Okay so I finally had some time, not really. Here are the pictures of the swap with Chrissi Catherwoods that we did on the side. We missed the deadline for the swap list and got together and did a swap.
Chrissi sent me the cutest little bear on a box that holds a bit of Christmas Chocolates. He is adorable.
I sent her a Poinsetta Miniature. she wasn't quite finished when I took the pictures.
Kathy the photos look great!! You beat me to it, I planned to post mine tonight
My little poinsettia girl is hanging on my Hoosier Cabinet display...she needed to be showcased, she's so precious!!
So glad you like the beary box..I know it's not technically a tree ornament, but I got going on the head and saw a few of these Christmas boxes in a magazine and went for it!
So glad we did the swap!! :hug:
FINALLY!! :dance: :dance: :dance: The ornament is finished!! I'm rather pleased with it and really had second thoughts about putting it in the box. So, secret swap person, if you don't like it.....send it back!!!
The post office is my first stop in the morning. ACK!! Global Express! It's well worth it to get it there in time.
Warmest bear hugs, :hug:
P.S. I received my beautiful ornament from Bonnie a couple of days ago. I'm in LOVE!! I was going to try to post a picture this evening but I'm exhausted. Will post one tomorrow to have it included on the TT tree.
You are so very welcome and I am glad you are pleased with him. I struggled with different ideas until my brilliant husband told me to "keep it simple" so that's what I did! This was my first swap and I really enjoyed making an ornament to share. Great idea again, Tami!!!!!!!!!
I've already thanked Bonnie personally but I really want everyone to share in my delight with my secret swap ornament. I'm absolutely over the moon!!
Unfortunately, I'm having a dickens of a time trying to get a photo good enough to show how truly wonderful it is. These two pictures are my best attempts. So, Bonnie if you took better pictures before you sent my ornament, please post them. :pray:
Warmest bear hugs, :hug:
Your pictures look good to me and they turned out better than mine did! Thanks for posting them. I had a terrible time getting a decent photo of this ornament. I guess this she is just camera shy! I fianlly gave up.
I really need to work on my photography skills. Add that to my growing 'need to improve on' list!
I'm so glad your happy with her. Merry Christmas! :hug:
I received my secret swap ornament on Saturday. I was like a little kid ripping into the box. My daughter, of course, had to help and was just as excited as I was! Here's the ornament I received from Lynn. It is absolutely beautiful and the red accents work wonderfully with my tree! Thank you so much, Lynn! :hug: :hug:
I have also sent out my ornament. I'm sorry it was a little on the late side, but it should still be received before Christmas. They said only 2-3 days.
