Blog Hub Swap - Day 2 plus Some Yarn Dyeing

Day 2 of the Blog Hub Swap (you can find day one here) brought a new parcel to open. But first, I thought I would take a picture of the wonderful brightly coloured pile of presents:

Doesn't it look festive?! Tucked in there is also a white envelope with strict instructions not to open it until my birthday next weekend. Intriguing *laughs*

So, what did day 2 bring?

An absolutely gorgeous notebook, accompanied by some pink pens and some utterly cute mini-highlighters *grins* The message accompanying this said "because I know you love stationery as much as I do!" Yep, Tink is right there, I do love stationery *grins* I have a weakness for notebooks especially ;)

By the way, if you want to see what I sent to my swap recipient, she's blogging about it over here at Tanya's Blog.

In other news, my mum and brother came to visit me at the weekend. My brother requested that I make him another pair of socks, because the ones I gave him for Christmas were so good. Well, how could I refuse?! I grabbed the yarn that I had used before, which isn't the most attractive to begin with:

Mum and brother were quite keen to try out some yarn dyeing, so I grabbed some Kool Aid and off we went *laughs* It was lots of fun, especially as they'd never tried anything like it before. And now we have a much nicer looking yarn:



  1. Lovely stationary, and I love the colour of your newly dyed yarn........I'm wondering what Kool Aid is, I've never heard of that before.

  2. That is a really pretty notebook :-)

  3. I love the types of colors that Kool Aid produces, they are always so vibrant. Your yarn is certainly much improved! I need to give kool-aid dying a try just to say I have.

  4. Everything looks so festive! Great gifts you got there.

    You're so brave with the dying -- good job!

  5. I agree, you can't ever have enough notebooks!

  6. Yay for stationery! I can't take my eyes off the wrapping paper, heh.

  7. I really am going to have to get on and try this Kool aid thing. That looks so good. Do hope you are being a good girl and not peeking at your presents.

  8. Great job with the yarn dying :-) What lovely packaging - how sweet!!
