Christmas Gifts From Friends

I think sometimes people are afraid of making handmade gifts for fear that the recipient might not cherish as much as the giver.  I have to say that those who understand the time and effort it takes to create handmade gifts cherish them more than anything.  I told you yesterday that I had such a great time at my annual Christmas Party on Saturday, but yesterday I finally got to open the sweet gifts that my awesome stampers brought me.  I loved the cards and gifts that they each brought, I have GOT to show you what I got!!

The first one I have to share is the ADORABLE Desk Calendar, seriously ADORBS!!!

I can’t express it enough, how much I enjoy and appreciate my stampers!!
