Who doesn’t love a good round of Secret Santa?
Liz from A Belle, A Bean, & A Chicago Dog put together a super fun Secret-Santa-ish party for bloggers called Mug Swap! The tradition started last year but this was my first year participating and it was so much fun! The rules included creating a mug with your blog’s name/image/brand etc and shipping it to your match! I created my mug on Zazzle.com! It was so easy to do! Plus they always have good coupons codes floating around the interwebs so you get to make a fun gift without breaking the bank!
After getting my mug created and shipped out, I eagerly awaited the arrival of a mug from my secret Santa! Ok – eagerly awaited isn’t entirely accurate. Its more like I stalked the mailbox! When we arrived home Saturday from the beach, I had a package sitting on my counter (one of our youth at church kept an eye on our dogs and brought in the mail). Once I saw that the package was from Zazzle, I immediately did a happy dance!
I ripped open the box in .3 seconds I delicately opened the box and squealed with excitement as this is what I found:
My wonderful Secret-Mug-Swapper was April from That Nolen Chick! She knew of my love of NCIS and she tried to shove Gibbs in the box for me but he didn’t quite fit! Instead I got an Abby joke! I love my mug! It makes me smile every time I use it!
So glad I got the chance to participate this year! My brain is already trying to come up with ideas for MugSwap2012!
