Lou was super generous and really kept to this swaps theme of Autumn and Halloween - she sent me some yummy Green & Blacks chocolate, assorted Halloween sweeties (love the Cadbury's spiders!), foxy stickers, an Autumn Garden colouring book, pens for the colouring, a dapper fox postcard, and two gorgeous crocheted goodies - a pumpkin and a conker! Lou runs Yarntistry, so go and check out her Facebook page!
I unfortunately couldn't take more pictures of the unpacking process because I needed to pack for Scotland, but despite the lack of photos, I am sooo grateful for my parcel - thanks Lou!
I can, on this occasion, show you the parcel that I sent to my designated partner, Emma. I don't usually take photos of what I am sending out but Emma posted a lovely picture to the group page so I thought I'd show you all my attempt at Autumn/Halloween!

I read in a thread that Emma's favourite colours were teal and purple, so I hunted down a dreamcatcher for her (bought this one in Swanage whilst I was working there). I also included a stick of rock that I bought on my work travels, and a few postcards. Keeping to theme, I threw in some Halloween candies, a blow up skeleton, an army of spiders (who were hidden amongst the tissue paper that I packed this all in!), an Autumnal fox mug, owly treats, a fairy pen (just coz she was cute) and a pile of chocolate; Emma's favourite treat. The only completely random item was the green jelly drink (next to the mug) which I purchased at my local Chinese supermarket just because it looked cool - I have no idea what it was like haha!
Looking forward to the Christmas swap, coming up in November!!
