I received from calixta today...the only problem is that she has decided to torture me and not allow me to even open the box to see all the pretty gifts Its going to be a miracle if I can actually wait If the card is any sort of indication I am going to LOVE my gifts..seriously awesome card.
I am COMPLETELY blown away by my day 1 gift. I said I wanted a crochet basket but never imagined I'd get one. Not only is it huge, it is the PERFECT color. THANK YOU Calixta!!!!!! I am honestly stunned and feeling a little insecure about my gifts to you.
Yummy yummy in my tummy I got ginger snaps for Day 2. I am so not sharing. I have to comment on the tags calixta made, each one is a piece of artwork. I am totally reusing them!
So along the way some of the numbers fell off the packages
I was told that I could choose any of the un-numbered packages so I chose
And once again I am blown away. I LOVE my ocean earrings (I am a big ocean person). LOVE these AWESOME beaded coral earrings.
and who doesn't LOVE some sea glass earrings. calixta you seriously rule!
I got the cutest beaded felt ocean creatures. I am going to add them to a sea themed mobile that hangs in my guest room.
Day 5 -sorry for the delay in posting life got in my way yesterday. Anywho, I got these amazing candles. I think some of the finish calixta made came off the big one who I actually love how it looks now.
Day 6 I literally got the cutest pinecone bird. Calixta actually sent me two extras and one was a bag of pinecones so I may have to make some of these (the other extra was a chocolate orange I use past tense because its already gone )...though she did a far better job than I could. Calixta you are one talented chick
Day 7 I LOVE these beautiful lace earrings...so very me!
Day 8 I have been collecting vintage scarves to make a bedspread for my bed...my amazing partner used an awesome scarf to wrap a wonderful snowflake garland. I wish I was able to crochet but alas no matter how many times I am shown it doesn't stick
Day 9 I am so excited about this gift. I've been wanting a key wind chime for my porch!
I got the coolest star wreath made with book pages. I LOVE it!!!!!!!!!
I think it may stay up year round
OMG this shirt is AWESOME. I am truly a ocean girl and my partner got it right on!!!!!!
calixta told me my first gift was the best and the rest might be a disappointment as a result...she could not have been more wrong. This ornament is STUNNING and one of my favorite Christmas gift this year!!!!
