Bloggy Goodness for the Upcoming Holidays

Is it really Monday again? And so we begin again the constant circle of days and events. It is rather chilly here this morning even for October. I refuse to turn on the heat though. Maybe next month.

On to my bloggy goodness for the holidays. Did you say it's a little early for Christmas? Technically, I think there is right around 65 days until Christmas. It's the holiday you know is coming yet always sneeks up on you. So, I have two bloggy holiday events to tell you about in case you may want to participate.

In fact, you may have seen the buttons on my sidebar. (You know. The one you're supposed to be checking everyday :) They are both holiday related swaps and sponsored by two different blogs.

The first is the Ornament Exchange sponsored by Pampering Beki. I love this one. I think it's such an interesting idea. The swap is with Ornaments. You can either buy one or handmake one. Doesn't matter, and they don't have to be two expensive either-$10. I love ornaments so this is perfect for me. It reminds me of when I was a kid. My mom would get me a new ornament every year. So, head on over and sign up to join. It's really easy because there is a Mr. Linky. Hurry though, because signups end October 25th.

My second bloggy goodness to tell you about is Kori's Secret Santa Shindig. I actually found this one the day of the blogathon. It's been awhile since I've done a gift swap, and I really do love them. Seriously, who doesn't love to get a gift?! This is fun because it can be anything. She will send you a list of likes and dislikes even allergies and you can go from there. I think this one will be fun for me because it will definitely be a surprise. I can't peek. Plus, it will probably be the only present I get I will like. Am I really that hard to shop for?! Signups don't end until next week so you have a little bit of time. Just when you head over there make sure you let her know I(aimee/jewelstreet) sent you.
These swaps are a great way to meet your blogging buddies and make new ones. I know a lot of you out there are some crafty individuals so you could make something for presents. Don't lie. I've seen the craftiness. Click on each of the pics if you want a quick straight to the swap. Well, I'm off for today. Lots of new things to make and a house to clean. Oh, Monday... Why must you come every week?!

We had to turn our heat on this weekend--this morning was only 34 degrees, although it has warmed up to about 54.

Thanks for the swap info--wanted to let you know the Secret Santa link in the post did not work.

The one on the side bar did not work either!

I might have to get in on that ornament swap action. Sounds like a whole lot of fun and will give me a chance to be creative...and for a good cause!
