Glad it made it to you, Tres!!! Sorry to hear you haven't been getting much sleep. Hopefully DH will be home soon! I couldn't remember if I signed anything or not! LOL Glad the kids liked all the candy canes. Did you open your St. Nick gifts? Be nice and save the rest for their specific days though! If you don't mind, could you please post pictures of your goodies. I completely forgot to take any pictures!




I took a few pictures and here they are. I loved how much detail went into everything. Melissa you are such a wonderful secret Santa!!! Thanks so much

Squirmy's mom, another box will be coming in the mail. I was able to fix the wing tip with a little gem. This time, I put your card inside the box! Hmmm, do I reveal who I am or wait until Christmas?

I am very excited that we can start opening on Friday. I am going to take a photo before then of all the wonderful gifts that DisneyLisa sent me, all wrapped so beautifully. Lisa, I really want to know the secret to that snow flake box, it is amazing. I have been trying not to look at the box as not to be tempted.

Wishing you all a wonderful blessed week. It is a cold and windy Monday here.

Hello Ladies. I had a wonderful time with my sweet grandbaby this weekend. I also got to do some shopping with Sally on Thursday night.

I arrived home to a yellow slip for a package that my dh didn't make it to the post office on time Saturday, I just went and got the mountain of a box from Tonya. That was one huge long box. Thank you so much Tonya. The tags are beautiful and all the lovely bath gels and all the wonderful smelling Lavender gels, mist, scrub and lotions. I hear the Jacuzzi calling my name saying "You know you wanta." lol Later tonight when I get back home. I'll also take a picture later as I have to get stuff ready for a crop tonight. Again Tonya thank you so much!!!!!!

I'm not disappointed. I'm counting the chocolates attached to the packages as early openers. Because I already ate them.
Excuse-i couldn't leave chocolate under the tree with our dog.
reality- our dog wouldn't touch them but the looked yummy so. I tasted one the didn't stop. Lol

I received a package of goodies from my Santa Scrappinlily and I'm so excited. The tags are so very cute and the card is wonderful. Please don't ever underestimate your card making skills I love it!!!!.

I want you to know that this swap is so important to me because I have no friends or family in Texas and the gifts I get at Christmas are from this swap. I celebrate spiritually but let's face it, it's always fun to open something.

Hugs to you all!

Sassy glad that it arrived, I wanted to send it in another box but it would have been more costly...so I had to send it that way. Glad that you love all the bath stuff. Have fun with the candy too. Relax girlie.

I'm so glad you got it, I didn't write on the card or tags so they can be reused glad you liked them, I love this swap too last year I couldn't do it we couldn't afford it and I missed it was glad when I could join this year, not sure if I wrote on the letter that there is an extra gift (there should be 13 pkg. total) so you could open 1 any day before we start opening gifts

I had a good time and it was great to see you again! We never did get all that rain we were supposed to get Friday and you must have left us some of your warm weather as the temps didn't drop either. Still in the 50's today, but still gloomy.

Next time you're in town, we'll have to go to the other Pat Catan's. I passed it yesterday and it looks twice as big as the one in my town. Also, right down the road is a Tuesday Morning. I thought they closed down. Sometimes they have some scrapbook supplies, but if not, they have a lot of other cool stuff to look at.
All day Saturday, I kept thinking it was Sunday and I scrapped most of the day.

For the past 16 years I've had a job where I sit in front of a computer all day. I'm fortunate in that often I have some free time to peruse scrapbook sites and blogs. In nearly 9 years of scrapping I've come across many wonderful tutorials (and I'm extremely grateful to those who take the time to put them out there for me to find). I have hundreds bookmarked and printed out and have probably made variations of about 1/3 of them to give to family and friends. After all these years I can modify designs pretty easily (to get the size I need or combining elements from different ideas) and I'm even pretty good at just seeing an idea and figuring it out without instructions.

That said, some of the following won't give you exactly what I made but here's where I got ideas for some of the boxes I used for Lorna.

I hear ya TJ, I was like that until my secret Santa sent me a pm to let me know it's on it's way, in case it doesn't arrive by Friday. It's the not knowing part that sucks. I'm sure you're package is on it's way too.

LMAO... surprised you haven't gotten into the candy yet! It would've been gone already sitting here. LOL Looking forward to tomorrow! I put dates on the packages I sent you, so you shouldn't have an issue figuring out which ones to open when. Would you mind taking pictures though? I completely spaced it as I was trying to fit everything into the box.

Question... The packages I received were just numbered, are we starting with #1 or #12? Santa, which order were they intended to be opened in?

On December 13th your pal will open their handmade card. (in the past I have given a snack or a handmade item as an xtra token)

Then on December 14th they will open their first gift (labeled with that date).

