Here's a clearer picture of the stocking hanging on my kitchen wall (it matched so perfectly yet I had to give it away)

I have to agree with krafty_kelly - SevsOnlyGirl, you did a wonderful job by pairing us together!

I received a FANTASTIC package from krafty_kelly today!  Wow, it's like she knows me because everything she sent is so suited to me.

First, the stocking

And now the contents:

A bag (which used to be a placemat), a towel with a snowman applique and the largest pin cushion I have ever seen!

A felted bowl (designed to fit around a plastic container), 2 wonderful wrapped pens (1 is personalized with my name) and a cookie cutter (filled with jellybeans)

A caribou tufted keychain (many people where I grew up used to do this sort of artwork and so it brings back so many good memories for me - now when I'm talking about tufting and people give me a strange look, I can show them my keychain)

3 snowmen items that are going to find wonderful places during my winter and/or Christmas decorating season!

Last, but certainly not least, some candy made in Newfoundland (where Kelly is from) - peppermint and peanut butter (and are they yummy!)  and a cookbook which I know I will get lots of use from.

THANK YOU Kelly for all the wonderful things - I feel very spoiled and can't wait until you get your package!

I received a package of English goodies from ZombieFlesh today!

In case you can't see it all in the picture, this is what she sent - 3 kinds of candy, some snowman stickers, 2 postcards, a book by her favorite author (she even included a newspaper article about him), a Remembrance Day poppy, a rain cloud, a package of gum, some tea (of course) and a newspaper so I can see what kinds of things the English report on.

I couldn't pass up the opportunity to tease Krafty_Kelly a little - here's what you should be looking for in your mail box - it will leave my house on Monday:

I (actually, my husband) received a wonderful t-shirt from Dragonsmuse today!  I had asked for something M&M related and this is the stencil she made:

It's fantastic!

Yesterday I received some wonderful handmade Christmas ornaments from Samsara.

3 of these (and they smell nice)                            3 snowflakes


                                      and a bunch of these icicles


My pictures hardly do them justice - they are even more beautiful in 'real life'.

AliBeachGrl picked to send me some quilt squares and after much trouble, thanks to the post office, they have finally arrived and were definitely worth the wait!

569  3 snowmen projects in Completed Projects by Homerof2 on: November 08, 2006 11:20:59 AM
Now that we have a computer at home that can handle my sons camera, I'm having fun posting pictures of things I've made Grin

These are 3 snowmen projects that I have painted over the last few years.

           In my dining room:

                                  In my kitchen:


This is a shelf sitter and he's usually on the opening between our kitchen and living room but the lighting was so poor there, I had to put him on the china cabinet:

570  Stacked penguins in Completed Projects by Homerof2 on: November 08, 2006 07:51:29 AM
It's probably tacky to 'revive' your own post but I forgot I had posted this way back in 2006 and so I was going to post them today and realized, after some searching, that they were already on here but I updated the photo since I'm better at taking pictures now and added the close up.

I made this stack of little penguins in 2006 and thought I would share them with you.

With the exception of the base, they are made for one piece of wood and that meant that everywhere there was an opening between the penguins, I had to drill a small hole and then thread my saw blade through that before starting to cut - it was one of the most challenging cutting jobs I had done up to that date.


Close up of my favorite guy (wouldn't you look like this if someone was stepping on you?)
