Springtime Swap, take 2

Spring is back!

And, yet again, I was lucky to be able to participate in the annual Springtime Swap organised by Dawn. Totally psyched, I started thinking about what I’d send my partner, Heidi. Then I started a new job. And sort of forgot. Then two weekends ago I got Heidi’s package, which was a fantastic surprise and a gentle reminder of the fact that….uhm…I hadn’t done anything yet!

What Heidi sent

So on Sunday I opened my magic crafty box, took everything out and concentrated. Spring. Creativity. Colour. Spring. Spring. Spring.

This is what I made.



What I did







I got an email last night saying that the package had arrived safe and sound.

Here’s the photo Heidi sent me of the magnet, already on her fridge!




About Full Of Daisies

I am permanently in love. Things I like: purple, pasta, silk, autumn, the smell of mould, candles, cachi, having friends, water, new things, rice, eggs (all eggs!), fresh grass, olive trees, shiny things, glitter, hanging objects, windcatchers, wind, couscous, wasabi, carnivores, presents, snow, leaves, orchids, feathers, cappelletti, meat, fruit (all fruit), more del gelso (Morus alba L.), pigs, candles, christmas, polenta fritta!, separating egg whites from yokes in my hands, cartoons, dragons, the ocean, nudibranchi, cows, mercury (the metal), cosmos (the flowers), thunderstorms, Mika, turtles, acquariums, green and blue (mixed), siccamores, spring, snails, 24, porc with a sweet sauce (apple, cranberry, tomatoes jam), looking at a swimming pool upsidedown and underwater, english accent, open-minded people, driving, blue skies, checkered tablecloths, butterflies, books and cartoons in rhyme, painting eggs, the star-shadows that football players have, silver, laughing, Vivaldi, bells and chimes, white and purple, creating. Complete Happiness: Early morning. Sun, with a breeze; a pond with water lilies. A house, with a garden, full of plants. A vegetable patch, lemon, orange and mandarin trees. Cosmos everywhere. Birds in the trees; a tortoise eating the salad from the vegetable patch; a mammal (I couldn’t decide which one would make me happier) close by. No houses for as far as the eye can see. Me, a man that loves me and that I love. Friends coming over for a lunch that I have to prepare, and have all the ingredients for all ready in the kitchen.

  1. I’m so glad you were able to participate again! Thank you so much for joining, and for taking the time to make things! I’m glad Heidi was able to have a place for the lucky ladybugs. 😉 That gift bag is quite pretty, too, and very spring-like! And even though you had to package everything up to make sure it made the trip overseas, you did a great job of making everything look pretty! Thanks again for joining in.
