in my Share your country swap I also swapped with the lovely Dawn. (you can see what she has written about what I sent her too. We are swapping more wool, as she and friends have gone ga-ga over wool with possum in it!)
Dawn is a clever clogs - she lives on a farm in Maine and spins and dyes wool from her sheep, makes soap, and lipbalms and shops at very cool local farmy businesses. I'd love to do that in NZ - we are a huge farming country, but I know of very little businesses that sell local,in other shops, other than at farmers markets.
Dawn sent an awesome big bag from a local festival, gorgeous smelling soap, a lotion bar and lipbalm,Cadbury Easter eggs (I had no idea Cadbury was in the USA either, but we do not get these eggs here - I can find UK made ones though) - might or might not share with the boys :) , and some of her beautiful, beautiful wool. And a keyring too. (i love key rings and have a multitude of them on my lanyard! Keys are very important at school!)
I loved hosting this swap. Thank you dawn for a thoughtful package.
Go here, here, here, here, to see what others sent and received in my swap so far. There are so many creative, amazing , generous bloggers out there. I have serious craft skills jealousy!
