Our 2nd No Fuss Swap....


Are you ready for the next swap????

This is all about fun, no stress, hassle or fuss involved!!!

Sadly our swaps are Australia only (owing to expensive postage) and you do need to have your own blog.

The Stuff-A-Tin-Challenge....

Grab yourself a little tin....no bigger than 4 inches square.

There are lots to choose from and it can be any shape - just remember no bigger than 4"!!!! 
Inside you choose what to fill it up with. Some ideas can be ....
Buttons and/or charms
Skein of thread
Sewing notion (eg scissors,quick unpick)
1m of ribbon or ric rac
And a treat ... This can be lollies or small chocolate (like a Freddo frog). It just has to fit in the tin. 

The choices are up to you, but try and fill your tin with as much as you can. 
Then wrap your tin in a fat quarter of fabric - this will protect your tin in the mail and will give your partner another swap surprise. Remember .... Strictly no extras!!! 
So how about it? Nice and easy and a little bit of a challenge as well. 
Sign up here by leaving a comment before Tuesday 22nd March. Opening day is 3rd May - just before Mother's Day. 
Sorry we have to keep this swap to the Aussie ladies only. Unfortunately the costs to post overseas force us to do this. 
Helen, Sandi, Teresa and Norreen.

Are You Ready?

Hello Gorgeous Girls,
It's time to start thinking of sending our gifts off to our partners. I have mine all wrapped and ready to send so hopefully the postie will deliver very soon.
How are you all going?  
We are going to make opening day/night Friday the 18th March, so please make sure your parcels arrive before then..
It would be fantastic if everyone could drop us a short line or two when parcels have been posted and when they have arrived and a photo of your pretty pressies would be great too so we can put it on the blog.   Hope you are all having fun and we cant wait to see what everyone has come up with..
Thanks girls,
Sandi, Teresa, Helen & Norreen
