Thanks Katy!!

Oh my goodness, how exciting. I received my swap all the way from the UK today. I couldn't get it out of Mr Postie's hands quick enough. Katy from i'm a ginger monkey has made some very sweet things - all for me. Katy I love them all and can't stop touching everything. I love the large and mini babushka, sewing pouch with little pockets, ribbons and even a button holder with some lovely buttons. Those ribbons on the dolly peg I've already got ideas how to use them. All of my lovely things came in a beautiful black spotty bag with a cute stamped monkey. How lucky am I! They are all in my favourite colours and I recognise some of the prints from other blogs which I've been dying to order. There is a mikodesign on the little babushka and an auntycookie print on the large babushka. Thank you soooo much Katy, be sure to look out for me in future swaps. Although it is only my first swap I'm already hooked!
How much fun is this blogging business? I'm inspired everyday by wonderful people out there in bloggie land. Previous to blogging I was crafting in obscurity and now it has just opened up a whole new avenue to meet people who share the crafty love. Thank you craftsters one and all and especially my new friend Katy.

lovely swap goodies from Katy, she is a total star... and very very cool in person. Swaps are quite addictive, I love them when not agonizing over if what I make will be good enough.

really I must go finish making my things for my russian doll swap partner... but the coffee maker calls, and I must do its bidding.

Hey Kitty,
To get involved in swaps I just blog-surfed like crazy. Katy at I'm a Ginger Monkey always seems to be having something going on so I'd check her site out. She is super cool as you probably saw by her swap. I'm thinking about having a swap so stay tuned.
