Yes, it's September, so I'm tentatively thinking about Christmas, specifically, Christmas presents. If I pull my finger out, there may be some 'handmade' gifts winging their way to people this year, which I'm quite excited about.
I'm also very excited about this - Jo at Through The Keyhole is organising a 'Twelve Days Of Christmas' Present Swap, and I've signed up for it. All the details are on her blog, but basically, she will match everyone up with a swap buddy, to whom you then send 12 presents. Wrapped individually, they will open one present a day, from the 25th Dec through to the 5th January. Gifts can be handmade, but if purchased should cost no more that £2, or the whole lot should cost no more than £20. So nothing extravagant, but there are still lots of nice thoughtful little gifts that cost less than a couple of quid, and I've already started thinking about things I could buy. However, I'll wait until I know who my swap buddy is - we'll have to swap addresses obviously, and I'm assuming that we might introduce ourselves and maybe say a little bit about the kind of things we like. Or maybe we'll just say "surprise me!" Either way, I'm very excited to be taking part.
Thank you to Jo for organising it.
