Blogger Santa Swap: The Package

After Friday, I'm taking that break(I swear!)-I needed to put this post up so that my swap partner knows that I got her package and L.O.V.E.D it :)

I recently participated in the Blogger's Santa Swap over at Shannon's place, The Mommy-Files. This is actually the second time I have participated in an event like this, so I knew what to expect when I signed up. You may ask WHY I signed up if I'm so overwhelmed with the impending holidays and my numerous projects, but to tell you the truth, it's something that is just fun.

Plain and simple.

Anyway, I was paired with a lovely Canadian blogger who goes by the name Tammi of My Organized Chaos. If you haven't visited her, I suggest you do so!

She was so sweet-Here is what I opened the package up to:


How pretty is that? I was so taken with the packaging, I almost didn't want to open it....Almost. LOL Here is what that lovely arrangement held for me:



  • A fun Santa plate
  • A package of gift tags(much needed)
  • A package of holiday-themed sticky notes(I <3>
  • A cute reindeer door hanger
  • A pair of holiday fuzzy socks(wearing)
  • A beautiful holiday candle with accessories
  • A box of holiday-themed ziplock bags(cookie time!)
  • A light up Santa shot glass(SUPER FUN)
  • A Candy Cane badge
  • A Santa themed box(too cute)
  • A beautiful angel ornament
  • A holiday bag filled with goodies: 2 Coffee Crisp Bars and 2 boxes of Smarties

I've already put some of the decorations to good use:



And I would show you a picture of the yummies, but I don't think that's a picture I can obtain right about know ;-)

I just wanted to take a moment to thank both Shannon for holding and organizing this swap and Tammi who send me this beautiful package!! You both are amazing-In fact, so is everyone who participated!

Love and Energies.

I've heard of these swaps, but I never got involved in any. So, you actually exchange real addresses and send each other something? How neat.
