12 Days of Christmas Swap

This is the first time I've been involved in a swap, the 12 days of Christmas, organised by Jo at Through the Keyhole. I really enjoyed looking for bits and pieces and it was exciting to have so many things to open through Christmas week.

My partner was Michelle from The Diet starts Tomorrow, and this arrived before Christmas...



I had to give the box of goodies to my husband to put aside so I wouldn't get too tempted to have a peek or two! It looks so pretty all wrapped up with tags telling me when to open them.

So here it all is



I was very taken with these Christmas decorations, aren't they gorgeous, and the little plaque too, I'm going to hang it in my craft room.



Michelle included the cats and dogs, it was their christmas too



I love stationery, so it was lovely to get these pens and a diary I can carry around with me.



And crafty bits and bobs..




I do like to paint my nails, so it was lovely to get these extra big polish remover pads, file and hand cream.




I hope Michelle enjoyed her 12 days too, I can't wait to sign up again for next year!

Take care
