Here are some quick snapshots of how the festive season has been so far through my iPhone. I find that it is so much easier to upload photos from there instead of my camera cos I'll already have done all the photo editing on my phone anyway when I upload on Instagram/Facebook.
First gift exchange of the year on 15 Dec 2012

I decided to make my own handmade goodies for my colleagues this year. Thus I narrowed it down to three items.
Item 1 - chocolate cherry coconut almond granola being.
Item 2 - Rose and cranberry crackies.
Item 3 - Chocolate sables.
Dried roses petals where I spent 2.5 hours peeling...
Everything all baked and ready to be packed
Individually packed and labelled
Gifts for the colleagues
Top L to R - Gifts from the colleagues; A really awesome ring box; Accessories I received; Food related items I received
With regards to Christmas presents, I think I'm quite an easy person to buy a gift for. Just buy me anything related to food, fashion or cameras. This year, I received several items that are quite useful and also very "me". Love all the accessories I've gotten this year. My friends know me well indeed cos I'm currently in a statement accessories phase.
As for the food related items...I love all them, really I do! But. Erm, I have all of the above already. Whoops. I just ordered a cake pop baking kit recently online (which have yet to arrive), and as for the book, I got myself a copy of the exact book a few weeks back, and I received a chocolate fondue set too for one of my last year's gift exchange. Nevertheless, I'm happy to get all of them cos it means my friends really do know me well. I mean there can never be too much of anything yes? I'll make sure to put everything to good use. :)
