TwistedTruth - I'm glad that you liked everything.  I'm sorry that some of the labels fell off or smeared - I was worried about the cold and all.  The Monkey Farts are supposed to be banana/mango/all the exotic fruits a monkey would eat. Cheesy

I am glad you liked it all, I couldn't believe that I had to fit in 2 boxes - but it was all bulky stuff.lol

I'm so jealous of all the goodies!  I can't wait for my stocking to get here, and better yet for the one I sent to reach its destination. Cheesy

Today I received my Christmas Stocking from Mollie Moo.

I tried to resist temtation ans wait for my children to get home but I couldn't.

This is what came out of the parcel ! Isn't the stocking a great colour?

And here is all my loot !

I really like the slippers - will put them on after collecting my daughter from hockey!
One lollipop has disappeared already (due to my son and he says thanks!)
One choclate has disappeared (well it was nice !)
The two decorations are in my tree.
The cookie cutter is in the kitchen .... I still have to find a home for eveything else !

Thank-you very much for this swap - hope you get your pc sorted soon Mollie Moo - shout if you want me to post pics of what I sent you !!

Great swap guys and great pics here too.

Bonza Blue.


Mum to two... love to craft - terrible at housework !

I got my package fron Fruity Loops - she so spoiled me - and I love it all. Really she was such a great partner - we chatted and got to know each other pretty well - I can't wait for her to recieve her package from me - I always feel bad when someone gets to open thiers first. Well, without futher ado - the loot:

The stocking - so pretty - its made with a fun burgundy corduroy and fleece brim. Fun recipe book - I love it - it has really cool black and white pics with recipes - very old world - fun!!! Some Christmas cookie cutters, a cupcake - which is actually a washcloth and lipbalm - very clever! A itty bitty cupcake lipbalm - one of my new faves. Some scapbooking stickers - love them! Some cupcake stencil decorations - the kiddos will love these. And two cute little candles

Onto the crafted items - a beautiful knitted scarflet - it is so pretty and will be great for our Canadian winters. The cutest ever wine glass charms - they came in the little felt cozy. Potholders - so fun - I love the material and  I really needed a new pair.

Some fun treats - I love sour candy - of course the kiddos polished off the roll of candies already - but the rest are in hiding - LOL

Thanks Loops its been a blast!!!

i got an awesome, AWESOME Stocking package from alteredmommy!!! She really spoiled me Smiley

First, (almost) everything all together:

There was a TON of awesome little things like, Climax candy(haha!), chinese magnets, a xmas bulb pen, a light up crochet hook, chocolate and these awesome little star things! I think i want to make them into brooches, they are so neat!

She also made 4 dove ornaments that I already put on my tree!

A super awesome kitschy rooster Salt and Pepper holder for my kitchen!

The softest, most gorgeous scarf evvvver!

A super crazy awesome sewing necklace that i think might just be to pretty to even use..

and last but definitely not least, a seriously rad day of the dead pink cross! I already hung it up with the rest of my dod skulls and things!

here is a close up of the rad stocking too.. loves it!

I love everything so much alteredmommy, thank you!!! Smiley

Yey, I'm so glad you like everything Maasive Grin 

The cook book is all recipes from the area that Mr Loops and I live here in the UK Cheesy  Having said that mind there are quite a few that we've never heard of!  Hope the neckwarmer helps to keep you toasty during the winter, I made a test one first as I haven't knitted for like 15 years or so, which I've claimed for myself and already tried out whilst Xmas shopping Wink

So excited about receiving my package, hurry up Mr Postman!!

Those star bows are fantastic!  I love that you used sewing notions for them - is there a tute out there for those?

I just make them like regular bows, a little tricky working out the folding but once you get the hang of it, it goes fast.  The tape measure ones are hot glued together and the zipper ones are just seperated zippers that I sewed together;both are cut in strategic lenghts so they point evenly before folding.  I start from the middle making 4 points, then another round of 4 bigger points that go behind inbetween the first points, then so on till they look done.  The middle loop or zipper pull gets put on last.

I'm glad you liked everything DDS, I had a moment of crafty anxiety when I received your giant package....I'm pretty sure I didn't come close to the fabulousness of the quilt you sent me (along with the ton of other stuff!!!) Grin
