That is so helpful. I can't get my computer online right now but when I get on here to post pics tomorrow I'll be sure to try it out. Thanks so much!

I'm back after a long hiatus. Not doing any big swaps right now but feel free to message me for small ones and supply exchanges. I have a bunch of fabric that I'd like to swap for different supplies! 

Also, I have a pintrest now Smiley

You are so welcome thedreamer!!!!!  I'm glad the color scheme was on.  And I never thought about it, but yes, the bag would be reversible, I supose it depends on your mood, either way I'm glad it's the right size, I worried it would be a bit on the big size......  The stars can be pot holders, or wash cloths, or since you crochet, you can stick them in a blanket, I thought it didn't much matter, but I felt everyone needed those for christmas!  The little penguin (yes needle felted) made it into the box with tears from my 4year old.  He wanted it so badly!  But of course I made him another one.  And I'm glad you like the charms, nothing wrong with a few supplies, hope youcan use them in some jewlery!

My brother saw all the goodies I got today and got rather jealous, lol...he too tried stealing the penguin, but nope, it's sitting with all my other penguins in my penguin collection where it belongs  Cheesy And one of the stars is actually being a coaster right now on my desk, but I like the idea about the blanket, so I'll definitely see what I can do about that with the other star.  If you can tell, I'm still a bit excited over getting early Christmas presents! 

Too many packages to comment on (I came home to 5+ pages after one day of shopping!) but just know that I'm going wist-insane with all the amazing goodies in here Wink

Wow.... was I spoiled... not only did I receive this wonderful blue box...

but I also received an extra in the mail a few days later....

I opened the extra envelope first and found this wonderful little guy:

A group shot:

then I opened this tiny, tiny package to find the smallest dice I have ever seen....  they are approximately 1/8" square.

the next package was this fascinating "instruction book":

followed by something I really needed, a new pincushion:

I love, love, love elephants and this one is just adorable..... I really will hate putting pins in him Roll Eyes Wink Wink

and lastly something from my specific list, a body pillow cover....  front:


To whomever my Secret Santa is, THANK YOU soooooo much!  I love everything!!!!

Babalina! you are AWESOME!!!
First the Box--sitting there tantalizing me for over a week

The opening--Fuller than I thought it would! & the awesome card signed by none other than "BABALINA"

Great things come from small package & they smell so WONDERFUL--ok I started opening one before DH stopped me "Photos hun!"

then 1 lil Box, a GORGOUS bead & Christmas charms bracelete. Bad photo but the Santas' face reminds me of a Harliquin characture & a lil wreath & lil stocking.

HANDMADE SOAPS!!!! Honey Walnut & Lavender! I am so pleased!

Then next package

Hook needle roll! I've been wanting one of these FOREVER! & she even made it w/ Celtic Pattern!!!!

The flip side is a pretty brown polka dot & white tie ribbon (pardon the foot shot)

And the Suprise final Pckage

SATIN PJ's! OMG! they are wonderful!

I was so Spolit! This is the Bestest Santa Package EVER--
Thank You Monica you made the experience WONDERFUL

Woo hoo! I am so happy because Crazy4Bags sent me the sweetest package. She did a super job of matching my tastes and wishes.

These photos are bad -- Crazy4Bags, please post better pics if you have them.

First, all the goodies:

In the background is a nice big piece of Christmas fabric that she used to cushion everything. I didn't measure, but it's about a yard and a half. I will definitely be using it for a tree skirt I'm going to make for next Christmas.

There is a yummy pair of flip-top mittens -- oh gosh, I've been wanting these! Then a set of three things she made for inside my purse,  and a big mug with a leafy design that says "Celebrate every day to the fullest" around the inside.

Then a jewelry box straight from my wist. (Closeup to follow)

AND a sweet apple scented candle AND cute little Christmas rubber ducky for my duck collection. My dog made a valiant effort to claim the duck, but I prevailed.

Closeup of the cosmetic bag, tissue holder, and checkbook cover made exactly to my wishes. Solid brown outside and pretty plaid taffeta linings:

Here's the jewelry box she fashioned, just like the one in my wist. This is adorable!

Action shot of the mittens:

They're purchased from a local business. So beautiful, lined, and with a button to anchor the flip top.

I am definitely spoiled. Wearing a huge smile today! Thank you so much, Crazy4Bags! I love everything.

Everyone received wonderful items. Looking forward to next Christmas to do it again.

Stellato_escuro went first by the state you were from, return address, which weeded out all but 7 crafters. Then went by crafts previously done. I need to say again how much I love everything,

When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life so that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice. -Indian saying.
