Time for the second #DICraftSwap update! This was the second month of the craft swap that Hannah over on Dainty and Ivory has so wonderfully organised and this May's theme was GEEK. Interestingly enough what I sent and what I received were not exactly the 'geek theme' I had personally envisioned (action heros, comic books etc). Having said this I was thoroughly impressed both with what I sent and what I received and love it all :)

I also included a parchment writing pad from Paperchase (combining history and Hannah's love of letter writing) along with some Paperchase stars for her card-making, and a woven bookmark that too reminded me of the Tudor period - hopefully she likes it all!

The June theme was chosen by me (how exciting!) as Hannah had asked for ideas, and the theme is BOOKS. I have lots of ideas for this one already - going to reach out of the box and probably not crochet this time - and can't wait to get the info for it! If you would like to sign up you have until TOMORROW (argh good thing I got this post up!) and you can find all the information you need here on Hannah's blog. Hope you sign up!
Tomorrow I am investigating a handmade craft fair in Stockport town centre, and I can finally share with you what I made my dad for Father's Day - hope to share lovely pictures with you :)
