1  Christmas Stocking Swap Round 12 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Summer6061 on: December 16, 2016 03:55:05 PM
I just got caught up on the gallery, there are so many great stockings and stuffers!!

My son has been having some medical issues that in the past three weeks have resulted in a hospital stay and two ER visits (the most recent being this past weekend), so things have been pretty hectic around here and I haven't had a chance to post pics of my amazing stocking package yet. Thankfully, my partner and our organizer have both been very understanding! And now, for the Doctor Who stocking extravaganza you've been waiting for!

First off, the amazing stocking, complete with a TARDIS interior! The tenth Doctor is my favorite and I love this stocking!!

There were so many items inside the stocking, including these two shirts (I especially love the Bad Wolf graffitied on the Tardis!), these gloves that I'm in love with, and this glasses case that is perfect for me (my son wears glasses and I like to keep a case for them in my purse).

Not only were there two shirts for me, but there were two for my son! They're cute and they fit him perfectly!

BlushingBlueGrass also made me a mug with a quote from my favorite Doctor, as well as some earrings that I immediately recognized as sonic screwdrivers! She also sent some handmade soap that I can't wait to try out (the only reason I haven't used it yet is because I made myself wait to take pics first)!

On top of all that, she also sent some crafty extras (beads and DW fabric - woohoo!) as well as some tasty looking ones (I don't know who will be more entertained by 'The Super Dooper Reindeer Pooper, my son or my husband, lol).
Thank you so much for everything BlushingBlueGrass, I love it all! You were a great swap partner and I'm really glad we were paired together!

My favorite handmade gift is a gift that I helped with.
My sister was pregnant with her third baby and super excited that it was a girl. The crib she had was a hand-me-down that someone had given her and had already been used by her two boys.  The crib had seen better days and was nothing like what she wanted, but she planned to make do. My husband decided to make and surprise her with a crib similar (but way better in my opinion) to the one she wanted.
My husband did most of the work, from creating the design in his head, to cutting out the pieces, to painting and putting it together. I created the ruffle for the top and helped with some sanding.
When my sister finished opening gifts at her shower, I put a blindfold on her and my husband wheeled in the crib. She didn't know what to expect and when she took the blindfold off, it was like she couldn't believe her eyes. She was in shock and it took her a few moments to compose herself. I think it may have been the most 'I can't believe this, I've never been happier with a gift' reaction that I've ever seen Smiley.
Here's a pic of the crib (this was the only picture that I could find).

I also received some fun flamingo art from EdelC!  I love how she blended the colors to make it look like they're flying over rolling hills!

Happy Halloween!!

Didn't manage to get the new costumes done for Halloween, so the girls were wearing their Superhero costumes from the Edinburgh Comic Con (April 2016).

(they were out "guising" (that's the Scottish Trick or Treating where they have to tell a joke, sing a song or do a dance before they get their treat)

What cuties!! I like the idea of guising vs just saying 'trick or treat!'

Here's a pic of my 3 year old lumberjack, complete with a homemade beard Smiley.

I received today!! I really like this piece of art from Nikki (I'm not sure of her Craftster username). I'm a big fan of book page art. I like the bright colors she used and I love the text background! Thank you so much Nikki!

Bec, did the wax seal survive the journey to Australia? This is how it looked before I put it in the envelope, I was afraid there might've been too much wax.

I was planning on doing 6 ornaments (3 & 3), but as I was putting the finishing touches on my samples, I realized that shipping would probably add up pretty quickly.  My ornaments are glass and will have to be packaged in a box.  I'm not sure how much a small box will ship for, but I'm thinking it would probably be about $5.  Sooo, I think I will change my offerings to just three.  Now the question is, three of which?  The Nativity, or Let it Snow?  Which would you guys prefer?

EDITED: I am offering one or the other, so if you would like one of these, just specify which design you'd like Smiley.
