Merry Christmas All!

.....But especially to my Secret Santa (not so secret now)

Every year Carmen from Whoopidoo...ings sets up a Secret Santa swap between bloggers. Once the date has arrived she randomly allocates you a recipient to spend a minimum of £10 on pressies for them. You get an email listing information for your recipient & where you can stalk them to get ideas.

This is the third year I've joined in & its just as fun to collect the presents together as it is to receive them.

When my parcel arrived I briefly opened it to make sure it was from my Secret Santa & then hid it away so I wouldn't be tempted to open it before Christmas Day. On Christmas eve I opened it up a bit more to lay the gifts out & was touched by the fact that not only was there beautifully wrapped presents for me, but also for Ryan & the kids!

On Christmas day I carefully unwrapped the presents so I could keep the reindeers & other beautiful ribbons & embellishments my Secret Santa had included.

Isnt it all fab! Cake decorating items, yay! Wooden embellishments, yay yay! & a variety of shaped paperclips!!! I am super happy. The Thornton chocs are Ryans, while the kids got sweets & a pen each, which Kai had to immediately try out.
And I must draw your attention to the tiny origami Santa on the card, how cute is he!!!!

So who was my Secret Santa, the card, which I opened last, revealed it all. My Secret Santa is te talented Laura from Beads, buttons & birds. Thank you so much Laura, you have made me a very happy bunny :)
