swappy mail!

ornies received
I participated in Elizabeths (creative breathing's) whitman candy box swap.  I truly think this has been one of my most favorite ever swaps!  Each ornament is just awesome!
I just love them all and they look so awesome on my little white tree all together!
They remind me of little department store display windows!  Im telling you, sooo stinking cute!
I didnt take a pic of the one I made, but youve seen them already, and if not, its the little one above with the deer and white tree.  this was such a fun swap!

Elizabeth is cleaning up her craft room, much to my surprise, she sent me another box full of her most wonderful creations!  3 valentine pals!!!!  and a few halloweenies!  I am sooo lucky!!  thank you Elizabeth!
from debby
more mail...  this package received from Debby of cozy blanket.  I joined in on her christmas mug swap.  She sent the sweetest little package!  I love it all!  and the mug is a chalkboard mug, you can chalk on the front of it!  Thank you so much Debby!
Just about finished with that big order..   I'm thinking by thursday night I'll be playing my own reindeer games!
have a great day girlies!

So many cute ornaments! I made a few of those last year for decorating and gifts and they are fun to make. This gives me a few more ideas.

SO I thought last year the lovely lady at Creative Breathing said she was no longer going to use her blog. I was so glad to see after your post that she decided not to it appears? Your swap ornaments are lovely! I just made one similar for another swap, it would have fit right into this one! I'll look out for it next year. YOU really are very talented, thanks for sharing your work with us!
