Yay!! superhooker, you are so sweet to post pics when running late!  Kiss
I'm most proud of the soup bowl- it took me several tries to get the hands to look right. I can't remember if I wrote this in my note or not, but the paints I used on all the porcelain items is dishwasher resistant. I've run things I've painted through the dishwasher several times without any fading.
The soap, candles, and drawstring bag were made by other crafters. And the knitters tags were in a PhatFiber box I purchased- they were made by Knit It Up on etsy.
I need to make some more notebooks for myself- I was really happy with how they turned out. So snarky.  Cheesy

I've opened superhooker's gifts and everything is awesome!!! I will be posting pics after I finish my coffee and change out of my pajamas.  Grin

Check out all my goodies from superhooker!!!

Wine carrier (with built in wine opener! Awesome!) and bottle already claimed by my hubby for taking coffee to work.


Book by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee!!! How did you know I follow her blog?! http://www.yarnharlot.ca/blog/
3-D penguin sculptures (hubby wants to help put them together) and mittens!!! So soft and cozy- I love them!!


Doggie treats and toys! Jax and Milo were not happy when I took away their new toys for a quick picture.  Cheesy


Cute birdie ornaments, an awesome camera ornament, and a beard for festive wearing. hehehe


Fun kitchen tools! Whipped honey (yummy!!) and honey still in the comb.


Penguin with a knit scarf!!! I have named him Penguino.  Grin


Peppers from superhooker's garden, incredibly yummy smelling soaps, a bath bomb, and hand salve that I need desperately in this dry weather!


FIBER!!! "Springy" on the left and "Freestyle's Living Room" on the right. I laughed *so hard*- the colors are perfect!!! My living room walls are chocolate brown and I have deep blue, cream, and white furnishings.  Cheesy


More FIBER!!! Shetland wool, a baggie of suri alpaca, and fake cashmere (so soft!!)


YARN!!! This is some of the most beautiful yarn on the face of the planet!! I love is soooooo much. It's a wool/silk blend and it is absolutely stunning.


And more yarn!!! Three small skeins of 100% silk (!!) and a plied brown/blue yarn that is terrific.


And one more shot of the super-huge super-cool stocking.


Thank you so much superhooker!!! Everything was wonderful and I had so much fun opening all my presents. You rock!!!

Mmm.. fiber fiber fiber. My amazing mother got me a spinning wheel for Christmas (my first!), so that fiber looks particularly enticing. Grin

Hehe! Those heart shaped pancake molds are one of the things I gave my folks for Christmas. They love their pancakes! Smiley


Well, GH's stocking got great use today!! Santa stuffed it up good and full! It looked really nice hanging up, but felt great to unload again this morning! Wink

The original stocking that she made with the teddybears has gone to a good home. My boyfriend has a young cousin who recently had a baby. They're stretching to make ends meet and I thought she would really love it for baby's first Christmas. So thank you GH for still including it in the swap, it'll really warm her heart. <3

AHH! I have been dropping hints (as in "all i want for cmas is a spinning wheel"- BIG HINTS) that I wanted a spinning wheel. I got earrings. I don't wear earrings. Why would he get me earrings? But I would feel bad about grumbling. So instead I will grumble about not being able to grumble about more-than-hints not having any affect.

Maybe he didn't know where to get one? I wouldn't have a clue.
