I received my package and got to open 3 days at once! That was fun!

Day 12:  Tons of Chocolaty goodness from the UK! A couple are represented just by their package as I opened it on the way to pick up my kids from school... Tongue



Day 11: Girl's Day!  Fabulous earrings, necklaces and bracelets! and they're in sets! some for me some for my daughter...but I got the Lion's share!  Wink



here's a couple up close shots







Day 10: My Daughter's day.  She was thrilled. She loved everything and hast most of it on at once! Hair clips, an adorable "secret garden" box, some roving (that I'll help her spin up and make something out of) an adorable pouch 3 hair ties (that she loved!) a journal , a cute sticker and two amazing flower broaches. Edit: forgot to mention the three tiny turtles. They are super cute and elicited a shriek of joy, you can see them well in the garden box.




Day 9:

Nine colors of roving! I loved/squished each one and wish I had a hundred bobbins to spin it all. The photos don't do them justice. They are vivid and wonderful. You can't really see or appreciate the subtle changes in the gray colored one it has lots of colorful streaks. And the green is really cool too. Well they all are and in my favorite colors!












Day 8: "Deck the Halls"

And it was awesome! I got four beautiful napkin rings, two amazing candles with what I'm guessing is Welsh for "happy Christmas"? (Nadolig Llawen) the words just look cool! LOL and they smell amazing!  beautiful ornaments and four beautiful gift bags. Not to mention two adorable coin purses that were immediately claimed by my daughter!


 

Day 7: I call it the Day of AWESOMENESS

It's mario stuff! I loved this the first time I saw it, now I have one of my very own! It's made with perler beads.





Just a little pic of some of the roving spun up while I wait for the next package.  The holidays make the postal service slowwwww.




Excuse the confusion. I got to open everything at once and in my excitement I don't know if I got everything is in the right day. Smiley

Day 6:

A day for my son. It's a wonderful ATC kit! There's sooooooo much He's already agreed to share with me (Like he had a choice! Cheesy )













Day 5!

Stitch markers for me and my daughter AND a handwritten recipe book! It's awesome. The recipes are from the UK and sound wonderful! My kids were really excited! One of them is called Bubble and Squeak. Doesn't that just SOUND cool??





Day 4!

A great assortment of things and wonderful bag pins/broaches. I plan on using them for my shawls. I especially love the nintendo one!lol



She wrote a little joke about the fact that she was supposed to stop at four! LOL I didn't get as good a picture as I had hoped of the chocolates. They have already been devoured or I would take another!LOL 

Day 3:

2 bags of yummy squishy roving and a nice panel of fleece in my hubby's favorite team! Hubby wants pillows out of it. I imagine that must have been hard to get american football stuff all the way over there in the UK!



Day 2: Smelly/sparkley stuff!!
Delicious smelling bath bombs!



Beautiful trinket boxes. (my phone is next to them for size reference)
Can you believe she MADE these?Huh  Shocked  The sparkle can't be captured properly they are AWESOME.

So, Lukenlarry said I should freeze Day 8 until the day to open it.. well.. my teeny freezer was full - so I made the executive *snerk* decision to open day 8 as day 12... regular order will continue tomorrow. Cheesy

and may I say that Day 8 is FABULOUS.. OMG!! An assortment of amazing cookies WITH the recipes!!! I am in heaven. I have not had thumbprint cookies in so long.. and Russian tea cookies.. and cutout cookies.. I might have to go invade Lukenlarry's house next year at Christmas for more of them Wink



Onto Day 11 (which was day 12 ) I got the COOLEST stuff!!
so here is the lot...

there were the cutest thank you cards

a dotee bird kid with a little felt booklet thing for needles, etc (awesome!) and a handmade little suitcase for my gnome, Emong  some candy canes and tootsie rolls!! I LOVE Tootsie rolls!!!

there was also a photo frame and a shadow box, some party invitations.. and a photo album of pictures of Emong on his adventures!!!

and this is only Day 11!!!! squeeee!! Cheesy

Day 10 is also a collection of awesomeness... napkins and napkin rings!!!! With orange and magenta button decoration. How flippin cute are these?!

and a close-up (notice the festive sachet of tootsie rolls??? LOVE it)


Now to Day 10. This goes WITH my awesome napkins... placemats!!!! AND oven mits and a pot holder.. and a set of spatulas!! the fabric on the place mats is spectacular with the reverse of the dots and colors on each. YEAH!!!
(oh, and I already ate the tootsie rolls, so they were not in the picture. hehe)

and with a napkin...

then the cooler then anything oven mits! Look at the cute yellow trim!!!


