Christmas Tradition Swap!

Look what I got in the mail today! The lovely Stephanie (sorry, no blog) sent me this package of goodies. We are supposed to send a favorite holiday tradition with a tutorial "how to", a music c.d. , one hand made ornament, a recipe, and any other items we think would make a great gift.

Stephanie sent me an advent calendar -with instructions, a c.d with all kinds of different artists, and a little handmade origami fish! In addition to those was a package of fondue cheese (she's from Wisconsin!), a chocolate advent calendar, a set of DIY knitting needles, a favoured book from her childhood full of Christmas stories, and a stack of interesting papers, cards, and stickers!

I sent Stephanie the little handmade house (from the previous post), some sheet music (she plays piano and guitar), a couple of different chocolate goodies, a favourite recipe for cookies, 3 of my world famous Christmas c.d.s (lol), a spool of French ribbon and a favourite Christmas story, and a package for under the tree that go along with another tradition. (I think that's it... I sent it before I photographed it, ugh!)

It's been a great time getting to know Stephanie and I hope she enjoys the package I sent her too!

Chronicler, you make me laugh! Maybe you can stop by on your way home from the holidays and we can fondue together!

Kellibelli, I love, LOVE, your mom! I am VERY happy that the letters came out well for you. That's one cute family you got there.
