Secret Santa

I took part in Carmen's Secret Santa in December...it was so much fun as it involved "stalking" and creating and buying....I love buying...and giving!

I had no idea who my Santa was until Carmen posted her list on Sunday.

Thank you so much Ally! My parcel was perfect...right down to the footballing Santas on the wrapping paper.....

Here it is just before opening (and I was very good..I waited until Christmas Day..)

Note that I'm still sharing my "craft" table (it's really the dining table) with a jigsaw puzzle....I think DH may have to venture into the attic as he's run out of charity shop/Christmas present jigsaws...... but I digress...

Here is the parcel after opening...

It was packed with goodies....the chocolates have disappeared only to no doubt re-appear on my hips in the near future.
The crafty items have been stroked and drooled over, along with the tote...and I have plans for the notebook...

During the crafting drought at the end of 2012, I had time to prints off lots of "journal" pages that I'd downloaded from various sources (prompted by Pinterest)...I intend to journal seriously this year.....but you know what's paved with good intentions don't you? Fingers crossed I manage it.

And there you have it....thanks to Carmen for organising the swap whilst being very busy with a new (and totally gorgeous) baby boy.

I'll be back tomorrow with some Christmas crafting.....oh, yes....the mojo is back...and back with a vengeance....
