Everything has looked so good so far! I don't know how y'all are waiting until Christmas, I couldn't have. The snowman painting is so cute!
I'm a terrible person for not posting earlier, because I received such an awesome, well made, and thoughtful package from SheridanLA! She stalked my pinterest and really tailor made everything I could want for stocking stuffers and presents! She is amazing and I was _so_ lucky to get her. I hope you like your gifts nearly as much!
I also have to apologize that my pictures are crappy. My roommate has the real camera so I was stuck with my phone which does not do justice to the very pretty fabric and items Sheridan sent. : )
I love the stocking, it is perfect, and I know I'm going to have a hard time putting it away after the new year. The Lord of the Rings theme is perfect, the fabric is pretty, and the stitching is wonderful. I tried to make it better in my image editor, but I couldn't make it good enough. If you took pictures, Sheridan, please post them.
A pic of everything together:
There is a garland of holiday stars that I super love, a Star Wars cross-stitch that sums up my home, a to-go tea/mug carry bag, mug rug, and soothing mask all in my preferred color of orange. (The mask smells really wonderful, I'm glad you went ahead with the lavender!) There is also a Doctor Who necklace with wings and a "Don't Blink" tag, an orange glittered, wooden cut-out of my last name (the glitter has gotten everywhere, just as I like it). Not shown are some magnets up my fridge already, and some candy I've already chowed on. : )
I admit, I asked for a marked gift that I could save and open on Christmas, but everything else was so wonderful, that I couldn't stand to wait. Sheridan again right off my pinterest, made a doily dreamcatcher, and it is going right up with the rest of my collection as soon as I get a moment. It's very lovely.
And finally, something I'm wearing right now, a fandom bracelet. It has all my favorites on it: Game of Thrones, Zorro, Captain America, Mass Effect, The Hobbit, Doctor Who, and Lord of the Rings!
Thank you and I want to apologize again that I got caught up in work stuff and had to delay opening and sending to you! I hope you have a wonderful holiday season!
