Christmas in July 2013

I participated with a group of lovely women in a Christmas in July Swap and we had to wait until today to open our boxes!  O!  The anticipation!!  What a fun activity!

We kept our partners a secret.  We found out who they were when they received our boxes.  My partner is Liz, who had a baby a month ago and still found the time to participate!!  What a girl!!

Liz packs an efficient box. She had a seven inch cube box. Somehow inside this small box was a lot of gifts!

Here's the low down:  a red and black necklace, a plug in fragrance warmer, several wine corks, packages of Christmas note cards, Christmas tags,  a candle, pencils, a ME pen, cute snowflake clips, a game, stickers , a snowman ornament and a cute snowman bag.  I feel like I won the Christmas in July jackpot!

Christmas in July jackpot!!
Thank you sweet Liz, for this exceptional swap box.  I am in love with each and every item!  Thank you for sponsoring this neat swap, Thoughts from the Porch!  I will participate again!!

Christmas In July!

I am so excited for this week's Hallmark Channel Line Up of Christmas shows!  I am publishing them here, for you, from the Hallmark Channel website.  What will you be doing this week?  I am making the ornaments for the ornament swap I am in.  This will be our seventh annual one, I believe.  I am so lucky to be a part of this group who loves Christmas as much as I do!!
