Ornament Swap...

Oh, I'm soooooooooo excited. I participated in my first swap for 'deck the halls' swap hosted by Home is Where Your Heart Is http://www.monicaanderson.blogspot.com/). I was so nervous! Not having participated in a swap before, questions overwhelmed me....What should I make? Will my swap partner like it? And, then after making it...Not sure I like it? Not sure it looks good? Will my swap partner like it? Well, all of my questions have been answered....yes, yes she likes it! My swap partner was Kathy at Kathy's Cottage (http://www.kathyscottage.blogspot.com/), and she likes it! She received my package today, and likes it! Oh, I've said that haven't I! Anyway, she had a terrible day starting out today according to her post (nasty car trouble, no...terrible car trouble), and then when she got home there was my swap package and she likes it! Oh, I said it again, oh well...she does! I'm so glad that I participated in this swap and that Kathy was my swap partner. I'm meeting just the best people in blogland! I've been waiting for her package to arrive so that I could post pictures of what I sent her...so, without any further delay here it is.


I made her a toile covered box, with lots and lots of glitz and glitter on top!

Can you see all the glitz and glitter?


What, there's more inside?


Some of the items all packaged and ready to be sent off to Kathy.

Almost ready to be taken to the post!

Finally....all packaged up and ready for the trip to my blog friend Kathy. Oh, I'm so glad that she likes it!

What a feast for the eyes! Of course she liked it, who wouldn't? I love swaps. I wish I had known about that one.
