I love having hot cider with gingerbread cookies!

Also, I started on one small and have been gathering supplies for one large. I have a rough idea of what I want to make for each day!

Smeddley I would be interested in some amigurumi! I always love the ones you make.

I added a little needle felted ghost to my shop! The pic isn't great, so I will try to post a better one tomorrow.

Yay! I'm so excited for this swap to start!  Grin

Here are a few new items I made for my shop...
Skeleton animal print apron

And two purses on interchangeable metal frames. I am almost done with one more.

I also have some supplies on order to make some more resin skull jewelry and more beeswax skull candles (both in my shop last fall).

I've never done a white elephant party game, but I guess I'd give people empty cookie tins. It'd be a good joke in my family, and a nice reversal of the last twenty seven years of my life. (in my vast Scottish heritage family, while everyone else does highland dancing, or piping, or drumming, my dad and I do the traditional cooking. Come Christmas we make about 20-30 pounds of shortbread. All the relatives take turns dropping off empty tins at our house, and they get full tins Christmas eve)

Wow 20-30 pounds of shortbread! That's amazing!

I have also never done a white elephant gift exchange. I'm not sure what I would bring. My mom's work does it each year and I think she has found stuff at thrift stores to bring. I remember she said not everyone understood the concept and one year someone brought a nice bottle of wine as their gift and everyone wanted it!
