Ok, the title isn't very bright.
In school we drew lots to exchange Christmas presents and we gave it to eachother today. Phew, it was hard choosing it! Due to weather/sickness/work I couldn't buy it until this Sunday. On that day I asked my sister, who was about to go choosing her presents for school, to buy mine too. I asked her to buy one pink poodle (yup, the girl I got to give present too, kinda likes things like this, or so I was told).
But there weren't poodles left in that shop.
So she bought a camel.
Because it was curly like a poodle.
I don't deny that the camel is cute, but it's not exactly the thing you would give to a person, who'd like a pink curly poodle!
So I went hunting myself. That's what I got her in the end. No poodles indeed, but still:
The candle and the soap (that in the little bag is soap) smell so AWESOME, I wanted to eat them! Just for one night they spent in my room, she smelled like chocolate and vanilla. I got them from Refan, a shop, that really encourages eating candles and soaps with those gorgeous smells. (I have to confess that all the time I was hoping that the person who had to give me a present, would buy me something from there... Nyaah, she didn't, so I decided to treat myself with a cocoa soap bar ^////^)
We ( a group of girls in school) usually give eachother small presents too. We didn't talk it this year but this is what I bought for them.
I have to say I'm very pleased with how it turned out! I got the holiday print patterns form I russian site, Ilovehandmade.ru, that is always feeding me with craft ideas and supplies.
I really love those snow balls! So you can imagine how happy I was when I received one too. Here are the presents I got:
The owl is just awesome.
Aand, as an excuse for the crappy photos, I want to say, that I don't have a light bulb in my room for a week or so now (and I hope tomorrow an electrician will finally come, else I will have a very dark Christmas) and I'm using old and crappy (not to mention ugly) desk lamp.
So Christmas is just around the corner, and I have only one day school till the vacation! For now I wish you merry preparations, if you like me, aren't done yet!
