Day 2: Twelve Days Xmas Swop

I hope Chloe, all the way in Singapore, likes the presents that I sent to her. I feel guilty about the quantity of stuff I’ve received, but I know I have given so little to my own swap partner… I’m truly sorry about that. I took the term “twelve items” too literally.

It’s day two, so another of Samantha’s packages gets opened up today. I chose this small one:

The silver wrapping paper with snowflakes is lovely too!

It’s a magnet! Scenes from Texas maybe? I don’t know if a photo can be placed in there, I have no idea how to open it if that’s the case. I’ll be leaving it as is. I’ve even put it on my travel magnet board!

Most magnets are from Australia, some from Europe, New Zealand, and other places. The new one from Texas fits right in!

Day 1: Twelve Days Xmas Swop

Let’s get rolling. Here is the amazing swop parcel from Samantha, opened up! So many different wrapping papers used, I love that. The Spongebob Christmas wrapping paper caught my eye instantly… 😀

And thus, I decided to open one of those first.

The wrapping paper is really cute, had to take photos of both sides. I do like Spongebob! Brace yourself… here is the unwrapped item:

Two bubble bath bottles

Bubble bath! It’s purple! They’re packaged in such cute Christmas-light-bulb-shaped bottles. The shape really reminds me of a Christmas prop in a PC game I used to play, Petz. But I digress…

I have to start taking bubble baths. Perfect timing, because it’s summer where I am! I’m actually amazed this could be posted by air since I wouldn’t be able to do the same from over here, liquids restrictions. Thanks Samantha! 😀

12 Days of Christmas Swop, hosted by Juanita and Chloe. Below is the list of everybody participating in this swap, and where packages were sent to. I copied the list… hope no one minds!

Nine of twelve items

Just wanted to update everyone on my progress for the 12 Days of Christmas Swop. I have already collected 9 of 12 items. They’re not wrapped yet, I have a lot of personal packing to do before the 12th of November. I shall do all my wrapping after that. :)

I’m super excited and hope the future recipient will like them. So far, I have things like stationery, costume jewellery and fashion accessories, and maybe one item could be classed as a trinket. I was straying towards every item being purple, but I forced myself to include items in other colours. ^^

Christmas Swop!!

A good friend of mine, Juanita, is hosting a 12 Days of Christmas Swop. I shall be participating this time. I hope I can get things in order by the time it’s due!

I hope I also start blogging a bit more. This place has gone really quiet. I can’t seem to sustain this habit and I tend to hang around Flickr more.
I’ll be back soon with more posts!
