ii was recently in a swap over at Georgie's Decisionally Challenged blog for the second year in a row. It is the Secret Santa Soiree. W e filled out a questionaire of or likes for this. This year we post what we got our swap partner and see if they can guess who thier partner is. This has been so much fun. Enjoy!
                                               This is what I got my partner. She loves to read, so I thought a good book would be great!

                                               Next, she doesn't splurge on herself, so I thought some real sweet body wash, soap and lotion might be a good thing. It smells so awesome.

She loves chocolate, so  I included a bag of it.
And coffee to start her morning off right.
                                            She likes nice fingernails, and then a facial to go along with that. And a couple little bottes of lotion.
                                             My partner also loves penguins, so I put avotive holder of a penguin with candy in, a little windup penguin, and alittle paddle and ball to waste away the time. And a few other small items. Here is a pic of most of it together. I hope you like your swap package SSS partner. I enjoyed puttingit together.


DAY # 2

A BRIGHT AND CHEERY MATCHBOX!  This was from Pam Pederson(fasterkittykill.blogspot.com) inside were 2 cute little ornaments for on the tree, Thank you Pam...it is awesome!

He's on his way......
HE'S HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Look who stopped by to see me...SANTA CLAUS. I am so thrilled. Hope everyone has been good. You just never know where Santa will be. Santa is part of the Swap For All Seasons Santa Claus Blog Along Giveaway.


I am back again...hopefully, I am done with hospitals for awhile. It was a rough summer and now I am finally feeling better. Not 100% yet, but I will get there sooner or later. My DH is okay now after his cancer scare. It just seemed anything that could go wrong these past several months, it did. I haven't been able to do too much, although i have tons to do. I am working on my swap "Countdown To Christmas" from A Swap For All Seasons. I have had alot of fun doing the matchboxes, and will be ready to send them off Monday. Thank you Linda for such a great swap. I will miss working on them. The weather here in Western Pa. is finally getting warmer today.Had enough of rain to last awhile. The color of the trees are exceptional this year, and so beautiful. I am working on some snowmen for Christmas right now. I will post pics after I get a few done, and a few other Christmas items. Just think, the snow probably is not that far off. BRRRRR!!!!!! And on that note...
