I received my first trade parcel in the mail. You know how excited I get by parcels....... yup, very chuffed!
I swapped this........
for this ...from Paw and Claw Designs.
It was my first trade experience and a pleasurable one at that - Nichole is great to deal with & very very funny. During our email banter she had me laughing out loud on more than one occasion ...I love that! Crazy thing is I haven't actually worn earrings in my ears for about 8 years. I figured this was a good excuse to change that. Amazingly, and to my complete surprise these little babies slid straight into the old holes.
Little Sachin (my 17 month old fella) thought it was hilarious and couldn't understand why Mummy wouldn't play along with his yanking game??? Needless to say they didn't last in my ears for very long. In addition, my ears began to look a little red raw after the first 10 minutes. Rubes (my 2 1/2 year old gal) looked at my shiny red lobes and sympathetically said "you'll be alright Mummy" before walking off to put her rabbit "Rae" to bed.
Guess I'll have to work on the ear redness thing...probably not the best look! Despite this, the earrings look fabulous - thanks Nichole :)
We also farewelled these tools today. They're on the road tonight to the Euroa Butter Factory to hang out and socialise for a while at the bar. A bit of subtle networking may be required by these four if they want to find themselves new homes! Goodluck guys.
ps. Nichole - please note my red ears are in no way any reflection on your earrings....... they are beautifully crafted and fine quality. My ears are just being precious!
