I can't imagine how much work it is to organize! I don't think I would even try lol!!

I can't wait to get my giver so I can start crafting a thank you! I am sitting here completely pregnant (my due date is in 9 days and I am already 2 cm dilated yayy!) So crafting up an awesome thank you would reaaaaaaaalllllllly help my boredom!

 By the way, thank you to ALL the givers! My husband has been glaring at me lately when I mention buying craft supplies or sending swap packages. Possibly because I spent $50 just on shipping for the ongoing holiday swap hahaha oops! So I really appreciate  getting some new stuff:)

I received a wonderful package of soaps from MissingWillow! There are three kids soaps with fishies in them that are jolly rancher flavoured! Let me just tell you that this pregnant woman was tempted to eat them lol And another three soaps for my sis-in laws that are made with milk from her goats! They are greatly appreciated! Thanks so much!

I received a thank you package from a swap angel today that just about made me cry!!! Thank you so much to Michelle for making a very hormonal 36 week pregnant woman happy!!!!
When the mailman arrived this morning I was so confused because I wasn't expecting a package and when I read Michelle's letter about wanting to craft for me DESPITE having back surgery I was flabbergasted! And I hadn't even seen the goodies yet, I was just so thankful that this wonderful person took time to craft for me:)

She went above and beyond and is an amazing crafter!
In all I received the cutest little jar for odds and ends, a notepad, the most beautifully crafted wipes case and a big brother sign!

Here are the pics:
All together except for big brother sign:

Wipes case alone:

Little one holding his big brother sign:

And on the wall (I need to straighten it out and actually put a nail):

"Look mom a pretty jar and I know what can go in it!! These packing peanuts!!"

Thanks again Michelle, you are my hero:)

So here are come pics of the present I sent for MissBarbara's husband! My picture taking is kind of crappy so sorry about that!

Hubby walks into craft room: "Why are you etching bugs on to glasses?!?!"
Me: "Cause I am making a Christmas present for an exterminator!"
Hubby: "Why?!?!"
Me: "Cause they are awesome! Why else?"
Hubby walks away shaking head lol

Spider glass:

Mosquito glass:

Ant glass:

Cockroach glass:

And just for fun I made some bug Christmas tags!

I basically just put santa hats of stockings with bugs haha

All packed up and ready to go:

I had lots of fun making this package and am so glad the glasses all made it in one piece! I don't trust the postal system!
