I am soooooooo sorry, I will have to post pictures tomorrow night, phone being stupid and I really need some zzzz's (& computer being stupid, I was about to post message and it deleted the content).  Try this again.  I got a cowl, crocheted ruffle scarf, wish book, yoga mat holder, beautiful jar with cut out butterflies, beautiful glass holder with christmas lights beautifully decorated on top, a gorgeous brooch.  I LOVE everything.

I hope at some point I'll find out who my secret santa is.

On the positive side of this, I should be able to get a couple action shots tomorrow night when I am out and about.  If my secret santa wants to post pictures they can go ahead, otherwise I will tomorrow night.  I am soo sorry, I was so looking forward to doing this right away.

yay!  i'm glad you like everything!   Grin  the stamp is much more halloween-ish but since it was on your wists i figured it was alright to send in a christmas swap.   Smiley
the ornament is really pretty, esp. when it captures the light.  it was hard sending it off.  i'm glad it made it in one piece.  i was so worried it'd break.
Bats are ALWAYS appropriate. Grin It's all really great. Thank you! You really nailed my color tastes and style. Cheesy

I second that statement:  Bats are ALWAYS appropriate. Grin

I received a big, stuffed, crocheted shark.  I had "giant shark stuffie" on my wist so obviously my santa paid attention . Wink  I also received a decorated hand mirror.  Unfortunately, the mirror did not make its journey in the best condition. Sad



My great white shark with a yard stick for scale:



My Santa did not identify herself in the box so I'll let her make the big reveal.

My shark has not yet revealed his name to me yet, either.  Maybe tomorrow he'll clue me in on what he wants to be called.  Maybe George, but I'm not sure, yet.

 hey tanza, i kinda realised JUST before the open that u were my secret santa... the 2hr time difference gave you away! i guess there werent too many aussies in this swap but you definately lucked out with the postage costs!! i reckon mine cost nearly $30 (aud) ..

Hannah (7yo) loves the bunny bag and the candy cane ornament... and has even claimed the gaming coasters! i did wait til 1am last night, almost hoping someone would tell me to wait to post.

The cow window sticker is already in my kitchen, and hannah claimed the reindeer one (which funny enough looks like my scottish family emblem of the Stag! i think she may give it to her grandad - which makes me extremely proud)

The reindeers embroidery is awesome... seriously know what u are saying when u mean HOURS... i recognised it straight away

As it was 1am, I forgot to mention that Tanza even MADE THE WRAPPING PAPER USING EMBROIDERY  THREAD AND WAXED PAPER!!! seriously, awesome Smiley

Best swap ever! hope my pressies are received well Smiley

Ok, I finally have pictures.

Opened box.


The whole loot. I have a brown cowl (nice and cozy warm, perfect for our weather), ruffle scarf, decorative glass box with bird on top and christmas lights within, another decorative jar with cut out butterflies, yoga mat holder (lost my picture, but I have a picture of it holding my yoga mat), wish book and brooch.


Some close ups:





Thanks so much secret santa, I look forward to seeing who you are.

I opened!!  I opened!  My fabulous Secret Santa was zcrafter!! She did an awesome job and I'm just so happy!  All I can say is that today is going to be a fantastic day!!

First off... kicking myself that I didn't have someone peek inside the box for me - it was safe to open afterall since it was wrapped!  Sigh!  It's all good - but the wrapping didn't stay on for long at all... No sirree jimmybob.  I ripped right through it all!


She sewed up these wonderful pieced baskets for me to use in my craft room. Okay, she probably didn't know where I'd use them but that is where I'm going to use them - my craft room just got a makeover and they will be fantastic in there- I really do love useful things that are pretty!!  Perfect prints for me too!

And she knitted up a hat for me based on my wists - very cool Smiley
And then she also sent me a fantastic stained glass dove to hang in my window!!  I'm not sure who crafted it up but wow!  Mad crafting skills is all I can say! Wow!  I am going to hang her up right away!


Thank you so much zcrafter!  I love it all!!
