12 Days of Christmas Show Off!

This was my second year of participating in the 12 Days of Christmas Swap (hosted by the ladies over at Chaotic Goddess Swaps).  I was partnered with Ashley from Happy. Pretty. Sweet.  And happy, pretty, and sweet all are good words to describe Ashley.  We know each other from the blog world, but it was fun to actually email each other and see how much stuff we have in common.  We both love Jane Austen and Doctor Who.  She's very crafty and she loves cats.  I think if we lived closer we would have to hang out.

My huge package from Ashley arrived right in the middle of work-pocalypse.  We were crazy busy and someone ended up crying at least once a day just from feeling overwhelmed and exhausted.  Then some strain of gastroenteritis started making its rounds through the hospital, hitting both patients and staff.  My little present a day was the bright spot of the day many days.

So, want to see what I got?  I was going to write down what I opened each day, but then I was sure I'd remember. Guess what, I don't.

So in no particular order, here are my 12 Day of Christmas gifts:
  1.  A package of "hello" note cards.  Super cute!  Red with gold lettering.
  2.  A pair of polka dot socks. 
  3. A cute, blingy bracelet.
  4. Knit cowl and ski band in turquoise.
  5. Some Crabtree and Evelyn lotion and shower gel.
  6. A copy of Bath Tangle by Georgette Heyer.  Sounds good.
  7. Some bright and fun body glitter.
  8. Lindt chocolates.  Yum!
  9. Some Frozen themed tissues.
  10. Ulta body lotion in "Fresh Lilac"
  11. Tea!  Love tea in the winter.
  12. Headphones.  They were in the package, but I tore them open and having been using them.  These came at a perfect time, because my current pair have a bare wire and I'm not really sure they're safe to be jamming in my head. Thinking I should make the headphone cord wrap I saw on Pinterest.  Especially since HB likes to chew on my headphones.
If you want to see what everyone else got, including what I sent to Ashley, go check out the swap link up at Chaotic Goddess.


  1. Fun gifts, that card is sooo cute! Thanks for joining us!

  2. I had some of those Lindt chocolates recently and now I have to resist buying them every time I see them. Happy new year!

  3. I had so much fun with this swap! I'm glad the little gifts brightened your days :)

  4. Isn't it great when you get just the thing you need unexpectedly?

  5. I've got so many sets of headphones!!! You can never have too many because of your reason... the wiring. Happy New Year!

  6. You two are definitely a good pairing, given you're both sweet! I hear fantastic things about Georgette Heyer books, especially for Austen fans. What a fantastic, well-timed package! :D
