Here are some matryoshka dolls I made out of clay that I mounted on top of some knitting needles. Of course they fell off the needles in transport Sad but they look cool  Grin

varandra - your pictures are priceless!  Cheesy the one of the skeleton hand poking out of the yarn made me laugh out loud. The posing of the two skelleys as well as all of the loot reminds me of a happy family haha.

I had a feeling the needles wouldn't survive the trip intact  Cry But like I said, I don't think its anything that some good glue can't fix. I'm glad you like everything  Grin

I received from thanate! She made me two awesome wall hangings  Grin

I know I've seen things like these around craftster but never even thought of making one. I love the colors and nature themed art is love  Kiss

The second smaller piece I love even more  Cheesy

I'm such a sappy romantic at heart and this captures it perfectly in a cute quirky way (so much like me Grin). Thank you so much thanate!!!

I made this for my boyfriend's parents for xmas. Recently they had to put down one of their golden retrievers due to old age which was very hard for them to do; I just wanted to create a piece that paid homage in a subtle way to old "Blue". I think its sweet, and I love the dog prints  Smiley

C&C are appreciated. Thanks!

On the ♪11th day of Christmas varandra gave to me♪...

Five awesome woven tags. I'm still trying to figure out how she did it. I'm not sure if the picture show clearly enough but each tag has a different shape. From the top left to right down, there's a clover, polar bear (my favorite), tree, mini x's, and a star. I don't think I've ever seen anything like it before on craftster. So Awesome! Thanks varandra!

varandra - I forgot to mention in the letter, that if you wanted you could attach some string or something to the top of the envelop holder that the recipes came in to make a cool little note organizer.  Wink

Since everyone is posting pictures of all their presents under the tree I thought I'd post...well, mine.

It's a sad little tree but it's mine (we haven't even put up the xmas tree  Roll Eyes)

So, ♫on the 12th day of Christmas varandra gave to me♪ *hums to self*...

Candy breakfast!  Grin

Actually, it was more like a late late late candy snack. I didn't purposely stay up past midnight but I was working on some last minute xmas treats for my coworkers and had to of course open present #1 after the stroke of midnight.

There is sooooooo much loot to be had. Tons of chocolate and fruity Swedish candies. A couple different kinds of licorice, two of which intimidated me, for good reason. Here are the highlights:

This was some fruity candy that I thought was so tiny and cute. I don't know if you can tell from the picture but the candy is in the shape of little monkeys.  Cheesy

This is a marzipan pig covered in chocolate. I think it looked very cute, though now it's head is missing... Roll Eyes varandra said that this is a traditional swedish xmas treat. In my family, its kind of a tradition to get each other marzipan in the shape of fruits and vegetables. But the chocolate just adds a whole 'nother level. It's still reallllllly rich though.

Ok, so I'm totally up for trying new things even if it may sound a little strange. Pictured above are two types of licorice: pepper and salt flavored...out of everything in the package this made me pause. But I totally gave them both an honest try. The pepper licorice definitely wasn't as bad as I feared...though I will say that there were times when it actually tasted good and then there were moments when I cringed because a particularly spicy/peppery sensation was a bit overwhelming. The salt licorice on the other hand....well, I did try it...I just couldn't keep it in my mouth for very long >.< I don't think I got past the initial layer of salt that coated the whole thing. I've never eaten a salt lick before but if I had to guess that's probably similar to what it would taste like lol. I still have a whole bag left though, so I'll probably give it another shot to see if I can get past the salt to get the real flavor.  Grin

Oh, and I must say that Geisha chocolate is soooooooooooooo good. I love hazelnut and the mixture is just heavenly. The chocolate nip bar was really good too; very strong and rich but definitely a treat.

Thanks so much varandra! My taste buds thank you  Cheesy I can't wait for tomorrow, and the day after that, and the day after that....

 Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Here's the link for the gallery http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=282443.0

I just found it because I figured the day before opening commences, there has got to be a gallery right?  Wink

Yay, I'm so happy you like the ornaments  Cheesy

So, I've been mentioning the Christmas pickle to everyone at work today and they all look at me like I'm crazy. Has anyone here ever heard of it?

I was told that it is a pickle that is hidden in the Christmas tree; the first child to find it gets an extra present or extra luck for the whole year..something along those lines. I did a little research on wikipedia found this website that elaborates on the story and the myth >>> http://german.about.com/library/blgermyth11.htm

I knew I wasn't making it up...

but a christmas pickle just makes me laugh too  Grin
