Queen Of The Month ~Secret Santa Swap~

galiumNovember 13, 2007

We have reached the end of the "Queen Of The Month" Swap.

I have enjoyed getting to know each of you and hope that all of you enjoyed your month as "Queen"

By the end of this week I will have emailed everyone, who signed up for this portion of the swap, with the name of the person you will be sending to.

I thought it would be nice to include pampering items such as lotions, shower gels, etc. I think we'll all need to relax as we wind down the year. If any of you are crafters please include something you've made plus a Christmas Ornament for your partner's tree.

I recived my box, it was full of wonderful things:)
I am not sure if I am suppose to list the contents of the box or not but in the other swaps I have been in that is what we did, so I am going to err on the side of caution and list 'em:)

I recieved 2 books, "Creating a cottage garden" and better homes and gardens "Christmas at home"
A seed mat, which by the way I have never seen before and cannot wait to try.
a sweet plaque that says "little by little day by day, flowers and friendship grow that way"
a Santa Christmas tree ornament (I am thinking it has a sachet of dried something in the bottom of it, I think that is where the lovely smell is coming from) Okay on closer inspection I am wondering if it was not hand made.
a ceramic sandal with a built in thermometer *love it!*
A Christmas cross stitch key ring.
A desk set with pad and pencil.
this last item was my favoritist item out of the whole box, a Days until Christmas reindeer, I absolutly loved it.

thank you so much, I really enjoyed opening and going through this box, you brightened my day at a time when I really needed a pick me up.

I received the most wonderful Christmas Box from my Secret Santa.

She sent me Ghirardelli chocolates (which I hid from my DH), a gold bell ornament with curlies and bows, a snowman ornament on a sled and a medal Christmas gift box (it's so pretty). Plus a cute little hummingbird feeder (adorable). Also glass flower and petal beads, a sticky pad shaped in the letter M, handmade gift cards (looks like dried flowers on them, they are to pretty to use), cross stitch gingerbread man kit (a snowy day project), candle wicks and a small sticky pad.

There is more a Living In The Country Life magazine, a wonderful spiral sketch book, floral writing tablet with envelopes stationary (I'm almost out of stationary and I love the floral design) and 3 plants: Philodendron, variegated Schefflera and a purple flowering Christmas Cactus.

Gosh I hope I didn't forget anything. Secret Santa you have made my day. I'm thrilled with everything. I couldn't have a nicer ending to our year long swap. What a fabulous box.

Hugs,
Mariann

My secret Santa box also arrived today. And I was very touched that my little girl was thought of.Thank you! A workbook, and a little felt purse were quickly confiscated . Very Cute! Also special magic dust was sent to attract Santa's reindeer. ;) She loved it thank you. As for me a cute Christmas flower pot, a handmaid ornament which was hung right on the tree. A little globe ornament that didn't make it in transit. :( Peanut Butter Cookie Mix, Homemade Peanut Brittle,Gourmet Gingerbread cookies, and a lovely spicy tea blend. (seems homemade)I adore tea and would like to know more on how to make it when you can. Also a few ornaments, a puppy in a sleigh, a Santa in a little bag, and a pretty gold and silver candle.Also a back issue of Taste of Home; love magazines and books. Lastly a pillow for the tub and beautiful mini journal.

Thank you Ann for taking your time to send such a special gift and with so many homemade goodies. Also including a little something for my daughter was very thoughtful.
Thank you again, and I hope you have a wonderful holiday!

My computer at home is finally working again. I had a list of what I received Friday from my "Secret Santa" but my daughter accidentally threw it out - the only time she suddenly decided to clean up the kitchen - LOL!

Anyway I think I've remembered most of what was in my wonderful box. All was wrapped so festively!

A bag of Christmas bells chocolates
2 wonderful metal Christmas/Winter hangings (immediately put them on the front porch)
a butterfly necklace
Snowman cork trivet
Giant Milk Chocolate Bar
Hershey's cookbook
Christmasy cork coaster set
Holiday Cookie Cutters
Beaded flower wind chime
a Paperwhite kit
Embroidered hankies
Snowman windsock
Candy Cane Candle set
and
a whole baggie full of wonderful seeds.

Thanks Santa
and
a Merry Christmas to everyone!

Deb-You are most welcome. Glad you enjoyed the box. I made one of those pine cone feeders, last year, and the birds were fighting over it.

Ann-I am happy that you received your box. I sent a box to someone for Christmas and something broke too. It was a glass ball that I had hand beaded.

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year.
Hugs,
Mariann
