Bloggy Christmas Gathering

A while ago Juliet emailed all the Chch bloggers she had emails for and asked them if they’d like to do a Christmas Swap.

Hello? Yes Please!

So on Friday night we got together and swapped anonymous presents (until we had a competition to guess who gave to who).

There was a $10 limit and an encouragement to be creative, thrifty, crafty.

This is what I got from the delightful Kirsty – I am in love with the fabric and the tray will be undergoing a transformation.

And also this very exciting stuff to laminate fabric with….

Also Juliet gave me a present for hosting and she made me my own labels – insert squeal here – now my creations will be so professional looking!

I love making friends and I love that one of the things blogging has given me is more precious people to share my life with.

Thanks Juliet, Deb, Max, Nin, Sophie, KirstyHolly and Hannah (we missed you Widgey! – sporting commitments)

    Oh, and my link is linky to Max – not to be petty. Haha

    1. oops! I’ll fix that now. Thanks for the heads up!

  3. You girls always have so much fun!! A brilliant idea too 🙂


  4. Ahhh the Christchurch bloggers are right up there with the Whangarei girls for being completely onto it.
    Make sure you link up your bloggy meetup posts to my bloggy meetups linky lovely miriam!!

    PS I am still hoping/wanting to come to CHCH with gail next year when she is back.

  5. I cannot wait to see the transformation! It was such a fun night!

  6. It WAS a fun night wasn’t it!?! Can’t wait to do it again (hee hee!)

    By the way, do you want the design that I used for your labels? You are welcome to it if you want to make some more (better) labels in the future… I worked out what went wrong when I made yours- I FOLLOWED THE INSTRUCTIONS! It works FAR FAR better when you totally ignore them!
