I'm totally out of it, or at least I'm predicting that I'll be totally out of it, based on previous experience, so I'm writing this now to post later.
I've signed up to "Whore My Loot!" , but if I'm posting this as an alternative, it's just cuz I'm not feeling up to taking pictures (or typing... or probably doing anything except staring into space and remembering to press the "post" button). I'll get around to my own, received loot later, but how'd you like to see what I gave out this year instead?
I'm kinda proud of a lot of my gifts this year: having used my good sense & not spent big time $$$; having gotten very specific and individualized presents, and having discovered the joys of Esty, I really felt like this year I did particularly well.
So here's some of what I'm planning to give tomorrow (or... rather, have given and been exclaimed over!)
I spent the year picking up bargains on DVDs for Older/Only Brother, of movies that we'd enjoyed growing up. Here's a few:
For SisterJ, I got a print of an angel statue, sleeping:
And a print called "If Humpty Dumpty was a girl" from Esty artist, the Dreamy Giraffe, whose artwork I lurve...
So much so that I also ordered:
For Youngest/Only Niece:
For Her mama, STB Sister-in-law:
(Ahem... I may have also kept one for myself... ya never know.)
I wanted to keep SisterK's present for myself, but I bravely wrapped it up instead:
Isn't it gorgeous? It's also from Esty, from Little Dear, totally droolworthy prints, I promise.
Lil Girl/Only Niece also got the latest adventure of her favorite animal:
College Roommate/Best Friend got a framed photo of her daughter & Lil Girl, having a blast over the summer:
And SisterCh got yet another Esty find, a Monopoly necklace. Monopoly is her favorite game... it's kind of an obsession. So, hopefully she'll love this too:
There's more, but it's Christmas Eve and I'm still wrapping, so I'll type more later. Since I'm meant to post this on the 27th, I hope you all have had a fabulous, peaceful holiday.
I should be checking in soon.
