Everybody's stuff so far is so cool! That cowl that was made with just fingers, came out pretty awesome! All of us have done some pretty darn sweet stuff for our partners to have a special Christmas. Wink

And since Craftsers finally let me upload my pics, now it's my turn to post all the AWESOME presents from Aiki. She is so bummed that her gifts won't compare to what me and my family have sent her, but she has sent us some really awesome things. And we're just happy to know that her and her son had a very special Christmas with everything that we have done for them. Now for the awesome gifts. Grin

My daughter, Oceana was the first to open her gifts and the first thing she opened was this really cute shiny black purse. She immediately fell in love with it and put it around her neck and shoulder right away. Cheesy

A really cute and soft scarf that Aiki crocheted for her. Everything she received from Aiki, she immediately stuffed inside her new purse after it was opened. Cheesy I sent Aiki lots of pics so she can see just how much Oceana loved everything.

There was this very cute pink butterfly shawl. Can you tell how much she loves it? LOL!

Then Aiki's son was very thoughtful and sent Oceana some of his old cars. You might think it weird that he would send her cars since she's a girl, but it's normal to us. She's a complete girly-girl with a BIG love for Hot Wheels. Roll Eyes She was really excited to get these.

Aiki also sent Oceana a small box of whimsies that had some cute pink button earrings, some Halloween stickers, which the 2 boxes shown were really 3 and they were immediately opened and used. Cheesy Some Halloween kitty stickers and a ribbon with Hello Kitty.

Next was all my stuff. Aiki's son was thoughtful again and sent me a lot of skull and crossbones candy. I'm guessing Aiki told him I like skulls and such. Wink

A really awesome skull patch.

A BIG strand of shiny purple beads. I already know what I'm going to do with these! Wink

And even though Aiki doesn't like spiders, (she says they make her squirm) she sent me these lovely little spiders, cause I love spiders. And these are just so cute!

Now this just made me LOL ROTFL! It's an coffee cup that says "You asked for half a cup of coffee", but when you look at it from the top, it's actually half a cup! Cheesy Cheesy

Then I got this really cute octopus stuffy. He's so cute!

A book that sounds really interesting. I can't wait to start on it. Smiley

5 old patterns. Aiki really gave these some thought, cause they are all from the year I was born. I'm going to be putting these patterns to some good use Aiki. Wink

3 really cute frog pins! I LOVE these!

A really cute frog pendent. I need to figure out something good to use it with, it deserves something special since it's from Aiki. I couldn't get a good enough pic, but you can see it some what.

Some really cute hair clips. They pink and black buttons are my favorite colors. Aiki, Nathan loves the keyboard keys ones, he says, "Your wearing those to our next Microsoft fair!" LOL!

Some really cute frog eye (I think they look like frog eyes, but could be cat eyes too) hair clips and earrings! I LOVE THESE!!

4 skeleton hands hair barrettes! There's one missing, cause as soon as I opened this present and saw what it was, I immediately took the clip I had in my hair out and put one of these. Cheesy

And the best thing EVER! About 2 or so yards of black, glittery, cat eyes fabric! I REALLY LOVE THIS!!

THANK YOU SO MUCH AIKI!! There is no need to feel bad, we LOVE EVERYTHING! We over here love you guys too and I'm really glad that that one night of insomnia and random searching brought you poking around my neck of the woods! Your a really great person and I'm so glad to have met you! And don't think this is the end to all the PMing, e-mailing and late night chatting! LOL! Wink Cheesy I'll let you know when I send out your guys last box of mislaid presents. Again... THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

Jigarkhwar  I am happy everything arrived in one piece.

The memo board is for you to attach to your fridge or filing cabinet so that you will have sticky notes close by, you are suppose to place a pen on the part that sticks out, so your pen will be near by.  I altered a pen, forgot to pack it, and then lost it again (I am in the process of packing and moving).  I also think I found some more things I forgot to send you but once again everything is disarray and you may have to wait until next Christmas to get them. 

The lighted box gets really hot when left on for an extended amount of time so please place it on a candle dish so that it does damage your furniture.

I really love my stuff and the Angel is my favorite.  Thanks so much.

I'll let you know when the 2nd box in en route, frogangel.  It's a money issue, plain and simple.  Glad you like your loot so far!

Ah, it's no problem. Send whenever you can, I understand. Just cross your heart you'll send it... CROSS IT! CROSS YOUR HEART! LOL! I watch to many movies. Cheesy  And yes the owl mug is hilarious! I was was cracking up so much with it and now it sits on my little crafting table in my living room, so I can get a giggle every time I sit down. Cheesy Thanks again, your the best-est in the west-est! Cheesy

I am so glad that you liked everything spolowitz!  I too want to be Martha Stewart (without the jail things :-) ) and I love scrapbooking paper so it was a really fun gift to purchase.  I did not make the squirrel ornament, I just redid it.  I bought the ornament but it had all sorts of other stuff attached to it so I took all the unnecessary stuff off and rebarked him...I guess the word is I refurbished him.
