Christmas Stocking Swap


kids-stocking-swap

All four of my daughter’s and myself were able to participate in a Stocking Swap.   The girl’s had alot of fun picking out the Christmas fabric to make stockings, and gathering  the stocking stuffers for their new friends.  While shopping, we discovered that Target had lots of their “dollar spot”  items at 75% off!  what a deal!

My Official partner was Lisa @ Mommyof2g1b’s Wonderful World

I sent Snowman Chocolates, Snowman Magnet, Snowman ornament, Snowman Stickers, Snowman Nesting Dolls, Cute Snowman Soap,  A little Snowman box with needlepoint thread inside, Recipe cards with snowmen on the bottom, A snowman notepad,  and Lisa’s favorite is the adorable Snowman Apron that I  made! (she LOVES snowpeople!)
