Holly Bloggy Exchange

First of all, I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!!  This year we decided to participate in the Teacher Holly Bloggy Exchange.  It has been nice meeting new friends and teachers through this exchange.  Below is a link to the Holly Bloggy Exchange.
  
  
I sent a gift to Kimberly Santana in Florida.  Kimberly is a country girl at heart, wife, animal lover, crafter, pinterest addict, blogger and teacher.  She loves the outdoors. She also enjoys reading, pedicures, Target, traveling and photography.  She likes to bake and enjoys the smells of freshly baked holiday goodies and candles.  She is a blogger at The Learning Tree.  Click below to link to her blog.

I knew right away that I just had to go to one of our local gift stores.  The store is called "Something Special".  I even took a picture of the window before entering.  It was beautifully decorated.
 

I searched for the perfect gift.  I finally had an idea.  I was going to get her something that embraced the kitchen and her love of baking.  I purchased a super cute oven-mitt.  I stuffed it with a candle called "Cabin Fever" to allow the scents of the country into her home in Florida.  I also added a nail file because she loves pedicures, and of course a spatula and notepad for baking.  Below is the gift before it was wrapped.


Then, I stuffed everything into the oven-mitt and added some tissue paper.  I think it looks super cute!!  I sure home Kimberly likes it!!


I received a package from Jennifer from The First Grade Dream blog.  You will find a link to her blog below.

I was so excited to open this package!!  After opening, I got many goodies.  Some hand-sanitizer (every teacher needs that!!), a nail file, Sugar: sweet pea lotion (I call my boys sweet peas all the time!!), lip balm, and candle warmer scents!!

Here is a picture of the goodies I opened!!  Yeah!!  Thank you, thank you!!


Thank you so much, Jennifer!!  I LOVE the lotion.  I call my two boys "sweet peas" all the time.  They're my Sweet Peas!!



This was so much fun!!  I hope to do this again next year.  All of us teacher bloggers need to stick together!!  :)  Merry Christmas!!

Christmas Possibilities,
