Secret Santa Reveal

Hi all, I just wanted to share some fabulous things I got recently. She's a Sassy Lady and The Bug Bytes Design teams got together and we had a Secret Santa.

We had to include bits and pieces that we thought our recipient would like, include something home made if we could. Our budget was $15 - and here in Canada it was really difficult to find good bargains, but I think my Secret Santa enjoyed what I managed to include.

Now, my Secret Santa was Pam from The Bug Bytes and Papillon Digital Designs.  And oh my goodness she sent me so many wonderful gifts.  And I'm going to share all of them with you. (If you click on the photos it will make them larger)

Firstly, the Christmas card that she sent me, and it contained the most wonderful little gift tags, all hand made.

  And it opens up like a box.

And inside were these delightful little tags.

Next up came this beautiful home made large Christmas tag - its beautiful. And some homemade soap, a bag stamped and coloured by Pam.


Then some fabulous ribbon, butterflies, crocheted flowers and some beautiful pins.  Along side that is a huge pile of Minds Eye die cuts - there are so many of them.


Next up - yes there's more!  Flower embellishments and also a beautiful bookmark and some fabulous metal embellishments.


Then there is a wonderful stamp set and a fabulous collections of rub-ons.


And still more, these lovely girly embellishments - will be perfect for a friends daughter for her birthday card.

And lastly but by no means least, were theses fabulous Mind Eyes papers and beautiful ribbon and embellishments to get me ready for Valentines Day.


Thank you Pam so much - you also have an eye for a bargain, because with the budget given you got so much stuff.  Thank you.

Isn't she awesome my friends.  My apologies for the long post but I had to show all these lovely goodies that I am so going to look forward to using in the new year.

Also, I wanted to share with you the item I made for my Secret Santa to receive.  It is my first ever project using Modge Podge and I can see me using it more in the future.

Here is what I made for Jen from Java Jen Creations.  I tried to include elements from her blog, so flowers, scrolls and music and of course Java Jen.  Also sent her some lovely crafty goodies and a Christmas card.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy crafting.
