1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Christmas Stocking round 13 Swap Gallery on: December 15, 2017 01:26:26 AM

My amazing box from seeuudee arrived last weekend, but as she said that a card was missing I kept it unopened until Tuesday (the card arrived Monday). And then aaaall the goodies!! Wow!!

First of all my wonderful fandom stocking (she's used suit trousers for it, what a fab idea!! And it kinda screams DOCTOR to us!!)

There are stocking fillers in it which I won't open until Christmas day.

Then she's spoiled my girls. They got their "alter ego" canvasses and a box of goodies (they adore the mini Christmas tree and all the decorations. And the pens and booklets.. ). Thank you soo much,seeuudee!! Big hugs from the girls to you down south!!

Further on to my items... Nice HP paper tree decorations.. one tree for each house, as we're a full Hogwarts family. ;-)

Two sock snowmen!! So cute!!

Chocolates!! Prosecco and from my favourite chocolate shop (Hotel Chocolat) some Mulled Wine chocs!! (Let's hope I survive them better than the small glass of mulled wine I had yesterday!! 😂😂).

A journal and pens!!

And then... If you wondered what happened to the rest of those suit trousers seeuudee upcycled... A trouser bag!! It's her prototype. I'm not a "bag in the city" person (prefer backpacks), but can see me use it for crop days and other occasions. Tomorrow will be the first outing for the bag and I definitely will give her feedback from my friends.

The bag is straight at the bottom... I just didn't move the tissue paper out of the way!!

Oh, and jingling wand pens!! Must not forget those!!

Absolutely love everything, and can't believe there's more to open on 25th!! 😍😘😘😍

YIKES!! I totally missed out on posting my stuff in the fall thread! Need better tracker for this!

Personally I partly blame storerboughtcreations and roler... they usually ping me on Facebook to remind me to post my crafts! Wink You're slacking, ladies!!  Grin Grin

He's actually paper-pieced. I made 3 (kept one for myself for once) and those suckers took FOREVER to cut and glue. Okay 11 hours, not forever. But it was in a single day and I don't want to touch scissors again for at least a month!

Not a single thing on the demiguise is drawn or painted, each teeny detail is cut paper!

We've had a twin with Scarlet Fever last week (plus 2 family members visiting for a week until Thursday this week). Just everything coming together right now. 😦😵

Sent PM to Dinkime, Craftylittlemonkey and Mistress Jennie that I will be 1-2 days late sending.

... Why is it that kids always get ill when important adulting things are happening (just started new job 3 weeks ago... Body still is trying to get used to new routine after being full-time mum "only" for 6.5 years... 😲😲

Sorry for being absent for a lot the last couple of terms ... RL has been really kicking in ... but I hope I'll get more active with posting etc come December.

Talking of which (-ish) ... Please tell me that the Battles go to 11/30, not 11/20 and that that's just a typo in the Battles' thread?!?!?

Back to doing housework... my mum and big sis come on Wednesday and the house is a ... a... ummm... mess... Wink

RL has been taking over here a lot with sick kids and still trying to get into a routine with me being back into working environment (at new work place as well) after 6.5 years break. AND I have family coming on Wednesday for a week... house is a mess and all that...

Audania1 & Seeuudee... I've sent you a PM...  Sad

As for Christmas decorations ... I hope to get some small things up around the house come Friday if hubby gets the boxes down from the loft ok tomorrow. I have to deal with Advent calendars this weekend for the girls.

Oh, and I still have to order our tree!! Shocked Geesh... SO not organised for Christmas this year.

I received seeuudee's angel package on Friday, and I absolutely love, Love, LOVE it!!

First I got a cloth bag with fabulous stencilling..  

And my first ever hoop with the Marauders.

And a nice necklace with 2 pendants.

Thank you soooo much, seeuudee!!! 😍😍

(and for some reason my phone refuses to upload photos... Will do in an hour or so after bedtime).
