wow lots of amazing new packages!  I have to say that the one that made me gasp with surprise and delight was RougeRaven's sequins tree.  Awesome.

Now it's my turn to share the amazing items I received from Noooitaremybirthday .

I went to the mailbox and there was this small box awaiting me which I knew was my Ho package and it sure had me curious to see what items would fit into such a box.  I opened it and out popped this needle felted penguin all dressed up in his wool sweater - wow, I thought, what a fantastic large ho (at this point I would have been happy if the rest of the box was empty since he's so fabulous but I knew 2 more ho's awaited)

                         

Back into the box I went and discovered a small ho - this adorable magnet with a penguin in a hot pink sweater

                         

Now what else could be awaiting me in this box - I looked in and saw some fabric folded at the bottom and opened it only to discover a beautiful penguin mixed media wall quilt (in her note Nooo said this was the large ho, not the penguin like I first thought.)  It's amazing, all the little details and different bits of material she used.  Truly a work of art that's going to look great on my walls

                         

But, wait, the box wasn't empty yet!  She also included some extras - vintage holiday glass beads, penguin stickers, a robot necklace, some peppermint kisses (which never made the picture) and some rocks which she said are mica that I should grind up as they make rad glitter

                         

I am just thrilled with this package!!  I had totally forgotten what my themes were and when I went back to check I realized I had put down Penguins dressed in bright colors and Nooo totally hit the mark with these items!!!

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Aw, yoopidou, what a fantastic tree skirt, and I love the little stuffed Santa. And nooo, those penguins are adorable! I agree with Homerof2, I would have thought the needlefelted was a large, too!

I couldn't wait any longer to show you the amazing Santa package that cinnamon teal sent me. I'm so excited about this that I felt I had to share immediately. Here are the packages, all beautifully wrapped and sitting alone under my tree:


First, a small HO: a beautiful handcarved stamp of one of Santa's reindeer. I know I'll be using this often. It would make great holiday tags and cards!


Then, another small HO, this adorable knit stocking ornament. There are even two tiny presents wrapped up and tucked inside. This is already on my tree.


And finally, what may be the biggest HO in the entire world. I love this so much I can't stand it. Even Mr. 'Coo was impressed, which is no small feat. It's a ceramic Santa! I have a collection of Santa figures, and this is definitely my new favorite. I mean, just look at him!!


Now look at him again!


And from the back!


I love him. Thank you so, so much, cinnamon teal! This is way more than I could have hoped for. You're the best!  Kiss

No wonder you were so excited!!!  He is perfect for your collection!
How did he fit in your house...I mean, he is 50 feet tall, right? Cheesy

The reindeer stamp and little stocking rounds out your theme so well!

WOW--the gallery is so happy and festive...

I love all the penguins, they have such a great expression.

The stamp, the tiny knitted sock and the jolly Santa, what a great package!

Limeriot just blew my socks off!

She went with my blue-silver winter theme and I love it all.

First, an incredibly neatly embroidered snowflake on a small hoop to put in my tree. It matches the garland and ornaments I already put up so well it's uncanny.


Then a positive elegant journal that I will fill with drawing of the nice stuff going around me, starting by her wonderful presents. I think this one is an extra but it just could have been a small Ho as well.


My second small Ho is a set of glittery gift tags and cards in  agreeable color combinations. I will use them for my husband since he will love the colors.




And now, the most extraordinary big Ho, so neatly executed, with colors matching so beautifully, with great shapes and with many little pockets full of surprises: 25 surprises to go. She put so much thinking, time, craftsmanship and energy in it, I feel honored to receive it. Did I say that I will get 25 more presents until Christmas? This has to be the best gift ever. Grin

My first 4 surprises:


Thank you so much Limeriot.
