Summertime Surprise Project

I have been a follower of  Lucy's Blog "Capture By Lucy" for a couple of years now and it is still one of my favourites to hop over to when I have a quiet minute.
She takes amazing photographs using beautiful props and is a genius at party styling;
I mean just look!

This spring Lucy launched the "Surprise Project" -
A seasonal creative box swap to spread a little kindness and happiness.

I loved the idea when I first heard about it but being rather disorganised I missed the sign up deadline;
however I decided to get my act together for the Summertime Project and signed up as soon as I could!
Obviously I loved the idea of getting a little surprise in the post
but I also really enjoy being creative and anything which helps spread some happiness around!

The rules of the project are simple;
when signing up list your interests so your partner can put together something you'd like;
gift/create/make/upcycle something your partner would like - the guide price is £5
pop it in the post before un-boxing day!

My partner Hannah said she loved crafting, baking and upcyling in her interests box so I put together a box filled with crafty bits and bobs, fabric, cookie treat bags and a little kit for her to make her own embroidered brooch...
I really hope she liked it!

Just before opening day I received my own Surprise box in the post and couldn't wait to see what was inside!

Hannah sent me a gorgeous parcel with some of her home-made cookies in and a sweet hand sewn oil-cloth bag!

I love the colour of this pretty little bag and yes, I do love oil-cloth!
It's so lovely receiving something that someone has took the time to make just for you...

I can honestly say Hannah's cookies were some of the best I've ever tasted;
The Mojito cookies were soft, chewy and had a gorgeous lime tang;
the chocolate orange ones were divine- I love chocolate oranges so these were my favourite.
(and I may have eaten them all to myself...)

Thank you Lucy, for coming up with such a great idea which so many people have loved being part of.
I can't wait for the next one!

If you'd like to send and receive some happy mail, the sign up for the "Autumn Surprise Project" opens on September 1st.
I'll definitely be marking my calendar!
