I neglected to post about the other swap I participated in: the Sparkle and Snowflake Swap hosted by Holly.
My swap pal Eve in Oregon sent me these lovely blue sparkling snowflakes and...
Gold glittering reindeer ornaments. You should have seen all the glitter when I opened the package, WOW , it was like "magic dust" all around me!
Eve also knitted this wonderful scarf, I've been battling my 18 year old daughter, Morgan over it ever since it arrived! The girl owns over 7 scarves as it is but insists she doesn't have a multi brown one that looked perfect with the outfit she had on...
This white ornament with snowflakes and rhinestones...
a package of snowflake tags...
I added the poinsettias in between each letter using the Making Memories paper flowers.
Sorry, accidentally deleted the photo I had of the banner strung out.
The red flocking on it was still in pretty good condition,
but I decided to cover it with red glitter - also included candy canes to fill it with.
then added the paper poinsettia and a gold leaves from a pick.
A monogram ornament for Eve.
(from my friend Binda in Australia and the vintage pink swap)
then filled with french vanilla soap and fizzing bath balls.
little green glittering tree.
Two little monogramed sticky note cards,
a red charm for a necklace
as Eve likes to make jewelry and a
few gift tags I embellished with more of the poinsettias.
more merry for me wth two new friends being the best gift of all.
