I sure love the holiday swaps. It's show and tell time for the Merry swap . . .
Since we ended up with an odd number of swappers this round, I was in a 3-way swap. I sent a box to Amy who sent to Angie who sent to me.
Here are the goodies I received from Angie: She organized them into categories so it spelled out MERRY: Memories of Colorado (items she picked up on a recent trip to my hometown--neat!); Eat, Drink and Be Merry: tea, cookies, and M&Ms; Rest during the busy season: tissues, gloves, book, potpourri and candle; Relaxation through hobbies: Target shopping bag =), notecards, clipboard, notepad; Yuletide supplies: tissue paper, Advent reading guide, ribbon, "merry" sign, and ornaments for N+N to color.
As if that wasn't enough, the crowning touch is a wooden sleigh her father made using wood from her great-grandfather's farm. Her husband then sanded and stained it. Wow! What a special gift. Thank you so much, Angie, for your generosity!And here is what I sent to Amy: snowman candles, snowman kitchen towel, nativity made in Israel, homemade hot cocoa mix, snowflake garland, "Merry" napkins, gift notebook, card kit and washcloth for her daughter, thank you notes, and star ornament.Now it's your turn--please leave a link in the comments so we can check out your Merry boxes!
