I think my package from Troublet is waiting for me to pick it up  Grin I like coming back from vacation to swap packages. Now only if I could come back and not have to go to work? That would be fantastic.

I received a wonderful package from Troublet! I knew it was at the apartment complex office, but every time I asked she said it wasn't there. I finally asked if I could go look with her. Found it immediately. Grr. I thought about telling her how much frustration and anger she put me through, DOESN'T SHE KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE TO WAIT FOR A SWAP PACKAGE?!?!?! Boo.

Anyways, here is my amazing package!

I raced home to my package, ripped it open and found all my lovely swap items packaged in Christmas wrapping paper (I adore wrapping paper, and I even save it for collages, re-wrapping, etc. I'm a nerd!)


The first package I ripped open my lovely boy was like "ooo can we use it now? It smells good" I of course  had to tell him it's for Christmas time! SO basically the day after thanksgiving!
A Cinnamon Hot Pad! It smells amazing.


Next I opened my snowflake ornaments! We are in dire need of Christmas ornaments for our Christmas tree and I love snowflakes! I don't know however how she got them to stay stiff, I stared at it for at least 5 minutes before the boy said, "okay, come back to it, I want to see what else is in there"


The gingerbread man was in there! He's so adorable, and another ornament  Grin He looks good enough to eat! (If I wouldn't get a mouth full of stuffing!


Last but certainly not least! I opened it and the boy said "Yes, a calendar you have to put candy in for me to eat!" Which is what I thought too UNTIL I saw the cards that went into it! Gah!  Cheesy It's a calendar with 25 days for Christmas with cards that go in each slot containing questions on the other side! I can't wait for Christmas in my classroom so I can hang it up! I'm a writing teacher, so I will be able to ask these questions everyday and some days they will even get a treat! I can't wait! I showed it to my teacher buddies when I got to school this morning (setting up my classroom today, haven't started yet though, TG)

Whole Calendar

Thank you so much Troublet! It's amazing! I can't wait for Christmas![/size][/size]

Doh! I also forgot to mention that the Candy Cane and Music cards were for while your students were working in class. A bit of holiday inspiration to help them get through to Christmas. Smiley

YAY! I'm so glad you like everything!

I used watered glue. I tried starch but never got the flakes as stiff as I wanted. Smiley

Water glue? What's that! lol My mom came over and was like oooo I might have to steal some of these snowflakes! Psh. Yeah right! She has years of collecting ornaments! The boy and I together only have about 15, 4 of those would be from Troublet  Grin

I love the music and Candy Cane ideas! I love Christmas music and I'm happy I get to teach in a catholic school because now I know I can play my music at Christmas time! And I am even going to put a tree up in my classroom! Probably a fake one and have my kids make ornaments for it. Just think, in a few years I will have hundreds!  Shocked I can't wait for the day after Thanksgiving when I can decorate!
