12 Days of Christmas Show Off

I was apparently a very good girl this year, because I got all sorts of goodies in blog swaps this year. The Chaotic Goddesses hosted their annual Twelve Days of Christmas swap and of course I had to sign up. I was partnered with the lovely Judy from The Knotty Needle and she did a great job!  We share a love of office supplies, crafting, writing, and books so it was a match made in heaven for me.  I had so much fun shopping for her, and she did a great job finding things that were exactly up my alley.  Want to see?

 In no particular order:
  • Peppermint bath salts!  Yum.  They smell great.  I love taking baths, especially in the winter.
  • A  box of assorted chocolates.  These were delicious!  I managed to make them last about three days. :)
  • Sturdy Girl All Purpose Cream.  Herbal and yummy.  Winter in Wisconsin makes your skin feel gross, so this is going to come in super handy.
  • Exploding Tardis coasters.  I love Doctor Who, and these are awesome!  I have a copy of the Exploding Tardis print above my desk in my office.

  • A beautiful gold gilded journal. Writing more in 2016 is on my to do list, and this little baby is going to come in handy. 
  • A little pottery dish that I moved into my office to hold my wonder clips.  Which by the way, if you sew and haven't tried wonder clips, you totally should, they're great for bag making.
  •  Rose scented lotion and shower gel.  Again- bath stuff is always appreciated in winter. 
  •  My favorite pen- Acroballs.  I thought Judy was psychic, but when I asked her on Instagram, she told me she had learned they were a favorite from a past blog post.  I don't even remember posting that. :)

  • A book of bookplate labels. I share my books a lot, so these will be very handy. 
  • A lavender scented candle with an awesome wood wick. Lavender is my favorite smell. 
  • A wood inlay bookmark. This is beautiful, and the picture really doesn't do it justice. I was taking it early in the morning and the lighting wasn't very good. 
  • A box of homemade bath bombs! Awesome! Have I mentioned how much I love baths yet? These are going to be great!

Want to see what everyone else got?  Just head over to Chaotic Goddess for the full round up!


  1. Love what you got! Those handmade bath bombs look so fun! :)

  2. I'm a little jealous about those bath bombs! Who doesn't love them?

  3. It was so much fun putting this together. And the day spent making the bath products paid off...both my daughters raided the left-overs and I discovered I love coconut oil!

  4. The bath bombs look great. I've never tried them. I should someday!

  5. This is what I love about the swaps- two awesome bloggers, coming together, mutually stalking each other's blogs, and finding/making/gifting the PERFECT things. I love all of this!
