Sorry about the delay, but have had problems with Polly and her black eye yesterday, so we were at the vets for rather a while :-(

Hopefully OH and me (as DD is still away) will send you your PM's later tonight, if not we will send them tomorrow 😊

Terribly sorry everyone but my abilities are limited - unlike all those wonderfully crafty peeps on here and I've already begun my 'swaps'; as Magnus Magnusson so memorably said, I've started so I'll finish ;) Just hope that my limited offerings are acceptable and I'll just be awed by others abilities and happy with what the Omlet elves send ...in the true spirit of Christmas :dance:! Can't wait to see who is my swapee - OOOOOh, exciting!

Ok, hopefully everyone should have the details of who their swap person is 😊

If you could all send me your addresses on the PM that would be great.

Cat tails, as you know, I do have yours already - I tend to shred the others so don't have them year on year.

Also, could you let me know if I haven't sent you a PM please, just in case I lost anyone ?

Get busy everyone 🎄🎄🎄🎄

Forgot to ask for you to put whether you would like to be called your Omlet name or your proper name on your parcels ?

and me ready to get making now.  Have actually begun. 

Love your answers fat lot of help :lol: but have any of you questions that could guide your choices?

Make me a corn dolly Valky :)  Mullehunter I'll make you something lovely.  I loved my wyandottes too so pretty.  Catstails how can a million water snails be pets, hope you have names for them all.  I'll let you work out how to castrate your trees. :o  Luvachick you can't have pekins as your favourites they are so squarky and yell all day.ok they look cute.  Hellis I'll be making you something in wild pink.  Ursula you can't dislike purple!  Please can you make me a quiet pekin.  Soapy your wood and stone craft sound interesting have you posted about them anywhere?

Oh bless you Plum, I don't think they are interesting enough to post about! I 'did' wood for last year (hope that's not giving too much away!) I seem unable to manage anything to do with a needle, thread or wool though and am in huge awe of those who can! I really love seeing pics of all the swaps...are we allowed to open them as soon as they arrive or must we wait until 25th? The temptation is massive and I have the breaking strain of a warm Mars bar :$

When I took my fishies out of the pond, I must have had a few hitchhiking snails. They REALLY like it in the aquarium, so I now have a lot of snails.

Wow they clean the tank don't they?  It looks really green and lush for your fish.

You can open them when you want but most of us wait until Christmas (or don't post pictures until Christmas :lol:).  Sometimes there are instructions to open them straight away :)

And if you are tempted be warned - bubble wrap is plentiful in this house so no shaking rattling and rolling will work!:lol:  

Soapy - grateful for whatever comes my way - because it was made from the heart.  As I tell my two, make me something - worth much more than money can buy!  But they usually hit Amazon anyway. :roll:

I think my corn dolly would look like Groot!
