The last month of 2012, boy that snuck up on us quickly didn't it?

Here's the Little Sweetpea's advent calender, Little Miss is struggling with the concept of only ONE chocolate a day bless her :)
December brings us advent and along with quite a few others, I signed up for LaaLaa's Advent Swap.
I was partnered with Sherry and my parcel of advent goodies arrived just over a week ago.
I'm not going to post everyday, I shall do a weekly round up.
This is the box of stripey goodies I sent Sherry
And so far, I have opened 4 little parcels

Paper nail file holder

Writing pencils

Farm animal cookie cutters

Pretty green heart charm
Hope you are all having a lovely week

  7. Hi Victoria..I have been reading about the advent swap on other blogs today too and it looks such great fun and everyone has sent and received such lovely gifts!
    Ah, my girls used to think the same about only one chocolate each day in the calendar..it's a bit hard to explain that one, isn't it?...and Xmas has appeared too quickly for me too..I don't know where 2012 has gone!
    Hope you're having a lovely week and thank you for calling by today,
