And the mail rolled in...

This Christmas was made extra special with the assistance of a couple new blog friends.  New blog friends that sent some awesome holiday packages my way that consisted of items so perfect for me you'd think we are everyday real world friends.

A few months ago I signed up for a 12 Days of Christmas swap hosted by Chaotic Goddess Swaps.  I was paired up with Kenzie from Life and Lemons.  This girl seriously rocks.  We are so similar which made it super easy to shop for her.. and everything she sent me was just so darn cute!  There are no other words.. so here is the photographic evidence:


The second swap I signed up for via this here blog was the Secret Santa swap hosted by Wife of a Sailor.  Again so fun to shop for the blogger I got to be Santa for.. and even more fun to get mail back from my Santa, who also goes by Lisa and blogs over at Must be Doin' Somethin' Right.  [That is such a classic love song.. btw.]  This lovely lady sent me two of my favorite things, chocolate and a Kristin Hannah book [best author EVER.].  I'm Lisa's newest follower and I seriously LOVE her blog.

And last but certainly not least... the Holiday Card Exchange I hosted right here at Somewhere Over the Camo.  Almost everyone sent cards.. and it was so exciting having them come in over the last month.  I also signed up for a card exchange hosted elsewhere and together this display was created in our kitchen:
If you signed up and did not send cards... I will be e-mailing you in the next week.

Happy Weekend beauties!  Last one of 2012!


Always,
Amanda

  4. My cards ARE going out!! They will of course be super late!! I've had them ready for like two weeks, but the husband packed them up in the moving stuff and I JUST found them yesterday!! Sorry about them being late, but they will all get them!! ;-) I think I have only gotten about 4 of them so far.
