I think that last year my partner and I shipped our stockings empty, and just filled around it.

Ohhhhhhh! I like the sound of that Wink


What if I fill the stocking with what HAS to wait to be opened on Christmas morning?  And the rest you can open right away? Oh, wait.....we know how you are about waiting to open packages Wink

LOL! I am the WORST about opening packages. I don't think I've had a surprise at Christmas in years. Now, I'm pretty good at guessing with out unwrapping first. My mom just gives me cash or lets me pick out my own now.

If you fill a stocking with stuff for me to wait to open, I will give it to my brother (that's what I did last year). He's a stickler for surprises. You could put a present in an unsealed paper bag and he won't peek!

I think last year i may have stuffied mine, but i'm not sure. This year though i totally have some idea that may not be able to be stuffed in a stocking. I'm not really a small crafts kinda person XD.

I also opened the day i got the package too XD. I am horrible with surprises and gifts. I don't want to have to wait to open my gifts and since no one else around got them i told myself i would feel bad if i saved them to open around everyone else because it would be bad mannered to do that. Theres no favoritism ( at least with numbers of gifts) in my family.

I have a ton of wonderful things planned for this swap! Just gotta finish up another first

I'm in the midst of a stress induced meltdown. I have two work projects and my Birthday party this weekend and two swaps to finish up so I cannot fit in jotting down ideas for my stocking till next week (even though I already have 5 ideas floating around my head). I like the idea of including something to be opened on Christmas though. I didn't do that last year and I wish I had. In my family we do all the gift giving on Christmas morning so maybe having something to open Christmas Eve would be nice. Alright, back to work  Sad. Have a good weekend everybody!!!

Yeah I hope everything does not need to fit in the stocking as some of the things I am making will not fit into one....Can someone clarify that for us kiddies!? If it all has to fit I will need to revamp my ideas...thanks!!!

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all...oh you can hear me!  I get really excited and fired up on these swaps.  So much so, I painted the drawer fronts in kitchen bright colors because of the Mexican Kitsch swap, It was totally the swap's fault, Mr. Landlord!  This one may cause me to construct a faux fireplace!  I do have a big piece of plywood I could paint to look like brick.  Maybe I should concentrate of working on the stocking first?

Ummmm... yeah. There is no way all the stuff I'm making is going to fit into the stocking. Smiley The stocking would have to be the size of ... well, let's just say it won't fit.

By the way, stocking... I have every idea for all the other stuff, but I should probably really get to thinking about the stocking!! That is the title of the swap, after all!  Roll Eyes
