I know the real meaning of Christmas is not in the getting of presents, but it sure makes it more fun, doesn't it? This year I opted to join the Hometalk Blogger's Secret Santa gift exchange. If you aren't familiar with Hometalk, you are missing out. It is an online sharing site where anyone (professionals, bloggers, or just regular homeowners and renters) can share home and garden ideas, crafts and DIY projects for the world to see. If you are a blogger, they have a Facebook group you can request to join that is a treasure trove of information, support, and encouragement. That is where this fun gift exchange began. One of the bloggers asked if anyone was interested in doing a Secret Santa gift exchange; 38 of us jumped right in.
