My partner seems to have disappeared!   Undecided  I sent on time, and it went regular letter mail so I'm sure she's received. 

She specifically said not to send craft supplies, so my envelope was a little empty compared to most of yours, but I made her a cross stitch (she said she liked Rudolph) and sent a pad of post its, some earrings I thought she'd like (and can double as stitch markers if she doesn't) and an iron on reindeer, which I know is craft supplies, but as it was simple and pretty (how she described her style) and a reindeer I thought it was too perfect not to send.

Hopefully she liked it!

Argh, after all of this time, my camera seems to be broken!  Christmas is coming, and I've been a (reasonably) good girl, so hopefully Santa will have a new one in his bag for me, but in the mean time, here are some photos my amazing, wonderful, generous, talented and good-looking angel ChrisSews took!

A chocolate otter!!  I feel like I "otter" save this (bahaha) since it's sooo cute...  But the chocolate is calling me.  Also, the ingredients say it has coffee in, so in all honesty the poor critter doesn't stand a chance.  Polar bear socks, salmon jerky (which I've put away for Christmas in hopes that watching my dad, BIL, and the cats fight over it will add some entertainment!) an Oregon magnet and a magnetic Alaska moose book mark!

The scrapbook, in all its Alaskan glory

She also sent me a new little buddy, a bright pink flamingo!  I thought the little fella needed a manly name, so we called him Thor.  hahaha!

Thank you so much Chris, it was so kind of you to do this all for me!!!  I seriously love it.

Hi everyone!  I'm Rachel and I'm turning the big 3-0 tomorrow (2 December)  Undecided  I live in Alberta Canada with Crash and Jack, my two cats.  My style is pretty bold (some may say tacky).  I love bright colours, shiny things, animal prints.  Crocheting and cross stitch/embroidery are my favourite crafts to do.


Christmas ornaments/decorations - I especially love nutcrackers and bells, and wouldn't like anything overly religous.  The more unusual, the better!

Cat toys - My babies are waaaaay spoiled, so anything that would make them happy will make me happy!


Earrings:  I wear em all the time, but I can't wear posts, only the hook kinds.  I love flashy, dangly ones the best

Bracelets:  I looove bangles, especially the big chunky ones.  I'd also really love a loaded charm bracelet, or even just some little bits I could use if I ever made one of my own


Netbook cover:  I have a Dell mini, and would love a cool sleeve for it, especially one that zips shut and has a handle.

Apron:  I collect them, especially ones a 50's housewife would wear. I love half aprons, but don't have any full ones, so either would be loved

Makeup brush roll

Crochet hook roll


**Major wish**  Handspun or hand-dyed wool...  It's so pretty, and every skein is unique.

Scrapbook supplies:  My sister just got married in Vegas and I'm making her a book, so anything weddingy/vegasy would be awesome, but really, anything pretty would be appreciated.

Cooking stuff:  I love to cook and bake, especially cupcakes!  Some cute cupcake papers, or decorations, or any sort of supplies...  Even a book or your favourite recipes!


I'd love a surprise!  I have a pretty extensive wist, anything from it or inspired by it would make me so very happy...   www.wists.com/evil_rachel_25

Candy!!  Especially chocolate, or fruity candy.  You just can't go wrong with candy, right?

Coffee/tea/hot drinky stuff:  I'm a caffeine addict, and in the winter I need something hot to get started in the morning.  Even something drink-related, like a cup or a travel mug cozy or reusable to-go cup sleeve!

Happy birthday, my fellow Decemberites!

This was fun last year.  My birthday's in 3 days...on the 2nd!  I like it because it's in the same month as Christmas (double the celebrating, right?), but I'm not too thrilled with it being right before final exams. 

Happy almost birthday!  I have noticed that as a general rule people with 2 December birthdays tend to be super-awesome.

On a completely random and unrealated note, have I mentioned that my birthday is 2 December?  Grin Grin

I am VERY happy about my partner, I think (hope!) I have the perfect thing to send her and got started on it last night.

Well I don't think tehbunnykens is ever going to post photos of what I sent her, although I am holding out hope that she'll send my Frank N  Furter back...  I have an awesome angel, but in the mean time here's a few photos of what I sent!

A postcard home sent partway through the swap...  It's actually a packet of wild rose seeds, which is our provincial flower

Most of the souvenirs, including Tim Horton's coffee and a puzzle that I glued a little red rhinestone on where Red Deer is!


My favourite pages!

Canada Post said my package arrived on 4 Sept, but no word from my partner about that or if she send my LV home...  Starting to worry...
