Collabor-ART Mystery gift swap

The wonderful Sarah Harris organized a mystery gift swap over at Collabor-ART. A wonderful blog where you can swap journals, canvases, mail art, etc.. and collaborate on arty projects. If you want to have a go click HERE for details on how to get involved. 

For the mystery gift swap we had to make an arty project and put it in a parcel with some crafty items from our stash, items that you don't mind parting with and recycling. One man's junk is another man's treasure as they say. Then with the parcel you receive from your mystery swap partner, take 3 items and make something from your new crafty bits.

So a big parcel arrived for me on Friday, full of wrapped up goodies.

Here are my wonderful new crafty bits, all laid out on my workdesk. I love the Prima crystals (lots & lots!), the stamps all of them, the alphabets, the papers, the paints....well everything.

Here is my beautiful handmade journal, I LOVE IT sooooo much. Thank you my secret gifter (I still have no idea who you are!)

Well I just couldn't wait to make something with my new arty bits.
So I got straight to work on the first page in my gorgeous handmade journal.

I used my new journal, the art butterfly stamp, and my making memories transfer letters for my 3 crafty bits.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you to my mystery giver. xx
I will treasure it forever. Michelle x

Wow, how amazing is this? You were one very lucky girl but I'm sure you sent some beautiful things too! I love the first page in journal - such a beautiful handmade journal too! - and I look forward to seeing what else you do in there.
Thanks for your comment on my canvas. I know it had its faults but I loved the process and perhaps the next one will be better! Thanks for the inspiration.
