My Beautiful Christmas Swap From Christel!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. We did, there were pressies everywhere and with 5 children opening their gifts it took up the whole living room and dining room and there were toys and wrapping everywhere !

I had some amazing miniature pressies, all of which I will be showing over the next few days, or maybe when the children go back to school next week and I have more time!!
But for starters I participated in the Christmas swap ran beautifully smoothly by the lovely Rosanna!

My gift was from the pretty Christel, I adore Christels miniatures so was so so happy to be recieving from her.

I think Christel must have been one, if not THE first to complete the Christmas gift and it has sat under the tree for far too long for my liking without me being able to open it!! But I was good and waited and opened it Christmas morning.

How exquisite is this Christmas cupcake board! With detailed holly leaves, tiny cupcakes, icing tube and mixture. I love it, thankyou so much Christel, it is just perfect. And also here is the cutest snowman, isnt he adorable!

Beautifully wrapped as always from Christel with a bag of delicious sweeties in pretty pastel colours. Such a treat for me!!

So a huge Hug to Christel and also to Roasanna for organising such a well run swap!!
I made my swap for Jill and hope she recieved it and liked it?
Here is a mini silver and pink Christmas tree as Jills house is pink! Full of pink candy canes and sweeties.
Then I made a plate of cookies for Santa with cookie recipie, a stack of cookies, and several Christmas cookbooks.
My favourite was the Christmas Carol open book, I really enjoyed making this, it looked very Christmassy.

Hope you got it all Jill, and all had a fantastic Christmas everyone.
