On the 12th Day of Christmas....

our DT sisters gave to us.....

Christmas SOCKS!!!!!!
This 12 Days of Christmas event is now closed.
And we had so much fun with our DT sock swap that we thought we would share our fun with everyone for our 12th Day of Christmas.

The idea was originally brought to the team from Sammi. And the whole team jumped at the idea to send a fun Christmas package to our other DT sisters. So Sammi drew names and the shopping began. Of course we have been planning this since November because many of our DT sisters are in such different areas of the world. We knew it would take longer for Santa to make that early trip for this special delivery.

As it turns out Santa ran into a terrible blizzard over the ocean so a few of our DT sisters haven't gotten their packages yet. Even Rudolph couldn't guide Santa through this storm! But never fear. When the packages arrive we will do another fun post to show all of our socks.

Here are our pictures.
These are Shelly's super cute Snowman socks!

Stephanie took a picture of one pair on each foot (I should have thought of that!) Very stylish!
These are the socks that Pandy's Santa delivered. Such festive red and green.
Poor Darlene's little tootsies are freezing. Santa hasn't visited her house yet. She has been stalking the mailman for days though.

Here are Heather's cute socks. I wonder if these are home made?
These are Min's wonderful Christmas socks. Looks like Min is all relaxed with a tin of cookies.

Here is Sammi's cozy, comfy, warm and fuzzy socks.

Amanda's feet are dressed just like Santa.

We still haven't shared who are secret Santa's are. But I know we will have such fun chatting and skyping about all the fun stuff we got in our Christmas packages.

Since today is sadly our 12th day of Christmas we want to give you one more chance to join in on the fun. How? Just send us a picture of your Christmas stockings. The picture could be your actual Christmas stocking, a favorite pair of Christmas socks or shoes, your old trusty slippers. Anything you want to share. You can post a link to your blog post in our comments here or you can email the picture directly to Shelly ( Be sure to put "Christmas Stockings" in your email subject line.

At least one random winner will win their choice of THREE images from the Shelly's Images store. That is certainly worth getting the camera out to snap a few pictures.

Thanks SO MUCH to everyone for joining us for our 12 Days of Christmas event. I have had such fun getting emails and reading comments. I am really sad to see our event come to an end.

Remember you still have today to enter most of our fun games. Here are the links for Days 1 - 9. Most of our games will end at midnight tonight. And all winners will be chosen tomorrow.

UPDATE - Sharon sent me an email with her Christmas stocking.  I wanted to share it here with everyone since Sharon doesn't have a blog.  I just love the story behind this special Christmas stocking.  And I thank Sharon for allowing me to share the picture and story.

Hi Shelly
    I have so enjoyed your 12 Days of Christmas, I do not have a blog.  This stocking is at least 53 years old, one of moms neighbors made it for me when we were in Alaska, we lived their till I was 6. So every year when I bring the kids stocking out mine is added to the pile.

Thank You

The story is so meaningful and special.  And I think that the memories and special moments are exactly what Christmas is all about.  Thanks so much to Sharon for sharing this special stocking with us.
