The holidays were great this year. The best thing about it was spending time with family and friends, but I have to admit the presents were pretty exciting too! haha The pictures you see here are various things that were gifts this year. I love this pin my cousin gave me-it's a 4 women pin to symbolize the 4 of us that are close in the family. She is so special to me and she always finds great gifts that touch my heart. She was also the one who had the picture created for me by an asian artist. The picture is actually embroidered. The detail amazes me, and so does she. Next up is pictures of some of the stuff by Tim Holtz. I love his stuff so was thrilled with all of this. The snowflake candle stuff I picked out, but as a present for me. I can use this more next year. Actually, since we expect more snow I could just leave it out now. I also am the proud owner of a new plush robe, and slippers to match. Ooh I love the feel of this thing so much. it makes me want to snuggle up forever. My boyfriend also picked out some lovely jewelry this year. A lovely set of swirl jewelry from Eastern Serenity. I knew I was getting the necklace, but the earrings, and bracelet were a real surprise. He also had me a stocking filled with lots of candy, cd's, calendars, and some pictures of us in a frame. His family also got me some bath and body works stuff. I love the snow kiss berry lotion-yum! I also had several pen pals that have sent goodies they have made, some stamps and one pen pal made me this wonderful little crocheted tea pot that holds tea bags-how totally adorbale! All in all it has been a wonderful healthy happy holiday season, and for that I am thankful.
