I'm glad that you like it and that it survived the journey - it gives me hope for the others Cheesy


Here is my lovely wreath from kbrison!  It has a pleasing weight and I can't wait to hang it up!


I've got SIX ornaments to add to my bragging list today!

The first one is this gorgeous shiny tin ornament.  I asked for a surprise with the colours and I love what goldfish picked.  I'd like to try and make these myself but I think I might have an accident if I try to fold sharp metal as she has done - thank you for saving me from a trip to A&E!

The second is this lovely fluffy white mitten from rockingbearranch.  I love the detail around the cuff and I keep stroking the felt!

Third and fourth are these two Teesha Moore style patches from gala_apples.  Again, I asked for a surprise and I love the fabrics she chose, they are lovely and tactile with all the little bumps and stitches everywhere.

Fifth and sixth are these supercute felt ornaments from bec99.  I keep putting the little stocking on my finger and I especially love the snowflake detail on the mitten.  bec99 even sent me some cute Christmas stickers as an extra Smiley


This cute little fella arrived in the post today.  It's not obvious from the photograph but he is quite sparkly in person.  Thanks, MommyTheMaid, I'll take good care of him. Smiley


I received this excellent star from Ninaprettyballerina.  Crochet is a mystery to me so I love getting crocheted things from swappers.  Thank you very much!


I received my final ornament today, and what a way to finish.  This little guy  from crazyda79 is too cute for words!

Beautiful star!  I can't wait for mine to arrive!  Anyone else ready to pull out the Christmas stuff already?  I bought new lights for my house last year after Christmas and can't wait to put them up!

I received this beautiful wreath from kbrison

She also sent me a little gift.. a beach tin that I had admired in a previous post!  Now I can dream I am at the beach anytime I want!

I received my knit stocking from Avesthel over the weekend.  It is so adorable!  

I received lots of new ornaments over the weekend.
My stamped deer on burlap and origami star from AIMR and my awesome TM patches from gala_apples

Love them all!!!!!!!!!

I received my last ornament last night from NinaPrettyBallerina a beautiful star

and I got photos of the paper star from avacadocolorado.  I couldn't capture the colors very well but it's beautiful in real life.

Thanks all for such a fun swap!

Loving the gallery so far!

I will modify this post and add my goodies as they arrive Smiley

I got 2 wonderful packages today!  I love happy mail!

First package is a beautiful snowflake star from Amazon_warrior.  My oldest daughter seems to think she needs it for a necklace....I told her to keep her grubby meathooks off of it!

My son....wanted the box it came in!....He didn't get it.

Second package....An adorable super soft mitten from rockingbearranch.  Along with the symbolism behind her egg ornaments should I desire to try and make one. The little teddybear piece she sent along is going to become a TM patch for my tree as well Smiley  Now this mitten also had a thief...this time my youngest daughter.  She thought it would make a great blanket for her tiny toy dog.  Nope, not gonna happen.

Seriously.  Anyone else have kids that try to thief every single package that comes?  My kids think if its crafted, it should be for them.

I have 2 more packages to load pictures now, and hubby said there was more tonight when he picked up the mail so hopefully I will add them tomorrow.

For your viewing pleasure tonight.....

Some cute snowman TM patches from gala_apples.  

And another cute Christmas Tree patch from LovelyMiss.

I am getting giddy just thinking about setting up my tree!

Last ornament!  My little jingle mouse from gigglygirl!

I loved this swap!  Looking forward to next year!

My mailbox is overflowing, it really was, they actually put all of it in one of their official plastic crates and left it on my porch!  My camera is giving me trouble, so some were phone shots.

All the amazing creations!

Once the last ornament arrives, I will try to get a tree shot or two.

First to arrive was the Flapping Penguin from goldfishpollywog. This may never make it onto my tree because it's just too much fun to play with it!

Next to arrive was the intricately folded star from Avocadoeldorado. I do some origami, but have absolutely no idea how she did this. And it's much sturdier than I thought it might be. As long as I take care it should last for years.

My dear friend AIMR sent the wonderful reindeer on burlap ornament I was expecting, but she also sent an origami star which relates to her heritage and was a wonderful surprise.

The most recent ornament to arrive was a felt wreath from our faithful (and very patient) organizer, Gatorwrangler.

Thanks everyone!
