I've got a very exciting announcement... I've discovered my fellow blogger Sparklegirl is secretly a wizard!! It's the only way Jen could possibly have managed to fit so many goodies into her swap box- haha! I mentioned how excited I was about doing our little post-swap earlier this year, and Jen's Parcel of Awesomeness turned up on my doormat last week!
|Mysterious parcel of wonder|
The swap came about after I discovered the existence of David's Tea; my eyes practically popped out of their sockets when I saw all of the incredible flavours of tea. Then I found out they didn't ship to the UK and was about to give up and have a cry. However, I pulled myself together when I realised it was an awesome opportunity to get to know Jen a little better and share some Christmas cheer via a swap of British and Canadian/US goodies!
Jen was totally up for it (hurrah!) and we spent ages emailing back and forth long lists of confectionery, teas and desserts before settling on some key things we both wanted, and getting some ideas for some added surprise extras. These are some of the wonderful things she sent me.
|Lots of little chocolate bars and some adorable Hello Kitty pocky|
|CANDY CANE HOT CHOCOLATE!! I'm very glad customs didn't bust this parcel open; it looks a bit dodgy, doesn't it!?|
|A handmade purse! You can check out Jen's other makes in her wonderful Etsy shop|
|Lots and lots of David's Tea including Amaretto, Birthday Cake, Cherry Cola, Movie Night and Oh Canada. And a super-cute Christmas card :)|
|I love how teeny the KitKat bar is- I feel like a giant! Adorable :)|
Thank you so much Jen- I had a wonderful time swapping goodies with you!
P.S. I also wrote Jen a Christmas-themed guest blog post earlier this month. You can have a read, and visit Jen's awesome blog, here.
