Goodness gracious, I've been such a slacker on posting!!  My apologies to Adrienne, especially, who really put together a lovely, lovely package.  But, without further ado, the remaining days!!

Day 12!
And lastly, today a really fun blue jean rag throw!

Day 11!
Snazzy amigurumi pattern book and kit!

Day 10!
Lovely felt stocking, stuffed with hot chocolate (yum!), a cross stitch snowman and some soap.  So fun.  Smiley

Day 9!
Super, super cute warm and fuzzy hat today!  I love it so!  

Day 8!
Yay!  I really love this daily present thing.  Grin  So, today, I got two bars of soap in their own special casing - I'm sure it has a proper name that escapes me, but it's like an exfoliating, scrubby thing over the soap.  And they smell so good!

Day 7!
Really snazzy ornament today!

Day 6!
Oops!  Forgot to post yesterday!  I opened this great set of Christmas coasters.  Smiley  One is sitting under my coffee cup right this very minute.

Day 5!
I opened a great scrubby/wash cloth today!  I'm always making scrubbies for other and rarely take the time to make one for myself, so this was extra special.  Smiley  It has a really great texture for exfoliating.

Day 4!

Today, my present was a really lovely vintage oven mitt.  I love the dot pattern.  Smiley

Day 3!

Heart-shaped ice cube trays!  I love them!  I will likely not use them for ice cubes, but they'll be great for candy molds.  Yay!

Day 2!

A tangerine lotion bar - it smells super yummy.  

Day 1!  YAY!

Lovely, lovely necklace:

Christmas Goodies! My lovely packages from Adrienne.

DAY 11
Today was a gift for my office.  This is super cute and usable.  Just look!!! All three buses are appliqued and are pockets.  I showed an eye glass case in the top bus.  I love the blue fabric as a background and have plans for a wall at wok in my office.  So excited to get school bus themed items!!!!

DAY 10
Love love love my gift today!!!  I am always needing totes and this one is fantastic!  I love the fall colors, the size, the pocket and inside lining!  So sturdy and durable!!! The size is great for projects on the go or stuff I tote to and from work!

A little behind posting, but here goes!!!  Day 9 was the cutest neck roll pillow!  Perfect for lying in bed reading!  I love the colors of the fabric.  This will also serve as a traveling companion when heading to the lake.

Today Margie sent me two towels to attach to my oven.  The color is perfect and I love love love the peace fabric she used for the top.  Their new home my oven door is happy!!!!  I got some of these in the other Christmas swap but those where perfect for my trailer at the lake so I am super excited to have some for the house here.  

My package from Margie contained 2 cute mug rugs or hot pads.  The one with the mug is my favorite, I think because of the color.  The pieced one will have a new home in my den on the desk.  Both will be used as these little guys have become a new favorite thing for me to collect!  Mug Rugs!!!

Todays gift from Margie was a cute sewn bowl!  Margie shared everyone that saw the bowl thought it was a hat!  Duh the flower would be upside down if it was a hat!  This will adorn my desk at work come spring as a candy bowl!!!!!  Margie also sent some cute glittery magnet clothespins adorned with butterflys, they are clipped on the bowl.

Today Margie sent me a much needed plastic bag organizer!  Here it is hanging on it's new home the Pantry door knob.  Rick rack adorns the bottom hole!

Oh my Margie, must be physic how else would she know I can really, really, really, use this label maker. So excited to put it to use!  (Thank You)  and she also sent along a cute sewn zippered pouch.  totally awesome!  I think I will store extra rolls of tape for my new label maker inside, but then again I see so many possible uses for it!  The sewing is fantastic!!!! Just look at the inside lining!!!!

Margie sent me a vintage crocheted doily in my kitchen colors aqua and white.  I love this it made my day!!!!   She also sent 4 bookmarks as I am an avid reader!  I love these my favorite is the yellow one!!!!!

DAY 12
I had so much fun with the clay on the fairy house that I decided to also make a fairy door key holder.  I started with a wood plaque, painted it and applied crackle paint then the top color to get a bark like finish.  I cut the leaves from shades of green clay and after backed antiqued them with gold paint. Glued them to the wood and added silver leaf charms.  The door was adorned with small clay handle and hinges. with a charm added.  I then added the hook and made a felt mushroom keychain!! Added moss to the bottom with glue.

DAY 11
Margie like fairy's so why not send her a fairy house.  I loved making this and how it turned out.  I used a clay pot as the foundation and created a fairy house out of polymer oven bake clay, embellished it with a few seed beads and some moss glued to the rim and now the wee fairies have a new home.  Clock hands for the hindges and a little glass bead for the door knob.

DAY 10
Decided this was as close to a gypsy pillow as I could get!!!!!

Ooops I forgot to take a picture of the item for today!  I purchased a lamp and covered it with the same fabric that I used for the pillow for day 10. I attached the same gems around the entire shade and then added the trim to the bottom of the shade that is around the edge of the pilllow!!!!

This is the ugly item I found at Goodwill!  It screamed gift for Margie when I saw it.  The Pixie Boot is made from ceramic and Marjie like fairy's and such so I knew that this would be perfect for her.  I wanted to make it something useful so I dug around in my supplies and found some cute polka dot pencils.  Love making stuff from felt and decided to make mushroom Pencil toppers to stick to the theme on the pixie boot!

Todays gift to Margie was a hanging lantern candle holder.  I spray painted it purple and then strung beads on wire to give it a gypsy feeling!  Ribbon was added to the top and bottom with glue!

Today I sent Margie a gift to keep her busy and crafty!!!!! Hoping you can have some fun!!!!

Todays gift to Margie was an owl pocket purse in shades of purple!!!!

Todays gift to Margie was a pieced scarf.  Yes I am a hoarder of fabric, you should have seen my craft room after doing 3 Christmas swaps!!!!  Mega mess!!!!

Day 3
For day 3 I sent Margie 6 miniature ceramic painted houses!
 I love making these they are just time consuming.


A fairy calendar and some treats!!!!

Margie's gift today was an owl pincushion!

Gifts to margiej from quaggy her descriptions are on page 2
