Exactly one year ago today I shared my Goody Goody Gift Swap experience – well it’s that time again! After a successful gift swap in 2014, I was excited to take part again because it’s just great fun. If you don’t know what I’m talking about… Goody Goody Gift Swap is an international swap which happens around Christmas time. You are paired up with a swap mate, given a bit of information about each other and then make or buy a gift for them. Lovely jubbly!
This year I was paired with Katie who liked cats, sewing and teal. I decided that I wanted to make something sewing related, and found a tutorial by Lu Loves Handmade on how to make a cat shaped needle case. Purrrrfect 😉
I also bought a teal candle, Kilner mug, pegs and a star shaped Lush bath bomb. (But forgot to post the lip balm… sorry Katie!) If you’re keen to watch the making of the cat needle case, watch Vlogmas Day 16 here:
After Instagramming the hell out of it, I popped it to the post office and it was on it’s way to Katie. Just a couple of days later my gift from Katie arrived:
WWJD… What would Jesus drink? 😉 I carefully unwrapped my gifts to find a bracelet kit, a Lucie Ellen brooch and a star shaped Lush bath bomb (the same one that I had bought Katie actually! ha). I’ve already used the bath bomb and I absolutely love the brooch – I came across Lucie Ellen at Renegade Craft Fair last month and all of her things are so nice!

Thanks to Katie for being my swap mate and also to Jenna who runs the swap. Yet again, another successful Goody Goody Gift Swap!