Day 9.... oooh day 9.. more fabulousness!
There is a selection of bags in here.. all in this gorgeous silk-looking material in green and bronze. 3 are large hobo type bags, then there are 3 smaller ones with pockets that are perfect for stashing in my purse Smiley


Then 2 toys... Jack the Cat has already stolen them - laughing maniacally and batting them about.

then these adorable little ice skate clips... soooo cute!


Day 7... oooh day 7... Day 7 was all about Jack the Cat. I did not even finish digging things out of his new stocking before he made a flying leap into the middle of the pile yelling "MINE!!!! ALL MINE!!!" I was appalled at his lack of manners, but you can't fault a little dude for being excited.
He insisted on posing in all the shots - I think he was afraid I would claim the items for my own. Silly kitty.
So Jack now has a stocking, a new bowl, fish dangling from a stick, feathers to also dangle, felt cat toys and his very own magnetic frame (with pics!) that I can put on the fridge. happy, happy kitty.

oooh... food goes in here.. right???

mmmmmmm fish bones... such a yummy kitty treat.. GIMME!

then batting around the fishing pole. totally loves it.

Jack say thank you!!!! I might not see him again for a few days as he wears off the newness of the toys. Wink

Day 6.. day 6 are sparkly, sequined ornaments!!!!


Day 5... Day 5 turned into squealing.. it was somewhat comical and Jack the Cat looked up from his purple lukenlarry fish toy and raised his eyebrow.. well.. not really - but that is the impression that I got. Cheesy
CHECK THIS OUT!
frames, drawstring bags (one used as wrapping!), embroidery kit, transfers (of chocolate goodness!!) and Tootsie rolls.. can I just say how much I am loving my daily allotment of Tootsie Rolls? hehehe
I count the shiny wrapping fabric as a bonus.. it is 31 flavors of fabulous fun!


AND.. I love the movie Hairspray.. she embroidered me a hand towel with Tracy on it!!!!! OMG!!


Now we get to Day 4... Day 4 also made me squeal.. and jump around going "yes!!" it is a jewelry pouch I have been wanting forevah. I travel a fair amount and have been lusting after some good way to pack a bit of jewelry on trips.. this is so perfect.. AND she filled it with some gorgeous jewelry!! and it was wrapped in an apron!!!


Day 3 was another treasure trove...
a gorgeous piece of asian fabric in a gorgeous blue.. with a little pillow with some awesome detailing to it. Cheesy


Day 2... Day 2 included a woven rug, and a game.. again, I love to travel the world, so she made me "The World Globe Circler" game.. with handmade pieces!! AND another jewelry pouch to keep them in!!


and on the First day of Christmas, Lukenlarry gave to meeeeeeeee... a gorgeous lapquilt that Jack the Cat has already claimed. he is quite the greedy little bugger. Wink

and a closeup of some of the fabulous fabrics...


what an amazing, amazing assortment. Some of these are way above and beyond the call... Lukenlarry, thank you. This has been fun and fabulous.

Merry Christmas!!!!

On the 9th day of Christmas, 2711 gave to me...

A bag of goodies! Supplies to be specific Cheesy



there's 1) four types of fabric, 2) sewing pins, 3) fabric "markers" (pencils), 4) thread, 5) a seam ripper (hahaha! - If you haven't read, I can never find one), 6) some cute holiday stickers, 7) a Hello Kitty cross-stitch bookmark kit, Cool needles, and 9) a bag full of bits of ribbon and trims.

HOW FUN!!

On the 8th day of Christmas, 2711 gave to me...

A recipe book!



each page has a different recipe (8 total)



and each recipe is on a little laminated bookmark so I can pull them out and not get the cookbook all messy while cooking! This is brilliant! (I get so much crap on my cookbooks!)



On the 7th day of Christmas, 2711 gave to me...

(Days 9 and 8 are still in the mail, so 2711 told me to skip ahead to days 7 and 6 Grin)

(opened on day 9)

Day 7 was the random day Smiley

A Christmas pudding (don't know if it's figgy or not though) and some chocolates that look like vintage buttons.



the back of the chocolate box that shows the buttons



A rainbowy necklace and bracelet (the bracelet jingles!) I tried to get an action shot, but my wrist was too close to the camera, and I wasn't going to attempt a photo of my own chest



star earrings! pink and orange are my favorites, and stars too!



The cutest print of robots with a cupcake! I almost put this on my wist (in fact, I thought I had, but I couldn't find it just now) and now it's all mine!



