Presenting the presents

                                                         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!
