I may have mentioned this a time or 2, but I love Christmas! When I saw people on twitter chatting about ornament swaps, I joined on in. The first swap I was a part of, I was paired up with Alicia from Walking in Faith. She sent these super cute mitten ornaments that HJ and I immediately hung on the tree.Naturally, I took to etsy to find an ornament to send to Alicia’s family. I found this little wood carved reindeer from Eve Tait’s Creations. I hope it looked as cute in person as it does in this picture!
The other ornament swap I took part in, I was partnered up with Ashley from Crayons and Caffeine, another single mom blogger! I have interacted with Ashley a number of times on twitter, and was excited to get to send her something special. She told me that her family likes to get an ornament every Christmas with the year marked on it, so I saw this sparkly little treasure on etsy, from the shop Vanity Cases and had to send it their way!
A few days later, HJ and I arrived home to a box on our front porch. I was eager to rip into it and see our ornament, but Ashley had a few other surprises up her sleeve. Here is what all arrived to us:
A sweet card, a nerds ornament with yummy candy inside, a cute snowman box tied up with string (and inside, a gorgeous ornament!). And for HJ, she sent along truck stickers, christmas tree peeps, and a mini stocking with a hot wheel inside (HJ slept with the car that night). Here is the ornament that was inside the cute snowman box…
Participating in the ornament swap was like getting Christmas a little early. And I love having beautiful new ornaments to decorate our tree with.
