hi everyone, i am totally confused, i thought we made most of the things to go inside the stocking, are we to buy little things mostly? just wondered as i have spent hours making celtic stuff and havent heard from my swap  partner who has not been on line for 8 days, so i am not sure whether to post. i have pm orange about it just now. so i hope i get answers soon. i guess i take the risk of not recieving as my partner is not answering pms and not online.
i am worried ... Undecided cyndiq

cyndig, for the package i sent, i stuffed it with a mix of hand made and store bought. in the one i received, there was mostly store bought, but there were crafty items in it, so i can do the crafting on horrible winter nights.

I'm sure your stocking will be well received, it sounds like you're an over achiever! : )

but i think you are taking the right route, by holding out for a day or two until you hear word about posting. Be sure to snap pics before you ship so we can all see what you've been working on!

Not to spoil the surprise for LittleJo, who should be recieving today or tomorrow, I sent a mix of supplies and, some handmade items.  I don't really mind what i recieve - I'd just like a stocking to open up on Christmas day Cheesy

Out of curiosity, am I odd to have wrapped everything in the stocking?  Is that a UK only tradition, or not?

i think some families here in the states do that too. i guess i do it a little bit. for my sister's stocking this year i have some wrapped things and some unwrapped. I like the wrapping method, personnaly. lots of little packages are really fun.

i dont think i am an overachiever, i just send as nice a thing as i would like to recieve. I just like to please my swap partner.
Everyone, please dont get me wrong my partner was lovely when she was in contact, and i want to give her what she asked for, guess its the mum in me (with 3 kids always asking for stuff!). I am just worried something has happened as i havent heard anything, and she moved house recently. I did take some photos before i wrapped all the things, yes i wrap stuff too. oh well i hope i hear soon from orange if she has heard anything from my partner.  cyndi

I was going to wrap all my little things inside, but then I got too anxious to get it out the door, so I didn't

I recieved today!!!!!!!!! I've just been running round the house like mad going ' oh my god oh my god oh my god!' The postman left my parcel at the end of the drive tucked away. I lurrrrrrrrrrrrrrrve my stocking! Its the best thing ever! I'm so excited and i haven't even opened the things inside it! Its so beautiful!
Don't worry though i wrapped all the gifts in yours individually too! Its way more fun that way!
I cant wait til christmas, normally i would open it but i'll wait.
I would take a picture but i don't know where the camera is, and i might be getting a new one for christmas so i will wait!!!! YEY
