A couple of months ago Cupcake Mumma asked if anyone would be interested in doing a Mug Swap on Twitter. Thinking this would be a fantastic idea I said that I would love to be involved. Everyone was paired up with someone and emails were swapped. This meant that you got to find out what the person you were paired up with liked and disliked.
I was paired up with a lovely lady called Collette, after exchanging emails I discovered that she is into dressmaking and even used to have a blog on her makes, hopefully she starts up a new one soon so we can all see what she has made. Since Collette loved fabrics, I thought that a Cath Kidston mug would be ideal as a lot of their mug designs are the same pattern as their fabrics. I settled on the Hampton Ditsy Stanley Mug as it is a pretty design. I also added in a Floral pin cushion and some chocolate eggs too. I have a confession as the Peppermint Tea in the picture didn’t end up going with the mug as there was no room in the box and I didn’t have a box big enough. If you are reading this, Collette I apologise :)!
I received a lovely Polish mug that Collette bought from a Farmer’s Market, a box of Lindt Chocolates and some sachets of flavoured Hot Chocolate. The mug has a vintage feel to it with a lovely blue and green apple design.
I loved doing the swap as it was fun buying something for someone that you don’t really know that well, and also the unexpected of what kind of mug you were going to get in return.
Have you ever participated in anything like this? Have you ever received something that you didn’t like? Or were you involved in Cupcake Mumma’s Mug Swap too? I’d love to hear from you!
