I received from superhooker!!! I am going to try hard to be a good girl and wait until Christmas to open my packages. I probably won't make it though.  Lips sealed Cheesy

Check out all the presents and the stocking!! There's more in the stocking and it is HUGE!!!



Close-up of the stocking- penguins!!! I *love* penguins!!! And superhooker made this pattern just for me!



And there were 4 packages marked "Open Now". Within those packages...



Homemade FUDGE, CINNAMON BRITTLE (hubby is allergic to peanuts, so this brittle he can have!), chocolate covered ESPRESSO beans, and an entire LOAF of beer and cheddar spice bread!!  Shocked  superhooker, I am in awe of your cooking skills. I've already sampled everything but the bread and it is all soooo good.

*super happy dance around all the baked goodies and giant stocking of awesomeness*

Great stuff all.  Early Christmas for craftsters!

I received a great stocking from celticgoddess today, here are some pics.

Everything together.  We did a medium swap and everything still was spilling out of the stocking.


So, of course I opened this one immediately because Spooky the housecat MUST have her items first.
(Shameless cute cat photos ahead.)

It looks like such a harmless kitty toy, but Spooky is a catnip-fiend!

She chases it down to the carpet and goes crazy.  She kept playing until she started to get pissy (10 min or so) and I had to take it away from her.  She was overstimulated.  Good work, celticgoddess; she loves it.


A closeup of the stocking alone.  A wonderful knit stocking, with sparkly, fuzzy black trim, a rust colored ribbon hanger and a black rose adornment.  That rose makes a nice hair decoration, too.  Thanks.


Ornaments!  We have a non-traditional winter holiday that ends up part solstice, part Christmas, part Halloween and part Mexican fiesta.  These are perfect!  I thought the witch with a red nose was my favorite until I got to the wacky bat, now I can't decide.


A knit kitty, which I requested based on celticgoddess' previous crafts.  She sits on my monitor now, warning me it is time to make dinner.  Thank you!


A dandy scarf.  Let me tell you that as a WY resident, you can NEVER have too many scarves!  This one is surprisingly heavy and dense, from a black and a sparkly silver yarn.  Love this combination, thank you.



More stuffers, in addition to the pounds of candy you see in the first photo, she sent these chocolate wafer things I've never heard of, but turned out to be my husband's favorite childhood candy.  He was pleased to make their reacquaintance and thanks you.  There is also a red-flashing strobe skull (YEA!) and a small, lacy snowflake, stiffened so it can hold its own on a tree branch.

Thank you, celticgoddess.  It was all marvelous.

Okay get ready for Photo Over Load! SEZOULI YOU ARE AWESOME! We had so much fun unwrapping everything. The girls decided that they were practicing for Christmas!
Here is the 30lb package after opened...


We got the most awesome stockings! I absolutely loved them! Sezouli did not only make 1 stocking! She made 4 stockings!




Sezouli made my girls their own creature that they designed...


We all love Mario! My husband freaked when he opened all of his things. We both loved the bullet usb! Sezouli is so crafty and creative!






And lastly my favorite thing in the whole box. Two adorable water color portraits of my girls that were all ready framed! Hailey and Chloe were also really excited when they saw the pictures of themselves Smiley

I cannot say thank you enough to Sezouli. I never would have imagined that I would have got a package like this. This is by far the best package I have ever got from a swap!

I received from Sarcastra today! Hubby (works for the town) has spent all day at work. When I got the mail I told him I got my package and he took a 10 minute break to come home and see what I got. ALMOST lost the stocking to him!

Pictures! The stocking! It is awesome! I wish I had a fireplace, but it will hang on the wall so everyone can see it!



Closeup. I love the black on black stars!



Make-up bag! I love the skulletons. Not to much at all!



Jewelry! Necklace and chunky bracelet! I love the charms, I must have spent 30 min. looking at them all.



Candles! The smell so good! I'm going to wait until solstice to light them. Thank you!



Ribbons!



I'm really excited about this body butter. With my allergies, it's hard to find lotions. I can't wait to try this on!



Present tags! I love them, and found more after I took the pic. LOL



Lavender Sugar, Wonderful Soap, and a bath bomb. When I get a night I don't have to bake, I'm taking a long soak in the tub!



Coffee and Tea! Yum!



Brownies!



Yarn! Corn yarn. I haven't knitted with corn before!



Buttons!! I love them! I can think of a friend or two getting one as well!



And last pic! Mulling spices. OMG, they smell so good. I can't wait to get some cider and try these spices!

Wow I checked the gallery only a few hour ago and there are four more stockings received since then.   Everything is lovely all the knitted stocking are so well done.  I especially love the one with penguins knitted on it.  Those crocheted head wraps are so cute.  All that homemade candy looks yummy.

I got my package today from polkadotts.  She sent me a great package and I hope to get pictures up sometime tomorrow.  I am just to tire to take picture tonight.  The fragrance is lovely she included a herbal heating pad I don't know what the smell is but I know it will be very relaxing.  Pictures are coming soon.
