My gorgeous Twinchies arrived with the postman at lunchtime. They are super. I got:
C Dawn
A Karelyn
N Steph
N Jo
Y Kim

C Maria
R Nona
A Karin
F Gillian
T Cb
E Lorraine
R Goaty

All lovely and hard to choose which I like best, although I think probably Nona takes the prize!

Thank you again Lorraine for organising this lovely swap.

It has been a fabby swap. Still playing with a couple of ideas on how to use them,
and have pretty well made up my mind, but please bare with me, as I need to get
someone to take me out to buy something.

I was so pleased with my selection. Lucky me got 2 of Pattys - both totally
different.
C Nona's fabulous metallic C - I think my favourite.
A Patty's pink with buttons.
N Dawn - love the N - very special
N Suzy with a lovely Goaty stamp on the back
Y Lorraine - love the Y - a whole set of these would be stunning

C Maria - think enamelled - really nice
R Karin - lovely colours- love this one
A Joy - with topaz gem
F Patty's second one -gorgeous.Love both of them
T KT (surprise there's a dragonfly) another gorggeous one
E Jo's giraffe one. Shame this set had to be split - they are great.
R Kim - one of my favs - nice piece of work.

Thanks Lorraine for running the swap. An unusual idea and it paid off.
Thanks to everyone who took part.

You are so not going to beleive this Lorraine........

spoke to Twiz and the twinchies have arrived.... know what Im going to say yet???

Peeing Laughing
yep, they havent franked it again!!! Twiz cant see anything different about the envelope and neither could I but he says it definitely hasnt been franked. So, another postage free swap for me then... i reckon the mail people realise the importance and realise that there NEEDS to be free psotage between you and I.

Im gonna be gutted when they do frank it.

Well a note came through my door saying there is an item waiting which didn't have enough postage... So fingers crossed!

However if it is my twinchies, I'm pretty sure they had the same postage going there as they did coming back, the envelope wasn't any bigger and def. not any heavier, so Thinking

Ahhh, now then. IF I remember correctly, Kate I don't think there was enough postage, but they didn't charge me this time so I forgot to mention it. I'm not sure mind, but something seems to ring a bell.

It may have all been same envie etc KT, but the twinches comeing back to you only need to be a couple of grams each heavier and it will add up. Fingers crossed its them though.


I haven 't done my LO yet, but I have it in mind what I am going to do, after I've got this week and saturday out of the way I am going to get them done. xxx

Aww, what a delicious package to come home to..... now that would put a smile on anyones face! Ive got a really smashing set, all my fave ones... when I saw mums I kept thinking 'aww, i hope ive got one of Dawns/Lorraines/Stephs and that i would die if I didnt have one of Jos.

well I HAVE got all those and more - all of them they are all wonderful and will make a smashing project.... ive got something in mind but its going to be next week before I can start it.

ive even got the letter R done by my own lovely mum and thats a treat cos I dont usually get her work but Canny Crafters is something we enjoy together so thank you

Cooked breakfasts as well? Good heavens, I'd be putting more than 2lb on if I had one of those every morning for a week!
