1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Christmas Stocking Swap Round 12 Gallery on: January 05, 2017 02:46:12 PM
Okay, sorry for the delay on posting pictures! I kept forgetting!

I received from Mlsocci74 on December 23rd. She sent me such a wonderful package!

Here is everything together,



Look at the beautiful framed African Grey print! It was from my Pinterest, and I'm in love with it!

Here is the stocking. It is felted, and very cool!



Here is a sweet owl coin purse, some super sweet bird stickers, and a pair of adorable bird socks.



Three sets of super cute bird cards/notes.



She sent me a bunch of super sweet magnets with pictures of my birds. I adore these! There is also a keychain with my conure's picture. Also pictured here is a beautiful scale of justice necklace.



Thank you so much, Melissa! Everything was perfect! I love it all!  Smiley

What was a memorable stocking stuffer in your life?  (either given or rec'd)


I don't think I can pick just one! My mother always stuffed my stockings so well. It was/is so excited to see all the little things she packs in there. (:

My stocking is on the way to my partner!  Grin

What is your favorite handmade gift you've ever given to someone?  (could be Christmas or other occasions)

My favorite homemade gift I've given would probably have to be a feather painting of a Scarlet Macaw that I made for a girl visiting my bird club from Make-a-Wish. Her favorite parrots were macaws, so I made a beautiful layout of macaw feathers, painted the macaw on top, and then covered the glue spot with beautiful colored feathers. I then framed it, and it looked stunning. The girl and her family loved it, and it made me so happy!

Describe your Christmas tree (either now or from childhood) -- is it themed?  Feel free to chat about other trees you've admired over the years as well!


Our family Christmas tree in the living room has gone between being real and fake. Currently, we are using real trees. Our tree doesn't have a theme, but it has personal decorations on it. We use the same berry garland that we have used since I was little. It is decorated with ornaments that have pictures of me and my sister, our special ornaments that we get each year, ornaments that my mother made when she was younger, and other random ornaments.

I also have a fake white tree with colored lights in my bedroom. When I was younger, and up until recently, the tree had a pink and sweets theme. I had lots of pink balls, snowflakes and glass ice-cream cones and lolly pops,  along with other personal ornaments. Now it has shifted into more of a blue and birds theme. I have blue balls, and lots of different bird ornaments. There are some ornaments with pictures of my birds, and ornaments that I hand painted with my bird's portraits. I still have the dessert ornaments as well. There are also a few nerdy ornaments. The one ornament that never changes position each year, is a glass ballerina that I got when I was young. She is always placed in the middle at the very top!

Why are you so enthused about Christmas stockings?


I love Christmas stockings because they are a tradition. 'Santa' fills them up for the kids, and the kids help fill up the adults. Everyone is excited to see what is in their stockings every year, and it is just so fun!

Stockings are also a part of Christmas decorations for me. Some are elegant, some are cutesy. I love them!

I also do stockings for my animal babies.  Grin

I'm still planning my stocking, but have been working on some stuffers. I made something from my partner's pinterest last night that I've never attempted to do before, and I am so happy with how it turned out. Cheesy
