It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

... isn't it exciting, I'm one of those people that just love Christmas (apologies to all the scrooges out there)!

 Last week I posted off my box of goodies to my lovely friend Lynda (Hookin' with LaaLaa) for our Advent swap

I also received my parcel too!  At this point I can only share the parcels all ready to be unwrapped, but don't they look appealing?

Do you see that Lindt chocolate bear? He is now gone, he was rather tasty!

I have to add that I was overjoyed to receive a pack of egg nog mix, Lynda has turned me and Beki into egg nog addicts so anything to help feed the addiction is more than welcome, it was delicious too with full fat milk and a splash of cream and nutmeg ~ Christmassy heaven in a cup!

Isn't swapping a little scary though, I always feel very nervous that I have not sent enough, or that it is not to the standard required but I do like to participate anyway.

Most of my recent makes are presents for Christmas, swaps, and birthdays but I will be back soon to reveal all.
p.s. I'm very nearly at 400 followers (thanks to you all xx) so I'm contemplating a little giveaway when I reach the big 400, watch this space.

~ ♥ Back Soon ♥ ~

Oh you know I loves me my Christmas!!! Those gifties look too precious--I can't wait to see what you get! I don't know if I could follow the rules--I'd have to tear into them immediately!

How lovely your parcels look!! I got mine this week and it's so exciting isn't it?

I know what you mean about swapping being a but scary, I am always worried I haven't sent enough, or my makes are not good enough!!

Ooooh, I've always wanted to try egg nog but don't won't each raw egg (which most recipes contain) where did the mix come from?

Hi I am now following your blog, number 398 so a step closer to 400 :)
I too am taking part in the advent swap and as this is only my second swap I have been extremely nervous for the same reasons you have said, glad it's not just me!
That egg nog looks good, how is it made?
