Back in December I signed up to Redhead Reverie's holiday card swap. I cannot tell you how excited I was. I have watched so many American films where the family get together to have the family photo taken ready for their annual Christmas card. I was all over this, much to James' annoyance hehee.
We both sent off our cards with a couple of gifts bought locally. The gifts weren't the original intention but as I like in the UK and she lives in the USA it seemed like a lovely idea.
I received my parcel yesterday, and although it was for Christmas I was so excited to open it up to see what was inside.
I love the little snowman, in the typical black and gold colours, go Hawkeye's - if you check out the Redhead Reverie blog you will totally understand this. The holiday card was fab again in black and gold, with a family update on the reverse. One of the chocolate lolly's has already been eaten it was delish, and I cannot wait to try the popcorn.
It was a great and simple swap, I love being able to have my very own holiday card and gathering together a little taste of London to send across the ocean.
Back tomorrow with an update of the weekend.
