Getting in the Christmas spirit… already!
Hi folks – no recipe today because I’m outrageously lazy (well – I have my parents-in-law visiting!) so I’ve been rather busy alas. My chestnut recipe will have to wait a few more days – probably I will post it after my anniversary celebration dish on the 31st of October. For today though I wanted to announce something which I’ve been wanting to set up for a very long time.
I was hoping to do it in a slightly more “cool” way, but, well – a lot has happened this year. Anyway, it’s almost the end of October. That of course means that it will soon be November, and then the holiday season is upon us! I thought it might be fun to run a little Secret Santa gift exchange this year; you get sent a gift from another blogger, and in return send a gift to a different blogger. I think it’s going to be a load of fun and a wonderful way of bringing our community even closer.
It would be great if you wanted to take part, but some entry requirements apply. I need a way of keeping this fun and mitigating any concerns people may have about signing up. Full details as well as a FAQ page can be viewed in the new dedicated Secret Santa section.
After everyone has received their gift I’m hoping to compile a gallery of all the awesomeness to show everyone who decided not to take part what you missed out on!
Have a wonderful day everyone – see you back soon – and I hope you’ll join me in making this holiday season that little bit extra special! (Plus, you get to see my hilarious attempts at “art” as I design little graphics to go with it!)
