Checking in! Nothing new to report. HOWEVER, I have to report that World Market has set up their Christmas stuff and I was so excited I almost had a heart attack right there in the store. They have little ornaments that are glitter elephants. GLITTER. ELEPHANTS. Also, lemon and rose turkish delight. I could seriously go broke in that store.

Also, I saw snowflakes yesterday. Smiley

I got my package from Yzzilnoaj and I am SO EXCITED!! She did such a lovely job of wrapping everything and threw in all sorts of yummy candy.





Even better, she included both my kids. They are both thrilled they were "remembered". My son doesn't look like it, but this was the only picture where they weren't both blurry from jumping up and down.  Cheesy


They are all now back in the boxes and safely stashed away for opening day. Thanks Yzzilnoaj. <3

DAY ONE

This cute little snowman is my first package. The best part: its DRYER BALLS! Simple, yes but I have really been needing more so I am super happy right now. Cant wait for tomorrow.



I forgot to let my kids open their day one gift until day two. Whoops! Well, they each got a travel coloring book, decorated tin and colored pencils! Plus my daughters tin has a sharpener. They are really happy about these gifts.

DAY TWO[\b]

Bottle brush trees, 13 of them! I have been wanting a whole mess of them for this bookcase, but I never get them for me. These are definitely going to be treasured decorations for a long time.

DAY THREE

Ephemera! I always need more and there are a bunch of lovely pieces in here.

DAY FOUR


I told my partner how much we love hiking and camping, and she same through with some awesome travel games. Inside each altoids tin there are TWO games in matchboxes. They are so neat and my kids love them.

DAY FIVE

Christmas napkins and rings, already washed and ready to use. These are going to look so cute with my plates for Christmas breakfast.

DAY SIX

I literally SQUEALED when I saw the inside of this box...pompom trim! Twelve colors, two yards each.

And it makes a fab scarf.  Cheesy

DAY SEVEN

Indoor snowball fight for the kiddos! They have used it extensively already.

DAY EIGHT

My darling husband got the most useful thing he has ever gotten from a swap. Two little tins for camping, one for starting a fire and another for spicing foods. Inside each are little straws filled with tinder, matches and spices. He is super happy about these.

DAY NINE

A beautiful snowflake penny rug.

DAY TEN




Travel toys for my kids...these are ingenious! The one for my daughter has lego board on the outside and a mix of blocks on the inside. My son got one with felt roads and eight mini cars.

DAY ELEVEN

I got a necklace right off my pinterest! It is an insanely long, super beautiful friendship bracelet necklace. I can't wait to wear it.

DAY TWELVE

My partner really knows how to wrap up a swap! I have been dying for a wrap skirt like this and she delivered. It is so lovely and going to be so comfy to wear.

My package is SENT!!!

*happy dance! *

You are so grounded. I know I shouldnt...but this just sends a panic into my bones. LOL

I am going to have to have my husband hide it from me, too. Because...I AM SO EXCITED!!!

 I will watch that package for you...

I am with bunny, I have a LONG list of faves. I am a sucker for good cocoa and Terry's chocolate oranges. But as far as baking, my family mixes it up and makes a few different things every year. Krumkake, baklava, meringues, shortbread, biscotti, caramels, pinwheels, russian teacakes, rosettes. We always do spritz cookies and I let my kids go nuts with sprinkles. And I make apricot kolachy (my great grandmas recipe) for Christmas Day breakfast.

Man, I love sweets.

I went to the craft store last week to pick up some supplies, only to find that they didn't have their Christmas items out yet. Sure it's only September, but isn't that the best time to get crafters thinking about Christmas crafts?

Ha ha!! I waas at the craft store with my kids a few days ago, and they were both flipping out. "Why is the halloween stuff out?" "Why are there Christmas trees, it's not even close yet?" Oh, they have much to learn.  Cheesy

My husband is leaving tomorrow for a week long bow hunting trip and it FINALLY rained, so will be getting a good chunk of crafting done this week.

Man, I don't what I would do without snow. It can snow as early as September here, but that is a bit more rare. We tend to get it in October and it sticks around until about April. A few years ago it did snow pretty well on Memorial Day though. This year, even snow haters are praying for it because the firefighters have said only a good snow will stop everything from burning. Right now we have 4 fires that have burned over 50,000 acres. We are actually over 1 million acres burned this year. Sad

On a MUCH happier note, I finished a small project Sunday and it felt great. So I have 2 days totally done, another day mostly done and the rest I have all the supplies for. Hooray!! I am having a lot of fun crafting for my partner. Smiley

Well, I continue to look at my supplies every day on the way into the studio and sigh. But once Labor Day is over, I plan on spending Tuesday knocking out at least one project. I am SO excited to just craft.
