Have you heard of Pocket Letter Swaps?  They are so much fun.  Deb @Garage Sale Gal arranges these and picks a blogging partner for you to share a page with.  Then, you do a pocket page with the theme and needless to say this one was Christmas.

My dear blogging partner was Linda @ A La Carte.  She and I have been friends for several years so I was delighted to have her as a partner.

The top photo shows her creative page.  I've only done two of these so mine is not nearly as cute as her.

The back pages are just as cute and the pockets contain all kinds of goodies - stickers, etc.

She also gifted me with a darling Christmas hand towel and a cute little owl ornament.

Thank you so much Linda and Deb for arranging the swap.

Days are getting short leading up to the big holiday.  Mine will be rather quiet this year.  I have decided that I'm going to paint all of the insides of my closets at the new house on Christmas Day.  Tiff and family go to her other granddad's for the day and have invited me.  I decided I would stay home with Bella and get some work done.  We will have our gift exchange on Thursday.

On Sunday, my entire family will meet for lunch and to visit.  It's quite a crew!  

Hope you are enjoying this blessed season and remember the reason for the season.




  1. Judy, I admire that you are making your own choices and plans. I'm sure it's harder than you make it sound. Sending you hugs and admiration!
