Another swap received

This came a few days ago, along with a handmade card. It's from Narelle over at Nell's Notions. A cute little snowman ornie! Can't wait to hang it on our tree when we put it up, probably on Tuesday. My kids are eager to put it up! Thank you for this sweet ornament, Narelle!!

Received another swap

This is actually from a secret swap I participated in, in a forum called Crow's Creek Primitives Gathering Forum - we didn't know who would send us an ornament. Well, this one is from Deb, and her website is Crow's Creek Primitives. I was just in awe when I opened this up, because it's quite a nice size, and the snowflakes are made from wax and smell devine. I was actually surprised this got through Customs/Quarrantine, because it has dried plant material in it. Thankfully it did though. Anyway, here it is...

Thank you so much, Deb! It's beautiful!

Got a card made

Well, I got a Christmas card made. It's not prim, just something nice. I won't put a photo of it on here yet until after I send my swap off and my swap partner receives it. Don't want to spoil anything incase she just happens to look here. :-)

Thanks to those of you who left comments on my card post with ideas for me. :-)

Need to make a handmade Christmas card

For a ornie swap I am doing, I am supposed to make a handmade Christmas card to go along with it. Eeeeek! I have never done anything like that before, and don't even have anything to make a card with. It's quite daunting to me, because I have no idea what I am going to make. Anyone have any nice and simple ideas?

No more ornie swap sign-ups.

Thank you to those of you who have contacted me about doing an ornie swap! I've contacted everyone who has wanted to swap with me, and still waiting to hear back from one more person, as I only just saw her request. :-)

I'd love to take more people, but due to the fact we are trying to get our house ready to sell around the end of this month, I'm going to be busy with that, plus getting the rest of these ornies finished.

Thank you again, everyone! I am really looking forward to receiving your ornies! My tree will be extra special this year! :-)

The first of my ornie swaps

Yesterday I received the first of my Christmas ornie swaps. This is from Loretta, over at Under the Wild Cherry Trees.

Aren't these little guys just the cutest? I absolutely LOVE them. I'm such a sucker for snowmen!!!! Thank you so much, Loretta, for these sweeties! You did a fantastic job on them, and I can't wait til we get our tree up and I can hang these up!

Still here

Sorry I haven't posted for a while. I've been so busy with house stuff, and I haven't made a single craft item. Plus my hubby has been home the past few weeks so we can get some things done around the house before he goes back to work. So nothing is new in my shop right now. I hope I can get around to making something soon.
