I have to say this is the best swap ever.  Kish did such a great job with partners that I we have become friends (at least we're planning a few personal swaps now, lol).  I love everything she sent, and it was all so creative.

I'm behind on photos at the moment, trying to recover from general holiday chaos.  I'll get them up soon.

The entire loot:


Day 1: BLANKET!
My partner is so creative, seriously.  She took a king sized, black comforter and made a quilted applique to put on it.  The best part?  The applique is a rendition of one of my favorite photos from our honeymoon.  I'll post the blanket photo alongside the honeymoon photo.  Thanks so much!
 

Day 2: Coffee and Cats!
So way  more than 2 gifts on this day.  An assortment of coffees, 2 tins of coffee (one mocha and one pumpkin spice), a french press with a cozy my partner made (so cute), and then two pieces of cat artwork for my cat-themed bathroom!



Day 3: Glasses and Shoes!
My husband and I both got etched glass beer mugs (he opened his on day 12 though b/c he's impatient like that).  His has the Oblivion symbol on it, and mine is a skull and knitting-needle-bones.  I also got a pair of ballet flats with little Eddie Izzards stenciled on the toes.  So cute!  The mugs are currently serving as extra vases for my Christmas Roses


Day 4: Clothes!
I got 2 Eddie Izzard stenciled t-shirts (she even got my size right, which is hard to get big sizes sometimes), some fabric paint, AND AND AND a fleece hoodie!  It's so awesome, fits great.  The sleeves are uber long so I can tuck my hands up inside, and the hood is so big it fits like a cloak's hood.  LOVE it! No photos right now because everything is already in the laundry from being worn so much.  Smiley


Day 5: Embroidery Kit!
Included in today's kit were a ton of floss, a pack of needles, a little embroidery hoop, some embroidery/cross stitch canvas, and a Sublime Stitching Craftopia pattern.  Can't wait to decorate something now.


Days 7 and 6: Totes and Computer Geekery
So, I opened days 7 and 6 together right at midnight.  Unfortunately in my excitement, I forgot which stuff goes with which day!  So here's the total list: 1 coupon organizer, 3 purple tote bags (so using these for knitting projects), 2 boxes of cookies, 1 diskette pencil cup, 1 circuitboard necklace, 1 pair of keyboard earrings, 1 set of keyboard wine glass charms (or stitch markers), 1 circuit wallet, and 1 set of stationery with "M" and "S" on them.  Cute!
 


Day 8: Rubber Stamps!
I got a nifty set of 8 rubber stamps and a stamp pad.  I love stamping and these are gorgeous style elements.  I don't have anything like this.  Love them.


Day 9: Glass Pendant Kit!
WOAH my partner is spoiling me!  I got soldering tool (which says it does other things like woodburning too), microscope slides, a book on how to solder jewelry, adhesive pen/leafing kit, some images to use, a kit with little jewelry tools, and 3 amazing pendants my partner made.



Day 10: Glass Etching Kit!
Ok.  In this kit I got 3 awesome packs of stencils, 2 blank shot glasses, 2 shot glasses with mine and my husband's initials etched on them, some gloves, sponge brushes, etching cream, and this awesome tool called a Tool Taxi.  It's all these different kinds of tools in one (xacto knife, tweezers, embossing stylus, etc.)



Day 11: Bath Kit!

OMG I got an awesome gift.  It is a soap/bath stuff kit.  It includes a book on techniques, soap molds, 2 fragrances (sandalwood and lavender), some soap/bath salt colorants, hand made lotion, handmade soaps, handmade lip balm, lip balm making kit, lip balm tins, and a huge package of plain goats milk soap to be made into pretty things.

Day 12: Pets!
I got a cat bed fish cave, dog toy, cat toys, dog treats, cat treats, 5 ornaments, an awesome dog treat jar (she can't chew through) with a bone and her name etched on it, and a dog bone cookie cutter!

*warning, i am using a larger photo cos i cant figure out clickable links, and i want you to see the image clearly*


Day 1
this blanket fits another quilt i am going to make myself VERY well, and i am going to use it to inspire the colors for my craft room (maybe, i can only have so many black red and white rooms, so the odds are good on this one winning lol), its so funny, because when i saw this fabric on the bolt, i bought 4 yards of it right away...i couldnt help myself...it was the first pink mickey i had seen....now i have something tangible made with it..thank you! i love it


there they are, i hope its all there...if not, please let me know! but i loved everything, and i am so grateful that we were partners, and that you are so patient!

My dad sent me a photo of the package that TAOJ sent me:


He also attached a photo of his "helper":



Nothing gets by him.

For the 12th day of Christmas, my partner TAOJ sent to me:



12 gift tags!

Here's the front: and the back: .

These look hand-stamped but I'm not sure. I've already put on on one of my dad's presents.

For the 11th day of Christmas, my partner TAOJ sent to me:



(excuse the grate in the photo. I'm using my dad's comp & I can't figger out how to edit pics.)

11 Christmas cards! They're two styles. The first one has lyrics and sheet music (?) for O Christmas Tree, and the second one has words like yummy, togetherness, family, friends, sweets, and peace. The tree paper is sewn onto the backing paper and then that's glued onto sturday red cardstock. These cards are EXCEPTIONALLY well-made.





For the 10th day of Christmas, my partner TAOJ sent to me:

Supplies! I got cross-stitch fabric, thread, a frame and instructions for some really cool-looking colourful designs.





For the 9th day of Christmas, my partner TAOJ sent to me:

Ornaments!



Half were stars and the other half were candies. CHECK OUT THE TINY EMBROIDERY AND BEADWORK ON THESE BABIES. It's insane!



