I really hope all of thes children received their bags from me!  could you mamas  please let me know???



Well, here’s what I got back…

this was for Felicity’s stocking.  she’s 6½ years old. 

mermaid doll from Beth @ Road to Joy

eye spy bottle from MaryLea @ Pink and Green Mama

christmas cracker  from Lorena @ Through the Eyes of a Yak

mini owl scarf from ???

tangram set from Amy Worsham

lion lacing card from Carrie @ Between Hitching Posts

Updated Jan 2nd…  I didn’t use the lion lacing card  because it’s more appropriate for a 2-3 year old. 


This was for Samantha’s stocking.  she just turned 9. 

flower pin from Jill Messner

christmas cracker  from Lorena @ Through the Eyes of a Yak

sweet package (includes PeaceFleece wool wet felted balls, all wool crocheted bracelet, Colorado fur pinecone, Colorado Oak acorns and top, Glenwood Springs, Colorado polished rock, and a vintage card…) from Maria (her flickr)

California notebook, walnut with candle in, and the colored pencils in roll-up are from Belinda @ Every “Hill” You Climb…

cat lacing card from Carrie @ Between Hitching Posts

Updated Jan 2nd…  I did not use the lacing card for my 9 year old either.   I used the California notebook with one of her presents instead of in her stocking (thank you Belinda)  which she loves to draw in.    


I received a package from Australia 2 days before Christmas that had one more stocking stuffer for each of my girl’s stockings.

aren’t those Tomten bags the cutest thing!?

Each bag contained a matching game from Abigail


if any of these are from you, can you please let me know so you can get credit for making these????

  2. Hi Missy,

    I’m glad you got your box, I’m still waiting for mine and worried that I won’t have anything for the girls’ stockings on Christmas morning.
    Enjoy the I-SPY bottle and I liked your suggestions on the group email!! I sure hope I get one of your adorable Mushroom bags – they are just darling!

    Merry Christmas : )

    Hi Melissa,

    I am responsible for the flower pin. I hope it is being enjoyed! They were very fun to make.

    Hi there~ I made the California Notebook, Colored Pencil Roll, and Walnut Candle.
    I hope they came together in the cello bag with our information attached? Hmmm…You have me thinking that I too would love to know where all or my kiddos originated from. Hope your lil’ one enjoys everything and Happy Holidays 🙂

  5. I made the lace-uo cards & Amy Worsham made the tangram. Enjoy!

  6. I got the same adorable matching game from Australia yesterday and it’s just adorable!! I love the Gnome bag : )
    Wishing you a happy and creative 2010!!
