LIFE IS NOT MEASURED BY THE NUMBER OF BREATHS WE TAKE, BUT BY THE MOMENTS THAT TAKE OUR BREATH AWAY.

Sweet Swaps !!

I received my swap package from A Vintage Stocking Swap from Miss Lolly !! Wow, was I SPOILED !!!



Look at all the goodies !!! I smelled something very sweet when I opened the box, and it was these two wonderful green apple candles, Yum !! I lit one right away and infused our home with this wonderful smell !! She sent a BIG heart cookie cutter, candles, vintage calling cards, oodles of pearls, raspberry lip gloss ( double Yum !! ), a vintage pink potholder, pink frame, a magnet, package tags, A wonderful handmade collage !! And check out the SWEET Victorian girl garland !!


And look at all the goodies in the wrapped packages !!! Great buttons, birdie scissors, a pretty pink bracelet and I LOVE, LOVE,LOVE this sweet angel ornament !!! Thanks Lolly !!!This is what I sent my other swap partner, Miss Cathy. She was very easy to make for, as she does own a BIG PINK HOUSE !! lol I think we were all paired perfectly, Lolly had my taste down to a tee. And I hope that Cathy likes pink. :) lol

I was so busy this week, literally I have glitter stuck to my b*tt, I am sure. I didn't stop all week. I will be glad when Christmas is here, and I can enjoy the Season from somewhere other than my craft room. :) Here are a few goodies for ebay this week. I was so busy filling etsy orders that a few ornaments was all I was able to squeak out.



AND.............A very Sweet Lady named Becky invited me to join her "Merry Making Christmas Gift Guide" Where she has assembled some very talented artists and their wares for your gift giving needs, go check it out !!

How could a crafter miss with the theme of vintage stockings but it sure has resulted in beautiful creations from you and your partner.
