And another example of what a bad picture taker I am. At least you can see the cowl in this one. I love how soft this is. My dd loved it too. She said it made her 'fancy' and my secret santa musta been psychic bc it matches her coat!!

Thanks to all my Santa's. This swap was so fun!

Finally, photos of the rest of my gifts!!

First, a tea package from kittykill!


TWO tea strainers (a cat with a big fish, and a whale), plus a delectable assortment of tea. I'll be a happy, tea-sipping camper for quite some time this winter.  Grin I'm pretty giddy about the card, too. I received this right before I left on my trip, but I was too sick to function.  Tongue

Then I got home, and there were three packages waiting, plus UTM's holiday card! I was only expecting one!

First, from swap superstar and co-organizer Smeddley, I got a new spindle and a bag of fire-starters!

I'm going to use the living daylights outta all this.  Cheesy

Next, LadybugsAndBumblebees sent a bunch of goodies, with the highlight being ATCs!
[
Two ornaments (yes, I did lick the candy cane to make sure it wasn't a Twizzler. It is, in fact, plastic.  Cheesy), winter tissue pack (why do I never buy these for myself? So necessary!), and squishy dog card!

And finally, framed artwork and candy from fluffypants!


Check out this dapper guy! He looks like a Maurice to me. Pardon the glare; if you need a cleaner pic, fluffypants, I can de-frame it and re-photograph.


Thanks to everyone! Being the ringmaster of this covert circus is already such fun, and you all made it even better!  Kiss

Ohh the Moomins! *love*

THCchic, you and I must have the same sort of camera, ha! Your pics are not that bad, I can tell what it is and that it's cute Wink.

Calluna, those tea strainers are too cute. We have one that's a wee man who looks as though he's relaxing in a steaming cup of tea. So funny!
One of these days I'll get and use a drop spindle. We tried them on a trip this summer and it wasn't difficult to manage, just slow to make an appreciable amount of yarn. A labour of love.

LB&BB sends the nicest parcels of love, doesn't she? Smiley

LOVE that giraffe! It's a family animal (there's a story there, lol).

Guys, you may have guessed that I am bubbles. Not of course "the other bubbles" or "not that bubbles" lol. I'm waiting to hear who those people are, and the rest that are still a mystery, lol. I hope you'll all spill!
I made a little something for everybody on the list when I was feeling poorly and stuck at home, it just sort of happened and it was really, really fun. I'm going to post all my projects now. I hope you all liked your surprises, I love all you people so much. XO

Things I made, if'n ya'll's curious-

Birds nest bracelets for jillybeans
(I really liked making those and see a lot more in my future!)

Wish bracelets and hat for underthemountain
(I did make extra Wish Bracelets and have been abandoning them about!)

Tea, beads, and wax melts for kittykill
(Sorry it was a little package, but hopefully fun?)

Crochet Moomin for fluffypants
(Oh my goodness, I did not think that thing was going to be that big!  I tried four times to get the pendant to be bubble-free, and then gave up, sorry!)

Ornament assortment for craftylittlemonkey
(Most were from kits, so I can't claim any great ideas in them!)

Bag and crochet mouse for ladybugsandbumblebees
(I'm glad you like the bag, and I adore that mouse pattern - he's the second, and not the last I'll make!)

Grammar hoop for luckdragon
(When I saw a hoop I'd made pinned, I had to go for it - it's one I really like and will one day make for myself!)

Bunting for alwaysinmyroom
(I am never making bunting again, man, did that fight me, but I was fairly pleased with how it turned out!)

Cowl for thehappycrochetchic
(Already made a second one of those for my mom for a Christmas present, I love the easy pattern with the boucle!)

And, obviously, firestarters and a drop spindle for calluna
(The firestarters are possibly the ugliest things I've ever sent anyone, but hopefully they work!)

I wish I could have done more, but I just ran out of time...  :/

There *cough* might have been a "MOAR bubbles" too, whose recipient didn't mention it. 

Some of us may still be waiting on packages, tho, I think?

Aha! Smeddley you sneaky thing you, you mailed from a different address than the one I've sent to in a previous swap. Tricky!

AIMR, I drink a combo lavender and chamomile tea and also one called Cup of Calm when needed. They seem to help. If you want the name brand just PM me.

Smeddley!!  I guessed from your writing that it was you who made the bunting...it is so nicely sewn and I will leave it up for a few more weeks to enjoy!

Thank you so much for the lovely wish bracelets Smeddley.  I bet the ones you are abandoning are loved!  I will be donating your batch in the coming year to the Children's Inn at NIH!  Smiley  You still need to send me your photo!!!   Pretty please.  I want to give you credit on our website.  Smiley
