Have I ever told you all about my love for gifts? I know most people love gifts. But I’m the person who will make you feel like a true ROCK STAR! There is something about receiving an unexpected present that makes my heart soar.

The Christmas season is one that I love although I don’t decorate. But the birth of Christ is our focus. Thus, we exchange only a gift or two. Over the years I have loved this change for my family. It requires that we give each gift thought and meaning. And well…I just love it.

This post is truly carefree. I am going to share the contents of a package I received from the UK through a Tea Swap on Raverly. I also received a fantastic gift that I’m using right. now. 🙂 Lastly I’ll share some of my purchases from Black Friday.

Yes…yarn is included…

I’m probably the only person you know that use Black Friday and Cyber Monday to buy yarn. LOL!

Let’s get going…
