Here is the wonderful package I received from Megz1027!

She crafted a BEAUTIFUL hat, matching bracelet, and cute ornaments. She also sent some great extras including candy, stickers, a gift bag, and pretty fabric.
Here is a better look at the hat. I love the colors..

Thank you so much Megz1027! I loved your package!

That hat is super cute! 

I received from mom2em over the weekend!  She sent me all kinds of super cute tags, some earrings that look like ornaments, a scrabble tile pendant, cocoa, stamps, beads, stickers, and lots of other little goodies! 


I turned one of the snowman tags into an ornament for the tree and I can't wait to start stamping up some cards for friends.  Thank you so much for everything :)

RaraAvis, Esmeralda Owl has been peering over my laptop screen checking out what you received. She told me she thinks she needs another hat, this time one to match yours. Luckily for her I have that pattern, so I may tackle that project for her after the holidays.  Thought I'd warn you though that she's been eyeballing the poofy ornaments, too, but I don't think she's feeling especially benign towards them. Something tells me she might be getting hungry! And she does know the way to your house. [Note to everyone else who may just possibly think I'm slightly insane: Esmeralda is the wickedly delightful owl that RaraAvis felted for me in the Halloween Stuff a Small.]

Like the tags too, but think the penguin one is my favorite. Cute, cute, cute!

I received from RaraAvis, but like a dum-dum I gave the wrong address. Luckily that address happens to be my house (I am currently at my apartment at school). My mom received the package and keeps asking me if she can open it to find out what's inside :P. I will be home on the 14th so I can open the package then!

I received an awesome box from Crazyda79 today!
I will post photos after my Frodo is distracted... He was really excited that it came today...

Now that I have finally wrestled the goodies away from the cats...

The box was stuffed to near bursting with tags, stickers, fabric, ribbon, buttons, bubbles and even holiday adhesive bandages! But here is the best part...

Crazyda79 made a nice wood-burned snowman for the wall (and since winter takes up a lot of the year in Wisconsin, it will get a lot of hang time), some uber-cute snowman magnets and a pot holder with a pocket (which is also excellent since I am a klutz in the kitchen!)

I received from Lindy today!


Crafts (necklaces, color your own puzzle) and Ornaments for the kids to decorate--the reindeer ones have a space to put their names which I love, jungle bells, a pair of socks for each girl, lip balm, ribbon, glitter glue.  She made cute tags and beautiful jewelry.  I especially love the shell bracelet and the blue necklace with matching earrings.  And we all loved the Hershey kisses (my dh ate a few before I got the picture taken lol).

Thank you!

YAY!!  I am so happy you like it Nolansmomster!  I had fun packing it all!!  

We received yesterday and love everything!!

I love all the snowy goodies especially because we do not get any snow around here :(  Very nice package, my daughter is trying to fight me over the pen :)  Thanks so much!

Very nice package, my daughter is trying to fight me over the pen :)  Thanks so much!
I am glad you liked it! I have extra pens--I actually bought them for teacher/therapist gifts this year!!! PM me if you want to surprise her with one!

My son also helped with the snowflake (not the needle felting-- that would have ended badly...) which I thought you might need in your poor snowless climate  ;)

May have to try that puzzle pieces snowflake with my third graders. Very cute! Am envying the skill you have in making felted creations; love the penguin!

Thanks! This was our first puzzle piece snowflake-- we usually do wreaths (which also work well!)

I am so glad you liked it.  Now that I look at it all spread out I feel like I didn't put enough in there for you!  I got kind of crazy with kiddo stuff which took up a lot of space...

Here is a close up of the tags that I made out of last years cards and the jewelry.

I received my package from AuntieKar at the perfect time. It arrived yesterday evening and I wore part of it today to fit into my school's 'dress for Christmas' theme day. First a group shot of the candy: The divinity lasted approximately 30 seconds after this photo was taken and the chocolate letter 'K' didn't last much longer. Yum!
Next the papercrafting supplies:

Perfect amounts of ribbon and paper for my crafts as well as two sets of clear cling stamps. I knew I bought those acrylic stamp blocks for a reason! It's going to be so much fun to use these!
Then a shot of the practical stuff (Well, kinda of!!!):

I wore the Santa socks today and my students and fellow faculty thought they were hilarious. Will be using the Santa sticky notes a lot, too. The peppermint bath scrub smells good enough to eat and Santa's stocking cap hair clips are probably going to be adorning my great-niece's hair very soon.
Next the decorative items:

The gingerbread ornament will go on my tree and the jelly clings of Santa are already on my classroom window.
And the best for last:

A charm bracelet AuntieKar made to fit my broad hand. Haven't decided which charm I like best, but the reindeer and the HOHOHO are running neck and neck. Since another Okie, Gene Autry, made the song Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer famous, I have some loyalty to the critters (also saw 6-8 of Rudolph's cousins on my way to work this morning and another pair on my way home, so it's definitely getting to be the season!) Happy holidays, everyone! Thanks, AuntieKar!

Post by: AuntieKar on December 12, 2012 08:06:18 PM
Lol...I'm so glad you liked it....I had a lttle of the scrub left when I made it, and I will say it makes your skin super duper soft, and delicious smelling....and it's all natural, so it actually could be safe to eat, although I probably wouldn't try that!  I am so so so so so glad you like everything and will get use of it all!

Megz1027 received my package and asked if I could post pics!
Here is the whole thing...

And here is a close up of the crafted items (a mug rug w/the design of a  snowman holding a coffee mug on the front, a corset style warm drink holder, and a needle felted snowman ornament)

 ;D

Cute package. Like the snowman but can't let Esmeralda know or she might get jealous. I especially like the corset-style hot drink holder. I hate inserting grommets, so really, really admire that aspect of the project.


Title: Re: Stuff a Small Flat Rate Box for Winter Holidays Gallery
Post by: Megz1027 on December 16, 2012 04:26:16 PM
I am in love with my package!
Thank you so much RaraAvis!!
I plan to use the corset for my coffee cup when teaching  ;D

I think that cookie cutter was supposed to be in my box.....I'm totally jealous!  I want cookies that will sit on my mug!  I am loving all the packages so far....and again I say, when is the next round?

I received from Pink-Josy last week or so! I absolutely love everything! I'm actually wearing the gray cowl today. In the photos: the cowl, a little Christmas tree, many lovely gift tags, a Scrabble tile necklace with cute design on it, and another charm for a necklace that says "Be-you-tiful." Not pictured, three different colors of cold-water dye! Yay! Thanks again!

Josy asked me to post photos of what I sent her... it appears I only took photos of two things I sent. Oops! In her package I included two snowmen ornaments or decorations, a handmade candle I received in a STS, some chocolate and chocolate caramel candies, and ... my memory is failing me, something else Haha!

Here are the photos that I have:



and one of just the snowman:
