When Brown Eyed Girl and I decided to co-host a cookbook swap, we were both excited to share our love of cookbooks. Below you'll find the swap pairings. We do have a group of three, which I'll detail more in an email.
Landlocked Mermaid with Susannah
Maryann with Michelle
The Caretaker with Lexiloo and Mrs. Potts
Brittany Ann with Zentmrs
b.e.g. with Lacey
Some things you may want to ask your partner when you email them could include:
- What do you typically like to cook?
- What kind of cookbook do you wish you have?
- Do you enjoy the "celebrity" cookbooks or are you hoping for one that is more of a general cookbook?
- If you could travel anywhere & spend a week taking cooking lessons where would it be? (Ok, that one was for me, but hey!, a girl can dream, right?)
Both b.e.g. and I hope that you'll enjoy getting to know your partner as well as check out their blogs! Ladies, I'll send you an email with your swap partner's email address a little later today. Thank you all for signing up!
************ Christmas Giveaway ***************
Part Deaux of my Christmas Giveaways is for all you alligators (or crocodiles - whichever you identify best with) out there suffering from dry skin & dry hands.
I'm calling this one, See Ya Later, Alligator! That was a special little shout out to my precious nephew who always says that when we're done talking on the phone.
So many of us get dry skin during the winter months and the holidays are no time for flaky skin or cracked, ragged cuticles. Mrs. Potts to the rescue!
The first part of this gift to one of you will include the Boots Amazon Forest Brazil Nut and Vanilla Body Butter. I mentioned this last week in my Fabulous Friday & having used it all week realized that I really need to share this with you. It smells so good I could eat it & it does wonders for my skin, keeping it soft & moisturized without being greasy.
This body butter is an amazing thing on it's own, but if you're like me, you tote lotion around everywhere. What better place to keep some than in your bag? Computer bag, hand bag, diaper bag - entirely up to you!
The second piece of this gift is Burt's Bees Therapeutic Hand Creme. I've always adored Burt's Bees & what a great way to share that!
The last piece of this gift will be a color from Essie. I love Essie nail polishes & there is nothing better than a brilliant burgundy for the holidays & parties! Essie Wild Thing is described as a ferociously sparkling wine. Sounds yummy!!
As before, simply leave a comment on this post & you'll be entered for the giveaway.
