12 Days of Christmas Swap Revel!

So, I hope everyone had a nice Christmas.  I actually got Christmas eve and Christmas day off this year.  It was nice.  We went to my husband's family's on Christmas Eve, and mine for Christmas.  I finished a second super tote, which I totally forgot to photograph.  (It was a Christmas present for my mom and I finished it up on Christmas morning.) 

But, today I am writing to show off all the cool goodies I got from my 12 Days of Christmas Swap partner!  My partner was Aubrey from High Heeled Love.  

She did a great job of finding things that fit me.   Everything was wrapped all cute and numbered in the order to open them.  I did open them in order, but the pictures aren't in order.  Take a peek at all the awesomeness!

So let's go through them, shall we:
Row 1- 1st: A handmade scarf that is super soft and beautiful colors.  The picture doesn't really do the colors justice.  Scarves are always needed in Wisconsin in the winter.  2nd: Homemade chocolate chip cookies in an adorable tin.  Yum!  3rd: A set of cashmere socks.  I love toasty socks when cross country skiing.  4th:  Christmas tree place settings to hold your silverware.  So cute, although I think they'd look good as tree ornaments too.

Row 2- 1st:  "It's a most wonderful time for a beer." napkins that go in clear coasters.  Pretty nifty.  2nd: A Julep hand care kit, with scrub, cuticle oil and nail strengthener.  The scrub smells delicious and works great.  3rd: Two bottles of Julep nail polish.  A pretty pink and a nice dark glitter.  4th: A bag of Hershey kisses in dark chocolate.  These will come in handy when the Christmas cookies are gone.  :)

Row 3- 1st:  A CD of holiday music.  I love Paste magazine and used to subscribe until I got too cheap.  I've played the CD a lot and it's pretty nice.  2nd: Homemade cinnamon bun soaps, super cute.  3rd: A julep compact of neutral color eyeshadows.  Super handy because 90% of my eyeshadows are neutral colors and I love multi packs.  4th: An adorable sock monkey ornament and snowflake ornament.  Both went up on the tree right away and both had to be up high enough that HB couldn't grab them.

It was a super fun swap and I hope Aubrey liked her stuff as much as I liked mine.  If you want to join the next swap, just follow Chaotic Goddess Swaps.  The girls are always hosting wonderful swaps and they do a great job pairing everyone up and running a smooth swap, that's always fun.
