I have finally found time to open my gift.  My secret santa was Cassiecate57.  She did a wonderful job stalking me, got me perfectly. 

She sent me homemade soy candles with a Jimmy Buffett theme...the candles were Coconut telegraph, Grapefruit Juicyfruit, Fruitcakes, and Last Mango in Paris...for those of you who don't know Jimmy those are all song titles, and each scent goes along with the song.  I love love love them.  Almost hate to burn them.  lol  We did have a mishap, one of the glasses broke but the candle was unharmed so I'm just going to break the rest of the glass off and put it into a new holder. 


The small container in the picture is a coconut lemongrass soap she purchased off etsy.  It smells good and is very thick I can't wait to use it. 

I love it all very much but I'm so excited because she made me or actually got her mom to make me Smiley  a pair of blue arm/wrist warmers.  I have wanted a pair for soooo long but can't knit at all.  I work for the St Louis Blues NHL team and the building is about a constant 48 to 50 degrees this time of year I hate having to wear long sleeves everyday but now I can wear short sleeves with my new warmers.  Yay!!!!!

Thank you sooooo much I love it all.  It really made my week which was actually quite bad, a little brighter.  Thanks again.

I got such a thoughtful (and spoiling!) gift from plucky1_08!  Yay for presents!!  I got 3 pretty painted picture frames, a beautifully painted clock and fun mailbox for my son's new fort, and my bought gifts were a yummy vanilla candle, a fun Coca-Cola tin (I'm a collector), and some delicious black licorice.  Thank you sooo much!

I love planning parties - come to me if you need any ideas!

I'm sorry I didn't pack the package well enough Sad

Alas, I hope you enjoy it. I had fun making your package and my mom has been interested in Craftster for the longest time. One day I'll give her the swapping bug...

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

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!

I am glad that you like them as Christmas ornaments because that is what they are actually Wink  They have a hanger hole on them for you.
I did know that you played French horn - that's why I made them!

I am also becoming extremely nervous - my recipient has not posted in.  I am beginning to think she was not happy at all with what I had sent to her.  Cry

Don't be silly craftydeb, I'm sure she loved it! She might have gotten wasted at an xmas party or something last night...you never know Wink

I'm back after a long hiatus. Not doing any big swaps right now but feel free to message me for small ones and supply exchanges. I have a bunch of fabric that I'd like to swap for different supplies!

Okay, I know I posted here last night but for some reason I don't see my post anywhere!    My partner sent me some really awesome stuff that I LOVE!

Here's a group shot:

A close up of the awesome artwork she sent straight from my wist!

The beautiful necklace, the colors in this are amazing:

This super cool feather headband, I wanted one of these so bad and I love this one, I have been studying it to see how to make more for myself:

These really cute hairpins:

she also sent me a brooch that is just like the orange one.

And look at this adorable mug with my name on it!

she also included an extra decal like the one used on the mug, some yummy looking coffee, chocolates and a sweet bird ornament that I forgot to take a picture of because it's already on my tree!

Thanks so much to my partner!  I love everything and you really got my personality.  I can't wait to wear my necklace and hair stuff at the holidays.

What an awesome Christmas party we have all had together. There are truly amazing items being posted.

Don't worry about it at all....when I saw the broken glass I was worried that maybe the candle had been damaged and it's still perfect so I think I can get it out and use a different holder.  Thanks again.
