So while rearranging the gifts under the Christmas tree, the hubby pointed out that there are three days left til christmas and there are six gifts in my advent calendar box.  Note that I already opened one for today. I'm not sure what happened lol

Ooops!  I must have miscounted or they were breeding on the way there. Grin

I have not heard from my partner is some time so I thought I would just post some pics of the things I sent.

The calendar itself was a wreath.


The compartment for each day was covered by a little numbered pillow


A small clickable picture of my bought items:


heart and brain patches (My partner studied anatomy so I stitched these up for her)


Mini Christmas cross-stich kits


A Grinch Ornament


A monster change purse


A hollow egg ornament (not sure why this picture ended up being so small)


A "Fallout" patch for her boyfriend


A dragon stuffie


two skull ornaments (her wist was full of skulls)

I am kind of ridiculously proud of the back of the day of the dead skull (though I do not seem to have gotten a very good picture of it).


Last two crafts: a wavy pleats zip from my partners wist


and the Christmas craft was this large pleated purse.

I was so excited when I found this fabric. It has skulls (which my partner indicated that she loves) with hot pink bows (she listed hot pink as one of her favorite colors). The zip above is lined in the skull fabric so that the two items coordinate.
Merry Christmas.

The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese. . . . I would rather have cheese.

It's been crazy here.  The power went out and we had to have falafal at the Greek place down the street instead of the Christmas dinner I planned.  Other stuff happened.  Long story short, I'll be posting the rest of my pictures either tomorrow or Tuesday.  I didn't forget!

Feel a little wistful that I don't get to open goodies from my partner everyday for another year.....*sigh*  But that would be a bit too much crafting for everyone. 

Thrilled with my goodies Cheesy updated gallery for the last time. Sad

Thanks for being an amazing partner DesignVigilante.

Well, I don't think my partner is able to post pics Sad This was an interesting swap. It was very cool to see all the different types of calendars and to see all the mini things floating out in the world. I hope everyone had a good Christmas.

Hi everyone! To most of you I want to say thank you for a great swap and thank you for participating.

Unfortunately, I am very disappointed in a couple of you who have had very un-holiday like attitudes in this swap. Here's a few things I would like you to remember this holiday season:

1.) It's better to give than to receive.

2.) If you can't say something nice, please don't say anything at all.
