AWW!!! I have been good I promise. ;o)

Interests - that is a tough one. Of course I love scrapbooking but I also LOVE Christmas. I have a tree in every room and decorations to go with it. I basically remove all of my normal decor and put it in the attic so Christmas shines through. I have a room dedicated to victorian style (colors are cream, gold, pink and burgundy), a room dedicated to nature (nothing glass as my daycare is in this part of the house, so wood, pine cones, flowers etc.) my son even has a tree in his room with all Pittsburgh Steelers ornaments. I decorate on Thanksgiving because everyone is home to do it as a family. I will post pictures to my gallery.

I collect Longaberger sort of (I use all o my baskets even if they are hung up the come down when i need them)

I LOVE (can't stress that enough LOVE)choxie milk chocolate truffle that Target sells this time of year but mine is almost always out of them. lol

My favorite color is pink but I don't rarely decorate with it because I am the only female in the house. Even our dog is male. lol

I like the food mixed (cheese balls, dips etc.) that the department store sell for Christmas.

Wow! Sitting here thinking of things I like or want is really difficult. I shop for my family all the time but don't really shop for myself. I'm sorry if this is hard for you too. Thank you for taking the time to get to know me. If you need more info feel free to ask.



I have been been searching high and low for some
choxie truffles!!! hope my elves can find them for me soon because I only have tags to make then its WRAPPING TIME!!!





I asnwered someone else about choxie but didn't even see this and realize it was becasue of me. lol.
Target isn't carrying choxie anymore which is funny because it is exclusive to their stores. BOO on them.
I can't wait to see what you have been working on.

I have never made tags before. I guess they are like scrapbook pages and get better as time goes by so I will apologize to my pal now for the beginner tags they will receive.
I am thinking of taping a post it note with the date the package should be opened written on it on the back of the tag so my pal can re-use the tag if they choose.
I usually add a post it note to the inside of my cards for my signature and greeting also so they may re-use that as well.

Would this be allowed?

I have 5 tags left to make then wrapping and Im ready to go but wanted to make sure I wasnt breaking any rules!!! SANTA IS WATCHING!!!

Is anyone else having trouble deciding which package you want your pal to open when? I am. And the last one is the only one I am sure about. I might just wrap them all and put random tags on then we can both be surprised when she opens them. Lol

^^ I like that idea. I lay them all out in the floor in the order I think I want her to open them, but rearrange & switch.

Since I am new, that means I need to ship by November 30, correct ? Everything is ready, I just need to wrap everything and box it.

I was getting ready to make my card and I had wondered, is the card for our secret pal personally? or for them to use to give someone else? And, do we open our card first or when our SS decides for us to open it?

I bought my stuff for my tags today and bought some awesome goodies for my pal as well. I am waiting until Saturday to order the last of her goodies from an online store. I have went overboard, but hey its the time of giving. Off to craftroom.

Hi to my pal. I am doing better. 2 full days back to work. I had planned on half days and ease in but things just dont always work the way you plan. I am ok tired. Sore some but not bad. I can definatly move my hands better. Still have heads hoping its from the swelling and healing. I can walk better too. I would say 40% improv on knees. The disks were bulging into my spinal cord more than they had thought.

Who likes Spellbinders??
What about the SewEasy??
I have many things in my basket here at home for swaps that I have received double of, so all unopened and brand new just waiting for a home to go to. So would love everyone to answer even though I am just lookin for my pal's LOL.

I love spellbinders. I have never used the sew easy but very curious.

I need to get everything wrapped. I too am having trouble deciding what order everything should be ine. My tags are backwards too. I put 1st, 2nd, 3, 4, etc. Except on the last two. I stamped with one with a stamp that says twas the nite before Christmas and the other has a 25 on it for Christmas. Call it the blonde in me. Everytime I think I am done I find something that I think my pal would like more. So many decisions. I may just have to wrap them up and let fate take charge with where the tags land.

I have been thinking about buying the Sew Easy for several months now, but just haven't broke down and done it. I think it would be a quick way to add decorative accents to my projects!

I am almost done wrapping all of my pal's gifts!!!

I have a bunch of spellbinders and love them. The sew easy....well I do a lot of cross stitch & needlepoint so I don't know that I'd spend my money buying one when I figure I could just do it....but it certainly would make life easier I imagine then doing it by hand so if someone happened to give me one, I wouldn't be upset.

