Christmas Swap - Charm Swap

Heidi from Foxgloves Fabric and Folly hosted a home made Holiday Swap. My Swap partner was Carol from Sassafras and Lulu. Can I say I have been so blessed with swap partners? Carol is so talented and very generous she made me skates! I love skates they look so vintage I adore them. I also received lots of goodies as you can see below. I made Carol a Vintage retro Shadow Box and sent her some goodies. Swaps are such wonderful ways of pushing yourself to try new things and make great friends!

No More Christmas Swaps but I have had a wonderful time this year with Swaps and looking forward to 2010's Swaps...I signed up for a Valentine Tag Swap already!! Can't wait.
This is what I sent Carol!

This is what Carol sent me!

Charm Bracelet Swap

Saucy from "Saucy's Sprinkles" Hosted a Holiday bracelet swap. There were several bracelets mine was the vintage pink and blue. I am sorry I really need to put the charms on the bracelet...I know but I had to post about this before Christmas was over! Saucy is so sweet as sweet as the most adorable cupcakes she makes and is so talented and has the cutest family, especially her daughter!

My charm is pink bell with snowflake with pink crystal in center. Pretty white Angel is Maureen from Canada. Cute Joy from Doreen in Florida.

Stinkin cute charm with pink flower on top and blue glitter and tiniest bell at the end on the cutes doll card - Maija. So pretty square glass like with black swirl charm from Shannon. Perfect pink snowy cute snowflake pink ball and teardrop pearl from Sharon from NC.

This is where I moved everything and lost some of the order of charms so sorry ladies please write to fix whom made what. (thanks)

Beautiful bell square glass charm on cute card - Corinne. Pretty silver charm with blue crystal in center is Sandra. Cute snowflake charms & shrinky dink charm with a girl with suitcase Saucy. (Sorry pictures stink)

Again apologies to some women I mixed them up..
Pretty Tree and snowflake is from Jody. Cute gift ornament and pink charm from Sharon in NC. Elegant silver diamond shape charm with little blue crystal dangling Sandra.

I found your blog from your comment on Saucy's blog and wanted to thank you for participating in the swap. Loved your charm,especially the pink bell. Wasn't it neat how many bells there were considering that wasn't one of the suggestions? Mine was the diamond shaped silver charm with the dangling blue crystal. Hope you and your loved ones have happy holidays.
