Ok, so I finally managed to get my hubby to take that picture lol (I swear, he's the only person I know that hates being behind the camera and in front of it with equal passion Wink)

Day 11/2 whichever....
The PJ pants I got:

The left over fabric:

(I loooooooooooove this fabric! It's too darn cute)

And then today...today I got the most awesome Christmas Tree:

I love everything so much, Sewpixie. Thank you very much for your generosity, I'm so happy you were my partner Cheesy  Kiss

Kiss Thank you so much  Kiss

So this wasn't exactly a swap...but I got a Christmas card from alwaysinmyroom yesterday. I figured I'd show it off here, as it's so cool Smiley

Here's my "card" Wink

From left to right, it's a bookmark. Above it is the actual card, next to that a piece of fabric. Next to the bookmark is some book jewelry, and then on the right side there are two gingerbread men and two gingerbread women. The latter are already up in my tree Smiley

And a close up of the ginger people

Thank you so much for this lovely surprise, alwaysinmyroom!  Kiss Kiss
You're too kind, and you made my day even brighter Smiley
Merry Christmas!

Naelany, you have a cat named Arwen? So do I!!! Tee hee Smiley

yes, yes I do. And one named Pippin Smiley You can see them below Wink

Sewpixie, I'm glad you like the fudge! If you like, I can send the recipe. Didn't think to include it...oops lol

And speaking of playing catch up with pictures, here are mine.

First up, day...8, or 4..whichever, I forget which way I'm going now lol

These have met with the highest stamp of approval, by the way...my niece loves the snowman one (been wearing it all day lol). I love them, thank you again Cheesy

Ok, now for today's stuff. As I mentioned earlier, I didn't get anything, but the cats did. I gave them the treats first, and they went nuts. Well, they were stand off-ish at first, but once they tried them...whoa baby!

(Pippin's on the left, Arwen's on the right)

Then I figured I'd see how they liked their new toy *giggle*. I love the face Pippin makes in this one

And here's another one, where they both had a firm hold on the cord

Finally, I took a picture of everything together. Well, I tried to... as you can see, Arwen wasn't about to leave any of the goodies out of her sight Wink

Sorry for the picture overload, folks, but I just had to share Smiley

Thank you again, Sewpixie! I'm so happy to finally have found treats they like Smiley

Oh, and I'm glad that you like the wine charms Smiley Made them, just for you Smiley

Oh wow...those beads are beautiful.

Ok, here is the picture I promised of my 5 gold rings Wink (this concept still amuses me *giggle*)

Sewpixie, how on earth did you know that I've been wanting to try to make a dreamcatcher with the star shape?

I'm sorry to say.. I still haven't received. Sad

I think the PO ate my package

Awww... do you have the DC#? I just received yesterday, and it was sent on the 9th, so it took a good long time. Maybe have your partner ask the PO to check for it??? I hope you get it soon, Selise, I know you've been waiting a while.

I know I haven't sent yet (I've seriously had the worst luck with crafting for this swap. It's not even funny anymore), but I received yesterday from paradisecrane. And though I'd offered to hold off on opening until after I'd sent her package out, she said she really wanted to know what I thought. So, without further ado...my goodies!

This is everything still wrapped (well, what few things had wrapping lol) and together:

yes, that bit of fabric in the bottom left corner is a quilt block she made for my Craftster quilt Smiley

Yes, that's right. Fawkes has found a new home after leaving Hogwarts. He arrived at my house and was immediately prowled upon by Pippin (see a pic of him in a bit). I had to chase Pippin away from Fawkes. Naughty kitty! Here is Fawkes, perched ontop of my sewing machine. After this shot, I made sure to put him safely in our bedroom, out of harms way.

(Great job on Fawkes...I love that you even gave him the healing tear!)

Now this is all the stuff unwrapped. From left to right:
3 owl ornaments, 3 mice (which were in one of the crackers...no live mice! Wink Thanks, paradiscrane...the cats love them), a small wooden book/box with the Griffyndor colors and insignia (sans lion) and next to that is the Golden Snitch, which is leaning against a small box of chocolates.

And here are a couple of action shots of the cats checking out one of the mice:
First Pippin checks it out

And then Arwen comes to make sure he's not keeping it for himself

Thank you very much for all the lovely goodies, paradisecrane. I love it all Smiley

Yay, I finally got the second part of my items in today, and got to open 2 days worth! Grin

Here's what I got for day 7. The note with it says " Bags and Beads! 3 zip bags to use or to gift + 4 packages of seed beads".

a shot of everything together:

The big bag (mine, all mine!):

The medium bag:

The small bag:

And then on to Day 6! The note with it says:
On the 6th Day of Christmas, my Craftster made for me... T. one T-shirt w/stenciling and 5 Teas... (haha, T... tea & tee shirt Smiley ). That note alone made me giggle Smiley

Everything together (I'm having a cup of the vanilla hazelnut tea right now...)

Close up of the T (yes, of course I put it on straight away! Duh!). I absolutely love it! It's sooo comfy! Any special care instructions I should know about, by the way? Because of the stencil?:

The color of the T-shirt is accurate in the photo of everything together.

Oh! And I also found a few little extras in the box when I took everything out:

Thank you so much, Sewpixie! I'm all giddy Cheesy

I got Thank You cards for day 5! Looky:

They're so cool! The gray stuff they're lying on are the envelopes lol. I love them, and they'll definitely get used, what with all the swapping Wink

Wow, this gallery's getting more amazing by the day. And I'm going to add to that right now! Wink

First a picture of everything as it came out of the box:

It's another skein of lovely yarn, and this time a hook roll for my crochet hooks (which I was in desperate need of, as my tacky plastic one's literally falling to pieces Wink)

And here's a shot of the inside:

Yes, that's right.... all three hooks have polymer handles! I'd love to know how you managed it. I've seen them on here before, but never did catch the how to of it. Oh...and stitch markers for crocheting? I never knew those existed! They're so cool.... Grin

Thanks Sewpixie!!! Ohh, can't wait to see what you think of yours today! Smiley

Ok, as promised here are my pictures of the lovely gifts Sewpixie's made for me/given me:

Here's the whole package:

A close up of the inside of the roll (see, I've already started using it! Though the needle still in its package was included already lol, as were the stitchmarkers):

And finally, a view of the length of the roll:

Thank you so much, Sewpixie!! By the way, I am in serious awe of your sewing skills! I hope one day I can sew as nicely as that Smiley

Yay Sewpixie, I'm glad you liked it!

Was that Day 6 from you to me, or me to you??? If it's from me to you, I think I know why that particular package was attacked *chuckles*. Tell them to behave, or Santa'll not let them open it Wink

Anywho! I opened my second package at 3am this morning (hey, that's when my day starts Tongue). And I got an embroidery kit!

Check it out! The little needlebook is made of the same fabric as my pincushion and measuring tape! I love it Cheesy. Thank you, Sewpixie!!! Ohh, almost forgot to ask... did you do the front of it as well? Is that crewelembroidery or something?? I've not seen it before. Love it though!
