Here is a photo of the beautiful trio of gifts I received from [email protected] yesterday.  I love them!  Carolyn, I hope it's okay, but I am using the photo from your blog.  Thanks again!  By the way, have you received your gift yet?  I am so hoping it got there in one piece!!

I sent my gift UPS yesterday,  and I received my gift also.  Ameryal send a delightful package with handmade cards, some beautiful soaps and cuticle oil.  Boy do I need the cuticle oil for my nubby fingers.  I can't even find my camera right now, but the soaps were in little jelly jars with Christmas fabric on top and ribbons.   Thanks so much!!!

I'm glad you received your gift alright. I'm so happy that you liked the cuticle oil. I kinda overscented it so you could also use it as a solid perfume. happy-flowerI received your gift today. All I can say is WOW! I really needed that. Thanks ever so much.

To everyone else, JeannieB sent me a bunch of lovely crocheted washcloths, an apron, a pair of crocheted slippers and quilted tote bag. It was very generous. I was wanting an apron and some more washcloths, but I can't crochet right now due to pregnancy aggravated carpal tunnel. Needless to say (but I'm going to anyhow) I really love it. Thanks.

I am thrilled to report that I received a beautiful pine cone wreath from my swap partner, SusieQ!  It arrived last evening via UPS and came in a handy wreath storage box so I have a safe place to keep it between display seasons.  (Tho I think it will stay up at least till spring is well-advanced!)Image Enlarger

Here's a picture of it hanging in the living room. I'll be adding a poinsettia or Christmas arrangement and candles below the wreath this weekend when we put up the rest of our indoor decorations.  Thank you very much, SusieQ!  I love the wreath!

And, I'm glad you liked the gift I made for you.  I think it's neat that we both were thinking pine trees — in one form or another!

Hey, susieQ, I think we must have been posting at the same time — or, at least, I tried to post and then had some weird thing happening to the pic I was trying to post and it took me awhile to get it sorted out.

Yes, as I (finally got) posted above, the wreath arrived safe and sound and I knew just where I wanted to hang it.  Thank you!

YAY!  I got my gifts from Lizzie!  Thank you so much!  I got an assortment of lovely soaps, a WONDERFULLY scented lotion (I love this one, seriously!), and a jar of raspberry/blackberry jam.  I will attempt to take and post a picture tonight, but suffice to say I'm so excited :D

 

Lizzie – your package will be in the mail tonight. I'm so sorry it's gonna be late!  I was going to send it early last week but have been down with a terrible cold. I'll send you a PM with the tracking info!

I got my box from Miss Judy!!!

 

Image Enlarger

There are 9 (yes, NINE!) jars of different jams!! 

I've only ever made peach jam, not ANY of the others.  I will be enjoying the jars of goodness, believe me.  In fact, I had a difficult time figuring which one to try first…I went with the Cranberry Pear Ambrosia.

The potholders are just the cutest!  I love that type of print on the material…the name is leaving me right now…but that is the material I just love.   The potholders will NOT be used on a pot.  No, they are going to be hung at the top of my window.

And the notecards!  Wow!!  So many of them and they are just beautiful!  I love to do papercrafts, but just never seem to do them.  I have lots of things in my mind, but never have what I need to get them done….punches, stamps, etc.  I won't want to give them out, but I will happy-flower

This one is my favorite!

 

 

 

 

Thank you so much, Judy!!!  I will cherish these hug

VAfarmer,

     I am so glad you received your gift!!! I sent it out on the 1st of December and was wondering?  Do not worry about getting my gift in the mail, take care of yourself and get better.  The lotion is made out of shea butter, and almond oil, and does smell yummy, just for you!  Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!   snuggle
