Button Floozies 2011 Ornament Swap

This was my first year to participate in the Button Floozies ornament swap.  I read about it on Laurie's blog, and I'm so happy I joined in!

Swappers were placed in groups of four, so everyone made three ornaments.  I started one ornament but it only included one button and I felt like that wasn't enough.  I progressed to these mini stockings with vintage eyelet and five buttons, and included a few buttons, some lace and a few vintage Christmas gift tags for each of the ladies in my group.
 The first ornament I received was from Wendy. It's velvet and lovely, and I do believe it's all handsewn.  I so admire that.  She also sent chocolate.  You'll notice there's no chocolate in the photo, because I ate it almost immediately.
This beauty was made by Susie.  I love that it can be displayed year-round, and I love the little tag she sent along with it.  Both are so creative and well done!

And last but definitely not least, this gorgeous girl made by Joni. It was beautifully wrapped with an embellished vintage card on top.  I should have packaged mine as well!

 A huge thank you to all of you, and to Laurie for coordinating the swap.  You can see all the fun on the Button Floozies' blog here.  I hope to do this again next year!
