What a joy it has been to participate once again in the Christmas In The Country gift exchange. This year the swap was hosted my Jamie from This Uncharted Rhoade, Laurie from CountryLINKed, Lara from My Other More Exciting Self, and Kriby from 15009 Farmhouse. The connections that I have made through this wonderful community of Agvocates and bloggers has opened many doors and kindled many friendships for me. Christmas in the Country is one of these opportunities to connect, and it is always so much fun to be a part of.
This year I received a gift from Crystal Kellner who blogs over at Chasing-Saturdays. The first thing that struck me when opening her card and reading her letter, was how much she loves to share her faith. This too is important to me, so it is always awesome to connect with others that share the same faiths. For the gift exchange she sent me a fun journal, a desktop picture frame, two Christmas kitchen towels, and a bag of Hershey's Kisses (who doesn't love chocolate?!). These gifts are all perfect, and I cannot wait the put them to use. Actually, the girls already dug into the chocolate and the towels were well used while hosting Christmas dinner. The journal is smaller in size which will be perfect to throw into my purse and use for note taking at the conferences I will be attending later this month.
Thank you so much Crystal for the wonderful gifts!
It was wonderful to connect with you and I cannot wait to get to know you better through social media. And you are right, Jesus is the reason for this season!
I had the blessing of being paired up with the one man participating in this swap. I sent a gift to Brian from Lil' A Farm. It was a bit of a challenge coming up with gifts to send to a guy, especially since I am crafter and enjoy sending homemade gifts, however it was also a lot of fun. Head on over to his blog and see what I sent him, or head on over to any of the host's pages and checkout all of the fun gifts exchanged across the country this Christmas season.
Thank you to Jamie, Laurie, Lara and Kirby for hosting a fun exchange. I look forward to participating again next year!
