So glad you got it safely (I too worry that a box might be misplaced or taken!)

Honestly a few years ago I probably couldn't have spent money on a Steelers anything. I'm mellowing in my older age and knew it would make you smile Glad you liked everything. I had fun shopping for you again too!

I have always wanted to be her buddy because she is the kindest, caring, funny and momma of pupparoos that I never met.
She more than outdid herself this year for me. For my family for making me so thankful. The thought process for this swap was so special. From softness to scents to letters to my pupparoos, to bears, to shell shaped chocolates i just cant tell you about it all because I will cry again. Even the pups got their own boxes! Thank you so so much. I will attach photos.

Just forgive me if i got these tags right, I loved every single one of them but can't remember which was which.

Xsmall was three glorious shades of nail polish
Small was a totally adorable Bear Christmas runner
Medium - Cranberry cut out blouse that i wil wear on Christmas
Large- Sterling Silver gorgeous hoops for ears that have not had nice earings in my ears since I moved here to NC
XLARGE- Diamond Paw sterling necklace!!! Could this be any cuter?
XLARGE - Soft, gorgeous soft mushy plush Blanket for my new living space. (2 living rooms, 2 bedrooms plenty of places to place it. Edie also included two books that she has written about Bigfoot which i know nothing about but will dive into shortly after I eat all my handmade christmas cookies.

Of the extras included were two kalidescopes one for me and one for my sister. Chocolate Fudge and funfetti vanilla cake smuckers shell, Zots for scrapbooking, swiss miss cocoa in four flavors, the most adorable white dancing dog that i wanted but could not afford that looks just like my Beary, Colring books and pencils, white and pink furry socks that im putting on now, country faith christmas music cd, chocolate fudge in a block, a christmas lint brush which i would never have bought myself but wanted, sea shell canidies, four stuffed christmas creatures for my pups and so much more. I love it all.

Ok, the pupparoos got their own box and toys! Each one of them opened their own toy, and of course Beary thought the ribbon and the plastic was the toy of course. The thing he was not suppose to touch. That boy will give me heart failure.
From Chocolate Seashells to foot soak, body soak for this body filled with fibro and lyme, cozy time teas, fun scrap things to use on a journal i am going to make, happy pencil sharpeners with my colored pencils and coloring books, I can go on and on and on. I love it. I just love the thought that went into this swap.
I am so happy you liked everything! I had such fun shopping for you, especially knowing you're a devoted doggy mom, like me! It's so funny, you say the dancing dog looks like Bear because that's why I bought it! I thought it looked like your dog! LOL! Enjoy everything and have a very Merry Christmas, my new friend!

thank you!
My swap box is here!!! Thank you irish501/Laurie for the the gifts! I opened the box to see who the sender is & Laurie had wrapped each gift in red paper with white polka dots but I have not opened the gifts yet. The "extras" were not wrapped so I took a peek to check them out A delightful "Lil" 2016 Snowflake Bear & a green plush stocking filled to the very top! The stocking has a "J" keyring, Reese's Mini p-nut butter cups in a candy cane, Junior Mints, Reese's p-nut butter trees, huge Mint Holiday stick, 2 pink & 2 green candy canes, Blistex Raspberry Lemonade Blast & Blistex Orange Mango Blast! With all these extras, I am so excited to open my gifts but will wait, I think!And, she included a trash bag for all of the wrapping paper, good idea btw, I am going to send one too when I mail the kids gifts tomorrow!
Thanks again Laurie & may your Christmas be a joyful celebration!
Janice

Woo-hoo!! Got my box today from my buddy tinamarina71. Thank you for everything. I received:

XL -- Seahawks!! Fuzzy socks, and 2 ornaments, a black ball and a cute high heel shoe. Already on my tree.

L -- 3 piece red flameless candle set with timer. Will look great on my mantle with a few Christmas lights.

M -- Expandable silver heart bracelet. Will go well with some silver earrings I already have.

S -- Beef stick. Hubby has already claimed it!

XS -- Kitchen gadgets. A mini cutting board, an egg separator, and a set of adjustable measuring spoons. I've been on a baking kick lately so I will use them often.

Extras -- 2 packages of Almond Roca, one already gone. Blistex Raspberry Lemonade lip balm, 2 boxes of tea, variety and Chai. A red scarf that almost perfectly matches my raincoat, and a photo album which will be used for our first grandbaby due in March.

Thank you for everything and I hope you have a happy holiday season!

WOW! Spoiled Rotten!
Suzanne772 loaded my box with so many wonderful things and I LOVE every one of them! OMG! Suzanne, you really are the best swap buddy! Here are the things I received:

xs: Finding Dory "Hank" Sticker
s: 2 pairs of Christmas socks, I love them! I can never have enough holiday socks!
m: Mango Sugar Scrub for my hooves, can't wait until morning to slather it on in the shower!
l: What a HOOT! A SpongeBob Squarepants Lunch Box Ornament! This is to die for!! It is hanging on our tree. I just LOVE It and it was wrapped in SpongeBob paper! Too cool.
xl: OK, I live in Oregon, it rains here like EVERY day and do I have an umbrella? NO. When I was younger, I just ran to get out of it...now, my running days are numbered I got the most beautiful Totes umbrella with colorful raindrops all over it and, I am in luck, its going to rain all week, wait all month, wait all next year. I will use it constantly.

And for extras, geez, a large mug stuffed to overflowing with hot chocolate, gonna make a cup as soon as I get through posting my loot!
An adult coloring book, so excited to fill my downtime with this fun book. Well, when I am not entering sweeps, of course!
Mascara! I can now toss my old tube, maybe that pesky eye infection will go away. Can't wait. Kidding! haha
Tweezers! YES! For those strays you feel at work and have nothing to attack them with!
Lipgloss/Lipstick duo, in a great pinky shade, can't wait to put some color on my face!
A very cute stuffed penguin, sitting under the tree as we speak!
A very nice large Merry Christmas Wishes hanging sign. I didn't decorate this year, as my DH had hip replacement surgery a couple days before Thanksgiving and all our decorations are in the attic and I ain't going up there! (I did buy a fake decorated tree though. ) So, this beautiful sign will have front and center attention around here. Whew! I feel so spoiled and lucky to have Suzanne772 as my swap buddy. Everything was wrapped so nice and I really am appreciative at your shopping prowess and efforts. Thank you. A very Merry Christmas to you! Vickie (viclen1954)
