"Oh Hello Friend" Package Swap 2012.

This month I participated in the Wonderful Package Swap from the lovely Danni over at "Oh Hello Friend" - I was a little hesitant to sign up as I never recieved my package from the "Send Something Good" project a few months ago. (I've tried not to Whinge & Complain! but after no contact from my partner - even after numerous polite emails.. I just don't think it's good manners to sign up & not see something through! Ugh.. Rant over :]) but I just could not resist - I adore Danni's Blog & so just had to sign up! So here is What I sent to my Lovely Partner Lea from "We Like to make Stuff"
P.S - being super silly I forgot to photograph what I include.. Hopefully Lea will have some photos up soon! Lea Has some photos up now! click to see them!

Excuse the language but I think it's more than appropriate! - here is the amazing package I recieved from the lovely Lea <3

The Elevated Envelope

This Summer (Winter for me!) I had the Absolute Pleasure of Participating in "The Elevated Envelope Project" created by the incredible Tara Bilven.. If you're into Mail Art, Letters or just Pretty things in general I highly reccommend popping over to her blog & taking part in the next Project!

The Summer 2012 Theme was "Sweet" & after Umming & Ahhing for a few weeks I decided to take it as literal as possible - Candy! With a couple of bright candy wrappers, some glittery paper & Some Super Sweet Song Lyrics (Candy Girl - The Archies ++ Lollipop - Mika) I created these super bright - Sparkly Envelopes (with a few sweet surprises inside!)
