Thanks swap buddy!
My swap buddy was Nanajoyer! I love each and every one of my gifts, they are perfect!
I may have messed up the order because I was so excited and ripped open the presents so quickly, but here goes:
xs: A Calm the F*ck Down adult coloring book - I love the f*ck out of this!
s: A container of circle pendant blanks - I can't wait to make jewelry with these!
m: A Disney Thomas Kinkade coloring book and colored pencils - This book is stunning!
L: a Walmart GC - always appreciated!
xl: A charging wallet - I have never seen these before! So cool! I am always running out of power on my cell. This is brilliant!
Extras: a pair of fuzzy socks, 3 packs of my favorite peppermint gum, peppermint candies and a nice and warm hat!

Thank you so much Nanajoyer! You did a wonderful job! Merry Christmas to you and your family!

My sweep box came
okey dokeey here is what my sweep buddy from Montana sent to me:
Xl gift: omg omg omg. marabou chocolate from Sweden
My most favorite edible in the world!!!!! Linda did you send to Poland for this???? I couldn’t believe I was the person with the polish gift��
Large gift was my red silk and black nighty set that my daughter saw when I posted to Facebook this morning and wants one just like it too. Not mine for sure. I love it so much. All I have been wearing to bed are my sons old reds kind T-shirt’s.

medium gifts: I had three I think if I read the card correctly
An adorable RED coton de tulear pupparoos shirt.

My favorite color is red too. Perfect yet again. Thanks so much

My other medium gifts were this adorable pupparoos mat that my Molly girl would not get off of for me to take a picture. Seriously, you don’t like no pups I don’t likes you.
Wonderful gift for a pupparoos momma. A trilogy of Nora Roberts Witch series that I have never read. Perfect for my online book club anyone can join starting i January if you would like to join me.

Small gift: hot cocoa, festive nail polishes in snowman form and pink aloe Sox from the breast cancer store. I love these and my twin is now five years cancer free from triple negative breast cancer!!! These Sox are a celebration to nancy.

XSmall gift: all this home made white and dark homemade chocolate from Montana with Carmel. Yum that ones gone. Also purple honey made in Montana for my morning tea. I love things from your state.

many more extras with beautiful tags such as coffee from Montana treats for the pupparoos in which Toby detected as soon as I opened the box. He found right where to go to get them too. Thank you so much from all of us. I love this swap and you paid so much attention to detail.
Pictures to follow.

Glad you liked your swap items Barb
Your Polish part should arrive in a day or two - it's not really Polish but the Etsy shop it came from is in Poland (a big surprise for me when I couldn't read any part of the shipping info). Just happy to make your day - shopping was great fun. Linda

Thank you KarenAnne!
Just opened my swap package from Karen and it is wonderful! Box was filled with edible goodies including a big bag of Lindor milk chocolate truffles (always heavenly the way they melt in your mouth), a bag of Butterfield's tangy peach hard candy, chocolate covered almonds, Oreo Eggs (adorably packaged cream-filled candies with Oreo pieces in them-I have never seen these before but anything with Oreos and chocolate must be tasty), and a container of spicy peanuts (already ate a few and they are hot!)

A beautiful silky green Raindeer scarf - it will look great for the Holidays (and all winter in the snow around here).

A red pot strainer - I don't know what happened to my old one but I get tired of dragging out the colander everytime I need to strain a little bit.

7 assorted wax melts for my warmer (used daily to keep the house from smelling stale in the winter). The scents are homey ones I love like pumpkin pie, vanilla cookie, apple pie, etc. Just the type I love.

Thank you Karen - it is all perfect.

Happy Holidays!
