12 days of Christmas Swop - Days 9 to 12

So its already Christmas Eve evening and Rich and I are mostly ready for Christmas so I decided to take some time out for blogging and let you know all the other goodies I received in the 12 days of Christmas Swop.
For day nine I received some peppermint bark and some peppermint hot chocolate - unfortunately I don't have a picture as my camera is acting pretty crazy lately. I took a photo but when I checked back later there was no image in the camera. I'm hoping I only need a new memory card and not a new camera.

My Day ten package was some lovely hair accessories - I'm not sure my hair is quite long enough to use the spin pins yet. However, I am in the process of growing it out so hopefully soon I will be able to use them.
Here's the package from day eleven - the note card attached says "There is a learning curve to stripes. Practice with the little ones first".
Inside was a pack of salon effects strips and a pad of Christmas post-it notes. I've used the post-it notes as labels on some Christmas presents.

The final day of the swop included a fabulous little clutch purse - I love the colour.
That's all from the 12 days of Christmas 2012 - a big thanks to Chloe and Juanita for organising this swap and also to my lovely swap partner Allison for all my Christmas goodies. Doing this swop kind of helped to keep my Grinch tendencies at bay - it Chloe and Juanita run it again in 2013 I will take part for sure!

Well I hope you all have a lovely Christmas Eve and Christmas Day tomorrow - Merry Christmas

Those hair pins look like curious things. You've received some nice things from Allison!

Should we think about a 2013 one?!? *LOL*

Now I think an advent swap might be too big a test for me, but I have enjoyed seeing the lovely gifts you received! All you ladies who manage nail art must have the steadiest hands, I can only just manage a neat-ish job with basic colour!
Hope you and Rich have a delightful Christmas, Trees, with lots of love and laughter. And pressies! xxxxx
