. I, yes ME, got to exchange with someone who has published works! That's pretty cool in my book. Oh, I almost forgot, there are 3 pins inside the trinket box! One for British Columbia, one for Heather's town and one for the Winter Olympics in Canada in a few years time. What lovely keepsakes these will become.

Now, to finish off my Holiday Gift Exchange!!
