For our December Book Club we decided to have a favorite things party in lieu of exchanging gifts for Christmas. It was so much fun. We each brought enough gifts for everyone and I think it's safe to say that we all went home very happy ladies. ( Oh yeah and our book for the month was The Great Gatsby. We really do read and talk about the book---even if it's only for 5 minutes)
My awesome friend Meagan hosted and it was perfect. Her house is always decorated crazy cute for Christmas. She is such a good hostess!

Because there were 10 of us there and we wanted to give to everyone we set the limit a little lower to $5 for each gift. Here's what we all brought:
Me: Handmade bracelets out of washers and leather (instructions found here) and a shopping list pad.
Meagan: Chevron socks and glitter nail polish
Brittney: Handmade scarves and homemade yarn bookmarks.
Nichole: Personally designed prints and earrings
Jeanette: Adorable snowflake mugs
Jenn: Candy Cane Kisses and handmade Christmas Tree Ornaments
Cheryl: Brookside Dark Chocolate Goji Raspberry
Dari: Mexican Vanilla, Nail polish and Crystal Light
Whitney: Bath & Body Works Candy Cane Soap, Crystal Light & Sugar Free Candy
Alicia: Homemade vanilla and recipes.

It really was a splendid night. I certainly love these ladies. Thanks for hosting Meg! And sorry it took me so long to post these pictures...
Have you had a favorite things party? I'm kinda obsessed with them.
