Happy Halloween and a Spooky Swap!

Hope everyone had Happy Halloween!!!!

I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to reveal the swap package I received from the beautiful Beki and her DD Jess!
An absolute age ago we arranged a Halloween swap between my Cousin Marcus and Beki's DD Jess, we decided to maximise the fun by swapping between ourselves as well!
I am long overdue in posting about the fabby packages Beki and Jess sent us. Check out Bekis post to see what we sent here!

Marcus and I were so excited when our packages came through the post, 2 boxes filled with Halloween treats, you can't get any better than that!
Marcus couldn't wait to open his!!!
One he got through the spooky spiders webs that is!!!

Marcus was really pleased with all the things in the package, there was: Balloons, witches fingers, a Halloween tote, spiders, eyeballs, a dvd, a book, a jumping bat, chocolate skeletons, slime, skull stickers and Spiderman candy sticks. and a really nice card. thank you so much Beki and Jess!!
My package was equally as great!!!! All the gifts were wrapped beautifully! It seemed a shame to unwrap them!!! look!

Beki made me this pretty fabric cat! I'm very taken with her, I have called her Dotty and she now lives in my craft room, as you can see she is very comfortable on my chair!

Beki also sent me my fave DVD! I'm really pleased as my copy has gone walkies!!!, A book (Perfect for the train to work!), A yankee tart (pumpkin of course!), Some napkins and a black nail polish!
Some more decorations to add to my stash!

Beki also made me a lovely tote bag in a great autumnal orange with black lace trim! How pretty!
Look at this cool postcard!!!
I will be framing it ready to get out next year!!!!
Thank you beki and Jess we had great fun gathering your gifts and loved everything you sent us! When's the next one???? :)
Speaking of swapping, don't forget about our Secret Santa swap,

Victoria and I have been working hard to make sure that you all get your partners ASAP!
Any one who hasn't joined in that would like to, what are you waiting for! Just e mail me the completed questionnaire and please include your postal address (can't believe we forgot to ask for that on the original post!)
we appreciate that Christmas can be busy for all and expensive so remember you can choose a £5 or £10 gift option
We would like you to have signed up and emailed questionnaires to us by 2nd November so we can start letting you know who you are buying a gift for on 4th November Don't fear if you're worried about timings, we will take swappers up to the 11th November but remember you'll have less time to put your package together

As always please speak to Victoria or I if you have any questions!
Think that's all folks!
Need to get to reading and commenting now!!!
Lots of Love

Hello Kelly darling, what a lovely exchange, Marcus got some fun items; I bet he was spookily thrilled. Love Miss. Dotty!! Darling, thanks for popping over my cottage and for leaving such sweet comments. I am so sorry that I am unable to visit your lovely blog as often as I like. With my dad’s condition and the attention he requires, time is scarce of late. I so appreciate your unconditional visits and kind comments…you are a dear friend. Take care darling and have yourself a marvelous week.

Love & Hugs
