At the beginning of November, Anna of “in my closet” organised a Christmas exchange with craft supplies. The rules were very simple, all the participants had to transform to secret elves, prepare a parcel with craft supplies and send it to another elf. Then we must try and create something with the supplies we are given.
The parcel must contain: A Christmas card, something edible (sweet), a hand made gift and five different craft supplies that we already have and don’t want anymore.
In my parcel I found a hand made Christmas card and a very sweet note from my secret elf Sofia – Dimitra and her daughter.
A chocolate for me and a great deal of chocolate wafers for my boys (they went nuts). A hand made soap and a house calendar for 2016.
A pouch full of evening primrose seeds (my favourite) and 5 crafts supplies: coffee filters, candy cups, rhinestones, a piece of hello kitty fabric, ice cream sticks and a child’s toothbrush (not in the photo).
First we ate the chocolates! Then I used my supplies.
I dip my coffee filters in watercolour and as soon as they were dry I used them to make paper flowers.
I glued the candy cups together to form a garland.
My seeds are waiting to be planted when spring arrives.
The rest of the supplies are not used. Yet.
My parcel travelled to Thessaloniki and it contained:
- A hand made Christmas card.
- Granola bars.
- A hand made doll.
- Five craft supplies:
- wool felt
- hoop earrings
I’m looking forward to seeing what the recipient will make with her supplies.
I wish you all a wonderful and creative 2016!
