Paperswap - Wrapping and Boxes

My very first paperswap with LaWendula last December .... it was exciting although I didn't quite know what to expect and even less what to send! But there was nothing to worry ... I was teamed up with the very talented and most generous and kind lady: Faerwillow. She took me by the hand and helped me with my first paperswap steps. Thank you so much, my dear friend!
It was December and the theme was: Wrapping and Boxes whereby one of the 'rules' was not to make it too christmasey. I prepared a kraftcard box
(A4 kraft box - covered with newspaper snippets, image from Flickr and international postage)

which I filled with some papers and some other bits and pieces. If you are interested in the contents, Faerwillow posted a wonderful article about the parcel on her blog.
In return I received the most generous, eclectic and unique selection of papers, beads, shells, crafted items, jingles, .....
a wonderful card with one of Faerwillow's magnificient photos
the box covered with music sheet and glitter, beads, wire, a little tree, ....
paper and snippets in wonderfully folded envelopes, a paperdoll with autumn leaves
more little folded boxes and wonderful art

I cannot thank you enough, Faerwillow - take care my friend.
I wish you all a good start into a new week. Petra.
