(Not so) Secret Santa - Part 1

Question: What do you get when you combine:
  • 10 Christchurch bloggers
  • no more than $10 spent on a gift for your swap partner (gifts could be made, baked or op-shopped)
  • A delicious array of Miriam's baking
  • Spot prizes
  • Lots of laughter 

    Answer: A swap with a difference and a GREAT night!

    Last night a bunch of Christchurch bloggers got together for a Secret Santa evening. (Yes, I know its a bit early for Christmas evenings, but as the majority of us are mothers, we wanted to hold this before the silly season gets into full swing.)

    Along the lines of traditional secret santa, everybody was assigned a person for whom they had to provide a gift. The difference came when after the gifts had been handed out, we had to guess who had provided our gifts.

    There was lots of fun to be had guessing. Spot prizes were handed out and there may have been a few arguments as to who received the BEST gift... it was me by the way!

    So many beautiful and well thought out gifts.

    Come back over the next few days and I'll tell you what I made and what I received.
