As Sheldon Cooper would say:  "That's MY spot!"  Grin

Because the items BigBangMomma sent are for my DH, DS, and DDs to be opened on Xmas day, I can't post daily photos of the gifts.  What I am going to do, is post a photo each day of what I can already, so you get an idea of it, and then on Xmas, I'll post what was in the packages.  Here goes:


This is what came in the mail, and it took all my strength to not take it all out till we had our tree up, so I could put them underneath!


Here's another photo, this one of what she sent me (well, the outside anyway!):

Tomorrow I'll post what's inside!   Grin


Unfortunately, chaos has hit our house HARD for the past two-three weeks, and I wasn't able to post any photos till now of what BigBangMomma had sent.  She has been so understanding and I am so greatful for that!  She and I are becoming great friends too, so that's another gift!  Cheesy

Here's the photos from what she sent us, most of them opened on Xmas, all modeled with the recipients.  Grin  Here goes:

BBM made fabulous ornaments for each of us!  Mine had a ladybug and a bumblebee on it, of course!  Wink


BBM sent my younger DD art supplies, which included several blank canvases.  As you can see, she has already put them to use and has another one drying on the table.  She was so excited to receive them!


This is a photo of the bearded dragon ornament she made for my older DD!


Don't make fun of me, but I had asked her to make something for our bearded dragons too!  She delivered!  She made blankets for each of them that matched the color they were.  In this photo you can see Eliot the orange dragon with her orange blanket, that says 'Eliot' on it.  She sent a personalized blanket for each of the three beardies.

This is a photo of the ornament she sent my son:

Please enjoy the goofy face my handsome son made while showing off the cute little tie pin that was sent for him:

There was bearded dragon artwork included for my younger DD, and she likes it so much, she told me twice!  She said she also showed it to her dragon, and the dragon licked it-dragon seal of approval, I guess!

This was a fabric covered notebook for my older DD.  Do you think she liked it? Grin

My older DD has a leopard gecko.  So BBM made her an AWESOME pillow cover and even included the pillow form!

Orgami (sp) paper was sent for my older DD, who has been interested in it for years.

Here's a photo of one of the pillowcases BBM sent:

I saw my older DD open this and both her sister and I went:  "OOOOOHHHHHHHH!!!!!"  Needless to say, I'm going to see if Michael's Crafts has a sale on them today!  Cheesy
My younger DD received a box filled to the brim with art supplies!  (We had also given her some, she was so pleased with all that she received!)

Here's a photo of my younger DD with her ornament.  She's into Broadway shows, so BBM made her a 'Lion King' themed one!

DH received an ornament of a rat eating a flower.  It sounds odd, but I'm making another post titled 'Craftster Love' and you can read the story behind the rat and the flower.


I feel as if I'm missing something, BigBangMomma.  If I am, please feel free to post it.  Thank you for being so understanding about my posting photos when I did.  All of the gifts you sent were so generous, and wrapped so beautifully!  I am so grateful you were my partner for this swap!  Thank you again!

I'm opening on a modified schedule as I wanted to open the 12 days before Christmas, but will be away a couple of days before Christmas.

A gift from Santa, a beautiful bookmark and pencil from Wales



Day one, an adorable little bird house with the cutest little snowman



Day two, cute cross stitch kits, pretty floss and some festive buttons



On the third day I received a cute snowman wash cloth and some pretty pink soap



On the fourth day a beautiful cross stitch book mark and an interesting book on soap making, can't wait to get more time to sit down and look through this more.



On the fifth day of Christmas, Holistic knitter sent to me, a crochet Ornament kit which supports teen cancer trust. One of my daughters had cancer so I love the support, even though Holistic Knitter probably didn't know.



Some more extras, cute reindeer socks and an adorable Ornament.



On day six I received a gorgeous pink grapevine wreath, I love it.



On day seven there was a cute star garland



On day eight is a beautiful scarf, it's so soft.



On day nine is a great sock knitting kit. A sock pattern book, gorgeous pink yarn, some beautiful stitch markers and some needles. My favourite thing to knit is socks so I will enjoy this very much.



On day ten is this adorable penguin stocking.



On day eleven are 3 gorgeous hoops with the "life cycle" of a dandelion, can't wait to hang them up.





On day twelve is a beautiful pieced sewing project bag, a pin cushion and needle holder along with a knitting project bag, needle roll and pouch.





Thank you so much Holistic Knitter for all the time and thought you put into this package.

No Hobby Lobby in Canada - but I may have to check out a few Marshall's - I was just at one last week, but we were more interested in looking at toys and decor than gift wrap

Oh my!  It's not funny but I couldn't help laughing.

I am not sure I remember all the days in order.  I had it written down and got rid of that paper.

From what I can see:
pocket letter and tags were for one of the #1-6 days
sewing mat - day 12
patches was for one of the #1-6 days
flag was for one of the #1-6 days
crocheted mats - probably day 7
beads - this was an extra

Free Schnauzer: female, name is Izzy.  Goes by Turd.    Got off work came home at 3:15, left at 3:30 to go eat.  Back home at 4:15 to this!

I dont know whether to laugh or cry.   She tears mail up but I thought the presents were safe!  She has not messed with them until today.
