Merry Christmas to everyone around the world. I hope you had/have a great day. If you don’t celebrate Christmas, I hope you still have great holidays and an awesome 2016!
My Christmas was spent with my mum and dad. Thankfully it wasn’t too hot (a typical Australian Christmas is usually icky heat and trying to stay cool). I was lucky to receive a new drawing tablet and some awesome gifts from friends that did the christmas gift exchange with me. Included below is a lot of images of gifts and what was included in the cards that I sent this year (all photos are from my phone, because I was feeling a bit lazy ahha).
Gifts from mum & Dad
Drawing tablet, owl charm, owl door sign, selfie stick (hahah), owl stickers & Fererro’s.
Owl door sign, although she looks a little bit too friendly. Hehe.
Owl charm. This is really cute. I think he might be missing his nose, but I don’t mind. >.<
Wacom Intuos (medium) drawing tablet. My first drawing, was of course Christmas inspired.

Christmas cards that I have received. ?
Now, in alphabetical order…
Gifts from Christine
So many cute things! Puzzle Cards, earphones, plush, mini scissors, phone pouch, charm plush, little sticker gold plated thing, charm plush, lucky cat figure, mini panda notebook, roll friends eraser, butterfly purse, Shaun the sheep keychain and mini hello kitty notebook.
This plush is just so adorable.
I couldn’t resist having a mini photo-shoot with it haha.
Gifts from Claire
So much awesome. Colour rocks, hello kitty stationery holder, large notebook, deer charm, handmade bracelet, handmade bookmark, strawberry, butterfly charm thingys, colour sticky notes, under construction journal, owl card, leaf charms, owl charm, mini fox notebook & a cute string lighting thing, which I had wanted and never got one. She even included the batteries which was nice.
You can see the light string. I need to try and set it up in my bookshelf so it looks pretty!
Gift from Crystal
Really lovely earrings and K necklace. ?
Gifts from Georgie
A deeply thoughtful Happiness Journal and jewellery (see below)
Lots of pretty earrings and a wise old owl necklace.
All the earrings!
Gifts from Sarah
Very cool owl stickers, owl card (with candy), rainbow healing candle, white duck that changes colours, cupcake stationery set, bath fizzer set, sprinkles ring and ice-cream card.
This duck has serious personality and I love it. ?
It was so exciting to open these gifts and find so many wonderful things. It was a lot of fun doing the exchange this year and I hope that the gifts I sent were enjoyed. ?
What did I send in my Christmas cards this year? Well, I am glad you asked (?). I love to make my cards fun and include some extras. So, have a peek.
This was one of the postcards that I designed for this year. I wanted something that was simple and cute.
This was the second postcard that I designed. I included one of each postcard.
My avatar stickers
Personal business card thing
It’s not technically a business card, but it’s in that format (kind of). It was just basically an extra thing I wanted to include.
Two different owl charms.
I included several of these in each card.
I thought it would be a lot of fun to include stickers, but I had to be able to fit them in an envelope. I had to end up folding these because they were bigger then I thought.
Cute sticky notes
I had a number of different cute sticky notes (I had them sent at random, and also sent them out at random).
Mini memo notes
Maybe it’s just me and my crazy stationery addiction, but I thought it would be a nice treat to have a mini memo as well.
The smaller items were placed in a cello bag. I think these are such adorable bags to use for gifts. Normally they are used for food.
And that my friends, is a wrap. ?
1. How was your Christmas?