I cant remember if I started with 1 or 12 but I sent a letter with direction so my pal would know. I cant wait until tomorrow. I don't know which I am more excited about opening or seeing if my pal likes her gift.

So glad to be in this group. I have had a rough couple of weeks and can use the lift me up each day since it will be another rough couple of weeks still to come.

No one knew this but a few that my partner backed out and that is why I have been so distant. a few days ago a santa sent me a gift. If any of you know me I collect 2 things fairies and owls. It was a stuffed white owl holding a package of sticklers. It id=s the only thing in my tree but lights. Had no christmas spirit this year. THANK YOU Laura it meant alot to me. My only gift. Dont feel bad for me. I dont have family so be blessed all that do.

The container of goodies was an extra so please enjoy. So I was confused and I think I attached your card to gift 1. Sorry

Hello TJ
Your box is on its way to you. I am so sorry to be tardy. You deserve so much better. But was due to medical difficulties.



Sweetie I can understand about medical difficulties, been going through plenty myself these past few months and especially alot this past week. These past two months have been getting rougher and my job is making my conditions worse. Sucks booty, I am sure all is good, I just wanted to know that it was on its way or was coming. It being late is fine, I get to open a few gifts at once...lol.

Heather, I am so sorry to hear this! May I add you to my Christmas card list? If you send me your address, of course. If we would have known, we might have been able to angel your SS's spot. I definitely understand the lack of Holiday spirit. Things are pretty bleak around here too. Hugs!

BTW Friday is much too long of a wait...LOL

I might have to tuck into those mini snickers bars Melissa sent to tide me over.



LMAO... surprised you haven't gotten into the candy yet! It would've been gone already sitting here. LOL Looking forward to tomorrow! I put dates on the packages I sent you, so you shouldn't have an issue figuring out which ones to open when. Would you mind taking pictures though? I completely spaced it as I was trying to fit everything into the box.

Question... The packages I received were just numbered, are we starting with #1 or #12? Santa, which order were they intended to be opened in?



Melissa start with #12 -- #1. #2 is label Christmas Eve and #1 is label Christmas Day.

BLING - I got Christmas bling. I love everything sparkly. Thank you squirmysmom. I will post pictures later today. I agreed to taking some of my part time kids but didn't remember to write it down so I have 4 bottle and diaper babies and they are all at that age where they see a bottle and want it. So today should be fun.

And I still have 3 four year olds that have to get preschool so arts and crafts will have to be free style today.

I cant wait until 7 when they all will be gone and I can do my arts and crafts time with my new bling.

Heather Im glad you liked your gift. I want you to know I had it well before you were flaked on! I love you Heather! Im sorry your not having a Christmas spirit, mine has been drained this year also.

You are blessed Heather with the love in your heart! Your blessed to have such a great personality & love for people and making others happy over yourself. Youve had a tuff year but yet you've made time to make ALOT of people on this board happy with your crafty & loving ways.

I do know how deeply heart you truley have to be given the situation. I personally think its a load of ******** - and Im sick & tierd of good hearted people being flaked on here on this board.

I am not trying to bring this swap down because as large as it is it's seem to be going amazingly well & Im sooo happy to have been a part of it. I got a super great pal (Cindy) she did send to me things of LOVE! Sadly enough to say things didnt happen with my pal as I would have wanted 'but what can ya do? I love sharing & I love seeing other people happy more then myself!!

I pray you ALL have a Merry Christmas!! Make it the best that you can with the love & power's that you hold to allow negitivy near you or out the front door.

Loads of LOVE to everyone who followed through with this swap. I am so proud of you ALL its a tuff time of year but YOU took out the time to make someone else happy. And for that you are ALL so wonderful -- Love you ALL!

I am so glad you like it. I actually picked out another in blue glass but when I took the tag off the blue came off there too. So I kept looking and I will alter the blue one for my porch. I had a great time at the antique store. I can't wait to see what you make with it. I hope you feel better soon.

I got my box today! I went to my physical therapy appointment and there on my front porch waiting for me was two boxes! My mail lady was 45 min early! My secret Santa had also sent me another gift with them really yummy chocolate covered peanuts that I don't think will last the day. I'd better go hide them now. The packages are so cute, I don't want to open them until Christmas! H

Hoping my pal checks in, I was being a brat and I didn't let her know who I was, LOL.. well, I did put my name on my hand made item, but she hasn't checked in to say she got it yet.

I just opened my first gift.. My pal, Toni, tricked me! she rolled it up and wrapped it. I got some Prima "say it Crystals" borders. Very pretty! I'll have to get a picture of them later. As well of the rest of the gifts before I open them.
