Christmas Ornament Swap

Hi, thanks for stopping by on such a
busy week.  Can you believe Christmas
is next week?

This year I participated in my first bloggers swap.

The Swap was organized by Erica over at 
The rules of the Swap were that we
were to make two ornaments and a tag
in a kitchen Christmas theme.
Include a favorite Christmas cookie recipe,
and anything else we wished, 
perhaps something sweet!

I was partnered with 
Trisha at American Honey Home .

Today I'm excited to share with you
what I received from Trisha.

Take a look...

First, Trisha had written a Christmas
message inside this cute little
card with a baking theme.
Look at that adorable little apron
complete with utensils in the pocket.
and cookies on a baking sheet beside.

Trisha chose to decorate two mini kitchen utensils
a grater and a wire whisk...

I like how she wrapped the whisk handle.
The Santa at the top has a cord for hanging.

And look at that sweet little gingerbread man
on the grater.

Next she included a decorated bingo card.
I love the turquoise and red color combination.

Stamped with an Eiffel Tower, Joyeux Noel

a little wreath around the "O"

and beautiful red felt roses in the corner.

The recipe she sent is for  Sugar Butter Cookies.
Don't they sound delicious!  
Can't wait to try them.

Then she tucked in some
fun extra goodies...
like Christmas straws
and bakers popular right now.

Some yummy peppermint chocolate
and red reindeer Christmas socks!

She must know I'm a cupcake baker
or had seen one of my cupcake posts
because she sent these 
gorgeous Mary Engelbreit cupcake liners.

Thank you Trisha for
all the great gifts!!
It was fun being your Swap Partner.

And Thank you Erica for the Party.

A Very Merry Christmas
to both of you and your families!!!

Christmas Hugs,
