I also received from TroubleT! I love it all! Also, this lady totally spoiled me.....

First up is all the crafted items: an emergency clutch (SO CLEVER!), an infinity scarf, an embroidery of my favorite childhood book, and a Marauders shirt!

Next is a picture of all the extras.....

And.... the stocking!

Thanks again, TroubleT! I love it all sooo much!

I apologize in advance for the obscene use of pictures, but it was totally necessary.  Everyone get your index fingers ready to start clicking, I am about to show you the AMAAAAZING package I received from Kaz814.  She spoiled me, and my girls rotten!!  Sorry about this first shot with poor lighting, I was too excited and just opened everything where it was.  Each item was beautifully wrapped, some I didn't even want to open, I loved the paper so much Roll Eyes 

These are the gifts that she sent to Amelia, and Amelia LOVED everything!  There was everything she would need to do her nails, polishes, polish remover, pads, files, and a manicure set She even started stenciling her nails last night.  There was also a very pretty lip gloss.

Nail stencil kit=AWESOMENESS 

Little mini punches to make more stencils

Sign for Bella

Group shot of my opened goodness

Includes recipes for Butterbeer, Pumpkin Juice, and Rockcakes among others!

Cool HP word magnets

Some paint markers

Hair goodies, that the girls and I will all use

Ornaments, doesn't the snitch look like it's going to fly right at you!   They are all wonderful!

These great pencils that said things like
"Goodbye. I'm off to join the circus."
"Live imperfectly with great delight."
and "Life is tough.  I recommend getting a manicure and a really cute helmet."

Some delish shortbread

Snitch measuring tape

Awesome Lily Pulitzer cup

It speaks for itself

Stocking, the most comfie, cute slippers and some cutie Christmas socks

Seriously, they fit like a glove!

This is going on the outside of my craft room!

Look at this paper!  I love it!  I didn't want to tear it, we opened the present very carefully so that we could reuse the paper...yes I am that bad!  I reuse all tissue paper and gift bags as well.

Thanks again Kaz, everything was wonderful!

Great packages. Had to pin the slippers.  Wink

I would love to swap for things kids could do in the car on a long car trip (3 girls ages 5-12). I can knit, crochet or trade yarn.

Yay!! I am so glad that you liked everything!!  I am especially thrilled that you liked your stocking!! It is covered in fabric and I used the shiny modpodge.  I also recovered all the exposed chrome with new chrome tape to make it as shiny as possible for you:) not to mention scrubbing put the old lady makeup smell that permeated it. Lol!  Everyone's packages are beautiful!!  Can someone please make a craftster app?  Being stuck browsing craftster on your phone is a pain!!

My package arrived from RedMenace yesterday and I literally had to fight off my children from the package so that I could snap a couple of pictures! Here's the shot of everything together:

There was a fun, elf shoe shaped stocking (it's currently hanging on my bedroom door knob) filled fantastic goodies! A knitted headband (in Coraline inspired colors), fun pins (a Hello Kitty one for my daughter and a gorgeous flower for myself), an awesome Skittles zippered pouch, button necklace and picture for my sewing room, a uber fabulous stripe scarf (I can't wait to wear it!) and lots of awesome extras including a disco ball lip balm (it's even glittered inside), double thick socks (I am currently wearing them), lots of fun stickers, a Boston Pride magnet, a fabulous sock monkey coin purse, quote sticky notes, and deco masking tape. We love it!

Most of the items have made their way into everybody's room but here's a shot of the button necklace and painting:

Thank you so much for the fun package!

Miss Barbara....I completely understand...lol

Its almost as hard waiting for my partner to post pictures as it is to wait for my stocking!  I've been hitting up the mailbox 2 times a day, just incase I miss it.  Grin

I think if my partner doesn't post pics before monday...then I will.  Hope she doesn't mind.


I am always up for a personal swap!
