I don't know if I've ever been the first to post in a gallery... this is so exciting! I swear I was told to open early (it was heavily implied that there were delicious goodies that were best enjoyed "fresh"!)

Here's everything I pulled out of the box! The stocking is still full in this picture... I feel terribly spoiled. On the left, you can see the reversible message board (with the poinsettia print), under that is a chalkboard flag banner, and above that is something I never knew I needed but totally do: it goes under your foot pedal for your sewing machine to keep it from dancing all over the place! To the right of the stocking, we have socks (I'm actually wear the fuzzy red/black ones right now) and some candy (which I've never seen before but very excited to try) and a fabric insert thing for tote bags so there are little pockets for little things!!!

The little gifts wrapped like big candies were a spice jar with a baggie of gummi bears crammed inside (yum!) and a tube of Godiva chocolates (another yum!).

Then I emptied the stocking!!! The orange-y thing on the left is for putting on the dashboard to set your phone on (which means I need to dust my dashboard!). There are baggies of mini candy canes drizzled with chocolate, all of my favorite candies, coasters/mug rugs in two fun prints, a headband and lip balm clip in match black and white prints (with watermelon lip balm in the latter!), some cocoa mixes (it was 72 degrees today so I think I'll wait a few more days before indulging in those) and in the light blue "&" package there's a gooey marshmallow chocolate thing that looks amazing!!!

I just really love this packaging job!!! (I stop at Taco Bell when I have the work shift that ends at 9pm so the bags will keep reminding me of this for weeks to come!) And inside, I found...

They were hard to get a photo of, sorry. The red thing is a bowl cover but it can also be flipped over to make a bowl itself! (The attached note suggests munchies on the couch, and I'm inclined to agree!) AND AND AND... A sewing mat / sewing machine cover!!! I wanted to take an action shot of it but my sewing machine is buried behind many storage boxes right now and won't be pulled out until the weekend.

I love everything so much JS, thank you!!!!! And getting to open so early has put my butt in gear to work on JS's package!!! (That, and NaNoWriMo is finally over.  Grin )

Alexampersandra, you are very welcome and I'm tickled that you like your pressies!  It was fun putting it all together for you.  There are two "&" stamps that I thought would make cute earrings, but I couldn't get the & off of the plastic holder piece, in one piece lol.  Karma dictated that you would put them to the best use for your needs.  There was a mention of a banner for your office door - hence the chalkboard bunting, which can be personalized with the theme of the week.  (We jotted trivia questions on ours, with sources/hints on the reverse side.)  I love the magnet on the spice jar's bottom.   DH teases about "shopping at Taco Bell for gift wrap."  Stalking you was a blast and it's great to know you Smiley

Looking forward to receiving your stocking - I know it will be awesome!

I love that sewing machine cover! I have a basic plastic one that came with my machine, but now I want a beautiful fabric one instead!

I received a package from edelC in Ireland in like 4 days, which is amazing to me. Choc full of goodies!! Prepare for many pictures - we were both doing a 'small' size swap, but did some spoiling on top of that.  Cheesy

As exhibited here by the fact that she made TWO stockings, one for me and one for my partner! We'll be using them to fill for each other this year. I adore both of them!

Everything inside wrapped up all prettily, and then unwrapped:

A tiny string of lights and some cute mushrooms:

Tasty treats, with kinder eggs, woo!

A big totoro throw pillowcase and a cute zippered pouch (you nailed it with my themes Edel):

Great texture on the pouch!

A love prayer flag! So sweet.

This entrancing crackled CD clock (it's hard to photograph something so shiny) - my partner loves it, so it may end up in the bedroom. But I'm thinking of stealing it for by my craft desk.

Gorgeous tree of life pendant! Did I mention I was spoiled??

Thank you so much edelC for a wonderful package!  Kiss Even the shipping box was appreciated.
