Well getting a little more in the FQR spirit, I made and sent my partner's name tag on Monday.
The Royal Mail in their wisdom decided not to bother updating their track & trace beyond telling me that I posted the item - thanks then! But I am happy to report that the name tag is safely in the mitts of the recipient, only the swap-meistress herself trash!!
So no sneak peaks allowed, she would have known they were for her, so straight in there, made and sent...
Seeing that she is the official Ents officer, I went back to basics, with the need to be able to actually read her name at 20 paces in order to be able to approach/avoid as required ;)
So I used some Liberty for the lanyard and bonda-webbed letters, and I gave her a star, in true McDonalds stylee, for 2012!
There's also a tiny pocket, big enough to hold a room or credit card or list of places to be, people to see...
I have been battling with my sample swap items today too - I have racked school-boy errors up to new heights and may just get a seam ripper grafter to my right hand, because it would be more useful than my thumb right now!
But I think I have it all under control again, and hoping for some more reveals soon xxx
