Swappity Swap Swap

For day 3 of Blogtoberfest i thought i would share with you some crafty goodness from a swap that i have just organised and participated in :)

The only criteria were for the gifts to be handcrafted. We could chose which craft, which family members we were going to make for, how many gifts to make, how much $$$ to spend etc.

I drew out of the hat and for my swappee i got a Harry Potter nut hehe :)

How cool would it be to receive a Hogwarts acceptance letter and chest full of magical goddies? Pretty cool i thought so here is what i put together for her

The chest it all came in, grafittied with "slytherin sux" and "H4G"
