Since I think Linnybelle is up to her ears in Thanksgiving stuff, I'm going to post the stocking I made her.  I only got a picture of one of the other things because I fail at pictures, apparently, only remembering once it was all wrapped.

The stocking is made out of green suede, cream jacquard, with gold trim ...


I also included two etched mugs - one for her (with a linnea plant) and one for her boyfriend (with lego man head), a pair of earrings, a seashell angel ornament for her angel collection, and two packets of homemade hot cocoa mix.

Storebought goodies included tissues, flamingo soap, flamingo pasta (hee! I thought it was so nifty), an electronics duster for her bf, a notebook for her to write her novel ideas in, and a book on soap making.

Hopefully she can post pics when she has time!

Kaz, thanks for posting the stocking picture!  I'm sorry I didn't post pictures before now. I ran out of time before leaving for the UP and am going to attempt to post them tonight.

LOL! Murbeck, I've been doing the same thing here.  Cheesy  I've cleaned and done laundry most of the day.

Tomorrow is our annual go out in the freezing rain to pick out a Christmas tree so my husband can figure out how to fit it into/on top of his car which always brings a swath of very colorful language followed by our traditional let's go eat Mexican for lunch routine!

Yeah, it's crazy but we like it!

Maybe I should go look for a leg in fishnet stockings lamp for DH's Christmas gift, huh? ROFL

Awesome stuff so far. Finished stocking. Check Finished _o_____, check, Finshed __n_ ____e__, check. The three biggest things. Entire day to crafting. Getting the notions together and trying to come up with stuffers. Got my mojo back a little today.
