I was told to open the padded envelope first upon arrival of my goodies so I followed instructions and I have to tell you I cried when I open the package. This is what I received first...

A painted portrait of my sweet boy Hallo. This really took my breath away, I am so sentimental about him and love him so much. Of course I had to get a pic of him with the painting too. He is so funny haha

The cute freehand card

Is this not the coolest stocking ever?! It is so me and I absolutely love love love it!!! So colorful and it jingles...yeah baby it is the coolest one ever!!

a bag of goodies above and beyond my stokcing that was PACKED full!!

little canvas wall paintings that match my kitchen. I swear she was peeppin thru my windows LOL These are really great and I am going to put them up asap. Bonus cloth they were wrapped in is sugar skull coated!

This is inspired right off from my wist. a skull pin cushion and did she not do a wonderful job at painting it?! I could not believe the detail she put into this. Wow I wish I could paint like this!!! It is so pretty and I am totally jazzed it is all mine hehe

Another Hallo creation! The top says San Hallo di Greyhound and around the rims it says Patron Saint of Couch potatoes haha perfect!!! An awesome skull necklace was inside the box. Of course I love it!

Some yummy treats for Hallo Monster and cool cloth for me. He says that you very much, he loves da treats like his Mom haha

Mmmm more treats, some holiday socks and a soap from The Bdy Shop. Satsumo scent which smells so good. One of my fav scents from there. Hmmmm how did she know? Santa must have told her.... Wink

skullyflake ornaments right from my wist. These are too cool and will definately be a welcome addition to my holiday decorations!

Some goodies to create with. She made sure to include a symbol I love and the beads are in my birthstone! I need to make me something from these. I seem to always give everything away lol

MMMM some yummy coffee, sweet notecards with one of my other fav symbols and a gnome and mushroom decoration for my plants. Check out the detail on the gnome!!

I was totally blown away by thisbirdsabsurb's art skills. I was so spoiled and she is just amazing!!! Thanks Jen for making me such a wonderful package. I am truely greatful for the work you put into everything. Grin

They call me a redneck, and I reckon that I am

I truly love every single thing in that package!  Most of all though is the portrait of your baby.  I want art of my babies SO BAD and that is an amazing likeness to yours! 

The skull pin cushion and coffee paintings also rank among my faves from the package  Smiley

Haha!  The picture of Hallo with his painting is too cute (and see - right profile - haha!)  Painting that pin cushion was the EASY part - molding it and not have it split in half when I baked it was a whole other story! So glad you liked it all (and I swear I didn't take a drive to Michigan to look through your window!)  Wink

Thanks everyone - sweetyetevil was an inspiration to swap with - she just had tons of great ideas that fortunately I could work with. (Now if I'd gotten a partner who wanted knitting and needlepoint I woulda been in big trouble.)  Wink
