Advent Calendar Swap!

Hello dear readers! 

I know, I know, it's not even Halloween yet - but christmas is approaching fast! I'm already looking forward to it! 

There's a saying in German which says "Vorfreude ist die schönste Freude", which translates loosely to "Joy is always in the forecast". As a kid, this proved true for me with Advent Calendars. Every morning in December I would be allowed to open one little present, mostly chocolates of course, and the day I opened the last present, christmas had finally arrived! You can't imagine how many times I counted the little packages that were still there, the excitement rising when I counted fewer and fewer...

I wanted to share this feeling of joy and anticipation with you, my dear blog readers, through a swap which you can find here! Please fill out the form with as much information as you'd like to, it's easier to find little gifts for you if your christmas angel (can you spot that little one down there in the picture? That's our christmas angel. It even has a small bag which may be filled with mail, or candies or presents... but shhh, it's a secret!) knows more about you than just your name. You have time to sign up until the 31st of october and should send your calendar to your assigned partner latest November 17th, so that it'll arrive in time for December 1st.

Are you in?

I'm really looking forward to this and I hope you do as well :)

Alles Liebe,
Caddi

  1. Sounds like fun! I've never done one before though, so I'll have to do some research before I can decide whether or not I can sign up. >_<

    1. It's a lot of fun! I love opening a little present each day, and picking them for someone else also is lots of fun! If you don't have that many ideas, don't worry - if you fill all the slots with candy, postcards and bookmarks it's fine! So.... if I were you, I'd sign up :)

  2. Hey Caddi,
    das klingt wirklich toll. :) Muss man extra was dafür basteln oder kann man die Dinge auch einfach verpacken und zusammenhängen oder so in der Art? Bin nicht so kreativ. ;)

    Liebe Grüße!

    1. Hey Marie,
      ist nicht so schlimm wenn Du nicht so kreativ bist :) Du kannst auch einfach so ein paar Sachen zusammensuchen und verpacken - es stehen ja zum Beispiel immer alle auf deutsche Schokolade und Gummibärchen (die gibts ja auch in so kleinen Packs, zum Beispiel die von Rittersport als Schoko und diese Riesentüten für Gummibärchen), oder Du guckst beim Nanu Nana (zum Beispiel noch mal diese Labels... :))... Solange es am Ende 24 Päckchen sind ist alles gut :)
      Liebe Grüße!

  3. Hi Caddi! This sounds so much fun, so I want to join this swap! But I'm not sure what exactly I have to do. I don't think we have such advent calender here in Japan, so do I make a calender myself or how should I prepare what I am sending? Hope you can tell me a little more detail about it! Thanks!!
