Can you believe that I, the writer of the SwapDex, had not been in ANY of Linda's A Swap for All Seasons Swaps. That is, until now! I joined the Countdown to Christmas Matchbox Swap, had a blast making my 25 matchboxes and mailed them in. Now I can't wait to get my Advent boxes and open one each day leading up to Christmas! Linda is hosting a Swap For All Seasons Santa Clause Blog-Along Giveaway and we were all asked to post a picture of Santa on our blogs.This is me in 1984, getting a HUGE present from Santa at the Kraft company Christmas Party. This is the year started turning brown, so even though my portraits from this year show a blond little girl, in this picture I am almost brunette. I can't remember what was in the box. But I do remember those purple shoes on my feet! And I vaguely remember having to go up some stairs to get my present from Santa on some sort of stage. And I remember the story on the back cover of that issue was about a man who bred Himalayan cats. It's weird what you remember.
