Oooooooooh - admiring the pics so far - loving the absolute plethora of wrapped goodies.  

Half the fun is the anticipation - isn't it?

Love that matchbox advent - LOVE it!

Rockmygypsysoul - I hope your pups enjoyed the snacks and apparently you enjoyed yours too!  Did you at least share with the hubs?  I was going to send a couple of their Sweet Georgia Browns (I think that is what they are called) - they are Purdy's versions of Turtles, and soooooooooooooooo good - but then I saw that you did not like other nuts, so DH and I had them, and I got the Haystacks instead - that I had to hide, because DH loves chocolate and almonds and he gets all miffy when I get treats like that for my swaps Smiley

Received from sweety28303 today - looks awesome and takes up the whole table!

Today is day 1, right? I keep looking at the calendar and second guessing myself. And I probably put the wrong dates on everything I sent too. No idea. Anyway, my partner sent gold ornaments which I've already added to our black and gold tree!

Obligatory tree shot:

Day 2 is this fox - LOVE him! Thanks, Jolene!!

Day 3 is a pretty Christmas tin of goodies - mmmm peach rings. Smiley

Day 4 is a fabric hoopla - like this a lot. Perfect addition to the collection. Smiley

Day 5 are two huge lotions with the. best. scents.

Day 6 is a jar of chocolate and some little snack bowls with...PENGUINS!

Day 7 is an Alice in Wonderland charm bracelet!!! I have wanted one of these forever and this one is perfect!!! Also this great framed crochet piece is already on my wall - love it!! My partner confirmed that the framed crochet piece can also be an earring holder - very cool. The wall it is on is in a room where that can easily happen. Smiley

Day 8 is a whole button set and 2 great yarns. I've started a small collection of yarns for when I get to some weaving projects and a couple small crochet projects I haven't had time for yet. I don't think I told my partner that, but these are wonderful additions.

She also asked me to post her day 8 so here it is: an apron to match day 7.

Day 9 is a black and gold scarf - LOVE IT!

Day 10 - Matching hat!! I love these so much. I am terrible at crochet so these are things I could never make for myself. Thank you, Jolene.

Day 11 is this awesome shrug/cape - I don't know the word but I love these. It is always so cold at my office that I wear one everyday at my desk and now I have this gorgeous crocheted one. This must have taken forever. !!!!!!

I have to break the rules and post day 12 a smidge early as I won't have time to do it for a few days. My partner also had asked that I post day 12 for her, but hopefully she won't see until tomorrow. Smiley

Day 12 from my partner is SO AWESOME! Jolene - everything you sent was perfect and I thank you much for being such a good partner. I cannot tell you how surprised and excited I am that day 12 is a blanket!! The crocheting is wonderful and it matches our living room. Thank you so so much!!

Day 12 that I sent is an acrylic painting of some of the Disney villains.

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.

Hoped they liked them, I had trouble getting them into the container because mine went nuts over them and they are counter height! Then my son decided he had to test them out and loved them to so it became a three treat hand out....one for the kid and two for the puppies Smiley

We *ahem* checked on present one in the freezer.... Homemade peanut butter cups! Have to get a pic before they all disappear!

I, PJ, am an impatient 12 day swapper. It's been 8 hours since I last peaked at my packages.

The only thing saving me is I still have not put my Christmas tree up, so the box is still hidden out of site, but not out of mind!   It has been easy but hopes for the tree to be decorated are for this weeek, I have missed getting it done the past two weekends and over Thanksgiving break, Life has been busy!
