So little sleeping and so much reading exchange.

#somuchChristmas  was this year's exchange of books and other gifts in
So little sleeping and so much reading.
It was my first year of taking part and I really enjoyed it.
We had to buy a book from the recipent's wishlist on Goodreads and add to the box whatever we felt like.
Here's what I received from sweet Marili who lives in my city too.
The book is Jessie Burton's The Miniaturist which was in my wishlist, and dear Marili made for me a crochet bookmark, a crochet bracelet, crocheted snowflakes which I adore and a crochet mug coaster. She also made me a lovely fabric owl bookmark, and sent me a beautiful card, some tea and delicious candy. All in all it was an exceptional parcel.
And here's what I sent to a lovely lady in Orestiada called Christina!
After wrapping up everything I realised I should have taken a photo of the things before wrapping them too, how silly of me!
I included two books from the recipient's wishlist, two more second hand books from my collection, I made some chocolate and put it in the tin box, I made a card, and the rest of the little parcels contain bookmarks, pencils, stationery, stickers, cards, music cds,candles and candle holders,handmade soap and more bits and pieces.
But here's a photo taken from my recipient's fb page.I know she enjoyed my parcel!
Thanks So little sleeping and so much reading for organising this!

OOh, I love this exchange - it looks like lots of fun! Is it only in Greece, or can Aussies join in the fun, too? I loved The Miniaturist - enjoy!
