Blogtoberfest - Day 2 - DUST Team Craft Swaps

Welcome lovely Maddabling readers to Blogtoberfest12 - Day 2. 

Today I want to share with you a recent craft swap that I undertook with Anne of LaughLand

One of my responsibilities as a DUST Team Admin, is that I co-ordinate a regular craft swap. It's a lot of fun and gives people an opportunity to share the handmade love. Below, you will see some pictures of what we swapped :) 

I sent Anne some gorgeous earrings made with circa 1960's Glass Rhinestones, some hand cut gift tags and two bath tea bags - suitable either for the bath or as a foot soak. 
Anne sent me two gorgeous big shopping bags, a beautiful card and a big zippered pouch suitable as a pencil case or any sort of general stash bag - it will be great to keep my ribbons and string in ! Thanks for stopping by to read my blog, see you all tomorrow for Blogtoberfest12 Day 3 - Wednesday Wishes xo
