OOH! I just found another pen with Santa on it in my living room. Did it come from my stocking? It may have, and seeing as I cannot think of any other place it came from I am going to say it did. Wanna give credit for that too, I guess. The boy must have stolen it before I unpacked the box. Wonder what else he got? I may need to be on the lookout.

Yup Santa came from the stocking....I kept picking things up for you if they had purple or red..heheh.  I think the girl Monkey matches your daughter quite nicely!!!  I figured your son was old enough to know that he shouldn't chew buttons.  hehehe

haha!  It feels pretty weird not to be crafting for freestyle anymore.  I think of her every time I see a cute penguin.  My husband is getting tired of hearing, "Oh!  I wish I would have seen that 2 weeks ago!  freestyle would love that!!"

Life seems so empty now... Grin  Wink

I feel you... as I was cleaning up my crafting crap (whenever I finish another swap, I clean it all up so that I can make a new mess) I found something I forgot to send to onegroovyday. So... maybe she'll get a little post-Christmas surprise.

Here's my awesomeness from Melvinator!

Cute little box that is painted and a magnetic notepad, I needed a new one, my old one lost its magnet!



Box open...full of fun marble magents made with really strong magnets!



Loose tea goodness! A great mug, a decorated tea strainer, and some loose tea (Cherry something? I am brewing some up right now!) Also some cute decorated Christmas ornaments, and some crochet stitch markers. Or zipper pulls I suppose, but I'm gonna use them as stitch markers!



Super cute penguin hand towels! I really needed some new ones too! Along with a matching penguin ornament, some cute icicle ornaments, and snowman salt and pepper shakers!



My awesome stocking! I love the button detail and the fabric is really fun and rich feeling



An advent calendar! I wanted to make her one but couldn't think of a good method, so sent a store bought one. This one is way better, she hand painted each day and it's so cute! I already had to take it away from my nephews, apparently I'm a big meanie because I don't like when they break my stuff.



And my amazing tree skirt! This gave her sewing machine fits but I'm glad she powered through! I love it and look forward to using it for years to come!



Cute covered button detail!



She also sent a really cute wreath made out of ornaments that the post office beat up a bit. None of the balls broke, so I just need to glue it back together. Yay, an excuse to play with the glue gun! I'll post pics when I get it patched up!

Thanks Melvinator!  Grin

Awesome package!  That tree skirt is gorgeous.  And the advent calendar is really cool, too.  And the box looks like Tennessee red cedar.  Beautiful.

I'm with you! I feel kinda..... lost crafting wise.

Also, Melvinator, I LOVE that tree skirt... I have been paying particular attention to them, as my dog just ate a hole through my cheapy old one that came with the tree (Tongue)

Now I have to make a new one *snaps fingers* Oh darn!

I need a new tree skirt too, ours is a cheapo we got with the tree. But I'm too worn out from making that one to make one for myself!

I am really happy with how it turned out in the end, but boy was it a pain.

I'm glad you like it MareMare! And thanks for the props guys!

(pinokeeo, I am pretty sure the box is some kind of cedar...it smelled like it! I lovelovelove the smell of cedar Cheesy )
