Christmas swaps…

I once belonged to a group called ‘Happy Mail’ where participants gave up a little time to write letters or send small gifts to one another. It was great fun, but after a year of two the site folded. It was so lovely to send a small gift and make a new friend. But now, thanks to Johanna of  littleblackdogsa , I have now signed up for a sewingsanta which has been organized by Sheila at sewchet – really looking forward to finding out who I will be sending to, and am already starting to make a little handmade something to send in the parcel!

My name is Deborah, and my earliest recollection of being creative is learning how to smock at primary school.

It is so great that you joined. 🙂 I do enjoy swaps, as you get to receive the gift, but the best is, you make a new friend, from another part of the world, and you get to experience what they experience. I made a new friend last year and we are still in touch. She is an extremely talented artist and I learn from her all the time.
    Have fun. 🙂
