Secret Santa and Beachcomber exchanges!

Ever since I opened up and met egst (Etsy Greek Street Team) I have made new friends (all crafters), I have attended happy meetings and interesting workshops and in general have been having fun participating in lots of things.
One of them was the Secret Santa exchange at the egst where you had to send something handmade to one participant and would receive something from another! It was fun. This is what I received! Dear Emilie of Prosinemi sent me this lovely silver pendant and added a cross stitched bookmark. She read all my info in the Secret Santa list and knew exactly what to send. Thank you Emilie!

And this is what I sent. The person I had to send my gift to was Myrto at Journalshop. Of course I had to send one of my stones which I made in the colours that were Myrto's favourite ones according to her Secret Santa details.
 I also packaged her gift myself and added a handmade wire good luck charm pomegranate.
Another exchange was also sometime before the holidays with Cheryl of the great blog beachcomber.
She also has this lovely etsy shop.
So she sent me this beautiful bracelet.

And I sent her one of my stones. I made it especially for her.

 And added some Greek sea glass and sea tiles of course!
I love exchanges. More on giveaways, and online purchases as well as what the mail brought in future blogposts!
