It Was Just Like Christmas
This afternoon after the postman delivered 3 packages to my house....and they were all for ME! YeeHaw!
Here are the goodies I got from my blog swap that Valerie over atYorkies Primitives was hosting. Jennifer over at the Busy Bee blog was my swap partner. Jen sent the cutest gingerbreads tied together with a cheesecloth strip and a little jingle bell was added. Now how did Jen know that I love gingerbread? Jen also sent a set of three colorful bobbins tied with a fabric bow and topped off with a coffee stained hangtag that says "Christmas Bobbins".
Also in the package were 3 Christmas tree ornies... a snowman head, a red star and a scrabble tile ornie that said Joy. Isn't that cool and creative? I gotta say that the package that Jen sent was all wrapped so pretty in red checked gingham tissue...I almost didn't want to open in, but of course, anticipation won out. Thank you Jen for being a wonderful swap partner. I love all that you have sent.
Next up are my ornie swap goodies from the swap that Wendy over at Ravenwood Whimzies hosted. I got my swap from Judy at Prim2Pink. I gotta say that the smells coming from the package even before I opened it were divine. I don't know what the postman thought when I smelled the package when he handed it to me! Oh well, he probably wouldn't have gotten it, even if I explained it! Judy sent a perfectly prim gingerbread ornie and a shabby chic angel cookie cutter that she crackled and painted some sweet little rosebuds on. Thanks Judy for the great swap. I can't wait to put my ornies on my tree, but of course still have a few weeks to wait as we get a fresh cut tree.
And this little cutie I purchased from Norhtwindstar's etsy shoppe. Lex made the cutest reindeer ornie. If you haven't popped over to her etsy shoppe to check out her goodies, you really should...you won't be disappointed.
And OMG! When I saw these cute, cute snowmen, I just had to buy them. They even sit independently. I can't wait til I start decorating for Christmas...won't be but a few more weeks as I gotta get through the mad rush of Christmas orders from online shoppers. Hopefully this year proves to be just as fruitful as last year and so far, it's pretty much on track.
