Wishing you all a beautiful Christmas

On this wonderful Christmas day I want to show you my Christmas in July presents that arrived just in time for Christmas! Theme: Gingerbread men (O:

(Please click on the photo to get a better look!)

At the beginning of this year I joined the Christmas in July swap that was organized by Stephanie and Linda. Darlene was my secret swap partner, who would make me presents that I should have received in July. Unfortunately, her package did not make it here. How very sad, not for me, but for the presents Darlene had made )O: In August Darlene contacted me, wondering if her Christmas in July presents had ever made it to my home. She wanted to make me new presents right away, feeling bad about it. I told her to wait for at least two months, having experience in parcels reaching me too late. One of the parcels that got lost did eventually get to me at the beginning of this month after 4.5 months, but unfortunately Darlene's never came.

Darlene didn't let me know she had made me a lovely package again, so you can imagine how very suprised and happy I was, when her second parcel did arrive (((O:
Look at the lovely table topper she made. It's as though it was made for our table and it suits my red Christmas decorations perfectly!
And look at the wonderful stocking and the cute gingerbread men ornaments. One is hanging in our tree and the other is at the top of a garland.

Thank you so very much, dear Darlene, for having made me a new 'Christmas in July' parcel with such lovely presents!!!

PS: If ever the first parcel arrives, I will let you know ;o)

Although you didn't receive your first package in July...your second one arrived with perfect timing. What very sweet gifts from Darlene and even sweeter that she remade and resent gifts just for you. Merry Christmas.

Wat lief om een tweede pakje te maken. Het zijn wel hele leuke dingetjes die ze je heeft gestuurd. Ik hoop dat het tweede pakje toch nog boven water komt.

Liebe Simone,
oooooh, wie wunderschön !!! Ich freue mich, dass das Paket von Darlene angekommen ist und dass sie nicht aufgegeben hat.
Hoffentlich kommt das erste Päckchen doch noch eines Tages bei dir an oder zu Darlene zurück, es kann doch nicht verschwunden sein.
Ganz liebe Grüße an dich, deine Jutta