For the 8th day of Christmas, my partner TAOJ sent to me:

Bath stuff!



There's lotion, soaps, bath salts, a washcloth, a soap saver and a face scrubbie. It's all orange-scented wonderfulness!

For the 7th day of Christmas, my partner TAOJ sent to me:



Clockwise from the top: 2 luggage tags, a sort of stained-glass mermaid which I LUV (did you make it yourself TAOJ?), gift tags, a passport/ticket organizer, marble magnets, and a birthday book that you use to remember people's birthdays.

For the 6th day of Christmas, my partner TAOJ sent to me:

A whole bunch of stuff to warm up with!



There's hot chocolate mix, "snowman poop," a neck warmer filled with seeds that you pop in the microwave, and two smaller handwarmers for your pockets. I love the pocket ones. The only things I've ever seen like that are in camping stores, and they're completely non-reusable.

I also got a lovely hat and scarf set, CROCHETED:



I knit but I just can't crochet so I think it's really neat. Check out the June Cleaver hairflip - oh yeah, that's all natural. (Yeah, I'm getting a haircut tomorrow.)

For the 5th day of Christmas, my partner TAOJ sent to me:

Supplies!



There's a DPN needle holder (squeeee! I have wanted one of these forEVER!), a pincushion,a spindle, and merino roving (that's the term, right?). In the back there, it's a little hard to see but there's a quilting template ruler, to help with angles because I said I had trouble with those.

For the 4th day of Christmas, my partner TAOJ sent to me:



That's three pear-scented candles as well as some of TAOJ's family recipes. I really like the oat bars, at the front there. I'm not sure if you can see the designs on some of the blank cards she sent as well, because they are gaw-jus.

ALSO IN DAY FOUR!



A necklace made from a piece of filmstrip. I scanned it in, and I'm not sure how clear it is. It's two frames from Shrek, and there's the little guiding holes on the sides and everything. How did you make this?!?!?! My guess is that it's from a VHS cassette?

And, so far quite possibly my favourite piece:



An apron! But not just any apron. It is so cute and stylish I just want to war it everywhere - actually, I'm wearing it right now. It's a little retro and I can actually use it and it fits perfect and it looks just like something out of the movie Waitress (which is fantastic, btw). Thank you TAOJ!

For the 3rd day of Christmas, my partner TAOJ sent to me:



A sleep mask. I believe I should get points for taking a picture that better than most I take, on the first try, one-handed, blindfolded.



An afghan (helpfully modeled by Felix, star of the Milanese catwalks I can't believe I just made that pun).





and sleep pants! (excuse the mismatched socks, and blur.) I may fib and call them yoga pants so I can wear them out in public because I loves them so. I am in fact wearing these right now, beneath the apron.

For the 2nd day of Christmas, my partner TAOJ sent to me:

A calendar and a messenger bag!



The bag is huge so I can carry the tons of stuff I haul with me everywhere. The outside is black corduroy and it's completely lined.

Now for the calendar. This requires a bit of background. See, TAOJ lives very near where I was born and lived for my first couple years. And my favourite movie, New Waterford Girl, and one of my favourite books, Fall on Your Knees, are both set near there. So TAOJ based an entire calendar around Fall on Your Knees. It is AMAZING.



See, it says "House at the end of Railroad St, Whitney Pier." The second taxt block says "A likely spot for Jameel's Speak", which is one of the main settings in the book. Each month is colour-matched like that. Some of the photos are archival but I believe TAOJ took most of them herself.

June:
I apologize for the blur.

This one is for November, and it absolutely blew my dad away. It's a rosary and it's completely gorgeous.



For the 1st day of Christmas, my partner TAOJ sent to me:

A SWEATER!



It's Mr. Greenjeans from Knitty, and it's fantastic. The yarn is this soft lilac wool, I believe. I love this sweater!

WHAT I GOT (sorry they are not all clickable)
Teaser. This isnt even all of it, just what I could fit in the picture.


DAY 12. A sweet tin


with COOKIES!!! I shared them with my inlaws and the press guys at work. They are a big hit. Refuler spritz, chocolate spritz and peanut butter kisses!


Very carefully decorated cookies.


DAY 11 Felt ornaments. I strung them up to hang over my sink.


DAY 10
Scrapbooking kit and stationery;


I love these two cards best;


DAY 9. All sorts of random goodies. Knitting kit, M.E. iron on, sock monkey kit, 2 purses, snowflake pin, decorate your own ornament, mini drafting kit, oil pastels, notebook and knife set. WHEW! There is also a sweet little bunny pin that got cut off in the picture.


DAY 8. Microscope slide necklace kit. I think this is my fave so far. It is going to be what I do when I need a break from other arty goodness. And the extra papers and stickers that came with it are awesome!


DAY7. Okay, I have 2 fave days! This one has 6 skiens of yarn (in pairs) and a closet organizer. There are a ton of pockets in many sizes on both sides. I am going to use it for belts, scarves, etc, etc.


DAY 6. 6 blocks of Fimo and 6 containers filled with assorted candies and goodies for all my altering of things. There are also 2 cute little bear pins that I am going to use as the tags for 2 upcoming baby gifts I have to give. This just makes me want to glue things so badly!


Day5. Three skeins of yarn, an old time crochet book, (which has some really cute stuff in it) and a book with 6 crochet afghan patterns which skipped out of this picture.


My fave part? The FIVE amazing poly clay crochet hooks. This picture does not do them justice at all! They are blue with glitter and little suns everywhere. Blue, glitter AND crochet. Too cool.


Day 4 Picture missing---I will fix this!

Day 3
For Eric, 2 shadowboxes of his fave people. (and I will fix that pic someday)
