Well, I had hoped ironic would post pics of what I sent her.  So, I guess I'll post pics.  Sorry for the less than perfect pics.  I didn't think I would be posting them.  










I made three mobiles for her.  A whimsical deer, a reindeer, and a moose.  I attached clay birds, a clay snowflake, a clay half moon, and a clay barren tree, and a felt bird.  I sculpted the clay, and sewed and painted the animals.  I also painted her a watercolor duck picture, a water color evergreen not pictured, because I couldn't get it to unroll nicely for the pic, I made her a scarf w/reindeer on it, and a small, jointed stuffed bear on all 4's.  I sent her a bag of cinnamon sticks, a gold snow flake ornament, a bag I made w/chocolate truffles in it, a skein of cool looking yarn, a box of small candles that I think were supposed to smell like peppermint, and a small carved wooden reindeer that I painted.  Also a Rockford Red heeled sock reindeer.  She told me that the Post Man complimented her on the reindeer mobile.

I love the sock reindeer!! That is such a cute idea, and being a lover of sock monkeys it  would fit right in.

Here are my lovely gifts from Ffrogg526!

A beautiful clay tile, winter-themed plaque:

I have this on my mantel with a bunch of other awesome knick knacks Smiley

An amazing wavy (crocheted) scarf that alters between white yarn and blue/green variegated yarn:

I'm already wearing it Cheesy

An awesome forest green (knitted) scarf for my fiance:

I love the design in the knit!

And she also sent me a huge jar of home-mixed hot chocolate mix with minty goodness inside Grin I have already had one big mug of it, and I intend to have another tonight when I get back home.  (you can see the top of the jar behind the plaque...

And everything together:

(You can see the green scarf better here...)

First a lovely, lovely hoop!



I love all the details.




A sweet little quilt/mug rug.



A crocheted cuff.  I love the button!!! I found out this is also a cup cozy!  love that use too



And an infinity scarf!!!



a not so great action shot.  ( My 6 year old took some pics)



I love the color, the chunky yarn and the scalloped edges.  Thank you so much for everything TroubleT!!!  :*

Here are my wonderful items I received from Solitary Cricket



There are a few cute christmas tree decorations along with spices and a couple recipes.



This is the hat and scarf I got for my niece. Who loves it by the way. I wanted to get a pic with her wearing it but she has gone out with her daddy to run errands so maybe I will get a chance later. She did wear while we went to the post office earlier and got a lot of compliments already! Thanks! Very cute! I wish I could crochet like that@!
