Nappy cake

something a bit different today...
a nappy cake!
My niece is due to have her first baby in January.
She is having her baby shower on Sunday,

96 nappies and lots of essential bits and pieces
all topped off with a cute pink teddy :o)

Parcel post on a SUNDAY?

Well, hubby went off to the local store today and 2 mins later
the door bells rings...what's he forgotten? I thought,
so I went and answered the door to find a parcel post
van leaving the driveway...what the? then I look down and
see a parcel...for me Yay!!!!
We have never had anything delivered on a sunday, I didn't know
that they worked on weekends, or is it only because Christmas
is fastly aproaching?
Anyway, it was my swap gifts from Shez from
Tilda Christmas swap, Woohoo!

5 awesome looking gifts, all waiting to be unwrapped!
So I started with the smaller gift (great things always come
in small packages!) and I got 2 lots of christmas
ribbon. the second gift had lots of yumminess
in the form of a christmas stocking.

next parcel, this gorgeous Pyjama Snowman,
Shez has done an awesome job on him, he is so sweet!
He can hang on the wall, but I thought he looked more
comfy sitting down :o)
I absolutely love his carrot nose!

the next parcel had these gorgeous handmade Tilda Baubles

these are going to look stunning on my tree, I am aiming to have
lots and lots of handmade ornaments on there this year,
so these are just perfect!

and the 5th parcel, 2 sets of flower lights, these are so pretty
in real life, I will definately get some use out of these, I will just
need to keep them away from my daughter, she already has
her eyes on them lol!

and here they all are together

I absolutely love everything, thanks so much Shez, you have
been a fantastic swap partner!
Thanks again to Cat from Catina's Cottage
for hosting this swap.

Tilda Christmas swap

Hi everyone
I joined a Christmas themed Tilda swap over at
Catalina's Cottage after having so much fun during
her Tea Party swap some time ago.
I was paired up with the talented Shez
from Enjoying Life which I was really happy about
as I think we have simular tastes.

Anyway the idea of this swap was to send

- A Handmade Tilda Christmas Decoration
- Christmas haberdashery items
- An edible gift
- Anything else related to your partners likes.

so for the handmade items,  I decided to make a couple of
things, I got patterns from these Tone Finnanger books...
Sew Pretty Christmas Homestyle
Crafting Christmas Gifts

Pixie girl



and for the haberdashery items...
some fabric, 3 spools or ribbon and some ''christmas
potpourri''  buttons.
Shez said she like milk chocolate with flavoured
centres, so hopefully she will like a bar of cadbury
snack chocolate (had to behave with that in the house lol),
and ofcourse, as its is a christmas theme, I had to throw
in some candy canes!
Also, just for fun I added some christmas cards,
some wine/drink glass charms and
some curling ribbons and bows

hope you like your gifts Shez I had lots of fun putting these
gifts together! Thanks too to Cat for organising this
awesome swap!

Thanks for stopping by
Happy Crafting!
