Yay, babalina58! I am glad you like. Grin I laughed when I saw you post pics of your wrapped presents earlier in the thread because I recognized that paper! Cheesy When I saw that you had the original of that Tree on your "top crafts made by other people" I knew I had to come up with a way to reclicate it for you. And I did! Silver wire all the way... No nasty greenies. Wink I hope you enjoy wearing it and the earrings. And Happy Holidays! Grin

I received a lovely secret santa package! Smiley

(sorry, bad camera phone, no flash)

My partner was Jennifer (chibilightangel) and she spoiled me to the core. I don't even remember what I had on my wishlist except a Twilight-themed charm bracelet. She indulged my ridiculous request and nailed my style, head-on!


Bracelet and Earrings set, in the box

Awesome math clock I've had on my wishlist forever!

(from ThinkGeek)

Inchies + Scrabble-type words = Art Smiley I will hang this in my dining room!

Closeup of the bracelet, in **action** Smiley I won't be taking it off for awhile...The detail is amazing. There are leaves, hearts, flowers, a key(i love keys!!!!) and it's gorgeous shades of pink and purple (my favorite!). Seriously, Jen, you outdid yourself.

And what will now serve me as a gratitude journal. Things I am thankful for: #1. Chibilightangel! Cheesy

Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you. As predicted, now that I received such a wonderful package, I feel like my package I sent out was not that good. I am experiencing package inferiority. I hope my partner likes it. I haven't seen her post yet!

That math clock is a happy, happy thing indeed!

*blinks*  *blinks*  Oh my holy wow!  That Celtic lapghan is GORGEOUS!!!!!!  I want it.  In emerald green.  Now.  Soooooo pretty!

Trigger finger mittens!?!?!?  I think any woman who owns trigger finger mittens gets some instant cred. Wink

This is turning into one of the most unique galleries I've seen on craftster!  The randomness and prettiness and quirkiness are so great!

eee!  my secret Santa is sg1psychopath!!!! wooo! 
She made me things off my list!  They are exactly the right colors.  And will match my dining set perfectly!

what I see when I open the box (minus the card Wink )

the "everything"  a Table runner, placemats, cloth napkins with napkin holders, dark chocolates (mmmmm dark chocolate  Grin ), some pretty candles and a monster.

Table runner and a placemat and a napkin in action with my wonderful model.

the reverse side (sorry the pics sideways.... Undecided)  but its the spanky side, so it will be used for fancier parties Smiley  I like that I can use it two ways  (and yes it needs to be pressed... once I go to use it, it will be Smiley)

and the monster, modeled by my 4.5 year old Smiley  Shortly after this pic was taken all sorts of hillarity insued, when the cat got a hold of it ..... chasing and diving for the monster... to much fun!   

It is a wonderful package and I love it!!  We are the only people who ever invite people over for diner parties, because I think its fun to entertain.  So all this will be used often! 

thank you thank you thank you!!!

ETA: the monster totally reminds me of the whatsit my grandma had once upon a time... Which looks pretty much exactly like him, only hers was a bit smaller.  I love him Smiley

i have pictures!

opened box

the presents wrapped up nice

some adorable lil ornaments!  can't wait to put them on the tree.

a really nice cell phone cozy.  i love the color.

yummy.  there goes any hope of losing weight over winter break.  haha.

a gorgeous wood covered journal.  i'll start using it as soon as i fill up my current one.

the pretty card.

i love the fabric bags a couple of the presents were in.  they're so pretty!  and reusable, which is always nice.  my secret santa didn't tell me who she was! judging by the leather and wood i'm guessing pinokeeo.   but i could be wrong.  to whoever my secret santa was:  thank you very much!  it was a great package!   Smiley

 jungianwanderer - Im so glad you like everything!  And froggie made it in one piece?  I was worried about him.  You're welcom.

I am having camera software and computer problems.  I think I have it about fixed.  This is the first Ive been able to get on here since 8 this morning because it is moving like molasses.  I will try to get photos on tonight. 

Minusxl3lindfold was my Secret Santa.  Thank you so much sweetie!  You did a beautiful job.  Wait to you see the little gnome/elf people she made for me off of my wist.  Goodness, they are AMAZING!  I will get photos up ASAP!

My secret santa was justforme (someone I've never swapped with before!) and she sent me a fantastic package.  My hubby and I sat on the bed this morning while I opened the package and I told him it felt just like Christmas  Grin

The first thing I opened was this:


now you may wonder why she sent a bottle of hotsauce, well, my husband collects them and I said the purchased item could be one for him.  His comment was 'why do people keep sending you items for me in swaps' and I said because I ask for them.

Then I opened this:


a stain glass tulip, one of my top 5 wishes for this swap and something I've been wanting for a long time.

Here's an action shot, not the greatest lighting since it was very foggy today and, of course, taken against all our snow but I wanted to show it off with light behind it:


Then I opened the last package and found 4 wonderfully made, beautiful tulip placements, again off my top 5 list for this swap:


THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE ITEMS, THEY ARE ALL APPRECIATED!!  It was worth waiting a month to open!
