I joined a mail swap organized by Hey Kessy. Hey Kessy is an online shop that sells washi tapes. Since I love D-I-Y projects, the idea of sending them to another person and receiving some craft projects excites me. The theme for December mail swap is Christmas. We are supposed to fill a package with anything Christmas-related. Handmade objects were preferred.

This afternoon, I got my package from Isobelle. It was placed in brown envelope customized with a snowflake cut-out.
I knew this is something special. Look how she used dainty paper doily to write a note for me.
I love her penmanship and the red/white motif.
I also got a handmade rubber stamp and stamped envelopes . I am going to use this when I wrap my presents this Christmas.
These are embroidered tags. Galing no?
The awesome part of the package is this intricate cutout of her wish to me. So beautiful! What a sweet lady!
Plus, I got peppermint candies as a bonus. I love how they are consistent with the red/white theme.
My uncle and aunts were quick to eat a piece each. I love the candies, too!
Thank you, Isobelle, for my loot! Here is my wish for you!

Because Isobelle made lovely things for me, I now worry if the recipient of my package liked what I sent over. I am not really an excellent crafter. I had several ideas in mind but it never materialized because I lacked the skills needed. 🙁 So, I stuck with projects I know how. 😀 I will do better next time. 😀

Wow for all the crafters out there. I love the rubber stamp and the embroidered tags.
Such cute work! You know Im not crafty too. I make brilliant ideas but I always fail pagdating sa execution.
very impressive. Isobelle must have been a skilled and talented crafter for a long time now. Kakainggit! She must have been happy you share her talents through your blog.
I am amazed at how intricate the designs are on those crafts. Wow! It takes so much talent – and patience – to do all those. Galing!
Wow… sometimes I wish I was a talented crafter myself. Those were awesome creations. Nakaka-inggit yung stamp pad.
I wish I would have the patience and time to do crafts as well and join a crafts exchange…Being a working mom zaps away my artistic inclinations hehe
Cool! I’m really at awe to people who ‘s just creative!
Love the rubberstamp too! Love everything actually 🙂 I wish I were that creative.
Wow! Galing! I feel like want to join that mail swap, too. I also lave craft works but because of my busy schedule, I can’t do much no matter how I want. Kudos to all crafters! 🙂
Merry Christmas! 🙂
If I only have time for DIYs! Those are lovely. Merry Christmas!
Those are so cool! I hope I knew how to craft. I also plan to buy washi tapes. They look so cute eh!
oh wow. those are really great!
These are such good ideas. I love the idea of creating something from scratch. I just hope I have the funds and sources for it. Merry Christmas to you and your family.
great work.. Merry christmas
I’m curious to see what you sent out. I hope you get to share it with us too. You definitely got a good package there 🙂
I sent out the origami decors from the previous blogpost.
It’s so nice. So creative.
Me wanna do something like that.
The embroidered tags are my favorite! They may be time consuming to do, but they certainly look very intricate and lovely! 🙂
