This year I entered a swap online where 3 gals would swap making 3 christmas items for each other. I can now show a pic of what I made as they have been mailed out and received.
I made fabric collages similar to what I made for Jillayne's swap last year. People seemed to like them so I stayed with a proven thing. The second pic is a closeup of one of them. They all have the same angel pic as last year but otherwise different lace, color, buttons, etc.
Second were the birds I had also made previously and they have the tiny crystal at the botom with the word "fly".
The third was a paper rosette and I actually made 4. I was going to use a package of really pretty things for the middle. Well have you ever tore the house apart looking for something that you know is here but can't find. I finally gave up and used silver stars that I had and made 3 so they would all be the same. The day I mailed these out to the other gals I pulled a plastic box out from under a living room chair and they were in there. I could have screamed.
I did not put glitter around the rosettes as I have done in the past as people have been saying a lot on line about not wanting all the glitter getting all over everything and being an actual health issue in some homes. therefore I went glitter less and ho[pe they will add there own if they so please. I will add some to the 4th. one I made and it will be for me.
Tomorrow I will show you what I have received from my 3 gals.
