Christmas Ornament Swap

Today is reveal day for the Christmas Ornament Swap hosted by the delightful Stephanie (The Enchanting Rose) blog.

This was a lot of fun to participate in. - Thanks Stephanie for hosting this.

The partner that I sent to was,  Jeanie Walker - Jeanie doesn't have a blog so I'm sharing the gifts that I sent to her.  I bought the ornament before I had even received her information. 

This is what I picked out to send her:
I was so excited when I got her information because she said she liked,  Snowmen and Snowflakes.  How perfect was that ornament!

To round out my package I sent:

A wooden snowflake wall hanging,  Some Cocoa, Some mini M&M's, and a Christmas tissue packet.

The parnter who had my name was,  Carol Slater.  She blogs at:

Here is what she sent me:

 A Coffee Mug that says,  A Friend is a present you give yourself, That cute little Christmas box.  It was filled with assorted teas & Junior Mint Cocoa (yum!), Some candy, Butterrum lifesavers, I love those.  Some wax melts,  which I haven't had a chance to use yet as my wax melt pot has been put away until after the holidays but the melts sure smell good, a ink pen and a cute little pinecone christmas pot.

Last but certainly not least was this darling cat ornament.  I put it on the tree right away.
Thank you so much Carol,  everything was just wonderful.
