I have a tendency to get in trouble with swaps. The fear of my partner not liking what I make literrally freezes me up until the last minute. Then it’s a mad rush.
This time it was different. I knew what I wanted to do, but my paycheck was late, so I completely missed the deadline. But it’s been wrapped, boxed and shipped as of last night! Go me! Only what… 8 days late?
Back Tack 4 was a lot of fun and I enjoyed the openess of the central theme: Gold Frankincense and Myrrh
This time there are no colour, size, or material restrictions, all we ask is that you take the theme and run with it, and make 3 items according to the individual outlines below.
The first item is something that sparkles [the Gold part]- cards, decorations, calenders.….see where your imagination will take you. [It doesn’t need to be gold]
The second item is something which has some sort of sensory aspect to it [the Frankincense part] — either smell or taste. Baked goods? Shortbread? Chocolate, soaps, the mind can run free here, but be mindful of customs regulations in different countries. Sealed food stuffs are generally ok, but check with your partner before sending anything.
The third item is a small gift for your partner for Christmas [the Myrrh part] Perhaps a small item for the tree, or mantlepiece. Quiz your partner to see what their theming is for this Christmas, and tie in your gift! or make them something they might like to use through the year — a calender, a purse, a scarf.
Here’s a sneak peak. When my partner gets her package I’ll post more photos.
In the meantime, check out the Kleas.. Lots of gorgeous goodies! And my partner, Kristin’s, beautiful blog:
