I’m done shopping for all the things I wanted to give to Chloe, my swap partner. 😀 It took longer than I thought, but I really hope she’ll like them. Today, I wrapped them all. The wrapping is a bit unimaginative. I recently packed away all my things for my move to Zurich, and I was left with no ribbons. I used paper and stickers that I’m not taking, they were from Christmases of the past.
All 12 items, wrapped. I had a lot of gold wrapping paper, as you can see.
I also found a box that would fit them all, without having to buy one. I’m on a tight budget right now, have to work with what I can find… plus, I get to reuse rather than dump this box in the bin. That’s what it’s all about, isn’t it?
I’ll definitely pad these up before I post. Oh, I’m getting so excited! I have yet to hear from the swop partner that I will receive items from. I might drop her a line and give her my address. 😀
Just wanted to update everyone on my progress for the 12 Days of Christmas Swop. I have already collected 9 of 12 items. They’re not wrapped yet, I have a lot of personal packing to do before the 12th of November. I shall do all my wrapping after that.
I’m super excited and hope the future recipient will like them. So far, I have things like stationery, costume jewellery and fashion accessories, and maybe one item could be classed as a trinket. I was straying towards every item being purple, but I forced myself to include items in other colours. ^^

All you have to do is leave a comment on the first photo, on my shop’s facebook page.
On 5th October, I will use a random number generator to pick a number, which is then matched to the comment. For example, your comment is fourth on the list. If the random number generator returns a 4, you win! Winner will receive both items with complimentary shipping. However, I still recommend getting it registered, for $6. I can’t cover that part, unfortunately!
Good luck to everyone! 😀
