Christmas Stockings

Hi Everyone,

I have been such a slacko when it comes to blog posts.  Have become a regular stalker of several awesome ladies, but for myself .....posting mojo definately depleted.

However.....yesterday I had an amazing parcel arrive in the mail and today I must give the the provider of these awesome goodies the acknowledgement she so rightly deserves.......yes Nomes.....that would be you.

I have singed up to a Christmas Swap.  The guidelines of this swap were/are: 

Make a Santa Sack and send it with 2 wrapped pressies (not to be opened until Christmas Morning).  Then each month, 2 more goodies should be posted to our partners (or some of us...3 months at once) and in December we add something Christmassy that takes a little more effort to organise.......easy peasy hey? 

So, a couple of months ago, my first parcel arrived from the wonderful Naomi

Naomi listed 2 of her likes as being Owls and the colour Purple..........

Then yesterday my big parcel came (Nomes is now in front by a month) which looks a little like this:

Doesn't it look pretty......with Nome's trademark......purple and owls........

Now, some of you may be thinking......haaaaaang on a minute.....if the pressies are not to be opened until Christmas, why do we see some goodies clearly on show?

That would be because the wonderful Naomi popped 2 pressies in my Christmas card that I was allowed to open yesterday.....just to tantalise (or perhaps torture).
I am now the proud owner of a lovely silver beaded and owled bookmark and a cute little owl keyring.....I think I'll use him as a scissor fob :)

Thanks Naomi, sigh.........still such a long time to wait for opening day.

Here is my santa sack I sent to Naomi....I had lots of fun making it and I know she loved it.

Have to go and collect a child......quickly......hope all are well who read my post...have a great weekend everyone xoxoxoxox
