Can you believe Christmas is less than 7 weeks away?
I LOVE this time of the year. I know its crazy busy and life is hectic but Christmastime is definitely my favourite time of the year.
For me, Christmas really is about Love, Joy & Hope. It’s about sharing kindness, love and generosity with each other; it’s about spending quality time with family and friends; it’s about adorning your house with fairy lights and decorations; it’s about delicious home cooking and of course it’s about the hope that comes from Jesus.
This year I wanted create a little community of people who love Christmas, love being generous, love creating new friends and love baking. So I created a Sweep Swap! It runs like a Secret Santa but all of the gifts are home baked sweets. It’s so easy to play… Sign up, bake some sweets, package them, send them away to the person you have been allocated to, and then wait patiently for a parcel of sweetness to pop into your own mail box. I’m so happy some other gorgeous businesses on Instagram have caught my vision and want to be involved. We’ll also be running a few giveaways throughout the swap, but really, everyone who plays is a winner anyway!
So if you are in Australia and you enjoy baking I would LOVE you to participate. Read more about it and sign up here… http://eepurl.com/cl7V4n
I think a lot of us like to be generous but we are convinced we need to be wealthy to be able to give. You can be generous and make people smile in so many ways; with your finances, time, skills, encouraging words etc. This swapsie is just a simple little way to give of your time, talents and although there is a small cost financially (ingredients and postage) if you are anything like me you will rush off to the post office (possibly skipping and singing Christmas carols on the way) feeling all warm and fuzzy knowing in a few days you will be making someones day even sweeter. x
