One more day! I'm definitely itching to get to crafting an awesome stocking Smiley

And all the Godiva talk reminds me of when my family went to the mall for back-to-school shopping and the Godiva store was having its grand opening... my aunt thought the chocolate-covered strawberries were free samples and ate four of them! The lady was like, "that'll be $28 please!" Roll Eyes We still tease her about it 15 years later!

I always buy all of my disposable Christmas wrapping at the Dollar Tree. I refuse to spend those exorbitant prices at Target or even WalMart.

I've been making little things for the past couple of days just to get my creativity rolling for this swap. Cheesy

I get most of mine at the dollar store or Family Dollar.  I get lots of cute cartoon ones like Hello Kitty, Dora, Spongebob and things like that.  It's thinner paper, but really, the kids just rip it up anyhow. Cheesy

OK, my group is matched, sending sevsonlygirl the listing and your partners info is coming your way very shortly. If at first you think you are not matched, read the questionnaire again.

One thing you will find is that you never know what you may learn from your partner. PM me with any problems. I am here to listen, and really want all of your to RESPECT your partners likes dislikes.

I actually love the group I was given, as you are all so diverse, and please, no more chocolate talk. I'm dying here. Cool

I have a split personality, because you guys crack me up.  AND The best day I ever had was TODAY!

I think my fabric addiction has transcended to wrapping paper.  I don't have barrels of it, but I LOVE nice wrapping paper - and I hate that the corners rip when I use the thin stuff!  Wrapping presents is always kind ofa ritual for me and I love tying beautiful bows too!  (My sister and I have a joke about this because she always buys the stick on bows and I give her a hard time about it.)  I think I also got this from my mom who would stay up late at night the days before Christmas in her "workshop"/spare bedroom, wrapping and tying away! Smiley

I've got a new website! www.thisbirdsabsurd.com and I'm still on Etsy www.thisbirdsabsurd.etsy.com

Just a warning I am THE WORLD"S WORST GIFT WRAPPER. Officially. I hate doing it and I'm terrible at it. So whoever my partner is...be warned the onyl way anything will be wrapped decently is if I con my sister into doing it. Its seriously a HUGE running joke amongst my friends andfamily. I'm SUPER terrible at it. My hubby won't even let me wrap the Santa presents because he says even our 1 1/2 year old would recognize my horrendous wrapping.

I'm not using paper for wrapping.  I'm using fabric bags! they're easy to make. plus, its like another little gift.

I'm excited for partners too.

i haven't used a single piece of gift wrap in 4 years. i made a whack ton of reusable bags and just keep supplementing my xmas fabric stash during january ...

most of my stockings stuffer are not wrapped. and i doubt i will wrap everything for this swap.  unless my partner wants some wrapped separate for the 25th...  Cheesy
