Santa's TSG Swap Elf

Santa enlists all kinds of people to act as elves during the holiday season. You just never know who they will be! Well, this year I discovered one of them was my TSG swap partner. See, the return address proves it!I could not picture what might be hiding in this HUGE package. (CD case for scale)Imagine my delight to discover that Santa knows I celebrate Hanukkah and wrapped my package accordingly. And so on the eighth and final day of Hanukkah when all the candles are lit, I received eight yarny candles ablaze on the back of a tremendous shawl!According to the note it took an entire month to design and create. The work is so detailed! She even made the candle flames a bright yellow in contrast to the golden menorah. I am overwhelmed by her generosity.

Thank you so much to my personal elf!
