I'm glad you like everything ORB. Cheesy

The Mend and Make Do was a super challenging piece for me. How often do I intentionally let the thread knot up, twist and cause chaos? It took me a while to relax enough to finish that piece. LOL

My daughter did not approve of your bug! I was working on it at the breakfast table and she stated quite clearly and emphatically "Mom, you can't send her an icky bug!" which just made me more determined. Wink

The altered altoid box is a needle book for holding sewing needles. I don't know enough about knitting, but if it will work to hold bits and bobs for that, it will work as well.

I have done really good not opening the kinder eggs with the toys in them, possibly since I got some as a thank you from another craftster! Smiley

And I love everything! I had two friends over and my friends son and the 2 year old was telling me which things to open next.

I hope you get yours soon!

These packages are awesome! I love the Bloopers items and I really like the doilie/embroidery piece! The altered altoid tin is way cool and I'm wisting right now. Wink

I've got tons of new stuff in my store!: http://www.etsy.com/shop/MyWyldChild?ref=ss_profile

I received from Vicious Hyperbolizer. Holy cow Rebekka--you went all out, and I loved everything so much!

When I opened up the package, I saw...

So sweet of her to stalk and find these photos of us on Facebook! Next, there was a whole box of wrapped gifties, even more than shown here. She had gifts for my cat, my hubby, and me!

My cat Murphy's stocking (which can turn into a little hand puppet to taunt him!) and treats...

Kitty exploring new toys, action shot:

Chewy SweetTarts for the hubby, plus a notebook with the slogan for his music website. We both LOVED that you did this! Smiley Hehehe

My stocking, inspired by my love of things with cute faces, and in my favorite colors, green and brown!

Pretty charm bracelet!

Extras, including embroidery floss (disguised in a cigar case!), a jar o' feathers, black polymer clay, sweets (to go inside what you'll see next)...

Awesome Stocking Advent Calendar, pulled from my Wist! I love all the fun colors and fabrics strung along the mantle. Smiley

My very own N-O-E-L frames, also inspired by my Wist.

A candle in a Christmas mug (love this) dreamcatcher, and another bracelet shot

But wait, there's more! A sewn pen/pencil roll, and a low-slung purse with matching fabric

Tried to get a group shot, but cat was in the way. Thanks so much Rebekka! You were a great and thoughtful partner! Hope you have the best Christmas Smiley

Personal swaps... Would love to trade sewn stuff for some cool hand-carved stamps.

OhEmGee, I'm so sorry it has taken so long for me to post pics! I received my package from ghilie the day before Thanksgiving, behold my Christmas Stocking glory:

The lovely stocking, with sparkly snowflake sequins. This thing is huge, I can't wait until DH has to fill it next year Cheesy

A lovely apron in one of my all-time favorite fabrics modelled in a most idiotic fashion by moi (I know you can't tell because of my pose, but it's really beautiful and well-made!)

And this may be the first time I've put her down, but she demanded to be photographed... she's a bit of a ham! My punkin! (ghilie, you are most talented Shocked)

And here's the entire package, including some Christmas-themed rubber stamps (How have I made it so many years without a "do not open before Christmas" stamp?!) and some really beautiful snowflake soaps. Hmm, there seems to be a whole bunch of candy missing... but I think we all know how that goes, right? Roll Eyes

Thank you so much ghilie, I love my package, and I'm really glad you like yours too Cheesy

lindsay - everything is so cute, the drawings really were a special touch!  Your cat is beautiful!

RedMenace - I love that apron!  Where does everyone find that fabric?!  I keep seeing it all over the place, I even have a messenger bag made of it.
