Christmas Ornament Swap

Tis the season...

I recently took part in a fun gift exchange through The Enchanting Rose.  This blog belongs to my lovely niece, Stephanie, and she always does such an amazing job hosting these exchanges.

This time around, it was a Christmas decoration exchange.  If you have taken part in her past tea cup exchanges, you know how much fun they can be.  When this opportunity came up, I just couldn't resist.  Stephanie always does a fantastic job at pairing everyone up.  Through this exchange, you will meet 2 new people.  One will be the person that you send to, the other being the person sending to you.  Many friendships have been made through these fun exchanges.

The person that sent a sweet package to me was Mary Anne from magpiesmumblings.blogspot.comMary Anne created everything herself and did an absolutely beautiful job.



She sent this adorable quilted Santa hot plate.  How cute is he?  (Sorry for the poor lighting lol).



Isn't this card angelic?


I just love the embroidered tree with all the embellishments.


And to make the package even sweeter, she sent some yummy hot chocolate and two flavored tea bags.


The person that I sent gifts to is Darla Bodnar.  Unfortunately, I forgot to take photos of what I sent. 

Another wonderful exchange Stephanie!