And possibly the best part of day 7... a craft magazine from December 1972! There is some wierd stuff in here, it's pretty funny to look through. 2711 says if I make anything out of it she wants to see pics... that sounds like a challenge! Wink



And I'm so glad she drew my attention to page 12, the woman in (what she calls) the "scary makeup". I happen to look like Princess Lea disguised as a hooker in a very unflattering sweater every day... don't know what's so "scary" about it! Wink



That is just ... special... Grin

On the 6th day of Christmas, 2711 gave to me...

(opened on day 8 )

6 ceramic ornaments of stars! Presumably made by Louise Alexander.



One of the points broke off in transit, but it's a clean break, so I think I should be able to glue it back with no problem. We both got pretty lucky with the breakables so far, all things considered.

On the 5th day of Christmas, 2711 gave to me...

(opened on day 7)

A sock monkey!



and a piggy bank!



and a Rapunzel scarf!



(it almost touches my toes!)



and a little pouch!



(inside)


and a peacock feather necklace!



Lots of exclamation points!!

On the 4th day of Christmas, 2711 gave to me...

(opened on day 6)

4 place mats! (that are pretty darn similar to the ones I sent 2711 for day 6 - which happened to be the day I opened these! haha! great minds think alike! Wink)



On the 3rd day of Christmas, 2711 gave to me...

OOH, I'm a spoiled McBenno! One thing I really wanted for Christmas was a set of bamboo crochet hooks. I didn't put this in my swap questionnaire, but 2711 found them on my amazon.com wish list (super stalker!). The funny thing is apparently my dad had looked for some for me but couldn't find any, so I didn't think I was going to get any, and that night when I came home from my parent's house, 2711s package was waiting for me! YAY!



ooh, so pretty!

ALSO! I got a WIP bag with a hold for the yarn to come through while working (which I DID ask for Cheesy)





The buttons are cute little pins, but I didn't get a good pic of them.

Item 3 (yes, there's more!) was a magic yarn ball! I've never had one of these before! I cheated and unrolled the whole thing because she warned that if I didn't use it soon it would get yucky - I found gummy candies inside, so that explains that. The yarn ball was kawaii themed - WHEE!



On the 2nd day of Christmas, 2711 gave to me...

(opened on day 5)

2 skirts! YAY! Cheesy

One is a pink and purple and turquoise-y twirly skirt - super girly Wink (which is a good thing!)



the other is a more A-line style skirt with a drawstring waist - white with a pretty mossy green and berry colored floral print at the bottom - with sparkles too!



On the 1st day of Christmas, 2711 gave to me...

TWO THINGS! Cheater! Wink

An AWESOME sewing machine cover and a scrap catcher/organizer thingie (is there a good word ofr this?) for beneath the machine. The fabric is amazing! There's a little pocket on the left that I put my scissors in already Cheesy And the little applique on the cover is adorable!





Thanks for being such an awesome partner, 2711! This was tons of fun!

On Day 12 deadbathducky gave to me... cookies! OMG were they tasty


On Day 11 deadbathducky gave to me.... well I admit today's picture and item was put with yesterdays and I ate them last week. Because I'm gluten intolerant and she gave me gingerbread cookies. Do you KNOW how LONG it's been since I had GINERBREAD COOKIES? These were gingerbread gift tags but, well, they didn't last long enough to be tagged onto a gift.


On Day 10 deadbathducky gave to me... cards that don't photograph well at all because they are 3D!! Not all 10 were photographed.



Day 9 was scented day! I got two candles (1 mint, 1 vanilla), 2 insence (1 vanilla, 1 cinnamon), scented teas (mmmmm chai) and a beautiful candle plate thingy thrown by deadbathducky!
(Sorry for the blur!)





On Day 8 deadbathducky gave to me
A Hello Kitty pouch and a stuffie owl keyring. Perfect for my new bag!


Earrings! Yay! I like the day of the dead style skulls


A TARDIS necklace shown with the pretty box everything came in.


But to out nerdy the TARDIS, I also got (but didn't photograph) recipes to make World of Warcraft food! And she even rewrote them gluten free style! Batwings anyone?

Day 7 deadbathducky gave to me grocery bags


And to break the gifting up here's what some of my work colleagues did with their day. Wrapped things. Computers, pens, post its, keyboards, whatever they found on this poor guys desk...


Day 6 was pottery




Day 5 was kind of random including a tshirt for my boyfriend, books and a heat pack





On Day 4 deadbathducky gave to me dvds and popcorn. Nomnomnom. Now I know how I'm hiding from the increasing temperature....

