Tag Swap & Gifts Received...
Why did I agree to participate in a tag swap during this busy hectic season of the year? Because I love to create and I love to receive. I am so glad I did! Here are the tags I made. The swap was 16 sent and 16 received. These ladies had done this before but I wanted to join when asked and I am thrilled with the results. Thank you Jane of Aralia for hostessing this big undertaking. I am thrilled.
My simple packaging of each tag.
Here are the tags I received. If you click on the photos they will be easier to view. Each one so clever, unique, beautiful and special. Thank you ladies very much.
This is the special gift Jane created and included in each of the participants packages. A cute sewn coffee filter case which held the silver snowflake and the very sweet tiny Sweden tart dish with the snowman and fun glitter. Thank you Jane for these gifts and for being a wonderful and organized tag swap hostess!
This handmade card is so me. I love the blues, music theme and the ever so girly-girl wanting to throw that snowball. Thank you Marilyn of Art Rocks. I adore her and you!
I received this lovely tag from Lynn of Trash to Treasure Art. The greens and sepia colors are gorgeous in person. The image is a favorite as I Do Believe and Santa is very much a part of this magical season for me. Thank you Lynn!
I picked this little box up at the post office. It just made me smile. Who wouldn't love to get big pink polka dots in their mail?! My pen pal Dogwood sent me something...again! I just love everything she sends me.
A little wooden block with Christmas papers all over each of the six sides. With a sweet matching card. Thank you very much my very fun pen pal! I adore this and have it displayed in my Christmas goodies. Hmmm...wouldn't one of the uber popular bleached bottle trees be cute sitting on this block? Now I think I will need to acquire one of those which I have been avoiding just because...too much stuff?!!
Thank you everyone for your kindness and generosity of your creative selves.
On a sad note...yesterday I was beyond understanding the tragic events of senseless killings. Innocent people and little children. My heart is heavy and I am praying for healing for all those affected. P.L.E.A.S.E.
As we continue through our busy days may we help anyone and everyone that we can. Even a smile given to another is helping. enough said
