Christmas Advent Swap 2013





Oh, look what arrived today!  A box of 25 lovely gifts all wrapped up by my (very) secret Santa.

I'm joining in this years Advent Swap hosted by Cat over at Catalina's Cottage.

I can open the card and then a gift each day until Christmas.  I tried to do a bit of detective work but my secret Santa is obviously skilled in this kind of trickery as there is no sender's address or anything on the box......clever.  So I'm guessing I will have to wait till Christmas morning to see who the sender is.

I plan on putting our tree and decorations up this weekend and will pop all of these amazing pressies under the tree.  Can't wait to see the look on the kids faces.  I wonder how they will react to mum being able to open a gift each day till Christmas.  Green!  I think I will be hot footing it to town this week to pick up some Advent calendars.

I have loved joining in with this swap and putting together the goodies for my swap partner. 

Are you joining in with any Christmas Swaps this year?

Thank you secret Santa!  I can't wait for December 1st!


Merry very nearly Christmas!

    1. Aha!!! And so all is revealed...........ha! Thank you so much Tracy - It is so exciting. I can't wait for December 1st to arrive. How does anyone stop themselves from opening up all the goodies in one sitting. I will be good though. Santa may be watching. Looking forward to getting to know you, via your blog. Have a great week xo

    2. Tracy!!! I have just opened the present I was meant to open with the card ( I never read instructions properly) - the advent calendar is amazing. I don't have one for my 3 and (hangs head in shame) I was going to get the cheapie $2 ones from the Warehouse. I was planning on making them one, but it just hasn't happened. I can't wait to show it too them. Thank you! Elaina xo

      Ever since I got my box of goodies I have been DYING to open them, but I have been very good and haven't even touched them since I took them out of the box!!
