Handmade Decoration Swap Goodies

These are the lovely goodies I received from Debbie at Love from Poppy when I took part in the Handmade Christmas Decoration Swop organised by Lynda at hookin with laalaa
Debbie sent me one of her handmade box cards

It has four drawers underneath and she had put some choc santas in each drawer, yum

She very kindly made me two baubles for my tree

Want to see them a bit closer..........

they look like they will sparkle in the light on my tree :)

In the parcel were these choc moulds and Debbie also came up with the idea of using these as moulds for wax tarts.  I may have to keep a few for each, now just to decide which will be turned into chocs and which to same for my waxy goodness

This book is fab, there are loads of varied ideas in it.  I'm off shopping tomorrow to get some items for one of the recipes tomorrow for a gift for a friends birthday.  Will post pics when I have all the bits and let you know how I get on with any other recipes

I've not started my Christmas cards yet so these vintage stickers will come in very handy

You can't have a Christmas tree without candy's the rules!!

I have kept both the gingerbread man and the little bear in their wrappers as I don't want them to get ruinedbefore I get chance to put them on the tree

I did take a picture of all the goodies wrapped when they first arrived and you can see them in this post.  Debbie had decorated the presents with these cute hearts that I have saved and hope to use in my crafts at some point

As you can see, I am one very lucky lady and am so pleased I was paired up with Debbie, she has great taste and is very gifted with her crafting. 
Thank you Debbie :) and also a big thank you to Lynda for organising the swop 
Oh I almost forgot.....she did send me a tube of dairy milk chocs, but these have already been enjoyed by me and J ooops!!