On Day 3 I got three pattern books, two for bears and 1 for dog coats


Day 2 I got a woodburned picture of a dolphin and a folio bag. Pictures to come when I'm back home from family



Day 1 I got a white cardy made by deadbathducky's Grandmother. It has cables! they look difficult.


Merry Christmas everyone

On the 12th day of Christmas, dear Celtic sent to me!

Lookit all the goodies!

For me:  Lovely holiday pin, some very cute (never seen those before!) puzzle piece wreathes, and yummy drink mixes

For Lily:  A fun pencil with gingerbread man erasers, markers and wooden ornaments to craft, cocoa mint candy canes, a cute teddy lolli, and GOLDFISH!  (A favorite!)

For the kitties:  Two jingly toys for Nova and two catnip toys for Squish.

On the 11th day of Christmas, dear Celtic sent to me!It was decor day! 

Two handpainted ornaments (a kitty for Lily and a primitive art sheep for me), and 4 tree of life ornaments in colors representing the seasons!

Four votives, 2 snowy and 2 Father Christmas

2 crocheted (?) snowflakes, and two bells (that really jingle!  for cute!)

On the 10th day of Christmas, dear Celtic sent to me!
Okay, by way of explanation:  I LOVE OFFICE SPACE.  Not only am I an office drone, I have a red stapler, and then when I got promoted this last time they moved me into the file room!!!  'Nuff said.   Grin

Fun office stuff, two list pads and some GINORMOUS paperclips.

Cute hair stuff, two crocheted and one beaded.  (LOVE the beaded one!)  Not sure if they're going to be used on me or my daughter more.   Cheesy

Two note books (can never have to many) and a coffee (or in my case, hot cocoa) cozy!

A gym shirt that says "No more fat chics: waging war with chocolate" in a yummy chocolate brown, and fridge magnets to keep track of my New Year's weight loss! 

I'm having so much fun with this!!!   Cheesy

On the 9th day of Christmas, dear Celtic sent to me!Okay so I haven't taken pictures yet but it's my favorite day so far!  I got 7 Where the Wild Things Are ornaments, a painted book box with the cover art from the same book, and a KNIT WILD THING!  I literally gasped when I opened the first ornament.  Pics to come tonight!

See what I mean:



On the 8th day of Christmas, dear Celtic sent to me!
The emerald green one is for my daughter (sometime in the future when she won't break it) and the bracelet is something similar to one in her etsy which I LOVE.  And lookit that tree necklace

A measuring tape bracelet from my wist, (I believe made by Hollistercobabe?), a four leaf clover keychain (made with a clover celtic found herself!) and two bookmarks!

Technically this is four pairs of earrings, because the ones on the right are actually interchangable, each bead can slip off!


On the 7th day of Christmas, dear Celtic sent to me!FOOD!  I believe I did take pictures before I devoured it all, so I'll try to post them tonight after I get home from work.  I fell asleep on the couch last night before the baby even went to bed, so I didn't get them up last night.  BAD SWAPPER!   Anyway, there were several kinds of brownies, and biscotti, and peanut butter bars and YUM!  Also, four beaded wreath ornaments that are tres cute!
Thanks celticgoddess!
Pics!



On the 6th day of Christmas, dear Celtic sent to me!
Yummy warm things for me and my daughter!

My fantastic fingerless gloves, hat, and curly scarf!


These are for my daughter, hat mittens and scarf!

And proof that these came just in time:



On the 5th day of Christmas, dear Celtic sent to me!
Fantastic smelling stress reliever pouches for the freezer.  One for muscle soreness, one for sinus/migrane pain.  Also dish cloths (no idea how she expects me to use these on dirty dishes, they're too pretty!) and a beautiful mosaic picture fram with mirrors and flat glass marbles.

On the 4th day of Christmas, dear Celtic sent to me!A felted bowl and cup, a donut pincushion, and a crochet hook roll!  Aren't they beautiful??


On the 3rd day of Christmas, dear Celtic sent to me!
My own knit plush menagerie!

A beautiful green pachyderm, a pink kitty (with a hearted bum!), and a fun folded bun-rab!  (with gorgeous sparkly purple yarn!)

On the 2nd day of Christmas, dear Celtic sent to me!Okay, so I cheated and opened this early because celtic wasn't going to be around on Christmas Eve, and I wanted her to be around when I opened it.  And wow!

VERY cute royal purple felted bag with a very cute button.  But wait, the best is yet to come!

