I received my package from thelostboys today.  It's great and I love it!

First, a group shot.  I got an origami paper ornament, a felt penguin ornament, a little extra cat toy for my two girls (only they know where it is now), a necklace and bracelet I'll be wearing tomorrow, three papered pens, a cookie cutter tote bag and a bag full of chocolate kisses (soon to be gone).  It couldn't have arrived on a better day. I had just gone out today and bought a small Norfolk island pine to decorate and hopefully keep alive for years to come. 

Close ups of everything...

Thank you thelostboys!!

Here's the wonderful loot I received from phoenixfiredesigns today!  Grin

First, the can and some bath goodies: ginger body wash and lotion that smell great, a poof, and bath beads that I can't wait to try. (Funny story: I had bath beads when I was a teenager and my older brother thought they looked cool, so he put one in his mouth. Huh Huh He was walking around with it and suddenly started making disgusted noises and horrible faces and ran to the sink to rinse his mouth out. He held it in his mouth too long and it dissolved! Cheesy Serves him right for eating my bath beads.)

My big wish for my can was ornaments, and PFD set me up wonderfully. Four are hand-painted, two are sewn, and one is made from buttons and inspired by my wist. The painting is perfectly done, and they're all super cute. There's also a cool jingle bell penguin on a long cord. Smiley (Did you paint this too, PFD?)

Next, a velcro pouch and drawstring bag (PFD just started sewing, but I can't tell because these are really well-done!) and a bookmark. I'm reading "The History of the Snowman" right now, so it's like fate that I got a wintry bookmark.  Smiley

These are super cool: flat-bottomed decorated ornaments that are place card holders!

And finally, two pairs of Christmassy earrings (check out the white ones--they're snowmen!) and a teeny candy cane eraser:

Thanks so much, PFD! I love everything.  Kiss

I'm so pleased you like it all. I had fun playing "let's see how many MORE things I can cram into the can."  Cheesy And nah, I just bought the penguin. Saw him and thought he was cute.

Ew....bath beads can NOT taste good. Bleck! Does serve him right though! Wink

I hope you enjoy and that the ornaments help add some crafty cheer to your tree.

So here is my loot from Heffer Joo Bug. The pictures are so dark eventhough I took them in natural light in middle of day!
I know it's now the darkest time of the year but it just somehow hit now. Anyway back to business... Here are the pics!

The entire loot from two different angles. The can is decorated with very cute snowman paper and has some 3d-figures attached to it. Those
red and green candy dishes are the kitchiest thing ever! This year I might me able to do some portion controlling with these babies.

Some Christmas- cards Heffer made. The one the back with green shimmery paper inspired me to change the color scheme for my Christmas tree. It's now going to be turquoise green and black. My tree is white just that you know. The card on the foreground with images from The Snowman- animation I'm going to give to my sister as she watches the animation every year on Christmas eve. And if she doesn't get to see it...Well, let's just say it's better that she sees it. For the rest of us cooped up under the same roof with her.

Lastly my favourite items...Christmas magnets and wine charms! Very nicely done and the charms will be used a lot this season! The magnets will hold my Christmas cards...as soon as I clear my fridge door that is.

Thanks Heffer! You worried for nothing. Girl, you got a talent for crafting and you should keep it up!
Oh yes. Thanks for the chocolates! I was going to save the chocolate coins for my god son but...I ate them. I am trying to save the Galaxy-bar as long as I can but it's get harder by the minute Cheesy

Awesoe packages! I love those little snowman earrings PFD made (isn't she the coolest? Last week I wore a pair of earrings she made me for the OTT swap. Thought I'd share:p) and the cards heffer made are very cool. I want some!

I craft so I can avoid reality.....

I love the snowman earrings! I'm wearing them right now and have gotten compliments on them from my coworkers. Cheesy They're perfectly suited for the dark, snowy day we're having.
