Stationery swap

It seems like months ago that I entered into the stationery swap over at Sprouting Creative Wings and Lisa sent me my swap partner details. My swap partner was Emma Elliott who also lives in Kent bubsiekins.blogspot.co.uk and I received my parcel last week just in time for my birthday. Thank you Emma for my lovely stationery parcels and for choosing things that I would have chosen myself it was lovely receiving happy post at work. There were two parcels inside my envelope (you can see the pretty wrapping in the first picture) and they contained so many lovely stationery things that I would have chosen myself.

I just hope the things I've chosen for Emma are a nice surprise as mine were for me. It was a difficult task that I thought would be a doddle when I entered, but it was great fun finding lots of different things and looking in every possible stationery shop all over Kent. It's a great idea and a good way to meet new bloggers and get to know them a little.

Don't forget my May giveaway ends this weekend so if you haven't entered there is still time.

before opening
wow look at all those lovely things

I have some exiting news (other than Press day at Chelsea Flower show last week) and its about product testing for Sophie Conran garden range (Burgon & Ball). Honestly I couldn't believe it myself. Over the weekend I will test out the lovely said item and will update you. Amanda x
