Well I turned the page on my calendar this morning - we've made it almost to the end of 2011. Its finally December - things start to get exciting and festive :) Now I've had this parcel almost a week but thought I'd share it with you once the proper festive month had begun;
I was paired with Caroline from Whats Happening At My House - a completely new blogger to me and one that I'll be staying in touch with from now on :)
A lovely easy swap brief - 5 pressies - one to be a decoration, something thrifted from a boot-sale or charity shop, chocolate and 2 others things you think your victim would like - easy peasy lemon squeezy. We exchanged emails of likes/dislikes and stalked each others blogs for clues.
Here are the results - firstly the parcel I received;
A christmas mag full of lovely ideas, some knitted tree decs, some candles with little star shaped holders, a festive mug and some chocolate coins.
These are so cute - can't wait to put them on my tree when I'm finally allowed to put it up.
This mug is just perfect for hot chocolate & the works - its been in use already :)
Now when Caroline told me her colours were ice-blue, silver and white, I decided to theme everything around those;
Chocolate coins, blue & silver reindeer decs, a button heart, fab blue nail polish and a handmade felt stocking. She's even the first person to get one of my homemade christmas cards. There was also a little something for her little man but I forgot to take a pic of that.
Thanks Caroline for being a great swap partner and to Lakota for organising everything.
Phew I think I'm finally up-to-date with my blog posts.
I'll leave you with my sampler of November;
