Chookyblue's Secret Santa Swap

Frist, I'd like to thank Odette for being my Santa. She sent so many lovely and fun goodies it's going to take a few pictures to show them all off. First we have a lovely appliqued towel. The cutest scissor holder and pincushion. She made them all.

Marshmellows !! Chile marshmellows are not as sweet as the ones here in the US a very nice change. Those I shared with the family. I just adore this little oragami box. SO interesting and fun. Odette you should do a tutorial on them for blogland :) Also in this pic is a hot pad shaped like an ornament.

And there's still more, lovely bath flakes, a heavenly smelling sachet- chocolate ( i hid that ) and a stitchery kit.

I know we were supposed to wait till Christmas but starting today with my daughter's 19th bday, everyone being off of work and school starting Tuesday. I wanted this box to be for me. Some Christmas carols playing, relaxing with a glass of wine and not rushing.

I'd like to thank Odette again for such a wonderful package and a big thank you to Chookyblue for organizing a Christmas swap for over 150 with way less drama than we did on a little group. Please remember me next year when you do it again. This was defiantly alot of fun.
