A Christmas exchange

You know how I love exchanges especially around Christmas.
This year I am partaking in three and this one was the first to be completed so I can blog about it!
It was the #secretsanta2016 exchange organised by sweet Zina of Efzin creations blog.
I received a lovely package from sweet Katerina of mindspinfabrica blog.
She had dressed the box in lovely red and white paper with hearts.
She had wrapped everything beautifully.
She made me a fabric and paper book in which I can stitch and write at the same time.
Also a little fabric pouch in matching fabric.
She also made me a beautiful Christmas card and included a craft magazine and some candy.
Thank you so much dear Katerina.
Katerina and I belong to the same crafty group here in town organised by Anna of In My Closet and she knew what I would like most.
I in turn had to make something and send it to Margarita of  mommywiki blog.
I made one of my stones in red which is her favourite colour but it is so Christmassy too.

I also made some chocolate and put it in a tin box.
I added a couple of materials for handicrafts as well as a card.The card is one I had bought last year from the dog shelter where we got Barca. But I added some embellishments on it.


 Margarita liked my parcel and I am glad.
Thank you Zina for the organisation of the exchange and thank you Katerina for the beautiful gifts you sent me.
