Meet.Make.Laugh Mail Swap

About a month ago I wrote a review for the Girls’ Night In book and one of my lovely Canadian bloggy pals Stephanie from Meet.Make.Laugh left a comment.

Stephanie writes the blog with two friends Hayley and Cindy writing about their girls’ nights in together and crafty goings on in their lives. I knew the book would be perfect for them, so contacted Stephanie to see if she wanted to do a mail swap with me. 

This week, my package arrived all the way from Victoria, BC and to say I was excited to open it was an understatement. Each item was wrapped in brown paper with a yarn tie and had a clue for what was inside…..

Tammy seemed to like the handmade parcel (she is a craft cat of course!).

The card was utterly perfect. Scrabble tiles! SO me.

I am a huge fan of maple syrup so I spent a good few minutes staring at this maple bacon flavoured sea salt saying “on my word” over and over again. It sounds delicious and I can’t wait to put it on some ice cream!

And come on guys…that notebook could not be any more perfect for me. Mint AND bicycles…..love.

We agreed on one handmade item per package and I was super excited to see what the girls had enclosed. Stephanie had knitted me this beautiful beanie hat (or toque as the Canadians call it) in a gorgeous teal blue colour. The loose knit is great for Spring. Plus I was totally having a bad hair day Sunday and it was really windy so the hat had an outing.

When I visited Vancouver at Christmas I crammed my suitcase full of Davids Tea as they don’t ship to the UK. They girls had sent me a selection box which I cannot wait to get started on.

G laughs as our coffee cupboard is no more. Since I gave up caffeine it is filled with tea and now makes me look like an utter tea freak. Which I am.

I’m totally overwhelmed with my package from the Meet.Make.Laugh girls. Thank you SO SO much! I love making blogging friends across the water and am so grateful for all the support they give my blog. Thanks girls 🙂

Please make sure you stop by the Meet.Make.Laugh blog to see what I sent Stephanie, Cindy and Hayley!
