Book Blogger Holiday Swap - Santa Came Early Here

This is my first year participating in the Book Blogger Holiday Swap, and yesterday, I got an unexpected "early early" present from my Secret Santa. (I really have no clue who my Secret Santa was, but he or she made me very happy.  I got a book NEW book that was on my wish list: Margaret Atwood's Cat's Eye, a lovely mini-journal, and a beautiful bookmark and a holiday card. Thank you to my Secret Santa from Virginia and Happy Holidays to you all (who celebrate).  I was not sure (since this is my first year) if there was a Mr. Linky set up to post about our gifts??  I mailed my gift out to one of you wonderful bloggers yesterday. Hope you like what I sent?


I know Cindy posted today about receiving her gifts. Anyone else get an early gift yet? OOPS...I just learned you can link your Holiday Swap Gift Post HERE (thanks so much). If you are participating, have you mailed your gift yet? Hope everyone is as happy as me.

  5. What nice gifts you got!

    I mailed out my gift package today! I included my return address on the package, but not the name of my blog. This is my first year doing this, so I'm not really sure how it works. :-)
