First off, NO DIBBS!

Second, get out your towels to wipe the drool because here’s all the lovely gifts I received from Denise Kenna. OMG was I ever spoiled!

Day 1: A great little book with pockets to hold tea. I’ve seen these before, but have never made one, nor received one, and I so love tea.

Day 2: Oh, ladies, what a true labor of love this must have been for Denise to create. She made me a birthday book using the new Graphic 45 Place in Time paper pack…a page for every month of the year! Wow Denise that must have taken you forever to create. I love Graphic 45 papers. I’m going to put photos in it as well of people whose birthdays land on those months. Was this a kit or did you design it yourself?

Day 3: A very cute altered Paris themed purse. She even attached a charm with my initials on it.

Day 4: It’s a magnetic board with bird theme. I love it! And yes, I was careful when I opened it. It even said on the back tag “sharp edges”.

Day 5: The most gorgeous banner made from CDs. Denise I sure hope those were old CDs…LOL It fits perfect in my den area. I hung it between the window frame and sliding door frame.

Day 6: She made me notecards! I love them, especially since I didn’t really need gift tags. I just love the way you colored them.

Day 7: My middle initial in blues and greens (I lucked out on this directive because my craft room is done in blues and greens). I just love the way you used the beads and the pins.

Day 8: The cutest necklace I’ve ever seen. A bird’s nest with “pearl” eggs inside, what a great gift. I truly love things that are different and unique.

Day 9: CHOCOLATE! Since DH works for Hershey’s, she sent me an Alaskan chocolate bar and two packs of Alaskan hot cocoa…YUM-O. I even like that little wallet your friend made…I’m going to use it for my business cards.

Day 10: Two handmade masculine card fronts. You know I sell SU and don’t even own that stamp set. They’re so cute.

Day 11: PINK! How’d you know! I’m STILL working on my girls’ albums, but my youngest really loves PINK! LOL I love all of it, especially those crochet wrapped buttons.

Day 12: The cutest little snowman ornament with sheet music and my name. I’m thinking I’m going to put that on a chain and wear it around to show it off. It is so adorable.

Thank you so much Denise for spoiling me, I was really on the verge of tears as I opened each gift. You put so much thought and love into each and every item, and so much hard work as well. Thank you also for the extra papers too.

Question: what project did you find on Pinterest…the note fell off in the box so I don’t know.

WooHoo! So glad you like everything Robin! I got to use things I had for a while and hadn't used much like the SU stamp. The glass snowman was a first. I've had the supplies for a long time and finally used it.

The bird's nest was the pinterest find. Just so cute! Not sure about the chain. I wanted to use a silk cord but the one I had broke.Glare Found the tea bag pattern on pinterest. Think I'll make some for the school office ladies.

The CD's were recycled from some school programs. Seemed like a good way to recycle and have a sturdy backing.

The notecards started out as your blue/green item and your "S" was going to be day 2 but then I found the Place in Time pack! First time using G45 (it kind of scared me since it is always so busy). The idea was NOT mine, I searched youtube and found this http://www.psychomomscra...e-in-time-calendar.html
She has it as an album but I wanted you to decide what you wanted to do with it. I think I'm going to make one for myself tooLaugh And I'm going to take the format to make Aidan and Delanie trip logs for our Panama Cruise in the spring.

So I'm thrilled that you loved everything and I got to try some new things as well. ENJOY!!!

I subscribe to psychomoms on YouTube, guess I missed that video...LOL LOL I like the scrapbook idea as well, but for me, birthday book works so I don't forget everyone's birthday...LOL

Graphic 45 has a Travelogue paper pack that would be great for your cruise. Also, scrapbook.com has all Graphic 45 on sale for 15% off today AND you get a free easel album (while supplies last) with your order. I love ordering from scrapbook.com. You should check out/subscribe to their blog as well (http://g45papers.typepad.com), lots of great ideas there, plus chances to win just about every week (I won a few months ago...Le Cirque paper pack, mini envelopes and the door knob embellishment) just for posting on their blog/facebook.

Thanks again, I really do love everything.

Robin, Denise did a great job on everything and she really showed off your love of the bright blue and green color scheme that matches your craftroom colors. It's just all so bright and cheery looking! Super nice job on the bday book but I'd say she put lots of love and time into everything! The snowman music sheet necklace was a neat idea too!

**************

Ali also did a great job on everything for Amy. It can be a little nerve wracking when you have to make for someone new to this swap that we aren't familiar with. So you did a wonderful Ali!

Too funny on the banana chips! How perfect for the fruit directive! The tissue box turned out nice too. I need to make one of that style (long and rectangular).

Enjoy it all Amy.

I had a blast making everything for you! the ornaments with the ribbon inside I found the idea online! I was actually looking for a tutorial for how to make flowers out ribbon and ran into this site that has 101 different things to do with ribbon. those were so simple to make and I happen to have the ornaments here to use. it was so much fun creating everything for you! enjoy all of it! I see the little candy house didn't survive the mail to well, but at least the candy made it safe!

http://www.squidoo.com/1...hings-to-do-with-ribbon this is the website I got the idea for the ribbon ornaments if anyone wants some other ideas.




Thank you, Bridgette helping with the bag!

Amy, I forgot to say how clever the matchbook drawers for advent calendar were.I going to have to try that!!

