Faith Hope and Charity Shopping Jubilee Swap!

Today's song: Justice Vs Simian- We Are Your Friends

I took part in Lakota's Christmas swap and was delighted when she arranged another one for the Jubilee. I signed up straight away and was paired with lovely Kezzie. I'm afraid I haven't made much of a start on her parcel but mine arrived yesterday morning.

I made sure I did some work and some exercise first and then rewarded myself by opening the exciting parcel.

Huge pile of gifts!

Cute badges. The Jubilee one is handmade, how clever!

A fab dress in Union Jack colours... Just need a sunny day to wear it on now!

It turned out that Kezzie is a teacher which is a good coincidence seeing as I am about to start my teacher training! She very kindly sent me some useful books as well as marking pens and a folder!

Also included was a homemade bath bomb which smells divine but needs to stay in the bubble wrap. All in all this was a fantastic package and I'm a bit nervous about putting mine together now!

And don't be nervous (that said, I was totally nervous so I understand!), I am sure I will love what you send me!

Ah what great choices Kezzie made! I must admit that I haven't even started to pick my gifts for the swap yet! Tut tut.

What a great package! I took part in my first package swap a few months ago, it was so much fun :)

Also good luck on your teacher training! I want to be a teacher but have no clue what path to take as I couldn't do my dissertation in uni and really didn't want to redo the year (terrible course!)

THis is such a cool idea and its great that you got paired up with Kezzie since she is one of my favourite bloggers. The card is gorgeous I am always amazed by what she creates. I love the dress looking forward to seeing you style it.

So cute, love the 'pretty thing' pin - I'd probably end up wearing it on my butt ;)
