Winter indulgence swap

The greatest swap we ever had in the forum! Each was supposed to create for her partner something as a present and add a do it yourself craft kit with material and instructions and something to warm the throat, could be a hot drink or a winter recipe.
I prepare my package for Maya (nickname: Boten) a dear woman! I started out making a scarf in browns before I knew who I was making it for and when I found it was Maya I realized the only color she doesn't like is brown...So it was back to square one for me. I made another 4 scarves before I was satisfied and eventually couldn't decide which to send so I ended up adding 2 to the package, 1 made from a combination of fleece and fabric in Black and white which is one of Maya's favorite color combinations and the other knitted with my favorite broomstick pattern in ceram colored wool which is one of my favorite colors (-:
I created a craft kit containing wool, a felting needle and instruction how to create a wool fairy and added a fairy I created and a voucher she could use for a wool fairy workshop at my home.
For the throat warmer I added my recipe for hot chocolate for two accompanied by 2 mugs and dark chocolate.Then, as I still had space in the box I added a fabric covered notebook, a pair of nice warm socks (that I forgot to take a picture of) and a ring (-:
I wrapped everything in a colorful box, added a cute card and sent it off by express mail.
I had a great time preparing this!
