Sweet swaps from sweet friends and sweet treats to make for Christmas Day.
Which would you like to see first?
Well if you're anything like me and have a sweet tooth then you'll love this.
I saw this magazine and just HAD TO BUY IT...so i thought id share the recipe with you all.

How good does that look?Its Rocky Road Ice Cream Pudding! HELLOOOOOO...come to mama!

And its soooooo easy to make. If you click on the piccie and enlarge it you should be able to read the directions.Otherwise email me and I'll send them to you.

I am SOOOO making this for Christmas day! Then i'll be jogging around the block a few times id say, LOL.

Now for the Sweet Swaps.
I was in 2 Christmas Swap recently. One was hosted within an online group i belong to.
My partner was my gorgeous friend Peta @ PrettyinPink and our theme was The PrettyChic Christmas Stocking Swap Extravaganza. Good one Jules with that name *wink*
Peta and i totally 'get' each others style and we've been friends for a few years now.So i was tickled pink to have her to swap with.
Stupid me forgot to take photos of what i sent to Peta...but here is the beautiful mother load she sent me! I tell you i was hysterical with excitement unwrapping all these goodies!

Wasn't i spoilt! The stocking is the sweetest and softest chenille and is hanging up now awaiting all those prezzies from Santa. Peta you already know how much i ADORE my precious goodies from you and you also know how much i luv ya girl!

The next swap was Priscillas Vintage Stocking Swap. My partner was Laura Ingalls Gunn @ Decor To Adore
I must admit i was very nervous having someone as talented and well known as Laura as my partner. BUT Laura is so lovely and when i received my parcel from her i was hysterical with JOY again!
AND again i forgot to take pics of what i sent Laura (yes its the blonde hair i suppose), and my parcel to her should be on her doorstep any day now.
Here is the package of goodness i received from Laura

For someone who doesn't know me, she got me perfectly. Everything is beautiful as i knew it would be and they are all things i would choose for myself. Thankyou so much Laura from the bottom of my heart to yours.

Now before i go i want to let you all know about a Christmas blog party that my gorgeous friend Sarah is hosting.
Pop on over to Sarahs blog here @ GypsyMermaidLife ,sign up for the fun and get into the Christmas Swing of things!

See you all again in a day or 2.

Love and PINK Kisses

Yes I certainly can see myself jogging around the block quite a few times after I eat my share of that great pudding. Some people are so clever thinking up all these delicious things problem is sall the good things make you fat. All your surprises were lovely what a lovely time of year this is.

The other day I made a rose petal tree and yours looks much better, don't know what I did wrong. I think maybe to many petals! Lets cross our fingers by Valentines day you and I can swap away!!
