When I got a big box I had an idea of what might be in it, so it killed me not to open it for two weeks.


I got a present for my nephews...breakfast!


And then for me, a duvet cover! I asked for a thrift store folded queen sheet one because I thought it wouldn't be too expensive and would fit into the 'medium' category. Instead I got a hand tie-dyed sheet that's a fantastic rainbow of colours!


The backside of it is a bluey-grey that's the colour of two of my four bedroom walls, so if I ever want a sedate calm sleeping experience I can just flip it over.

HollyDolly/rjannelle YOU ARE THE BEST.

I'm not attached to your world, nothing heals, nothing grows... we used to love ourselves, we used to love one another.

So glad you liked it gala_apples Smiley I hope the cover will fit your duvet!!

There also should have been one other wrapped gift in there... I'm pretty sure I wrapped it in the tissue paper. Did you find it?

I was totally spoiled by my Secret Santa "Roasty Chestnuts"  aka Phoenixfiredesigns!  It was so hard not open  my presents as I was pretty sure from the address who my secret Santa was.  I am always blown away by the pieces of jewelry that PFD makes and now I have 2, yes 2 pieces of my own that I will treasure forever!

First up is one on her famous tree of life trees, mine has a moon and bead owl which is just my style.  She also nailed that I was in need of a cooper necklace and love silver.  This piece blows me away as it has it all!  Just look at the detail of her wire work.



The 2nd piece was a steampunk experiment and I am happy to say it passed the test with an A+!



PFD also sent this cute little owl stuffie!!!  I am in heaven!





I want to thank my awesome secret santa, you rock!!!!!  Please post better pictures if you have them!

Yay! I'm so glad you liked your gifts. Grin I thought maybe if I used Love's last name it might throw you off but let's be honest, there's not a lot of people mailing from Florida! Heh

I didn't get photos of the specific piece I sent made for you, but I have a pic of another owl tree in the same style:

I received from madmommymia and she sent me things based on a few of my favorite things! 

First I got a jar mix to make Butterbeer Cookies (from Hogsmeade)!  I can't wait to try it


Then from Jack Skellington I received this amazing hoopla.


The Doctor gave me a guide to all the monsters to watch out for..


and finally from Hogwarts I got this amazing painting!  I love everything about it!


Thank you so much for crafting for me!  Happy Holidays!

I crafted for artista83.  She is having some broken computer issues, so I told her I would let everyone know she got her box, and enjoyed all her goodies, especially the fingerless gloves I knitted for her.  Here is a quick picture of all the crafted items I sent.  



My lighting was terrible as it was raining the day I packaged and sent.  But you can see that I made her some olive green fingerless gloves-- I think that was her biggest "want" from her list, and luckily, they're my favorite thing to craft.  They are quite long and super comfy with some nice lacework down the top.  I also knitted her a Japanese Fighting Beetle, as she loves bugs and beetles, and made her a zombie Santa ornament as a funny extra as she and her husband love zombie movies and shows, and, let's be honest, a zombie Santa is hilarious.  Glad you liked everything artista83!  I hope you have some better photos and action shots.  This one is quite terrible!   Undecided

If I had a needle and thread, fine as I could sew, I'd sew my true love to my side, and down the creek
