I still have to open them but my little guys have been sick and today was at er with one for RSV.  

How old are your little guys? I hope they feel better soon and that it's just a mild case of RSV! I also hope they stay healthy for the rest of the cold and flu season!! It can be so tough on both the little ones and the mama taking care of them. I hope you all get some decent rest!

I have all smalls done and ready to be wrapped, all mediums mostly done, and I still need to get started on my larges. I had planned on getting some work done while my son was in school, (he's 4 and can be a bit of a handful) but he ended up sick and only attended 4 days in October and so far has only gone once this month. Thankfully, it was nothing serious, just a couple of colds that took a while to recover from. As a result though, my crafting time has been sporadic and somewhat difficult to come by. But don't worry partner, I will get it all done and sent in time!

I am about 75% finished with the projects! Though, I may have to send two packages because I'm not sure I can economically fit them all into one! Wink A large flat rate just won't do I think  Shocked
I was considering sending in more than one package too! I'll have to see what size box I need once everything is done, then go from there!

My dining room table is just piles as far as the eye can see, there's maybe six square inches not covered by something? But that's how crafting goes, at least at this house.
Sounds like my house!

I really hope she doesn't mind a lot of holiday/seasonal items because once I started on one or two, the ideas just keep coming for more and more!
Ooh, I love seasonal/holiday items! I'm excited to see everything you've come up with!

I worked on a small yesterday. Part of the process involved printing a two sided design that lined up on both sides - not the easiest thing! I finally got it right and wouldn't you know, the ink cartridge was running low! I'm now waiting for the replacement ink to arrive so I can resume that small Smiley. I have one medium mostly done, a second that I need to order supplies for, and a third and fourth that while I have a general idea of what they'll be, I'm still not sure on the actual details... I feel like I have a decent amount done, but when I see it written out like that, I realize just how much more work I still have left!

I received from BigBangMomma last week! I was hoping to get the Christmas tree up before taking pics, but since I've yet to get it up, I figured I'd just post pics without it.

The box it was all shipped in was beaten up, but it didn't look like any of the gifts inside were affected! Three of these gifts are for my four year old and I'm sure he'll enjoy everything she sent him! I'm curious to see what number 7 is, it's round and hard, so we'll see if that's just the packaging or the gift itself! I'm looking forward to Friday!



On the first day of Christmas, BigBangMomma gave to me a gourmet dark chocolate bar containing pink Himalayan salt! I was about to take the pretty wrapper off and dig in when I realized I'd better take pics of it first Smiley. I have since enjoyed a few squares of it, yum!



Day 2 - BigBangMomma changed up the opening order of gifts so that my son and I can alternate between opening gifts. Today's gift was for my son and I'm assuming it's a medium or large. She made him a cute Santa Claus complete with a sled and reindeer! Her daughter helped her paint it all!
I'm very impressed with the little Santa that she crocheted (at least I think it's crocheted) and the whole set is the perfect size for my son! The deer are miniatures of the large wooden yard ornaments. My son is very happy with his gift and immediately tried to stick it in his mouth (a sure sign of approval Wink ).



Day 3 - BigBangMomma made me a winter themed pocket letter! I love the bright blue background! The snowman and presents are felt and the snowflakes are glittery foam. On the backside she included some extras of each, as well as some washi tape, ribbon, buttons, and paper goods. She also included a very nice and thoughtful little letter in the middle! This is only my second pocket letter and I'm pleased to have it as a part of my budding collection!



BigBangMomma, I love how we used the same theme in our pocket letters!! I smiled upon opening the one that you made me, knowing that you'd be opening your own on the following day Smiley.

Day 4 - I shared with BigBangMomma that my son loves to be read to and his current favorite book is 'Little Blue Truck.' She used that info to create this festive appliqu panel for him! It brought a big smile to his face when he opened it!
I love how BigBangMomma used the 'vintage truck with a Christmas tree in the bed' trend and incorporated the little blue truck into it! I'm going to hang this on my son's bedroom door to welcome all who enter his room 😊.



Day 5 - BigBangMomma made me a Christmasy tote bag! I really like the Christmas tree fabric pockets on the outside and the contrast of the soft colors on the interior fabric! I think I'll take it with me when I go Christmas shopping!



Day 6 - BigBangMomma made this cute and festive towel holder and sent along a fun Santa towel to accompany it! I love adding small festive touches like this around the house!



Day 7 - BigBangMomma sent my 4 year old this cute little thermos. It has a pop up straw and is the ideal size for him! He got a lot of enjoyment out of pushing the button that caused the straw to pop up. He'd close the lid and push the button all over again. This is perfect for him to take to school!



BigBangMomma - Thank you for sending along such thoughtful gifts for Av, he loves them all!  I'm glad your kids are excited about their gifts, I hope they enjoy them Smiley.

I love that we both sent each other two similar items! Great minds... Wink

Day 8 - BigBangMomma quilted me this wreath wall hanging!  I'm going to put it in our entryway to greet people with Christmas cheer as soon as they enter the house! I know this has to be the second large as I can only imagine all the time and work BigBangMomma put into this, thank you, Laura!



BigBangMomma - I am so, so happy that Savannah likes her shirt!! I would've hated for her to be disappointed after waiting until day 8 to open.
I hope Jarron likes his gift tomorrow. Thank you for providing such helpful information regarding both of their likes!

Day 9 - BigBangMomma sent me this cute Christmas tree directional sign! She not only included the distances from my location, but she also included accurate direction arrows as well! This Christmas tree is now on display facing the correct direction so that all the arrows are accurate (at least according to my husband who seems to have a built in compass Smiley ).



Laura - I'm so pleased that Jarron likes his sweatshirt! I had fun figuring out what to make them both. I'm glad it all turned out to their liking! That's funny about the socks, I'm glad it worked out!

Day 10 - BigBangMomma sent me this cute little snowman box! The blue paint that she used provides the perfect background! I'm not sure what I'll put in it yet, but I think I'll save it for something special!

I got nothing done during my week away - I cut my hand and needed stitches Sad
Ouch! I hope your hand heals quickly!

I'm slowly progressing on a small that I've been working on for the past two weeks. I've been able to do a little bit here, a small bit there, hence the amount of time. I'm hoping to get some time to finally just knock the rest of it out and call it complete!

I wanted to work on a large project today, but I had to adult and clean my house instead.

Bleh, I know the feeling, lol. I was just now thinking that I need to hire a house cleaner anytime I do a swap!
