Christmas/swap/get voting

I have gone and done it.... i have bought my first Christmas magazine:

Money is going to be a bit tight this Christmas, so i am going to have a thrifty one on the decoration front. I am liking these ideas:


Now i know that Jewel has recieved her Cupcake swap parcel i can show you what i sent:

A mug, cupcake cases, sprinkles, a cupcake candle, cupcakes to make, a note book and a handmade coaster.

Sadly my parcel from Jewel seems to have got lost in the post. It has been over 3 weeks now :(

I have just sent off my Autumn swap and am getting the two Christmas swaps i am taking part in organized xx I love swaps and have been very lucky on receiving up until now. But these things happen xx
Just a few notes - Please vote  (on the top of my side bar, or Facebook page) for which cakes i should make next. I will let you have the recipe when i have made them.

And also please like my Poppy and Daisy Facebook page or shout out to others- i will be holding a giveaway once i have 350 likers. There is something handmade/vintage and crafty bits to be won.

Thanks have a great week xx
