OMG! I AM SO GLAD YOU LIKE EVERYTHING TANZA! I had such swap anxiety not being able to send the whole package! Smiley LOL Merry Christmas! Yes, the stocking is from an old pants leg. Cheesy When I got your cd and you had JOHN EDWARDS!!!!!!!!!!!! ((EGAD!!!!) on it I knew we were a perfect match! I guess you could say I am similar in mix to you. I recycle a lot with my crafts! I love seeing what I can make outta something old!

I know my partner said she had a hard time getting a pic of my purse I made her that wasnt dark- so here's one also one of the grinch inspired felted pens since I think they were in the shot together.

Felted Knit handbag- made up the pattern as I went along. :-)

Grinchy Felted Pens :-)


Non judgement day is near.

Ooo yay! Pictures!  Grin

Hehe I love how you named the gnome toasty! I'm glad you still like him. Perhaps he could be a chimney sweep or something? A greasy mechanic? Lol messy occupations..

And I must say that that purse was quite the difficult little bugger! The ribbons did NOT want to cooperate at all when I made it but eventually I  got it to work! I hope ya like it!

I will be out of state until February. I may be able to check emails periodically so if you need me, it would be more timely to email me. Thanks. ANY OWED SWAP PACKAGES WILL GO OUT BEFORE I LEAVE.

So many wonderful things going on here! Really creative ideas.
Ok I'm going to post what I sent to Ceilidh and what I received from her. Warning there are a lot of pics here.

This is what I sent her
This is a pic of everything. The stocking, I made a stencilled singlet, lollipops, chocolate, tea, a painted little jewellery box, a painted photo frame, a little hand bound book and some jewellery. I also attempted to make some lip balm which didn't make this photo and some simple wine glass charms.

This is my poor stocking, the frame and the box.

This is the shrinky dink jack skellington earrings.

This is the earrings that I like  Grin

This is a necklace that I kind of made up as I went along. It was based on a similiar one which I can't find the original eepss.

I just put a few photos up. Here are some from what I received!!
This is a pic of everything! She knitted my stocking! Eee!! So awesome! And she made this fantastic advent calender, some decorated decorations, some chocolate and candy canes, some craft items, a little pencil case, a pretty butterfly stencil, a mixed cd.

A pic of the decorations she decorated and the bought santa. And a little velvet drawstring pouch. So cute!

This is the stencilled singlet. It was her first one! The little pencil case and mixed cd.

The very cute stocking in pink and black a fave combo of mine.

And this is the advent calender. It can't show all the detail but it is soo good.

Thanks again SevsOnlyGirl for organizing and to Ceilidh for the swap package!

So I was about to lose faith in the postal system (a few of my holiday presents hadn't arrived, and i was waiting on this swap pkg).  Then lo and behold I got three packages in one day!!!! Crazy.  Anyways i recieved this great swap package from Stina, all the way from Sweden where there stamps are really cool (but I forgot to take of picture of that)

any ways on to the loot.... which is awesome by the way

Here is the camo stocking, kittyville hat (minus the ears), a cute bird ornament, a kitty puppet washcloth, and a great headband.  The hat is wonderful-- I was swinging my pom-poms on a string all the way to the bus stop this morning.

And we can forget all the candy.  Look the stocking is just spilling out all sorts of Swedish teas, toffees and choc bars.  Also look at the neat skull beaded magnet, and bag of misc. beads.

Hurray .  thanks so much Stina I love it all.  And thanks for SevsOnlyGirl for organizing and reassuring me that "no the postal service doesn't hate me"

happy holidays everyone.

One down and four to go!  Woohoo!!!

We have one package being tracked down by the P.O., two in transit and one not sent yet. 

Everyone else should have positive feedback at this time.  Please check and make sure.  If you are in the partner set that is waiting on a package, as soon as it arrives, you'll both get feedback.

Thanks for everyone being so nice, supportive and fun in this swap!  It's been fantastic and everyone's been great!!