SOCKS!  My very own pair of perfectly blue hand-knitted socks!  You have no idea how happy these make me! 
On the FIRST day of Christmas, dear Celtic sent to me!An amazing crotcheted afghan!  I love it, it's so warm and cozy!  Thank you so much!



Celtic!  Thank you so much for a fantastic 12 Days Swap!  I couldn't have asked for a better partner.  Well... I could have, but it wouldn't have gotten me anywhere.  You know what I mean.   Wink  I love everything, and you treated both my daughter and I like queens!  I hope we stay in touch, and I definitely hope we have the opportunity to swap with each other again!  I hope you and your hubby (and your furbabies!) enjoyed it as much as we did!

Kish!  You're amazing, and wonderful, and I very much hope we can do this again in...oooohhhh, another 9 months or so?  LOL  I've loved every moment, and I hope the goods in this swap outweighed the bads for you.  Also, has anyone ever told you that in some of your user icons you totally look like Dr. Brennan's best friend on Bones?  Like, in a totally complimentary way. 

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!!  See you guys next swap!

Also, please ignore all the junk on my couch in that one photo.  Heheh... it's really a spilled package of diapers (my daughter likes to pull them out and throw them everywhere) and a couple of her books.  It looks much worse than it is.  Wink



On the 9th Day of Christmas, my Mimi gave to meeee...

- elephant watering can.  This is great!  I love love love it!

- orange elephant stuffie, made by aeronberry.  Sooo soft and so cute.   Cheesy
- blue elephant stuffie made by Mimi, which is also FREAKING ADORABLE!

- a Christmas patchwork quilted stocking (this counts as two smalls)
- two dark chocolate bars yummmmmmmo
- missing from the photos because my hubby stole and hid the bag (partially because he loves them and partially because he doesn't want the kids to get a sugar high... heh) is a 3 pound (!!) bag of Haribo gummy bears!  The BEST kind!  Muahahaha!




On the 6th Day of Christmas, my Mimi gave to meeee...

On the 5th Day of Christmas, my Mimi gave to meeee...

- travel jewelry roll (apple fabric); this is great because I always want to take jewelry on trips but I never want to take a box filled with it.
- mushroom earrings and owl hair tie made by pinkanddinky, felted necklace made by la_chrystelle - Love all of these!  I've been wearing the hair tie practically since I opened it
- tree of life malachite necklace, earrings, and bracelet made by katymai; lovely!  I love malachite!
- rapunzel scarf (so pretty!)

On the 4th Day of Christmas, my Mimi gave to meeee...

- batik wallet (this is AWESOME!)
- Home Sewn (book - such pretty projects)
- crayola crayon candles!!  I loooooove the smell of Crayola crayons!  Mimi is too sweet.  Smiley
- A sewing machine apron, in which I can store scissors, spools of thread, etc.  What a great idea, and something I will definitely put to use the next time I sew!



Once again, lovely lovely functional and beautiful items.  Smiley  I have a super great swap partner!  Thank you, Mimi!

On the 3rd Day of Christmas, my Mimi gave to meeee...

- a beautiful quilt for my daughter, all flannel, so soft and precious!  The first photo shows the backing fabric and the next photo is of the quilt top.
- an embroidered owl wall hanging.  There's obviously a more close-up photo of that as well.  Smiley  This is gorgeous and so nicely done, and will look fabulous in our living room! 




Mimi rocks... you all are probably getting tired of reading that by now... Smiley

On the 2nd Day of Christmas, my Mimi gave to meeee...

- a "learn to paint" kit, with two canvases, some paint, paintbrushes, a paintbrush cup (owl!), and a beautiful fabric basket Mimi made.  Smiley
- a spinning kit, courtesy of lapoli, with lots of wool and a spindle, plus a magazine about spinning.



I'm excited to learn!  Thank you, Mimi!  You're going to create a monster... once I start spinning I'm going to be obsessed with it.  Haha.   Cheesy

On the 1st Day of Christmas, my Mimi gave to meeee...

A BATIK QUILT!  I looooooove it, it's SO beautiful!  Thank you, Mimi!  Gorgeous.



I couldn't hang it because it was too heavy for my clips to hold, so I had to lay it out.  Crappy pictures, but it's pretty obvious that it is a beautiful quilt.  I love it.

I've had so much fun swapping with you, Mimi!  I love everything you gave me and I will treasure it all.  Thank you again!

Thank you kish for organizing this whirlwind, and thanks to everyone else for creating beautiful things for me to look at!  Happy holidays!    Grin
