I have a little catching up to do. On December 1st, my "25 Days of Christmas" started. In one of my art groups, 25 of us joined this gift swap. We each made a giftie for each artist. We each were assigned a day (mine is the 15th of December) that our gifts will be opened by everyone else.
I had planned on sharing the gifts I received on a daily basis, but am already a few days behind. I will try to catch up here.
First, I must say what fun it was to open the mailbox over several days and find little surprise packages. I could hear the little jingle bell inside tingling. Such fun! I put all of the wrapped gifts in a Christmas suitcase that I have and they are sitting on my dining room table just waiting to be opened.
1st Day of Christmas - Robin (Yooper) made these beautiful blue button fairies. Just gorgeous. A great addition to the Christmas tree.
2nd Day of Christmas - A beautiful beaded acrylic ribbon necklace. I love the metal bead/finding that she used for the tree. Really nice.
3rd Day of Christmas - Autumn made this adorable wooden heart shaped Santa ornaments. Santa is hiding behind the bow, but he is there watching to see who is naughty and nice.
4th Day of Christmas - Claudia sent out these beautiful foil cards. Inside was an embossed library pocket and lace Christmas ornaments. I'm not sure, but the foil silver card appears to be colored with alcohol ink. Also, clever idea with the libray pocket... embossed in the Cuttblebug.
5th Day of Christmas - Ellen altered these darling (and very useful) mini-composition books. Really wel done. Love it!
I plan to be here each day to update you with all of the little gifties I open. Until tomorrow...
