- 2007 Holiday Ornament Swap -

image


Hello!

How are you? over here is busy busy busy , I've earned myself a nice rest and I plan to lay in the couch as soon as I mail my pending letters tomorrow.

You may noticed my little gingerbread men above! that's because I made some of them to send to the Second Annual Holiday Ornament Swap hosted by the lovely Freshly Blended Blog, I packed them in nice brown paper bags I embellish with the papers I showed you the other day

Just look at them :), they were playing around my mail, so cute!, You can see more ornaments on the 2007 Holiday Ornament Swap flickr group

We also made a bunch of these crocheted ornaments, love the noise of the bell and they look wonderful on the tree :), These are not for the - 2007 Holiday Ornament Swap- I sent some to my friends along with their Christmas card.

As you can see here, they are very helpful :), they helped me pack and check names,addresses and correct labels.

I made 26 bags!! I only needed 9 but I got exited with the gorgeous paper and I had to make more to wrap my holiday care packages and gifts.

I printed some stickers with the logo of the swap to decorate the outside of the parcel , I love making these I plan to do a bunch of these bags for spring with a new collection of papers.

If you want to see more photos of these goodies, I uploaded more at My Flickr

Well I have to go now, today is my brother's Birthday and he wants to catch some movies, something tells me I will be eating a lot of junk good today ^_^ Yay!

Enjoy your day!!

I sent you little surprise in the mail today. I think it will be in your mail box tomorrow. The only boxes I found were priority mail and I saw no point in paying $5.00 for a package to go 5 miles. I wrapped it in a lot of tissue paper and put it in an envelope, its soft so it should be fine. How has the border wait been? I have not crossed in the longest time. I hate the wait!!!!! Soon I won't even be able to cross until I get a passport :(

Yay! thanks Diana, I got the ornament and the cute fabric, I love the fairy tale piece you sent, I saw that fabric online but it looks so much better when you have it up close :) thanks.

I sent your parcel on Friday, hopefully you have it by now, please let me know when you get it ok ^_^

Have a Merry, Happy Feliz Navidad!!

I got it Saturday. Thank you sooo much! I love the junk food fabric!!!! The ornament is up on the tree. Froggies (green is my son's favorite color). My son want to write notes on them! I think I will let him write a thank you note to our friend in Texas on that. He is in Kindergarten and just learning to write. I help him phonetically spell out the words. I let them open part of their presents so they are barely getting to sleep now at 10. Maybe they will actually sleep in for once :)

ohh I was very exited about it, but I'm missing ornaments :( my swap group is kind of weird :(, but it's fun to send ornaments to strangers, I'm glad you like it and I happy to see that someone appreciates the effort ^_^

Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Hey Denise!!
Thank you so much for your Christmas Card! I just got it the other day and was thrilled to see a letter from you. I was thinking about you alot this Holiday Season. I couldnt get your gingerbread men out of my head and was wondering if you sold them?? I wanted some to decorate with this year and the only one I have is still packed from my move from CT back to CA... Let me know if you sell these? I know it's already past Christmas, but I'd still love to buy them if you have any you'd be willing to make/sell for me?

Hi Jess ^_^, I am so glad you got my card, I was worried because I wasn't sure if i had the correct address,I was also thinking of you , I didn't send you another one because I remember I sent you one the year before. I was selling them but I run out of tiny pom pons :(, I think I have one left of the regular kind and some chocolate ones, I need to check because I already store my Christmas goodies.

next time , pop me an email, it's so nice of you that you wanted to decorate with my cookies. I can always make you some for next year, but right now i have lots of work ( secret projects :))

It's nice to hear form you Jess, I missed your posts!

Take Care
