I'm back, it was sad to not be able to post pics - I took them all and then my old computer decided to corrupt the pics, camera, and memory card, who knew it could happen, but I'm back in operating order, have retaken a few pics (the ornaments have been packed away and the chocolate eaten, but I do have my FAVE pics.
Oh and funny story Beeker, my 3.5 year old niece found an origami star unpealed it and decided you must have forgotton to put her present in there. They loved the tutu's but I have not gotten a pic yet (they were getting tired by the time they opened them)
I am using it to hold my spare paper money for my road trip fund.
gourd container, using it as a decoration in my room, not sure what to put in it
gourd birdfeeder, but I won't be hanging it outside, instead I hide hersheys kisses in there and let my niece find them when she visits
it's my favourite item:)
Wood burned box, will probably use if for jewellery when we travel
There were also a box of origami stars adn boxes along with a crocheted chain for decorating my mini tree, alas, see story above about these, my niece and cat LOVED them, but luckily she sent me supplies to make more next year
She also sent sailor hats for my nieces, hopefully this summer we can get a picture when they fit, until then we packed them away so they don't get ruined because they are toooo cute.
She sent a catnip mouse for my cat (which he tore the back open on yesterday) this is the first non-homemade crochet thing he's ever played with and it was a hoot to watch him go at his mouse
She sent me a woodburning kit and a 'blank' gourd birdfeeder to make
She also sent me 2 gourd elves however those are in the back of my closet at the moment.
She sent me scrapbook stuff, and card making stuff
She also sent 8 beautiful handmade christmas cards which have been sent off into the world for others to enjoy.
Thank you so much Beeker, and I'm sorry I didn't get the pics up sooner.