I love see everyone goodies, AMAZING stuff ladies!!I am scrap lifting some of everyone ideas.

Kathy, nice bunch of goodies from Pamela.

Don't mean to sound rude, but I can't tell what the fruit item is?? A plaque with a verse on it or altered notebook or what?

The banner idea is real cute too - pictures instead of spelling out a word.

Enjoy it all Kathy!

that was a little bit of a project not really to hard to put together once you figure out how to get everything cut! I hope all the little drawers open I did go back over and try opening all of them before I mailed and I did have a little bit of a hard time with a few but I think I fixed them! enjoy all the candy! I bought the little match boxes at the dollar store in packages of ten! then the trick is to find candy small enough to fit inside the little boxes! I googled how to make them after I recieved an email with directions involving buying a kit! I wanted that to be the fruit item so I added the holly berry to the top! my way of thinking outside the box!

Thanks again Ali for a gift that is truly appreciated!

I actually have several other items now on display but this one in particular makes up the entire theme of the shelf, so I had to show it off



You're Welcome Gwynne..it looks great with your other decorations.

Gywnne, You are so nice! I was actually concerned that hardly anything was very "Holiday"ish but I am also a blue and green fan so those colors were easy to work with.

Love Kathy's banner with the Saturated Canary stamp.

COB might be having issues again with logging on to the MB. AT one point last night I was not able to. Just a crazy week!

Well, of the 6 DC#s I am now tracking....the package mailed LAST is the pkg. that is actually moving on time and will be delivered tomorrow on good ole brown truck UPS! So congrats to UPS for doing their job this month!

As for the USPS - 4 out of the 5 pkgs. are now past due with the pkg. mailed first out of all of them has not even updated yet! So I'm hoping by this afternoon something wonderful will magically happen and I'll find that all 4 will be out for delivery. But I'm not holding my breath. The 5th pkg. is slated for tomorrow and it very well may arrive on time.

I'll be away from computer tonight for some time as we have a christmas concert to travel to.

Also, my new computer arrived so not sure when DH is going to switch everything over but if I go MIA from Thurs evening thru the weekend....that will be why. Everything he touches goes sour this week, so lord only knows what will happen when we do the switchover.... Men!

I'm baking my beloved sugar cookies this weekend, so no big deal if I don't have computer access. I will be busy with the baking!

UGH! The MB would not let me back in at all last night; hope your fingers aren't sore from tapping! LOL

AmyS was my SS and No dibbs, it's ALL mine! Thank you Amy for all the time and imagination you put into my lovely things!

Fruit item - a teacup pincushion
Love item - candle w/ hearts
French item - I mentioned that I would like any one of the letters in "OLDBAT" altered so I *think* she altered the letter "O" to look like a hot air balloon which after a bit of research I discovered were first introduced in France by two Frenchmen, hence the connection (Feel free to correct me Amy!)Right or wrong, it's very cute and imaginative!
Feather item - Again I *think* it's an angel - very pretty! It's hard to see but there is a tiny beaded person in the center and the feathers would be the wings
Banner - Also imaginative, the "letters" are a Christmas stocking, snowflake and angel and if you step back and look it really does look like the word "JOY"
Gift Tags
Blue/Green items - Salt scrub & lovely stick pins (the scrub smells yummy!)
Pearl item - Please forgive my ignorance Amy but I honestly don't know what it is, I'm sorry! It's lovely, the color combination is def to my taste but is it a scarf, garland or something else??
Purse/bag item - Again she went outside the box and sent an ADORABLE snowman wine tube w/ M&Ms. I don't drink wine but think of how many M&Ms I could hide in there!(It's about 18" tall..)LOL LOL
Masculine item - card fronts
Trims/ribbon flowers - lovely flowers and a spray (2 of the flowers have already been added to a bday gift I'm making
Music sheet item - an ornament

Again thanks for all your time, effort and imagination AmyS, you made me think and I appreciate that!

When you re-size your pics, they have to be less than 1Kb (under 1,000 for both horizontal and vertical measurement) or they show as a link

Yay! on the banner! Everyone I showed it to didn't "get" it until I pointed it out.lol

Same for the balloon, most people had no clue, amazingly though, I showed it to my husband and he knew right away! I had a LOT of fun with that one and almost didn't send it to you because I like it so much (I couldn't remove the handle of the basket, but I thought it looked okay pushed down to the back). Definitely a huge French connection with the balloon and I also gave it a little bit of a French feel with the decorations (I hope), plus the Steampunk edge with the balloon and the decorations. I love your idea with getting the letters for your room and wanted to give you something out of the box.

The feather was supposed to be a butterfly, but I see the angel too. lol. Those damn feather made my nose itch.

The pearl item is a scarf in pearl colors - I hope you wear scarves, if not, it would work as a mantle garland or similar.

For the container, I read that you collected snowmen and thought it would be great to display. I use one this time of year and have those really long matches for my fire in there.

The salt scrub is wonderful on your hands or feet and will leave the so soft and smooth.

YAY! I got most of them right LOL My first thought on the pearl item was a fancy/dressy scarf but unless it's a wedding or a wake I dress like a bum most of the time! I'd be a perfect candidate for "What Not To Wear"LOL but I didn't want to say thank you for the lovely _____ and be wrong so I figured the best idea was to fess up my redneck ways LOL LOL
