Notebooks, owls, and Gold Scissors…

Wow, it’s a new year! Now is the time to ask everyone you know:

– What did you get for Christmas this year?

If they say “I got this or that” you know how to answer;

– What?!!! This year? But Christmas haven’t even happened yet!


That’s the Repeating Joke in my family, year after year… Nobody is fooled these days – but we all still try. Today I just wanted to show you the stuff I got this year for Christmas 2009 in images.

Here they are:

Polkadot papers wrapped up with string, these are a few of my favorite things…

If you give me an a cute owl I think you know me well! I got a necklace from my friend Maria and a owl print from my cousin Lotta for Christmas this year. I need to get a frame for the turquoise one – the color of the year! Love them both!

Maria made a friend’s kid a little monster and when i saw it on her blog I asked her to make me one too. So this guy was custom made for me, and when I saw him it was Monster love at first sight! Now, I need to find him a name. Any suggestions?

Do you remember the Photoshoped Pink Wish List I made? I didn’t get anything from that list but mom noticed the embroidery scissors and my wish for sparkly embroidery floss – so I got both. Not the kind that looks like a bird, but a pair of small and very sharp golden scissors – with case and chain to wear around your neck when you sew. I adore it!

  1. How about bubbles? He needs a cute name as he is a cute monster.I got some books,pitt pens box set, alphabet stamps, a atomical horse model and a few more lil goodies…

  2. Of course, I have to comment on Smilla! My little Kin is lying in exactly the same way right now, a little ball of fur. Sweet and sweet.

    You got some great loot for the holidays. This year, we decided not to exchange gifts, but to spend time together and buy ourselves what we needed. So far, I’ve bought lots of socks, especially the kind that go over the knee, and a toy Diana lens for my DSLR.

    Keep warm!

  3. Oooh, someone must have been quite a good girl to get all that fabulous stuff for Christmas LAST year! Hehe, that’s totally a silly joke you all have! =cD

    I will add my suggestion of name for the lil’ monster…how about Mochi Monster? (Could be pronounced Mochee or Mokee?) I bought some wool yarn recently called Mini Mochi that I just LOVED because it was so soft and colorful. The company’s mascot is a Scottish Fold cat named Mochi and they named the yarn after him/her because it was soft as a kitten! Here’s a link :

    We were technically not going to exchange gifts this year to save money but everyone found sneaky ways of getting around it. There weren’t lots of gifts this year, but what we received was thoughtful!
    My family put in together to get me a sewing machine (so now I can try to make some of the pretty projects you’ve shared!) and lots of little supplies for art journaling…another obsession thanks to you, lol. ( I just realized this!)

    Happy, happy! ;))

  4. Wonderful presents! I don?t know, I immediately thought that your little monster looks like a Fred.
    I got surprisingly many presents, I don?t expect much, since I?m single and very grown up, but I got quite a pile. No fun creative presents, but still good: lots of tea, a book, lip balm in a pinup tin, among others. And apparently have more presents to receive – lovely!

  5. The first name that poped into my head for the monster is Stewy (short for Stewart.) I have no idea why.

    You got lots of stuff! Very cool. The only crafty thing I received was Red Heart Eco-Ways yarn. Two skeins. Oh and a photo frame with a sort of paper pad as the frame so you can doodle around the photo. The other things were cookbooks, socks, DVDs and money.

    I think I’ll have to try and make myself a little monster too! I have tons of old clothes waiting to be reused for something else…


  6. The first name that came to my head was Sleepy, because of his eyes. He’s so appealing. I am coveting your scissors and the embroidery thread! I rec’d a very comfortable chair for my studio and a reading lamp to put beside it. The best gift? Having my kids get safely home the week before christmas and mere hours before a huge snow blizzard. Happy New Year, Hanna

  7. Gorgeous, gorgeous things! And yes on more creative projects. Looking forward to what you might have in mind.

    On the name of your monster… Well, PATCHES came to mind when I saw him/her/it? :-)
