Christmas was in July!

One of my Yahoo groups had a "Christmas in July" swap a few weeks ago. I was a little tardy in sending my package to my sweet partner Susan, but she has it now, so I want to show you what she sent me.
Susan was incredibly generous and sent so many goodies!

There is the post-it's note holder made from an acrylic photo frame - love that! Some magnets made from clear flat marbles, a decorated pen (perfect to use with my Christmas Notebook), a couple of Santa ornaments, a Santa note pad, and Santa cookie cutter with a handtowel that has a yummy cookie recipe printed on it. I know Susan made the magnets and post-it holder - an idea I am going to copy for some neat gifts for coworkers - and she did a great job. I love having things made by my email friends. Even though we've never met, we have a little part of each other when we do these exchanges.
This was a very fun swap and I was glad to trade a little Christmas spirit with Susan. I hope it helped ease the oppression of the hot summer a bit. Oh, and it freaked out my husband a little bit when I asked him to reach down my Christmas craft bin from the top closet shelf in the middle of summer! :o)

Hi Tammy! What a wonderful package from Susan. I bet everyone is feeling the season who did this swap.

It has been a while since I visited your blog and WOW! I love what you did to change the page. How cute is that bird and the colors are all so perfect together. Did you create this all yourself? If so, you are amazing!

Hugs ~
