It's the most wonderful time of the year....

and I'm not talking about back to school.  I'm talking about the very season the song was intended to celebrate.  (Although I have been known to apply it to the back to school season in years gone by.) 

Today I received my first Santa Sack exchange present.  As per the instructions, the first package included the 'sack' plus 2 gifts.  The gifts will remain a mystery until the proper time.

Betsy made me the coolest bag....prominently displaying a holiday wish in Spanish....and we all know I love all things Spanish.  Love the nice long handles and the prairie points.  Such a cute detail. 

 The label was too cute to not show.  I love the Santa with his arms flung wide.  Clearly Betsy has command of her embroidery machine...unlike some people I could mention.  Ahem, me. 
Inside the bag besides the cool label are pockets and, best of all, presents.  Betsy sent along a Jan Patek book she had after I mentioned liking her patterns.  So sweet. 
Wait!  What's this?  A note on one of the presents tells me I don't have to wait all the way until Christmas.  Woot.
Thank you Betsy!  This is going to be fun.
