Wow, Homerof2. Nice package.  Beautiful stained glass tulip.

Hey, Puppy-girl, yes, I'm your secret santa.

I'm glad you like everything.  I got lucky with the colored leather.  Walked into the leather shop and there is was, in the scrap bin, and just the right size.

And the wood is hickory, something that I rarely get here.  So I felt like everything was just right.

And my life partner makes those reusable bags.  I just "borrowed" a couple of them.

More pretty goodies to look at! And I, too, am enjoying seeing the randomness of stuff in this swap!

Belladune - That is a huge dining room set! And the fact that it's all reversable is too cool! And that is the cutest monster ever! I'm so glad it's fun for the whole family, even the cat! LOL!
Puppy_girl - You totally got your secret santa guess on the nose! hehe! Can I just say that I will be wisting that woodbound journal? Oh yeah... it's absolutely gorgeous!
Homerof2 - Ooh! I'm loving that stained glass tulip! It shines so nicely in your window Smiley And those tulip placemats are quite beautiful, too!

So, now its my turn to show what I received in my package of mystery! I received presents from not one, not two, but 12 of you lovely ladies out there! My eyes went wide after opening the box and seeing all the pressies! I got the most spoiled of all! Thank you all so much! I very much enjoyed organizing this swap and was very thankful that we didnt get any flakers! What a pleasant way for my first foray into organizing swaps to end! Thank you for all your love and I hope you all enjoyed the swap, too!

So, now, onto pictures!

See, I told you that my tree threw up! And theres my package there in the front!


Secret Santa Surprise *Do not open till Dec 19*


Myklia 3 gorgeous crocheted bookmarks (which will be used promptly) (I adore the blue one, its so soft!) and some blue and green beads for jewelry!
Craftydeb This one made my jaw drop. Did you know that I used to play French horn? These lovely little French horn appliqus will actually be turned into Christmas ornaments to hang on my tree!
Blupaisan Some fun pink bubble-wrap! And the most gorgeous hand-painted owl night light ever! I squealed when I opened this one!!!
And lower left hand corner shows the card I got explaining everything! Santa moves and winks! Its too cool!


Carrieme 2 coffee cup sleeves for starbucks and a gift card for some starbucks coffee! I love the fabrics she used on these! Too pretty!
Homerof2 Another ornament to put on my tree! Its a crocheted bell and the stitches on it are so incredibly tiny! Just wow! Wow! Love it! ^_^
Stellato_escuro Yummy-looking orange-flavored hot chocolate which will probably get drank sometime today and a beautiful coffee cup sleeve to match! I love the abstract design on it Smiley


MsMia Made my package smell wonderful with all sorts of bath-time soak stuff! Theres a gingerbread body scrub, vanilla milk bath, chocolate milk bath, and a salts n soda bath soak. I also got some gingerbread tea and some green tea Smiley My hubby thanks you very much for the teas! (as he steals them away!)
Belladune A very very much needed pincushion! And its so large! And its in my all-time favorite color combo (teal-ish blue and brown!). I keep running my finger over the pretty ribbon- so smooth and pretty oooh!
Sherrie B, UT The most awesome X-mas slippers (never had slippers like these before!) They fit my feet perfectly and are cushy and warm Smiley I also got some Swiss hard mint candies that are quite yummy!


SimplyFabulous! Long sleeved Dirty Dancing stenciled t-shirt that I had seen on another swap I had been in! Only I think that SimplyFabulous! did it so much better! Im so glad you decided on the large shirt Smiley I hope that one day soon I will be back down into mediums and maybe even eventually back down into a small! But I love the shirt its so pretty and so soft! And take a look at the awesome origami tree card! So pretty!


Sarahj2001 Very bright red fingerless gloves! They fit me like a you-know-what! ^_~ They really do! I actually wore them throughout the entirety of opening the rest of my presents!
Aikibookworm A very pretty wispy, fluffy, blue hat thats so incredibly soft! Loving the light blue color on it too! Yay!


Im really just about speechless at all the wonderful items! To whomever had the idea, thank you and to Sarahj2001, thank you for going through the trouble to organize this! Im just- wow! I totally love all you guys!

My partner's camera batteries died so she said that it would be helpful if I could post pics.  I was KidWithKemikals's santa.  

Group shot of smalls/extras:

cookie cutter set (bought item), hair barrettes (based on her requests), a baggie of extras (kwk - please describe that list, I don't have a spread out photo of those), and a washcloth made to look like an EVP from Ghost Hunters.  The medium is a Gryffindor house colors scarf and hat set based on items from her wist and that she specifically requested something she could wear to Christmas dinner.



Close up of the barrettes:



Close up of the scarf and hat set:



I need to let my partner do the describing and explaining.  My best friend just called, and I'm invited to ride to the city with them for the afternoon.  No way I'm missing a chance to escape!  They'll be here any minute, and I've gotta scoot.  

*hugs kidwithkemikals*

tag team posting going on here Wink

the baggie has all sorts of yummy tea and cocoa in it
I cant wait to try the Republic of Tea pomogranate

and truthfully the picture of the scarf and hat dont do it justice because its the EXACT Gryffindor colours.. its amazing and I love them so much.. the scarf is so soft and warm Ive been wearing it in the house lol

Im also a big GH geek so not only did I get an EVP washcloth (Let me do my Steve impression now.. "EVP stands for Electronic Voice Phenomenon and it allows us to hear voices we might not be able to hear with our ears") but she sent me a GH patch  too Cheesy

I think Im going to wear the hair clippies to work tonight

Hugs.. thanks again!

I couldn't stand the idea that you would do all the work and not get any pressys today!!  I'm so glad you love everything from everyone.  It turned out to be a wonderful package!
