Thank you Claire - what a lovely pack . Way over the limit
but it's fabulous and thanks very much.
I had notebook, pen set, brads ,ribbons and other crafty bits
and a gorgeous handmade shopping list. What a fantastic job you
made of that. You could sell those - so well done.

Many thanks and Happy Christmas all.

Well, I have Ruth to thank for my fantastic array of goodies!

I lovely pillow box full of crafty delights - brads, buttons, ribbons, and ink pad, a stamp, flowers and more...

My handmade gift was a gorgeous bind-it-all book to keep all my birthday cards in throughout the year, complete with a stamped image in each wallet to colour in and use! (I will have to take a picture and show you all at some point, as I can't do it justice with a brief description).

Thanks Ruth! Loves ya

(Steph - glad you liked your bits - and I do sell the shopping lists! LOL)

Thank you, Dawn - it's fab!! Loves ya

I was right, my SS was Lou and i got a gorgeous organsier file, just the right size for A5 cards, a lovely personal impressions stamp, some cute cat images in an organza bag, a cat ATC in a wallet type protector, and a notebook. I will post a picture later.

Thank you so much Lou and hope you have a wonderful Christmas, glad you liked yours Claire

Maria was my SS and when DH brought in the parcel from France I knew it would be a goodie, and it is, picture tomorrow, lovely earrings and a scarf, silk one and I do wear scarves, so you chose well. A lovely handmade and decorated box (Mum's eyes perked up when she saw that) With gorgeous handmade tag, covered notepad and lots of lovely feely fibres. Happy teddy here, thank you. clap

I'd like to thank Cynthia for my fabulous SS present. Some lovely sweets and soap. Lots of lovely African buttons, brads etc. Animal print serviettes, a chipboard giraffe, a wee book to decorate and some primas. My handmade item was a lovely envelope book. I am not sure what to use that for yet but it will be used. Thank you Cynthia. I guess it could be used as a scrapbook with pictures in the envelope pockets, or for keeping ATC's in, not sure yet. Also there were some lovely stamped giraffe images in with the book. I am well chuffed and so pleased I joined in now.
I think I will do some sort of wall art with some of it. I have been meaning to for ages and it would be a shame to hide some of the lovely things away.

I am also not sure who my secret santa was but I would hazard a guess at Steph. I got some stickers, printed card blanks and papers. Thank you very much.

I also got a wonderful card organiser book, a page for every month of the year with a pocket for cards and a handmade card in each pocket already. At the top of each page there are lots of photos of forum members. I love it, thank you!!

Glad you liked the box and bits Alison.

If someone could confirm who my SS was, it would be appreciated thanks.

That sound a great book, any pics Helen?
Here's a pic of what Maria sent me, although it doesn't do justice at all, there is a pattern on the scarf and the earrings are quite detailed, you can see that it is all very yummy though, thank you Maria, sorry I didn't get it out of the shed sooner and let you know it had come.

Love those socks! If I'd known dawn could knit socks i'd have asked her to knit Garry a pair of garish ones at it is a joke between us that I'd find him a huge pair of hideous socks for his clown size feet!

Yes, Helen. Steph was your SS.

Kim, yours was Jo.

Glad you liked yours, Ruth. I was going to do something 'cute' but just didn't have the stuff, so I thought you were worth using my Blue Awning. Mr Green

Mine was....SCATTY!!!! Thanks millions, hun. I got blossoms, page clips, jewels, mini calendar, flower beads, metal words and a little box full of all sorts of embellies from magnets to brads, to charms. My hand made gift was a decorated egg box, bull of Cadbuys's Cream Eggs. Jumping for Joy

Thanks, hun. I loved it. Mr Green Mr Green Mr Green

It was because I recognised all the photos as being from the forum except yours!! Thank you for the card book. I'm sorry you thought I was quite difficult- I thought I would be quite easy as I love anything handmade!- I have already got plans for at least one of the cards as one of my best friend's from uni has just had a baby boy.

I only thought it would be difficult because you are in the craft
business. There can't be much you haven't got or seen.
However, I enjoyed making the book up. My photo did come off
the forum, but it wasn't on the retreat link - was elsewhere, so that
was a lucky guess Laughing Laughing
