21  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Christmas Stocking Swap! on: December 21, 2015 11:42:04 AM
I have been super busy at work and at life but I have been thoroughly enjoying my stocking things from anubisheart and I finally have a minute to post pics...hold on to your Santa hats, it's pret-ty awesome.


The stocking is based off of Buddy the elf from "Elf"!!! There are so many fantastic things inside =0)

She made hand blown glass ornaments. Seriously. And super cute minnie bow hair clip...

Another Elf craft, a stenciled quote shirt...

Pajama pants. Hand made flannel pajama pants which I have worn every night since receiving and I am totally wearing them right now (also pictured, my elf shoes that I made)
...and all of this wonderful stuff and mostly candy wrappers because I ate most of it. Utah honey, flowering teas, a key ornament, socks, a cookie cutter, soap, a skull shaped teaspoon (OMG!!) and so much candy including alcohol infused chocolates.

Thank you so so much anubisheart. I love everything dearly <3
I had so much fun with this swap and everybody made such wonderful things. Merry Christmas to all!!

I'm so nervous. No matter how much I made, I kept feeling like it wasn't enough.

I am not going to fill my stocking to send....it's an awkward shape, so I think I'm just going to pack it on top. I wasn't going to wrap anything either, but I think if I don't pack it I should at least tissue paper everything hand made.

I hate this part!!!

What I thought would be a few quick things is actually waaay more hand stitching than I had imagined. I think I'm in the Monday Tuesday shipment boat as well....but I am going to fight for Saturday.

I haven't even attempted to fit anything into my stocking yet.

Favorite holiday movie is Die Hard. The first one. The boyfriend's is Gremlins. We watch both of them every Christmas.
I'm watching Batman Returns right now as part of my December long marathon =0)

There are so many parts to my stocking...but I'm almost done. It's a lot of *do a bit, then let dry and do a bit more and let that dry*

Will be wrapping up the innards within the next few days.

Thanks guys! A lot of people at the party were mad that I smelled so good...I used a maple syrup fragrance oil to get into character =0)
Maybe I'll bring a big bowl of Buddy's spaghetti this year *yuck*

This isn't a cheap plug or anything because I know the guys who made it  Tongue
There is a documentary about real bearded Santas called "I am Santa Claus" they profile a year in the life of several men that work as Santa. It was on Netflix last year and we watched it at least 5 times. It's so good. (Not family friendly)

"Get Santa" is another newer favorite of mine. I watch strictly all Christmas movies and tv episodes through December...but that one stands out.

I'm in North Carolina for a wrestling trip at the moment...sometime this week I plan on one last craft store trip and maybe I can start to finish up.

My Mom makes stuffed french toast for breakfast. When we were kids, it was the only way to get us to eat breakfast on Christmas when we were too excited over our toys to want to eat.

The stuffing is something along the lines of cream cheese, brown sugar, raisins and carrot shreds and the french toast is actual french bread. This was also what started our breakfast buffet.
