The Swap Before Christmas...


I know that everyone else is going on about what they got for Christmas, but I got my November Swap gift from Dawn before I left town earlier in December and never got a chance to blog about it. I wanted to make sure she got an extra thanks for the presents she mailed. I got the best of three senses:

I can SEE the groovy stickers...
I can SMELL the delicious pumpkin spice candle.
I can HEAR the classy music she sent!

Those CDs there are some various artist favorites of Dawn's and they are jazzy and hip. I took one of them with me over the Christmas holidays (living in Texas means family trips last extra-long on the road). I was singing the swanky blues until my husband finally made me turn it off.

Thanks again for the awesome SWAP gift, Dawn!

I am on my way to the post office tomorrow to mail my December SWAP to Amy. She already sent me her Swap gift, too! I'll post about it tomorrow.

You should see my long "back to the regular groove" list of to-do items and to-blog items around here. It is insane all I have to get done in the next two weeks. Hopefully I'll be able to tread water and pop in here so you know I'm alive.

If you want to join the January Swap, be sure to click over to the Homeschool Blog Awards site. The HSBA site is scheduled to open another swap on Saturday, January the 12th.

Pretty clever how you only got part of the candle lid in that shot. ;-) Tell your family I was not trying to torture them with the CDs. HA!

Yeah - and I turned the CDs up on their side so you can't see the cracked on in the front! :) Blame it on UPS and the holidays for the battered box.

:) I'm going to be needing some blues music around here with the after-the-holidays list I have to get done. It is looking like free time is a pipe dream.

Those candles smell fab. I'm tempted to open and smell them every time someone buys one at my register. But they might not appreciate it too much, so I restrain myself.
