Hmmm, there's probably a whole pile of mediums hiding in that one package Wink


Thanks, loves.  Now I'm worried again.  Grin

I received today!   


That is Mikey the Monster Minion sitting there among the presents!   Cheesy   The card envelope says that I can either open the card last to try to guess who my secret santa is or open it now to learn more about Mikey the Monster Minion!   

I am eager to learn more about Mikey so I'm undecided yet as to open the card or presents first!    Wink

Thank you so very much, secret santa!    Cheesy

I've decided that if I get my trees up and the house decorated this weekend I will definitely be opening my secret santa presents.  I figure that is a great reward.... Smiley

I decided to open a few and make a guess and then read the card to see if I was right.   Cheesy

Sounds like a plan to me!

Ok!  I've taken some photos and I'm uploading them to the computer now to get some opened present pictures here in the galley to let people start guessing at who my secret santa is.   Cheesy

My secret santa did a fabulous job stalking me and finding out all my likes!   In case you are wondering about Mikey, this is what the card said about him:

A wee bit of info about your holiday monster minion.  His name is Mikey.  Mischief is his middle name.  Having said that, as long as you limit his sugar intake, he is pretty helpful around the house.  He loves to wrap presents and bake cookies.  If you really need him to lick stamps, he can do that too.   Smiley  I hope you will have fun with Mikey! 
PS  He does not like being inside a washer or dryer!!!


 Grin

Mikey is 7 inches tall from tip of horn to toe which helps to know to determine the scale of things in the photos.  Here to help with everything is Mikey.  Wink   So let's get on to the presents!   Cheesy


The first thing I opened was this bag!

So cute with all the little birds!  And the lining fabric is lovely and the perfect shade of aqua blue.   Cheesy  And its made out of a lovely soft natural fabric and so big and roomy!   



A stack of seven beautifully knitted washcloths!!    Yes!  I always want more washcloths and white ones at that!   I definitely prefer hand knit washcloths over store bought ones!   Very good stalking, secret santa!   Cheesy   


European Chocolate! 

This is awesome!  I've never heard of this until today and so the hubby and I opened it and sampled it and it is heavenly.   Thank you!   Cheesy




An adorable birdie necklace!  This is so pretty, thank you!  I love the color you picked for him, it makes me think of a cardinal.   Smiley



Beautiful bird note cards!  These are lovely and just my style!   Cheesy 



And owl bunting!!!  So cute!!!   I've been wanting one of these for a while.   Sorry for the slightly out of focus picture.  I was trying to get all the owls in frame.  I'm going to find a place to put these up this weekend.  Cheesy 
Thank you!!! 



Pretty pretty fiber!   All hand dyed.  Cheesy  There is a merino, a BFL and the ball is domestic wool.   Thank you, secret santa!  I love fiber!!!   Cheesy 



And Mikey is showing off the beautifully handspun and hand dyed yarn!  This was such a treat to find when I opened it.  Cheesy  Thank you so much!!!   Cheesy


Everything is so beautifully made and done with such thoughtfulness and attention to detail.  I love and appreciate every single thingl!!  Thank you so very much, secret santa!!!    Kiss

So lovely!  What a haul!  I'm going to second atsuko's guess of L2E b/c of the adorable owl bunting.  And the awesome bird notecards... Great package!
