Ok, girls.. the packages are starting to come in. I finally broke into the boxes today in the interest of conserving space as they were forming a wall at our entryway. I have carefully unpacked, shaken, sniffed and taunted the pets with each parcel and here is a break down of what has been received as of today....
#1 from the lovely MizSmoochieLips. Tia's packages are wrapped in sheet music which is very appropriate as these packages sure jingle.
# 5 are these intriguing long tubes from Tammy which clink when rattled. There are lovely hand stamped tags on these made from her stash of vintage wallpapers.
#9 are these wrapped plaid packages from Jeanne. They are rectangular in shape, with hard edges but kind of squishy in the center. Very intriguing!
#11 comes from my pal Martha.. these traveled all the way from Canada in record time. Martha sewed fabulous packets for her squishy offering. I am loving the package and I am dying to peek at what is inside!
Finally, Kari has gift #12 which are flat packages that do not make any sort of sound. They have some bulky areas so they are interesting to guess at.
All in all a nice selection of varied shapes, sounds and textures. I will keep everyone posted as the other packages come in. So far, nothing smells like poo.. phew!
I am anxious to get everything in and turned around so you can set up nice little piles under your trees or in your studios. Currently I have Wednesday set aside to pack of outgoing mail with the help of Shosh. I will keep everyone updated!
