The Material Girl's 12 Days of Christmas...

On the first day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me...a Porsche parked beside my front door.

On the second day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me...two Gucci bags...

On the third day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me...three weeks in Europe...

On the forth day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me...four Visa Gold Cards...

On the fifth day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me...five gold mines...

On the sixth day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me...six shining mansions...

On the seventh day of Christmas,
My true love gave to liveried servants...

On the eighth day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me...eight maids for downstairs...

On the ninth day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me...nine maids for upstairs

On the tenth day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me...ten full length mink coats...

On the eleventh day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me...eleven diamond bracelets...

On the twelfth day of Christmas,
My true love said to me..."Honey, I'm broke."

"Give back the bracelets and the full length mink coats,
Fire all the servants, foreclose on the mansions, and the gold mines.

Four Visa Gold Cards won't pay for Europe,
Or the Gucci bags..."

But if he thinks that car is going anywhere, he's got another think coming,
'Cause the Porsche stays beside my front door!

Thank you, Scarlett...

...for another great swap!
My Secret Santa is Scarlett, who was my last swap partner. She sent me so many wonderful goodies...
BTW...That yarn is to die for...

I am so blessed by my new friends at Harry Potter Crafts at Yahoo!Groups. I never knew I could have so many friends that I have never met. Their encouragement and idea sharing has been a source of almost daily joy!

I have enough project ideas to last me till the next millenium!

I always thought those who looked for friends online were desperate, lonely people, but I think I have misjudged. The internet is a tool for expanding one's friendships. There is a vast pool of people out there that we may not ever have the chance to meet, but through the miracle of online communications, we can stretch out to places we will never go, and "meet" people we will never see. Shared interests can bring together a world of friends that can be found in no other way.

So, this Christmas season, I have a whole new world of friends, and I wish you all a very Happy Christmas, and may you be blessed as I have been.

Secret Santa Revealed...

I can now show you all what I sent to Linda, aka woozelmom. I must admit I did not want to send all those goodies. I wanted to keep them for myself. Now I have said it and you know of my selfishness...
Well, anyway... I sent:
3 boxes of ornaments from Doodad and Frippery, Diagon Alley

2 boxes of candy- Droobles Best blowing gum--

and Weasley's Wizard Wheezes Skiving Snack Selection--

1 candy jar from Honeydukes Sweetshop--,

filled with Sherbet Lemon drops, candy canes, pop rocks (a quaint muggle candy) and Gummy Frogs.

The ornaments were:
--Mini Weasley sweaters-- in red, green, blue, purple, and one Chudley Cannons in vivid orange.

-- Mini socks-Harry's dirty sock complete with mini Tom Riddle Diary (including fang holes and ink stains)

--The two socks Dobby gave Harry for Christmas-- one red with broomsticks, and one green with snitches

--The other sock Dobby wore with Harry's sock that was orange and pink striped
--and a stack of mini hats like those Dobby wore when returning Hedwig to Harry from Madame Grubbly-Plank, complete with knitted Hedwig on top.
--I also made 6 snitch ornaments.

All of this was packed in a box I got from WaldenBooks when I got my copy of Half-Blood Prince.
And I am so glad that Linda liked all my stuff, and it made her day brighter.

Now I have to go out and wait for my gifts... (sigh)

I'm a Ravenclaw!
