Se abre la caja/Laatikko on avattu/Sa okno/Mae'r blwch yn agor/La boite est ouverte

The title above is the translation of "the box is opened" in Spanish, Finnish, Slovak, Welsh and French.  Today starts my 25 days of Christmas exchange.  My box came from Nancy in San Diego and it was so fun to slice into that white USPS flat rate box tonight. 

My first gift was this adorable little notebook which I am going to label as my 2012 Stitching Journal.  I plan to use it to finally track my stitching for the coming year so I can remember when I started pieces and the materials I used.  

Last night I slowly started to put out my Christmas decorations including this primitive little tree that my sister gifted me with last year.  It's looking a bit bare at the moment but if you look closely at the foot of it, there are lots more wonderful little packages to be opened - 24 more in fact!  If they're anything like today's goodie, I'm in for a real spoiling.

I'm off to find my labeler so I can tag my new little notebook and then I'm going to drag up another box from the basement and get to "Christmas-fying" my house.  That bare tree looks pitiful!

This is the kind of exchnage that I'd really love as well - a sort of advent calendar. Have fun opening your little gifties.
