13 Days of Christmas - Day 9,10,11,12,13

oops... I kind of dropped the ball on the 13 Days of Christmas! I was too too busy with school and preparations at home. I didn't even get my tree decorated for Christmas! That's okay, because my mom had a beautiful tree and I was able to spend 4 days looking at it!

Back to the 13 Days...
(Most of the unwrapped images were taken from Leslie Brier's blog -- because I forgot all of the gifts and my camera at school for the holidays... )

Day 9 was Hope

Hope made these beautiful pins --she is so talented at painting faces... my pin is actually a bit darker grey/ blue and goes with my grey sweaters perfectly!

Day 10 was Terrie. The clasp on the bag is a vintage candle clip for a Christmas tree!

Inside was a pretty ornament -- vintage sheet music wrapped around a wooden spool -- it has the perfect amount of glitter on it, and looks fantastic on my little tree! (I have a twig tree up that carries all of my 13 days ornaments from this year and years past)

Day 11 was Linda Morgan

Linda made beautiful assemblage dolls --= the arms and legs are vintage doll parts uneartherd (literally) in Germany.
Day 12 was Terry

-- she made us these super cute birds -- I love the eyelash detail and the plumage :)

Day 13 was Pat Winter

Pat made us each a pin -- it is very romantic and filled with lavender so it smells so pretty!

So many of us made ornaments this year! Our instructions simply said to make a gift for each person in the group. I'm glad that some people made pins though -- I can wear them all year round :)

Next up with this group is a Valentine Charm swap (not a 12 Days or 14 days -- just a simple swap)... I'm off now to start sketching charms !

Love the fifties you got. And, I totally understand about getting behind. I'm having trouble posting from Africa (half my pictures don't upload and only 1 out of 4 attempted blog posts went through).

That's gifted, not fifties...

I am so glad that we finally got this swap off the ground!! Thanks so much for being part of it all. Getting behind at Christmas is part of the script isn' t it????? If we were all ready and prepped and all there would be something very wrong!!!!!
Happy New Year to you and Yours!!!
