Here's my delightful package of cards from ChameleonHound!

For my "fish joke" theme...

(I know it!! Do you? Wink)

And for my "Y" - it's yarn!! Such a thick and yarny card.

And all the letters of my alphabet are now complete! (Now just for a single alphabet card to finish the pages..)

Thanks ChameleonHound, this was a fun package to open!
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: 2014 Winter Holiday Crafting on: November 20, 2014 08:07:10 PM
I don't have a huge gifting list, but I'm getting rolling on my crafting. I'm trying to do at least one crafted item and a book for each of my people. So here is my list (not including other purchased stuff), to be struck through as things get completed/in my hand!

1) Mom
CRAFTED ITEM: a cozy for Tim Horton's cups
POSSIBLE CRAFTED ITEM: "Today I Choose Joy" pillow
BOOK: ... hm, will she get a book this year? Maybe something affirmative and self-esteem building. She's into those.

2) Dad
CRAFTED ITEM: coasters with maps of the Florida Keys
BOOK: ... not sure if he will get a book either, but I might just grab a used sci-fi/fantasy/Western or 2 from my favourite bookstore to pop in with the rest of his gift

3) Sister (24)
CRAFTED ITEM: a cozy for Tim Horton's cups
CRAFTED ITEM: Deathly Hallows image stencilled on a thrifted shirt
BOOK: Elizabeth Is Missing, since she's into mysteries, the elderly, and WWII, and this features a bit of all of them - on order!

4) Boyfriend (28)
CRAFTED ITEM: coasters, possible from Mexican tiles
BOOK: The Best Pasta Sauces: Favourite Regional Recipes, since he's of Italian descent and loves to cook Italian - on order!

5) Group of Friends Secret Santa (23 & Male, my friend's boyfriend)
CRAFTED ITEM: hand-rolled pocket squares from linen/patterned wool/silk
BOOK: Sharp Suits, because he runs a quite popular men's fashion Tumblr and intends to be a fashion journalist one day - on order!

Cool! It almost looks like the two felt cards could go together. I really like the stitching on the lighthouse. If I did another felt card, I'd stitch it! (And heck, I'm into that lighthouse in general. Maybe I should make a lighthouse theme).

I posted my amazing Girly Art card from WiccadWitch in the November gallery, because it fit so well with the OTHER Girly Art card I received in the November swap (and heck I received them both in November Wink).

I got two super awesome additions to my "Girly Art" collection during November (though I realize one is actually an October 2014 swap ATC, but I'm posting them together anyway!).

Here are my totally delightful cards from:

WiccadWitch, on the left &
KosmicGirl, on the right ("The pink earring")



I was squealing with delight when I received, both times! So up my alley. Thanks guys!!

After a super crazy couple weeks, I was able to make it to the post office to pick up packages despite it's hours (9-5? Really, that's it!?), AND um, yes, check my OWN mailbox, and post those super lovely festive flavours that had been piling up on my desk!

I received all but one of my ornaments, and I've decided to post them all in one big photos.


There is... (clockwise from bottom left):
- alwaysinmyroom's Burlap Reindeer (and bonus paper star!)
- Koreena's Dala Horse (I like the colour I ended up with!)
- crazyda79's Frozen Light (it matches the Dala horse!)
- goldfishpollywog's Tin Mirror Star (shiny!)
- underthemountain's Cork Tree (I like the concept of a tree on a tree Wink)
- Avesthel's knit stocking (in green stripes - it's bigger than I expected!)
- And the very first I received, Homerof2's Crochet Bell (white, and just like the ones that were on my family's tree growing up!)

THANKS To all (and to all a good night Wink)

And I am, alas, resending a few ornaments! I made a very poor packaging choice, and a few got ripped open and arrived with empty envelopes. GEEZ. (My fault, my fix! Hopefully these will be out by the end of these weekend).
