A while ago I signed up for a 12 Days of Christmas swap, you had to make 12 handmade gifts all the same and send them to the swap hostess (Ms Sweetpea) who along with her elf helpers sorted out everyones gifts so that all swappers would recieve 12 pieces of handmade art in return! I couldnt wait! Infact I ended up signing up for this swap 4 times!!! Which meant I had to make 4 different types of gifts 12 times = 48 handmade gifts in all! We had to have our packages in by the end of November.
Today Christmas arrived EARLY! Because my HUMUNGUS box from Sweetpea arrived containing my 12 Days Of Christmas Swap!! Look at the size of this box in the photo below – Harry is sat on the box to give you an idea of how big it is!!
On the outside of the box was some gorgeous handmade festive slide hangers which Ms Pea had made for each and every swapper! I decided to hang mine on the tree, I took a photo but its not much good because the tree is twinkling like crazy with all the lights and fibreoptics!
Heres a photo of inside the box when I opened it before I pulled out any gifts:
And heres a photo of the pressie pile which Santa Pea and her elves sorted out especially for me!
Now to decide which pressies to open first!!!! Im so excited I cant breathe properly! Heres a pic of me and my fur baby taken just before we opened the box:
