Oh crap!  I forgot her when I posted because I was so excited I put her straight on the tree before I even took pictures!

She was absolutely perfect! All cute and round Smiley  I loved those jiggly eyes. I've never seen them in blue before Smiley

She has the place of honor on our tree...right smack in the center front where all can see Smiley

Sorry I missed her in the first round of photo action!

Thanks everyone!  I really love crafting for swaps.  It breaks me out of my comfort zone!  But the penguin was forgotten.  Poor pengie!  Grin

 Shocked  after telling all of you to remember to post pictures of what you had received, I just realized this morning that I hadn't posted what my second partner sent me.  My excuse - I took the pictures on hubby's camera and he took it to his work truck.  Today I got him to leave it home so I could post.

This is what Moose_hat sent to me:

Not one but TWO stockings!  I just realized you can't see the bell that is attached to the flower one - it makes a pretty sound!


A painted trinket box and 3 cute animals (I think they are made from clay)


The penguin is not attached to the box, he's a magnet and I stuck him onto the clasp before taking the picture.

Some candles, folded paper boxes (each decorated differently) and flower bundles.


Needing an on-line break ... I'll be back later in 2018.

I have been lame and have not posted pics of the wonderful stocking and goodies I received a while ago from Molliemoo2883.  Here is a pic of everything together, wrapped:

Stocking, container of my handmade chocolates and my favorite sour/gummy candy ever, a cute little wreath and a mini stocking that she said was for my desk at work.  (They are at my desk now and making me feel quite festive!)

Everything together unwrapped:

Close-up of two lovely pairs of earrings (I am wearing the silver and purple ones right now) and an amazing Russian doll shrinky dink pendant/charm which I absolutely adore!

Here is a scrap necklace from my Wists:

The cutest ornaments that are on my tree right now.  When I got paired with Molliemoo2883, I stalked her and saw that she had made some similiar ones before.  I secretly hoped she would send me some and she did!

Two matching candles:

Group photo with foam Christmas stamp, lemon soap, Carol book, large jingle bell, and New York post cards!

She even sent chocolate for my husband.  He has never received anything in a swap so he was very excited.

and him opening it:

There is one package that I can't open until Christmas.

Thank you so much Molliemoo2883.  You were a great swap partner!

Nice ornaments! Did she use epoxy or fairy dust to hold those caps on?

I think that she used glittery glue and just filled in every inch.  She will have to let us know exactly though.
