Day 11, 12, and Christmas Day!

We had to skip over Day 10, we are not sure what happened to the person with day 10, we all just hope she is OK. So, on to Day 11!

This was from Carolyn A,

It must have taken an incredible amount of patience and time to cut this all out - it's beautiful!! I have it as the background for my Nativity, but I think I'll have to use it for my small Nativity next year. I love it!

Day 12

Our last day of the swap. This has been so much fun! This one was made by Kristy, and is beautiful!

Inside was a double slide mailer, the kind where the box is as good as the insides!

Here is the inside with 2 removable ornaments

which are now hanging on my tree! What a great idea Kristy!

Day 13. . .

Now I can tell you what I got on my day, Day 4! Our hostess, Mary-Beth, was in charge of the days where we gave our gifts, and therefore would not have one to open. I had to keep it a secret, because everyone opened her gift on a different day.

It is a Button Angel!! Very pretty, and is sitting in my tree.

Thank you M-B, and all the participants in this year's 12 Days Swap.
I hope I'm in on the next one!

And now for Christmas Day pressies!

My wonderful DH and DD were very generous as always, and got me piles of new things to play with! I'm sure these will last me until next December!!

Still collecting the Distress Inks!
And I've wanted a distresser for quite awhile now! plus
a cool ATC background stamp!

Love these masks - now I have them all I think!

Grungeboard! Finally!

Love these stamps!

and these!!
And yes, I now have 2 crow stamps,
one Mounted and one UM! How decadent!!

Wow! I've already used some of the sprocket gears on my January journal page!

I love the paint daubers, wasn't sure at first, but now I know they will be indispensable!!
Haven't tried the Stickles yet.

Aren't they the best DD and DH? And my birthday is on
Thursday. . . I know there's more!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, best wishes for an
awesome New Year!!

I am laughing because your Christmas looked a lot like mine! My SIL, niece and I asked for a BUNCH of Tim stuff for Christmas and we were not disappointed! Every Timmmyyyyyyyy (that's what we call him) gift we received we screamed Timmmmmyyyy in high girlie voices - I think others in our family thought we were crazy - but for us it was GREAT!!! I even received his two DVDs.... We are all feeling like very lucky women!!!! And I can see that you are also! Happy Timmmyyyy day to you!!! (PS - visiting from All Things Tim)

HO HO HO - aren't you lucky to have a husband and daughter who pay attention and know what you would like. Lucky girl - things don't work like that in this house!! I am very happy for you.

Wow! You hit the mother lode. Love everything and I would like to have everything! Look forward to what you do with the grunge.

Wow , you got a lot of beautiful handmade gifts !!

I had to smile when I saw all the other "Tim" gifts you got...
I treated myself for a lot of his stuff and made most of his Christmas tags this vacation.
You can see the tags and my variations on his tags ( I don't own ALL his stuff...) on my blog . Feel free to pass by to see them...

I also bought a few of his masks and the swirl is my favorite !

Have looooots of fun and let your creativity flow !
greetings from Belgium ( found you on All Things Tim)

I'm eaten up with envy - I haven't even seen all the Tim Holtz stuff over here in the UK yet. Never mind get it all.

However, I shall be strong and try to conduct myself with dignity (waaaaaaah!)
