Ok! Finally, I'm home and family is gone and I'm settled in! I had a Christmas surprise and received my package!!

Day one. Stickers and stamps.

Day two. A homemade journal.

Day three. Bookmarks....Stella, my kitten, tried to eat one!

Day four. Cards.

Day five. A painted tote with treat inside.

Day six. Another little bag with treats inside.

Day seven. A door organizer and little note pad.

Day eight. A mug rug, coasters, and a to go cup wrap.

Day nine. Fingerless gloves.

Day ten. A scarf to match the fingerless gloves.

Day eleven. A small embroidery kit and a pillow cover.

Day twelve. A re-useable lunch bag and 2 re-useable snack bags.
My kitten ran off with these and I wasn't able to find them to take photos, but they are cool.

I might have mixed up a few of the days, but that is everything I received.

On the First Day of Christmas Quaggy gave to me....

She wanted me to have something to open on the first day so she emailed me a gift certificate to Sublime Stitching!!!  Can't wait to go browse and spend it.  Thanks so much Quaggy!

Here is what I ordered with my gift certificate (I can't believe how fast it got to me) I picked out the mini embroidery kit and some patterns.

On the second day of Christmas Quaggy gave to me...
A gift certificate to Sky Blue Pink!!!! Another fave online store that I never actually order from, so I am excited to use this.

I received my angel package from Quaggy!  I don't remember the order of the gifts so I am just gonna post em all.

Embroidery Floss

Two amazing packages for my daughter since her b-day was the 20th.  First a pillow with her name and a scrapbook/activity book that she adored

Coasters and a table runner that match the tree skirt Quaggy made me last year!

and a tin with candy

Ornaments for my kiddos.  I adore the spoons!  We are going to drill holes in the top so we can hang them on the tree.  

Pinking shears!! I so needed these and a cover for them

A thread catcher!!! I have been wanting one of these forever too!

And last but not least a mug organizer filled with all kinds of goodies!

Thank you so much Quaggy for all the super spoilage!!!

I received part of my angel package from kjbaloo!  She is the crochet queen around these parts (we work together) and knew exactly what to make me since I get to see all her creations!

She made me a really large soft cowl that I don't have a photo of right now but will get one tonight.

1st is a hat and scarf set love the colors of the yarn!

This super cute blue/gray hat

a teal hat that I adore!

and finally the most gorgeous blanket!

Can you tell she knows my style???  I can't wait to see the last few things!

I received the last few gifts from kjbaloo today and I gotta say I am in love!!

Some art off my Pinterest

A scarf made with an awesome pattern and such pretty yarn colors!

A ton of crocheted flowers that I can use for hair clips and such

and embroidery thread and jewelry findings!

From ChrisSews:

I opened this one up last night.  It's sugar scrub, peppermint lip balm and a yummy gingerbread so which I  gave to my daughter who's birthday is today!

Today I got some super wonder gift tags.  I love how these turned out!

I got a cupcake decorating kit with a super cute set of muffin cups and snowman sprinkles!!!

and to catch up I opened the last one which is a rainbow of embroidery thread!!!! I am so excited about this one Smiley  Thank you so much ChrisSews for helping make my holiday brighter.

I received a few days ago and finally got my pictures up.  My package had to come all the way from Canada to Colorado so I am tickled it got here before Christmas!!!!  Smiley

Crazy4bags spoiled us good!

Here is some of the loot she sent my boys.  I had to keep slapping hands to try to get a pic.  I know its not all there but most of it is.  They love everything and immediately put on their new socks.

Day 1   Some notepads!   I really wanted some of these.  Thanks!

Day 2  2 pairs of cute earrings!  I think made of polymer clay.

Day 3   I loved how is was just wrapped in ribbon.   I was soo curious.   2 hot pads we are already using.

Day 4  6 blue crochet ornaments.   And a lot of loose buttons.  

Day 5  2 glass ornaments. Love these!  the button one was broken but I actually have some undecorated ones I haven't used yet and I love the button idea.  I will just transfer it over.

Day 6   Rainbow slippers!!!!!   She crocheted me this lovely pair that fits great!

Day 7   I squeed when I opened this!   She did such a wonderful job on this little nativity.  I love it and it will be cherished for many years.

Day 8   I am already using this purse!  I love the green/gold beads and the weight of the handles feels wonderful in my hands.  Thank you

I lost my good camera  Sad  sorry these pics aren't as good
Day 9  mmmm yummy goodies

Day 10  a gorgoues shadowboxed frame of felt goodies and buttons like one on my wist.  Thanks!

Day 11  Coming seperately!!  can't wait

Day 12  And I am so excited about this!   I swear I will learn to knit my own socks if it kills me.  I have started to cast on the basic sock in this picture.  Purling such fine yarn is getting the best of me so far.

Day 1 - Ornaments!

Day 2- Garland

Day 3- a super neat mushroom ornament

Day 4- Blueberry Jam

Day 5- Owl necklace, and an adorable mushroom in a vial, which i had a really hard time taking a picture of..

Day6- Mustache mug, Chocolate spoons and hot cocoa

Day 7- Animal stuff. So funny, as soon as I attempted to open it my one cat came running over and would not leave the package alone. I opened it and he dug everything out and rolled in it. hahha So there was catnip toys, dog treats, turtle treats, and a ferret toy, but the cat liked that one too much to give to the ferrets.

Day 8- I believe these are mushroom coasters. But
i think they're too cute to use as coasters.

Day 9 - Beautiful feather hair clips

Day 10 - sugar scrub, wash cloth, and a soap scrub, that I HAVE to find out how to make! =]

Day 11 & day 12  I'm grouping these together because they belong together.  Hippie poppets!  I'm so excited I have tried countless times to male a poppet. But failed! Thank you chrissews!

Day 6: Christmas Tree Shirt for her unborn baby to wear next year

Day 8: I don't remember what this day was but I think it was supplies of some sort. 

Day 9: Needle Felting Kit

Day 10: Crochet Scarf

Day 11: Rabbit hat and baby cacoon

Day 12: I Spy Quilt and letter B for her baby

Ah lindyv321, that bites. It looks like she got a really great package and was spoiled even. That was such an awesome idea with the advent bracelet. I may have to steal it for my daughter when she is a bit older.

Great job lindyv321! It does suck to be flaked out on, I understand your frustration. Your angel is going to spoil you for sure!