Hi pal, love the santa, yes I love halloween I have alot of halloween pages that need to be done my girls have been all kinds of things but here are some examples of what I need to do yet...pooh,tigger,witch,dorothy and blues clues

as far as soccer I can always use paper or embellishments or stickers (as long as they aren't flat I hardly ever use them) or handmade items ( I had someone make me a tear bear with her team colors and her # wish I knew how to make another one, someday I am gonna get me things to try to make my own tear bears, I am always trying to find different soccer things cuz she has played for 5 years (2 seasons a year) so I have alot of soccer to scrap I have a couple different soccer brads so I am probably good on them, her team colors are emerald green and white if that helps and they made it to state this year we went down last weekend she lost but still very proud of her team for making it they worked very hard for it and have tried to go the last 5 years so it was nice they finally made it I hope this helps have a great weekend

Questions.....
When we wrap the gifts and put the tags on them, we label the first one we want our pal to open as #12 then work our way to 1? Or do we put the dates on them Dec 14-Dec 25?
When do we reveal who we are? does the card get opened with the first gift or the last one?
Sorry, this is my first swap like this!

Hi Sassy Suzi, hope you have been busy with your pals goodies too. I am playing with your tags...shopping away for your goodies and deciding on what I am going to do as a handmade gift for you.

I can definitely find your chocolate covered cherries. The other one..I will have to hunt for some.
This is so much fun being secretive and playing secret santa.

It is completely up to you. I would just include a quick note telling them the order you want them to open them. And you can tel them upon sending or wait until the last gift it is up to you how long you want to keep the secret.

Hi pal, love the santa, yes I love halloween I have alot of halloween pages that need to be done my girls have been all kinds of things but here are some examples of what I need to do yet...pooh,tigger,witch,dorothy and blues clues

as far as soccer I can always use paper or embellishments or stickers (as long as they aren't flat I hardly ever use them) or handmade items ( I had someone make me a tear bear with her team colors and her # wish I knew how to make another one, someday I am gonna get me things to try to make my own tear bears, I am always trying to find different soccer things cuz she has played for 5 years (2 seasons a year) so I have alot of soccer to scrap I have a couple different soccer brads so I am probably good on them, her team colors are emerald green and white if that helps and they made it to state this year we went down last weekend she lost but still very proud of her team for making it they worked very hard for it and have tried to go the last 5 years so it was nice they finally made it I hope this helps have a great weekend



glad you like the photo of me sitting at my desk. thanks for all of the updates. do you like altered halloween items? congrats for your daughters soccer team. that is great to hear. i cant get the elves to play any kind of sports with me.

im still working on your presents and having fun. i hope you have a blessed thanksgiving. not to long after that I come to visit.





yes I would use altered halloween items....halloween, christmas and easter are about the only holidays I scrap and once in awhile 4th of july so I would use anything that has to do with halloween

Drayia, You should have your package of goodies in a week or two. I do not have experience with mailing to Canada so I wanted to try to get it moving early. Shake your jingle bells.....
I have the customs form but they told me that I could not do the Confirmation Receipt.
I did not know what to put on the customs form either. I just put decorations. and that it is a gift. I really hope that it makes it there okay. I did find out that you should not package in priority mail boxes to ship there. It cost twice the rate and doesn't get there any faster. HMMMMM..... I did not want to risk taking it home and repackaging.... I want it to get there. It is on the way! Hope it gets there in one piece. Several pieces in one, I should say.

I will keep an eye open for it, my expereince is that it will arrive here in about 14 days. So dont sweat it for at least 2 weeks and that is business days, nothing move this side of the boarder on weekends Can't Wait!!

Hi everyone! Sorry I haven't been in here as often as I'd hoped. The craft fairs have been keeping me busy. Every time I go buy materials for the craft fair items, I end up picking up something else for my pal. Someone's getting spoiled.

Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving! We have 3 separate Thanksgiving dinners on Thursday, so we'll be all over town. My Aunt is hosting her side of the family in the morning, then my Mother is having us over for lunch, and then we have the huge family reunion dinner. It's always a great time though! By Friday, I won't want to look at another turkey for months!

Hi Lisa!

So sorry I haven't checked in to say Hi in awhile. I have not forgotten about you, there's no way! Been busy getting things ready for you. Shouldn't be long now. I hope you are doing well and getting to have some scrappy time. Have a Happy Turkey Day and be safe if you venture out for some shopping this Friday

Hi Santa - I had some bad days for a while but much better this week. I think I'm really looking forward to the upcoming time off.

Tonight I am going to teach a bunch of 11 year old girl scouts how to make ornaments which they are using for an ornament drop (leaving them randomly around town for people to find). Might post photos after they are done, if it goes well.

I having a lovely time looking for your wonderful packages but have a question about the Tim Holtz stapler you asking about, is it the Tiny Attacher that you are wanting?? Also there are several things on you wishlist that I just can't find around here and would have to order them in from far, far away so was wondering if you have anything else you are hopeing for



Glad to hear from you. Yes it is the tiny stapler I would like. As for other things I will have to think about that for a minute.




So after much thought about if there was anything specific I would like. To be honest I cannot really think of 1 thing specifically. I am taking my son to Disney World in January so anything Disney would really be great. I have had my eye on the new paper pad with Captain hook in it. So I would say surprise me! and Thank you for being my Secret Santa!
