Ok, I rushed through that mess I was working on...and I have opened my packages. I just have to say SQUEEEEE! I have to apologize for the picture quality - I live in Oregon and we haven't had any sun in days. I took these pics in the brightest part of my house (the hallway) but this prevented me from getting good closeups and from hanging stuff up. So, sorry about that.
Without further ado, pictures:
First, from CraftyDeb:
A platypus!!!!!!!!! I collect stuffed platypuses (?) and they all sleep in the bed with me and hubby. (Weird, I know) This platypus is made of corduroy and I've decided his name is Horatio. What you cannot see is that Horatio's feet are stitched with blue thread to match his body. SO cute. Horatio is hanging out with me as I type this. He's snuggly!
PLUS! Two reusable grocery bags. I love these! As you can see, they have ties for easy carrying. The fabric is just too adorable and makes me smile every time I look at it.
Second, from an unknown Secret Santa:
A monster bag!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have wanted one of these for a really long time - since I saw one on here, as a matter of fact. He is adorable, and the winter coat I wear (a cape actually) is gray, so monster will go perfectly with my cape. Now I just need a name for him. Suggestions?
Finally, from another unknown Secret Santa, who tells me he/she tried these two crafts for the first time in making these items for me! I am sure you will agree, my loot is great:
Handmade paper! It is beautiful - plenty of pieces of it so I have plenty to play with. You cannot really see the gorgeous colors, but trust me it is fab.
A t-shirt recon. I love it - this is one of my fave colors, and it fits very well.
Finally - he/she spoiled me - check out this gorgeous shirt. A thrift store find, according to my Secret Santa, who clearly has some shopping SKILLS!
Thank you so very much Deb and my other two Secret Santas. I feel truly spoiled.
And I'd dearly love to know who my Secret Santas are - please? I think you two deserve some public accolades on this thread, since you rock so much!
