My little spot!
OK so I opened my parcel of awesomeness today I managed to squeeze it all into 2 photos!
Calendar (how amazing is this):
Parcels (loving all the pink, each tag has a christms fact on it too - I can't help but squish the parcels):1st December! PINK STOCKING!!!!!
And chocolates yum! "People spend an average of 2hours and 27minutes wrapping christmas presents each year" - I'm a proper cheat when it comes to wrapping, anything that looks good with a bow on or fits in a gift bag remains unwrapped hehe!December 2nd and 3rd
2nd - pin board to keep a track of all my christmas facts (notice the snowflakes eeee) 3rd - christmas cards (from one of my favourite charities I might add - Macmillan)
Facts - The worlds biggest christmas tree was 76ft!
If you received all the gifts in the 12 days of christmas you would get 364 presents!December 4th and 5th
Alabama was the first state to declare Christmas a national (state) holiday in 1836
Gorgeous soap and photoframe now awaiting photo!December 6th
Jingle Bells was originally written for Thanksgiving!
Beaaaaaauuuutiful sparkly fingerless mitts that I'm wearing as I type!December 7th
Ok ok so I cheated a little, it's not quite midnight but I knew I wouldn't have time in the morning and atleast I'm keeping up to date!
Snacks for me and my hamster and a cute action shot of Lily before she smuggled her gnaw away into the depths of her den! This was actually JUST what the doctor ordered too.
Right I'm back on track after 4 consecutive days of 12.5hr shifts wooo, I was so busy aswell!
I can't remember in which order these all came out but I got a little fact for each of them.
8th - More than 1000000 acres of land have been planted with christmas trees
9th - Bing crosby's a white christmas is the best selling christmas song
10th - Hallmark introduced the first christmas cards in 1915 (and now I'm cursing them because I can't remember who I'm supposed to write them too, so I have a pile of 60 infront of me and I'm racking my brains to think who I forgot)
11th - charles dickens wrote a Christmas carol in just 6 weeks
12th - be careful of holly berries, theyre poisoness during the christmas season 1.76 billion candy canes will be made!
13th - 1 in 3 men wait until christmas eve to finish shopping
14th - santa's elves are a modernization of the nature folk of pagan religions
and somehow I seem to have lost 15's number, how I don't know as I've managed to hang on to every other tag!
Christmas wrapping accessories and old cards to make tags which have proven very useful indeed
Beautiful beautiful hand knitted peach scarf and an air freshner for my new car which has now arrived woohooo!
A recipe folder with a recipe for cheesy christmas stars (right up my street!)...held open with my foot for photo purposes
Cup holder and fluffy pink hamster!!! The cup holder came with 2 hot chocs and 2 kit kats and was cleverly packaged in a costa coffee cup, ingenious!
