I don't know my Secret Santa's forum name (just his real one), but I do know that he's German and one of the best gift-givers to ever give me a gift.
He sent me a beautiful red sketchbook, padded with delicious German chocolate bars which were almost eaten before I could snap a photo. When I opened the sketchbook, I saw he'd pasted his own awesome Santa paintings on the front and back inside covers. The whole thing says, "Here's some of my art, now add yours! Just don't smear the pages with melted chocolate."
Touching, useful, and tasty. Thank you, Santa!
Check out my Sketchbook and I promise I'll return the favor.
MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! Yaaaaaay!! So, my bro has the GOOD camera...I have my phone. Heh...I opened the gift that octopus_interphone (love the name) gave me!! *squee* Opened it with my other gifts. Here it is!! Don't mind my hair, goes with the noise in the picture! XD
We had quite a laugh with the tape! Mom exclaimed at one point, "You're STILL not done opening that??" Ha ha! Oh, but I'm so happy!!!!
Oooh, look closer! It's a jellyfish!! @_@
And it's inside, too!
Indeed we're gonna have another long winter, so I'll be getting a good number of hot drinks to keep me warm! This will help quite nicely! I LOVE it so much!! You did excellent with it! @_@ To make such a wonderfully round cup is just...MAN!!
Glad you like it Brain!! The background is black tea

The Spaniard's Sketchbook... No holds barred
Im sure my recipient got this as I remember him posting that he recieved the package a while ago but didnt open it. Im just gonna jump the gun and post it up myself
Merry Christmas everyone!
EDIT: This was scanned before I took the page out I didnt send off the whole sketchbook!
I'm glad you liked it PlasmaErnst!
Thanks so much for the awesome fish painting! I really like the distinctive mark making in the watercolor. And I definitely appreciate the fact that it came all the way across the Atlantic. Here are a couple shots of me and the painting in my home studio, where I intend to hang it when I get a decent frame.
Yeah I hope I get mine this week. When the post office wakes up again after weekend slumber.
I got mine a few days ago, I was waiting to get my camera back to get a picture of it.
Thank you so much, rossipoo! I was blown away when I opened it - I wasn't expecting something so elaborate. Merry belated Christmas and a happy new year!
I just found out the person I sent my gift to is away for the holidays - it's going UPS, so I don't know if it will be delivered or returned to me. I will post a picture of it, since there is no telling when she will get it -
This was my gift to NMartin. Merry Christmas!
I'm still waiting for my gifts to be recieved. I really hope they make it over to the other side of the pond safely.
Plus I'm checking my mailbox everyday. Nothing in it yet. :/
Lovely pictures and gifts all!
Hugs and kisses from Em!
Beware, it's a crappy Sketchbook.
"We are all heroes! You and me and Boo..."
Just got mine! here it is.
Thank you so much Absoloot! I love it, i think i will hang it on my wall for inspiration
I'm getting worried mine didn't arrive... even though i thought i sent it pretty early. I hope when it does that it is in good condition.
Best of luck to you all i'm looking forward on doing this again next year
I actually got this Christmas Eve but had to skip town before I could post.
Dude, this is awesome! How did you know I like cute/morbid combinations? I'm gonna hang it on my wall!
LuckyDevil-Glad you like it and that it arrived safe!
This just got in from *******, USA. Thank you very much Zwarrior for the gift! I'm a little surprised at the perviness, but er, we'll let that one pass i guess. Mine hasn't seemed to have arrived at its destination yet, and it's been two weeks and a half, so i'm starting to get a little worried. Anyone know if mail services in Virginia have been disrupted lately?
Well, haven't rec'd mine yet and no word if my recipient rec'd theirs. Totally bummed by that; but joyous over what everyone else has been receiving!
Im glad you like it Walnut, I took a risk since I didnt know who the recipient was, but when you hinted that you appreciate women, I took the opportunity to explore my persception of feminine sexuality.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Dandelion!!!!!!!!!!! i got your gift, i took some pictures of it on a Friends camera and I'm waiting for him to send the photos to me.
Though I am not a man who normally appreciates delicately crafted adorable little teddy dolls, I genuinely like this guy . Ridiculous pictures to follow... also the card was nice too.
Nryx buddy you alive and out there? My package should of made it over by now!? I might just post the pictures of what i sent, its been a long while now.
zwarrior: And i do appreciate them, no doubt about that! I'm not that easily offended anyway.
I sent a PM to my giftee, asking if she/he got it. No reply. I'm pretty sure it should have arrived by now. I'll wait until after New Year's and maybe I'll just go ahead and post the picture I sent.
