1  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Christmas Stocking Swap Round 12 (signups thru Oct. 24; sendout Dec.6) on: December 06, 2016 09:51:39 AM
Well I forgot to bring the STUFF with me to work because I'm getting a box from work to ship in, so my package will technically be "in the mail" today but I have a feeling it won't go anywhere until tomorrow morning because I don't think I can get home and to the post office before the last pick-up. (But to be fair... I can never remember when last pick-up is at my post office. I swear they change it every time I check just to mess with me.)

Aurora has also not been up to any exciting adventures lately but she did help decorate the tree:



Hopefully we'll have some more interesting stuff in the next week or so!

There are two "&" stamps

I knew I must have left something out of my list!!! I love them too!

I don't know if I've ever been the first to post in a gallery... this is so exciting! I swear I was told to open early (it was heavily implied that there were delicious goodies that were best enjoyed "fresh"!)


Here's everything I pulled out of the box! The stocking is still full in this picture... I feel terribly spoiled. On the left, you can see the reversible message board (with the poinsettia print), under that is a chalkboard flag banner, and above that is something I never knew I needed but totally do: it goes under your foot pedal for your sewing machine to keep it from dancing all over the place! To the right of the stocking, we have socks (I'm actually wear the fuzzy red/black ones right now) and some candy (which I've never seen before but very excited to try) and a fabric insert thing for tote bags so there are little pockets for little things!!!


The little gifts wrapped like big candies were a spice jar with a baggie of gummi bears crammed inside (yum!) and a tube of Godiva chocolates (another yum!).


Then I emptied the stocking!!! The orange-y thing on the left is for putting on the dashboard to set your phone on (which means I need to dust my dashboard!). There are baggies of mini candy canes drizzled with chocolate, all of my favorite candies, coasters/mug rugs in two fun prints, a headband and lip balm clip in match black and white prints (with watermelon lip balm in the latter!), some cocoa mixes (it was 72 degrees today so I think I'll wait a few more days before indulging in those) and in the light blue "&" package there's a gooey marshmallow chocolate thing that looks amazing!!!


I just really love this packaging job!!! (I stop at Taco Bell when I have the work shift that ends at 9pm so the bags will keep reminding me of this for weeks to come!) And inside, I found...


They were hard to get a photo of, sorry. The red thing is a bowl cover but it can also be flipped over to make a bowl itself! (The attached note suggests munchies on the couch, and I'm inclined to agree!) AND AND AND... A sewing mat / sewing machine cover!!! I wanted to take an action shot of it but my sewing machine is buried behind many storage boxes right now and won't be pulled out until the weekend.

I love everything so much JS, thank you!!!!! And getting to open so early has put my butt in gear to work on JS's package!!! (That, and NaNoWriMo is finally over.  Grin )

While I'm tempted to answer the check-in question with one of the things I opened yesterday from JS, I will go with one of my favorite Christmas traditions: My dad always puts different pens in my stocking. Nothing fancy, just nice ballpoint pens in different styles so I can try them out. I look forward to them every year!

I received my package from my earlybird partner JS! I swear, I was told to open it (there were hints that delicious goodies waiting to be eaten may be hiding inside) so I did  Grin I'll wait on sharing until I see a gallery link though  Tongue I don't know how JS managed to do ALL THIS and still send early, though! It's an amazing package, thank you so much JS!!! Now I have to finish up yours........

I picked up something I needed in order to make what might be my favorite piece in this swap... problem is, I picked it up on my way to work today and I work until 9pm so I have to wait forevvvvvvvver to go home and make it!

Looks like I'm going to have a problem with Aurora peeking in the stockings!!!

When I posted this one to Instagram, I couldn't fit both the fountain and the Christmas tree in the cropped area, so here's the whole photo...



We went to Town Center last night to have dinner and watch football with some of my friends from work... and when we left, we found that the lights and tree are up!

One year for Christmas, I asked several of my book-loving friends what their favorite book quotes were, but didn't tell them why. I cross-stitched and framed them, and they all really loved them. I tend to associate cross-stitching with Christmas for some reason (I think because I learned it from my mom when she was making Christmas gifts, and because it's a good activity for being curled up on the couch under a blanket).
