The bounds of bloggers knows no kindness in my view. As you know I organised a Christmas Card Swap at the start of the month, and I swapped cards with several people and have also received some others from bloggers that I have been in touch with. Your kindness is wonderful. Thank you all! Thank you as well to those of you who took part in the card swap, I know that cards have been winging their way around the world and I hope that it has bought some joy to your lives.
This week I was also overwhelmed to win a giveaway from the wonderful Gina at Fan My Flame. Gina is a textile artist and she also teaches her art to others, she is very talented and makes the most wonderful things.
The giveaway was for one of Gina's beautiful Christmas crackers. Isn't beautiful! I love how it shimmers and can only imagine how much work it took to make this. The cracker has now taken its place on our Christmas tree and it looks so lovely there. I haven't taken pictures of the tree yet, but I will show you the cracker in situ when I do. It will be part of the special decorations that I bring out each year.
Of course it was wonderful to receive this cracker from Gina, but I was so surprised when I saw that Gina had included one of her lovely robins in the package too! He is very cute isn't he!! I love the dangly legs.
Thank you Gina so much for your wonderful cracker and the robin too!
Thank you all for your cards and kindness throughout the year!
