Terry/Terri Christmas Swap

My new blog friend Terry and I met through Kari Rastrom's Sweet and Sinister Halloween swap and both liked what we received so much we decided to swap privately for the next year.  It's been fun getting acquainted on-line and finding out how much we have in common besides our names. I feel totally spoiled by what she sent me for our Christmas swap. Take a peek!
There's a Christmas necklace and a precious bird nest cone that she made, a vintage apron that is oh so sweet, and a cute Santa magnetic memo board with button magnets.  Also German scrap Santas and Christmas trees, beautiful Christmas papers, stamps, bling, cute candy soaps and reindeer Sniffs.  For my sweet tooth there's lots of chocolate, a scone mix, and holiday coffees and cocoa with a ceramic mug to keep my beverages warm. All of this was wrapped up in pretty paper with a great big red ribbon with bells and ric rac.

I made her a white matlesse stocking trimmed with lace and bling, a little cookbook of some of my favorite holiday recipes with a mini whisk attached,  and a soldered Christmas charm necklace.  I also sent several pieces of vintage trim, a vintage horsewoman postcard, stick-on ornament decorations, a few scrapbooking supplies, a pretty memo pad and just a bit of candy.  I had fun making three tags that I attached to some of the items after they  were wrapped up. 

Can't wait for Valentine's Day!  I have big plans for that one and have already started on a couple of projects.

  1. I got one of those ceramic mugs for Christmas, too, in blue and white. I love the tags you made her and also that horsewoman postcard!
