I'm trying to make it to midnight, but my eyes are like sandpaper.  And, I'm so tired that I can't even crochet!  Crazy, I know, but I'd end up unravelling anything I attempted right now because I'd find 100 mistakes in tomorrow morning.

Hmmmmm, time to stream something on netflix.

it's 11:57pm.  I'm tempted to wait 3min and rip open my package!

edit: ok, it's 12:01am, December 19th.  Here's a pic of what I opened up to...now excuse me while I go open all these amazing presents.  And yes, that is a little penguin (needlefelted?) sitting on my package from my secret santa Smiley  he's so cute!

Haha that's awesome! My hubby got so excited he decided to open my package for me... just the outter box, and the entire time he was making the box exclaim obscenities about slicing it open. He showed me the many (and I mean many) wrapped presents in the box, but I will NOT open them for another 50 minutes... hehe, now excuse me, my hubby is doing the butt shimmy- I must go. lol!

ok ok, so here are the pictures!

First, some crocheted stars:


an AWESOME pencil roll- I love it!  I already stuck a bunch of pens in it, and now my desk is super clean Wink


and some cute little charms- I'm fascinated by the little frames and can think of uses for them already:


and finally, the most amazing thing of all...a matching tote bag!  with lots and lots of pockets, inside and out, to help me keep everything organized.  It's black on the outside, but I'm fairly certain that it's reversible, which makes it even cooler.  the green fabric's too pretty to hide anyways.  

bag looks a bit weird flat, but I couldn't seem to stuff it enough to get a good picture of it so I ended up taking a picture of it like that.  it's perfect for my textbooks though, just the right size!

and the bag inside out:


also not pictured is a cute emery board (?) with buttons all over it.  

I was so, so spoiled, and I LOVE everything!  Everything is just so 'me', from the penguins to the colours and the style.  Thank you so much to my secret santa...........belladune!  you're amazing <3

The bag is amazing!!!  I also love how she color schemed everything.

I can't believe there aren't more packages posted.  I guess everyone is not nutso enough to open at midnight. Grin

Only 14 more minutes.

I'm next! I was actually watching a movie and forgot about the time. Cheesy When I realized it was almost 1am I decided to open it up.

I never even opened the outer wrapping on the box, so when I did, here was what was under:



And the presents wrapped up within:


And everything all together:


A mini duffel style bag, a beautiful snowflake ornament, a lino carved bat stamp, a tin of "crafty girl" mints, and hand crocheted wrist warmers!

Close ups (please ignore the awful lighting and the pine needles all over my floor.)







The last thing I read was the card. An my secret santa is.... Puppy_girl! Thank you so much for the lovely items! The colors and styles are great. Very me. I can't wait to try out the stamp too. The snowflake is so pretty and will definitely look great on my tree.

This was a very fun swap and I really enjoyed it. (Even if Love thought I was crazy for actually waiting to open it all this time!)  Grin

OOOoooo!!!  Beautiful loot!   That ornament is wonderful!


Well, the person I santa'd is in the eastern time zone.  So, she must've gone on to bed and will be one of the ones who opens tomorrow.  I hope she likes her stuff.  



ETA:  LOLOLOLOL  Nevermind!  She just PM'd.  Too funny timing.

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.
