I have the privilege of receiving the first package!

Casey1201 sent me a messenger bag for my daughter, a pair of earrings for my mom and a surprise snowball for me! Cheesy

http://i303.photobucket.com/albums/nn159/bajita42/IMG_1941.jpg

Here's a close up of the earrings.

Casey1201 gave me permission to open my snowball. I had stated that I would wait but last week was super stressful with my husband ending up in the ER. He's fine but it took me a couple of days to destress. I took Casey up on her offer! Look at all of the goodies that she put in that snowball...

I think my favorite bits are the Going Postal patch and the pom pom trim. Cheesy

Thank you Casey1201!

Hi everyone Cheesy Just joined the swap. I had soooo much fun in last year's OHLS and I can't wait to get started on this year. KittyKill I have the absolute most fabulous idea for an altered tin ornament for you - alas you had already been claimed by the time I was approved for the swap. Doh! Hopefully I can catch you again when you post your next claim.

I just received a super amazing package from KerrieRou. It is okay to be jealous. She totally spoiled me. I can't believe how much she sent. Plus what she sent couldn't be more perfect. My boyfriend was impressed and that is hard to do.

I am really horrible at taking pictures, but here is what she sent.


Everything was custom-made for the likes of the person who was getting it. I thought she was just going to send a couple items, she sent a whole bunch.
My parents each got a tin (like for candy). my dad's has a picture of his dog Rosita and my mom's has a picture of us. She also sent a Detroit Lions bottlecap opener for my dad, a compact mirror with my picture on it for my mom, a keychain and magnet for my best friend, family guy magnets, magnets of our town in 1915, a whole pad of scrap booking paper, and green tic tacs (they are hard to find here). She really went above and beyond.  The magnets of our town were supposed to be gifts for some locals. But as soon as my boyfriend saw them I knew at least one would be gone. He absolutely loved them. He said there was no way we could give them away. He now has one in his area and I have the other on my mini fridge in my office ( I have a whole board of magnets, but the best ones goes in the "place of honor", which is the mini fridge).  Well, they would have made great gifts  Grin But I would say making my boyfriend that happy was even better Cheesy and I really like it too and don't want to part with it either, so I can't blame him completely  Wink

Yep, nice catch. We call her Rosita, she calls herself "queen of the universe".

Updated my wishlist as I seem to have stalled the swap temporarily. There's some nice small and easy stuff on there, I swear! And it's pretty darn long list plus there are Pinterest boards as well.

lydiaharper sent 4 lions glasses (there is 3 in the pic because 1 didn't make it). I unwrapped one to get a pic of the graphic, but as you see, we are horrible at taking pics (it doesn't help that the camera is really old). Hopefully Lydia has a better image.



Thanks lydiaharper!

I will check to see if I have some pics, craftaddiction.  I am so sorry one didn't make it.  I will see what I can do to remedy that so you will have a full set. ;-)

Here are the AWESOME TOL pendants that I received from Kerrierou. They are gorgeous!  Thanks so much.

Okay! Goodies! First off, this beautiful prayer shawl/scarf from TwistedTruth. LOVE the color and the scallop around the edges...so wonderful!


'Next from 1watermonkey,  the cutest Fisher Price little people ornaments. So stinking cute. But wait! I got an extra surprise! This shirt was on my pinterest and 1watermonkey stenciled it for me. LOVE IT! It goes so well with my new boots.




Here is the hot chocolate on a stick I sent to TroubleT. I tried to find spice marshmallows but they were all out. BOO!

I LOVE those Fisher Price ornaments! AWESOME!

We're going to have a fire tonight and I'm going to surprise my kidlets with your hot cocoa. I know they will love it kittykill! Smiley

I've also received from Casey1201. She sent me a denim stocking, 5 skeins of yarn and some chai tea. I love the color way on the 2 skeins of snowflake. I think that those will turn into a cowl for my daughter.

I received an awesome package from my angel, Onyxnox. Cheesy


12 cards total, 6 red gift card holders, 6 blue gift card holders, (a bunch of) gift tags, awesome beaded ornaments (the rest are white as well!)


The back or inside of everything, a better look at the beaded ornaments.


AWESOME Magic the Gathering themed shot glasses.

Everything is amazing! I feel like the photos didn't do anything justice, but I sneaked them on my phone so my hubby wouldn't see. Cheesy
Thank you so much for being a fabulous angel, Onyxnox! Cheesy

I was contemplating adding colour to them to match the mana - but really, that could be done with the shots right Cheesy

Let's see - black sambuca for the black... blue curacao for the blue... white chocolate liquer, or something like irish cream for the white, sour raspberry for the red mana, and green melon for the green maybe???  Sixth glass for the loser - mix them all up and make something nasty???  Or a layered colour shot???
