Hey everybody, just got back into town after five days and straight into a ten-page parade of awesome crafts!

That cool reindeer, those shirts (stenciled, knitted), stockings of every kind, the random wreath, books, art, - my gods!! - so much cool stuff everywhere!  Everything I've seen on this entire thread is great.  This has been an incredible swap.  Thank you ghostgirl, SevsOnlyGirl and everyone.


I forgot who asked, but the foot bone stocking was made from vinyl, reverse appliqued, with a vintage velvet lining.  Oh, and the piping was just normal poly-cotton piping.

I received from gebah on Saturday, and she spoiled me rotten!

First off, the amazing flamingo stocking and a mini flamingo ornament using a candy cane and fleece - she sent me three of the little guys.



Here's a nice shot of some of the goodies.



Everything that smelled and tasted good, an orange candle, eggnog flavored coffee, a coffee shower scrub and chocolate fortune cookies. She also sent me a choclate with almonds bar as big as my head, but my husband stole it before I could take a picture. She had a tag on it that said "size matters." HA!



Some great brown fuzzy and glittery yarn, named Disco, because of my obsession with the 1970s.



A really cute measuring tape, which I love, and a ruler and protractor than bend without breaking!



Here's some crafted items: a totally cute wooden frame she finished with a flamingo scene (this is already on the wall in my home office), a plushie kitty folksy Christmas decoration, and a metal and beaded initial ornament for my tree.



She sent this cute superhero gluestick with a tag that read "the best stocking stuffer a Craftster can get." Plus, it can came with two extra gluesticks!



I didn't get a picture of the cat treats, dog rawhides and two pretty purple Chinese yoyos gebah sent, because some members of my household are impatient!

But maybe the funniest and best thing of all ... EVIL CIRCUS PEANUTS!



On my survey I listed circus peantus as a taste that I dislike. Gebah PM'ed me and said it cracked her up, to which I replied, no seriously, they're evil. So she outfitted three of the nasty things to look like the Joker, the Rddler and Cat Woman. This lady cracks me up!

One more thing, which totally surprised me. Gebah's not a knitter, but I had put on my survey that I loved the hat Kirsten Dunst wore in "Elizabethtown." So she found a pattern for it and commandeered one of her crafty friends to make it for me! I've hardly taken it off since Saturday!

Obligatory hat action shot to follow:



I'm in my basement, what can I say?

Thank you so much, gebah! This was the best first swap ever and you made it great!

How can you hate circus peanuts? They are so sweeeeeeeeeeet! Wink

On my wedding, my family decorated my car with hundreds of circus peanuts because they think it is so wierd that I love them.

Great stockings and great loot!
