Swappers and Stash Lovers

..a bit of an update. We're heading towards the end of the month. Again! So that means the deadline for getting those swaps in the post is fast approaching. A gentle nudge, then, to anyone heading towards the Post Office. But only a very gentle one: it sounds as if many of the swaps are successfully completed, or in transit. Thank you so much for your enthusiasm and your generosity.

There are some wonderful photos of parcels of Very Small Things popping up on blogs all over the world. If you like a bit of stash admiring (and who doesn't?) you could stop by and enjoy

- Cate's big mail day

- or drool over S's photos of her gorgeous collection from Jennifer

- or admire Gail's treasure trove from Becky

- or smile over Jo's Turtle Time: straight from Deb Turtle, of course

- or coo over Sandra's selection of lovelies from Abi

and that's from the first group. From the second I've spotted

- Ladkyis's delight at the extra special packages she received from Helena

- Barbara's bumper parcel from Cheri

- Heather's haul, in such a cool envelope, all the way from Rinda in California

- Deb's delight in her package from Ifa. It even brought on a story!

- Lizzie's coordinated cache from Jane

- Jacky's filled to the brim parcel from Barbara

..and my own lovely parcel which came all the way from Jo in Australia. I love how she included the flag: very clever!

I'm hoping I haven't left anyone out here. You are very welcome to let me know if I have and I'll put it right when I do a final round up. No pressure to post photos, though, if that's not your thing. Just enjoy! We really have gone - around the world in sixty swaps. Thanks everyone!

And thanks to you for such a great idea.

Louise said...

After seeing all the loveliness out there I am looking forward to receiving mine! Such a great idea Sian...thank you x

Sheena said...

I posted my parcel off to Canada today & now really look forward to receiving mine :)

Unknown said...

It was such a great idea that you had! I really enjoyed sending off my little envelope. Hopefully our postal service haven't misplaced mine and it gets here soon ... they have a habit of neglecting international mail!

Estelle @ Cosy/Chic said...

Thanks again for organizing Sian! I received my lovely things yesterday and sent off to my recipient last week. Will be doing a blog post soon.

Hugs, Estelle xx

Barbara Eads said...

This was such a fun idea---you seem to have plenty of them. I can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve for us next!

Fiona@Staring at the Sea said...

I blogged my little parcel of goodness today. It was lots of fun, thank you Sian x

Deb @ PaperTurtle said...

Such a fun little round up, Sian. The swap was such a great idea, and I am excited to see what Lisa-Jane has coming my way. :o) I will definitely post a photo and let you know when I blog about it.

Have a lovely weekend! xo

Ladkyis said...

Alison has received her package from me but she hasn't blogged it yet

Sian said...

It's great to hear all the swap news! There is no need to blog your parcel if you don't want to. Sometimes I feel a bit funny about "showing things off"'s totally up to you individually

Alison said...

i'm just about to write my post...and I've even got Cheri's ready to go-at last...sorry for the tardiness!
Alison xx

So glad your inspired thinking has been such a success, Sian!

JO SOWERBY said...

I am loving seeing all the swap results myself and am naughty as mine still needs posting. I do have a good excuse though, it was post or gas. Will that do?

Sandie said...

It's lovely to see all the swaps... I did post about mine here:

Melissa said...

I've noticed lots of photos, too, and received a lovely package from Jacky last week! I've already used a few pieces from it while I was scrapping with a friend just yesterday! :>)

Lisa-Jane said...

This has been such a wonderful idea Sian, thank you! I shall be blogging my parcel in the next few days :-))

Nathalie said...

Oooh, it is so much fun to look at all these photos! I have sent and received, now I feel inspired to share photos too... soon!
Thanks Sian!

debs14 said...

Such a fun thing to do, thank you for organising it. So, to echo Barnara - what's next?

Lizzie said...

Hi Sian, This has been such fun - thank you so much for organising it!

BTW Jane (who sent me my parcel) has also received hers from Debs14 - link to her blog post about it:

And I had a note from Jean, to say her package from me had arrived safely.

It's all come together amazingly well.

And I'm busy thinking of projects that need the various bits of loveliness that arrived in my great little parcel!

Thanks Sian!

Sandra said...

Look how many people you've made happy with your great idea xxx

Miriam said...

Sian, She of the Brilliant Ideas!

Becky said...

I've taken a photo of all my lovely stash from Sandie but not had a chance to post it yet! Will let you know when I do :-)

Maria Ontiveros said...

Just picked mine up at the post office yesterday. It will be on my blog on Thursday.
Thanks for hostessing!

Jo Murray said...

It's been fabulous. Great idea Sian.
