It was wonderful last year. It is always a surprise on who your secret Santa will be and who you will draw. So this year I signed up for 2 exchanges. I sent two gifts, one to Illinois and another one to Virginia and received 2 gifts, one from Ukraine and another one from Latvia.
It is so much fun to open gifts like this! Both of my senders, Anna and Natasha, did a great job on their presents, packing and presentation. I loved my gifts and felt very special with their lovely hand written notes. Thank you so much, girls, for your wonderful, wonderful presents!
First parcel came from Ukraine. I received 12 (!) beautiful handmade jewelry pendants from Anna (CreationsOfTrueFairy). One was beautiful embroidered and the rest of them were resin & dried flowers.
Anna gathered the plants herself, dried them and even makes the gold framed pendants without the mold! Truly handmade, isn't it? They are so pretty, definitely conversation pieces!
My gift from Natasha (NatkaLV) came from Latvia and it was full of Latvians Christmas treats! I got a bag of cookies, delicious chocolates and even a box of Christmas tea!
It was fun to sample them and also share with my friends during the holidays. Natasha also added a beautiful silver crochet snowflake and, as a special treat, fashionable lace boot cuffs.
