I didn't have time to take pictures today, but I will try to post some tomorrow. I'll have you know though, I already wore my hat and I love it so much. I just felt so awesome the whole time had it on. Lol. Smiley

I just wanted to share what I sent. I was Secret Santa for RhymeswOrange and she hasn't had a chance to post pictures yet so here's the package I made for her.

First off, here was the entire package:



The store bought items included Christmas Socks, cupcake shaped soap, body lotion, bath bombs, and some chocolate. The handmade items included a soap (made by a friend of mine) a Peridot Tree of Life pendant and a chain mail bracelet.


One of the number one things on her list was a chain mail bracelet. I'd never made one before so I learned how to do it just for this swap! Grin



She also had one of my Tree of Life pendants on her wist. But she requested in the notes that it have a silver outer ring, copper branches and Peridot. Done!



I didn't get any pictures of it all wrapped up, but every item was also wrapped in Christmas paper to make it more fun.

I was so excited about this swap since it was fun learning how to do the chain mail. (Ok, it was frustrating because the first time I had the wrong directions and I sat there for like two hours trying to figure out what I was doing wrong! But once I figured it out, I was so proud of the accomplishment and how neat it was when it was done!)

I hope you've enjoyed it RhymeswOrange. Smiley

Hey guys, sorry it took me so long to post pictures. I finally got around to it today. Smiley My secret santa was Lapoli, and she is too great!


First, the #1 thing I wanted, Bella's eclipse hat!!!! Cheesy I love this so much and have already worn it a lot.


Next, a cowl straight from my wists! It's my favorite color and it's sooo cozy.


Some felted soap. It smells so good!


And the bought item, some yummy-looking coffee that I can't wait to try.


Thank you so much! I truly love and appreciate everything you sent. It's all being put to good use! Cheesy Merry (late) Christmas.

lapoli and applesandpumpkins- what a great package! I'm oggling the greatness of that hat and cowl! They do look absolutely cozy ^_^ And the felted soap looks great, too!

phoenixfiredesigns- You did an excellent excellent job with that chainmaille bracelet! It's so shiny ^_^ And as usual, your tree of life pendant is beautiful!
