A while ago now, I signed up to take part in the Lipstick and Lashes Blogger Snail Mail. It is a quarterly gift exchange to meet bloggers from around the world and spread some love!
My partner was Gemma, the organiser. I was conversing by email with Gemma for a month or so, and it has been really nice. We share a love of dogs, long weekends(!) and a background in the voluntary sector, and I have loved getting perky emails from Gemma during busy weeks at work. They really made me smile.
She sent me the most amazing bunch of goodies – post is always nice, but this bundle was great. My goodies included a a divine bluebell candle in homage to a bluebell wood run, a little tin which I will be storing buttons in and a little pamper pack, to help me relax after all the sport I am doing. I also love the postcard and notecard with happy thoughts inside! My husband has promised to make me a craft unit, with drop down table and lots of shelving, so the cards will be decorating that once it’s finished. I sent her a bumper pack of nail varnish (Gemma is a big fan) as well as the pattern for fabric Russian dolls, as Gemma is a little bit of a sewer.If you would like to take part in the next Blogger Snail Mail, it opened on 16 May and you can sign up until the 30 May.
