Day 10: Twelve Days Xmas Swop

Day 10! I am just a few minutes behind in posting… I went from having 2 posts scheduled in advance to writing it on the day itself!

Day 10: Twelve Days Xmas Swop

Day 10: Twelve Days Xmas Swop

On Day 10, Samantha got me a pretty black and white clipboard with notepad! I haven’t bought one of these in years, so I’m glad to have gotten one today, and a very pretty one too.

Clipboard and notepad

The ribbon is so lovely. I pushed it upwards to cover the clip, so I can still use the notepad with the ribbon on!

I am pretty silly for not opening the envelope of photographs first, I know 😛
The left photo shows the back of the notepad and the photographed clue.

Pattern that goes all the way :D

Each sheet has the sweet flower pattern on the side. I find these notepads too precious to use, but I really have to change my ways. I used to hoard notepads when I was a child, finding them too nice to waste, but in the end I gave them away because I just had too many and they were already 20 years old and spotty. That will teach me to use things while they are nice and fresh.

Thank you again Samantha! You are a very experienced gift giver, a whole lot better than I am. 😀

12 Days of Christmas Swop, hosted by Juanita and Chloe. I’m Chloe’s Santa! Check out her Wasted Fashion Facebook Page to see the gifts I gave her.

  1. That is a really nice notepad! And I also hoard notepads 😀 (While decluttering, I wanted to give them away. But they went back to my collection, ha!)

    Experienced gift-giver is such the right term! I am HORRIBLE, based on this 12-day swop thing. I think I am more comfortable finding gifts for someone I know, or have a clue about.

  2. Juanita: Indeed this one is very nice. Hehe I’m glad you kept them all. I went on a de-cluttering rampage when I was back in Malaysia and I gave some away. I hope I remembered to keep the Polly Pocket notebook I got years ago. That thing is vintage now!
    Don’t worry so much… I guess we can all learn from our mistakes. I also am not good at it, as you saw from my bangle gift to Chloe. I should have bought her a resizeable bracelet instead :(

    Alli: It so is! 😀
