11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: 2010 Advent Calendar Swap. on: November 13, 2010 03:00:58 AM
Firstly here is a quick picture of all of my pressies looking tempting and ready to be opened! I love how Angelicus wrapped this, it's all so pretty!  Smiley



And I have stashed them all away in this big basket for safekeeping...



Now, my lovely advent calendar. Each day has it's own individual pocket with a chocolate coin inside. This must have taken you ages to sew each pocket- you must have a lot of patience!  Smiley



And a little closeup to show the detail...





1st December


Yay! Day 1, I can't believe it's December already- where did that time go? But at least we all get to open our pressies now!

So today I actually opened 2 presents because I noticed that there was 1 extra little parcel in there and I couldn't resist! So in the first present was this lovely little needlebook in the shape of a cupcake. I love this so, so much- I was in dire need of a needlebook, before they were all just sticking out of a pincushion and they kept getting lost inside the stuffing, but now I have somewhere to keep them all organised!



And the second present I opened was this cute little torch keyring and a smiley face keyring! I actually loved the smiley face one so much that I made it into a little pendant this morning and wore it today as a necklace!  Tongue



Thanks Angelicus for a great first day, I can't wait for tomorrow!  Grin


2nd December


Wow, today was another great present- I received this gorgeous handbound notebook with the made with the loveliest patterned paper. It's just lovely!







Thank you so much again!  Smiley

Day 3- Yummy chocolate tree decorations. (Already eaten- but I got a picture before they were devoured).
Day 4- A really cute crocheted stuffie. Love this- I have the perfect place for him to sit!
Day 5- A glittery angel candle- it's like you read my mind, because I have been obssessed with burning candles in the last few weeks and this one is so festive and pretty!
Day 6- Some crocheted flowers and a crocheted hair bow- so cute and so me!  Smiley
Day 7- A mug filled with hot chocolate and a chocolate bar. Oops, ate the chocolate before I could get a picture, but I will make sure to get a picture of the lovely mug- the saying on it is perfect for me!  Wink
Day 8- Gorgeous gift tags, including some handmade ones. Obviously will be so useful in the next few weeks!
Day 9- I cheated and opened two presents today as I was having a rubbish day and was lacking the willpower to resist my big basket of sparkly pressies. Inside I found some gorgeous crocheted handwarmers!  Smiley

Pictures to come, sorry I'm so behind- I've lent my camera to someone, but they will be back tomorrow so expect pictures then!  Grin

I've got behind on my entries, because it's been such a busy week, so I'll be playing catch up tomorrow!  Smiley

The extension has been so helpful, it really has made my package so much better overall. I still haven't got the one large item done, but everything else is done and now just has to be wrapped. And I hope I can fit it all in the box I bought as well, it's so much stuff!  Smiley

This swap is so much fun and I'm loving journalling, but I'm so worried my life will be really boring for someone else to read...

I've been loving working in the journal and once I start writing I find it so hard to stop! Normally I keep journals for a few days and then lose interest, so the knowledge that this has to be sent to someone else in a month is a great motivator and I finally feel really inspired to journal!  Smiley

Yay partners! Thank you DizzerSpinninRound for the awesome pairing job.

I have already finished today's entry and decorated the journal and am very happy with it so far and I've messaged my partner to say a quick hello!  Smiley

I had a lot of fun yesterday collecting ___ from the graveyard to make ___. It was closed so me and my mum had to reach through the railings - anyone watching must have thought we were completely mad!

Just a last minute teaser for my partner Wink

Ooh, that's intriguing... a graveyard?!  Smiley

An extra week would be amazing for me as well- I have a few things left to go including the one large item, plus it's a busy week for me. I think I could get it done on time, but an extra week would just take the pressure off a little!  Smiley
