I already have a *ton* of presents from superhooker from the fill-a-stocking swap sitting under the tree waiting for Christmas. There's no way I could stand to hold off on opening another package!  Cheesy

I have 1 lonely present to put under the tree (nothing else is wrapped), it's for my husband...

I'm not putting up a tree, so that pretty much justifies why I'd have to open the packages when they get here Cheesy

I just realized that this is the first year I didn't do the Dec. Birthday Swap... weird, it wasn't even on my radar, I have been so distracted with this swap (& STS & personal swapping) and all the stuff on my to do list, I haven't had much time for anything else...

So I opened my stuff and it's AWESOME... of course when I went to get pictures my camera died... SERIOUSLY, that's not a joke, it turned on, I tried to take a picture and it died right then... sooooo I will have pictures tomorrow once it's charged and there is light.  YAY!

I propose that everybody charges their camera RIGHT NOW so they're ready Wink Tongue

My camera is still charging (it's been taking longer than usual lately, I think the battery is about to go...), but I did manage to get my card to read so here's the only picture I managed to take before the camera died (before I cleaned the kitchen)... wrapped presents, dishtowel/hotpad (both things I always need more of, we try not to use papertowels, so we go through dishtowels like crazy), and yummy white choc. covered pretzels (that bag is almost empty, so yes they are good).

I promise to be back tomorrow with pictures of the goodies!  Thanks again partner!  Kiss

Alright Ladies!!!!! Let the show begin!!  Grin Grin Grin Grin

First of all my secret swapper is toooo awesome  Cheesy All of the items were wrapped in pretty rainbow paper (I think she must have caught onto my love of COLOR!  Wink). The first thing I opened were these BEAUTIFULLLLLLLL felted bag and pouch. The bigger one is for my tampons at work hehe, she said she loved my story about how I keep them in an old cracker box and thought I could use this one. The smaller one is for my cell phone and it fits perfectly  Cheesy It should since she stalked me out and looked up the exact measurements to make it haha. I am so smitten with the color combo here, I keep pulling it out and looking at it. And its so soft too. I love them so much! I've never gotten anything felted before.  Grin

Next I pulled out GORGEOUS handspun that's really chunky and soft. Both are Faulkland wool; the one on the left is dyed by lapoli and the one on the right is dyed by my stalker!  Grin So pretty! I'm definitely going to add one to my blanket, but I think I might save the second one to make a really pretty scarf or hat out of.  Grin Grin

The final thing I opened was this really funky bright neckwarmer with an awesome handmade button (I think). It totally fits my style perfectly and I love it. Even the pink fits well with the rest of the colors  Wink

Thank you thank you thank you stalker!  Cheesy
