Sooooo.... it's like close enough to opening time, right? 

My cat thought so! He managed to find a present for him in the pile and scratched it open last night... I had to put it into hiding! But the good news is, I know he'll enjoy it when it IS time to open it!  Grin

I recived today, I posted pics in "my spot" on page 1. Now to wait to open the gifts... it's going to be hard.

Also, that matchbox advent calendar is awesome! What a great idea!

Warning: Pinterest can be addictive...

Got a wonderful package from amazing_784 waiting for me when I got home from visiting relatives.  Mine went out late (stupid me left half the presents at home... Duh) but there should be there tomorrow or Monday.  

Can I peek? Just a little?   I'll let you peek at yours....

Day one (freezer yummies):
These are some delicious homemade peanut butter cups. Someone has been snacking on them and boy are they really yummy!

Day two brings doggie oatmeal cookies! Great minds think alike Smiley my gal was hesitant about tasting her cookie but she ate it within a few min.

Day three brought us some icy weather and all kinds of icicles! I've had this on my pinterest forever and never had a chance to try it.... How hard was it?

Day four:
More ornaments! And these smell so yummy Smiley going to wait until kid gets home to hang them on the tree. Hopefully my puppies won't try to eat them!

Day five thru nine: hopefully they are in order and some pics are taken by the little guy cause he's being a big help to mom while she it's swamped Smiley

Dish cloth and pear soap.  All the pears were eaten by the squirrels of amazing's tree so no pear jelly Sad but I love the wash cloth!

Covered notebooks! I so needed one for clay and this is just perfect!  And I know someone else had this problem so I wanted to share for the humor.... Somehow, someone....we won't mention who....puppy.... Must have gone potty next to the tree. Lucky for me the cloth wrapping absorbed most of it and only one book got damp and it was a very small bit of it!

2 bags

Upcycled sweater leg warmers

Pin cushion and sewing wallet
Rest of days!

Poppet building set! Has even the button shank thingies that I couldn't find at my local Joann! Really awesome fabric :-D

Bag from the rest of the recycled sweater! This it's the first time in life I might match! Love my bags!

WOW WOW WOW a sweater! Yes it fits! WOW and it's warm! WOW I love my sweater!

If a sweater wasn't amazing enough, she also gave my son his own 25th day present! A bag full of angry birds are trying to fly around my house! WOW thank you so much amazing_784!

I suppose you can open day one.  I hope it made it there intact.  If not, oh well, it'll still be good!
Oh, and MY SPOT!
Edit: Got my box via UPS today!

Found the instructions...I opened the box upside down!  Day 1 was for my puppies, so I was allowed to open now.  Homemade dog treats!  Peanut butter pumpkin.  The pic is giving me fits, so I'll post it later.
Last night we decorated our Christmas tree, and PJ told me to open day 2.  Chocolate chip cookies and chocolate bar from Trader Joe's!  My hubby opened everythinghe liked the PB&J chocolate, and I has the caramel bar.  The dark chocolate and most of the cookies are still waiting to be nommed.
Day 3: cinnamon goat milk soap!

Day 4: sock yarn.  I need more socks!

Day 5: raku buttons.  I'd put on my questionnaire that I never have enough zippers, but PJ asked me if buttons were good enough.  Yeah, I think so!  Now I have to figure out a new knitting project, and which side of these buttons to use since they are double sided!

Day 6: raku and beaded ornaments.  The snowman and Christmas tree are clay and a friend of PJs made the beaded ornament.

Day 7: pashmina shawls.  I'm slowly growing my shawl collection.

Day 8: reusable "paper" towels!

Day 9: little storage jars.  One decorated with roses, the other 2 plain.

Day 10: upcycled denim placemats.  PJ wasn't sure if they would match my kitchen; they are blue, red and yellow.  My kitchen is painted yellow, with red countertops and blue plates!  (And a gratuitous puppy shot!)

Day 11: woodburning kit

Christmas day: charcoal drawing of my dogs, Emma and Job.  "Puppy love"

I know its still over a week before we can even open, but I'm getting bummed. I think my package is hitting a lot of snow, so it wasn't here on it's scheduled delivery date, nor will it be for a few days. =( I'm very impatient.

What?!  Nooooo!  I hope it arrives soon!

Box one did make it to the freezer, Amazing....all is well Smiley

So, if I reset my phone to say it's opening day, can I start now?   Actually, I'm trying to get my tree up this weekend and get my goodies under the tree cause they would look so much better than in the box.  Just have to hope that some curious doggies don't try and investigate

hey, that's between you and your god.  and apparently your dog as well.   Wink

I opened my Day 1 and Day 2 (as instructed - I promise they said to open early!!!)  Grin

Day 1 - a treat for my pups!!  Actually two treats - a cannoli and a breath bone EACH!! 

Day 2 - a treat for my husband and me!  Seriously, I was going to wait and share with him but after I tried a bite, I couldn't put this stuff down.  It's like chocolate crack.  So, ummm, here's the bag...  Roll Eyes

I couldn't take a picture of the whole shebang since it remains at my parents' house but our wrapping was almost identical except that onyxnox made the most AMAZING tags.  I already know where I want to string a little banner with them on it across the window in our new apartment!  YAY!!!

Swapping up a storm here!  Totally open to personal swaps - I am always in need of awesome stuff Wink
