Happy Good Friday and Easter!!!!
I've gotten all my swap goodies from the two swaps I joined.......and I'm a very happy camper! First up is the Easter Spoolie Swap that our lovely friend Sandy hosted. My partner was Hope from "Pixie's Ponderings" who lives in jolly old England.......talk about lucky pairings.....she spoiled me with wondrous handmade goodies.
|This is the lovely spoolie she made for me...|
how adorable is that?
|This is a panoramic view of the goodies she sent. She made|
the adorable show ribbon and sent a sweet bottle brush
tree decorated with mini eggs, and a paper egg, made in Germany
of which I used in my Easter parade.
|She made the giant "chenille" peep, the peat pot with chickie,|
and the sweet little bunny "egg" and included the cutest vintage
metal egg and sweet little bee figurine.
|She also made me two tags highlighting the months of March|
and April......I love the April one with the kite.
Thank you so very much Hope, I love it all and best part of all is that I now have more to display for Easter.
Please visit Hope at her blog HERE to see what I sent her.
Next up is the fun Spring/Easter swap hosted by sweet Sue over at "Sue loves Cherries." I was paired with the amazing Hettie Mae of "Farm girl Pink" and I'm very happy once again, as I got spoiled by her as well.
|A vintage trace and color book, a vintage teachers|
edition of "My Brownie Art Book," pretty ribbon
spools, tissue paper, vanilla tealights, Easter
picks, and some cute pink basket stuffing.
|She included two paperdoll sheets (reproductions)|
a pretty blue candle holder, resin lamb, jumping chick,
Happy Easter plaque, stuffed bunny, vintage
pressed glass sugar bowl and still more...
|A close up of the sugar bowl.....gorgeous!|
|She included this box of vintage cards, which|
are a large size (8" x 10") and I'm showing those
that are included in the collage below....so cute!
Thank you so very much Mae for all the lovely goodies. I didn't take piccy's of how everything was wrapped (as I tore into everything) but she had everything wrapped in pretty retro paper (from the 70's) and also pink cellophane......very sweet.
Please visit Mae HERE at her blog to see what I sent her.
I'm in the process of adding about 11 or 12 new shadowboxes to my Etsy shop. Most are for Christmas, as my dear friend E sent me a huge collection of vintage Christmas wrapping paper and what could be more perfect for shadowboxes than that? Make sure you stop by to see them all HERE.
I haven't heard yet from Graphic 45, but you can all be sure I'll let you know if anything happens. I'm working on two sculpts at the moment, one for the lovely Keren at "Free Pretty Things For You" and one for my dear friend Laura of "Decor to Adore." I hope to get them both finished soon, in between many doctor appointments and my upcoming upcycled doll class on the 27th of April. I've also opened my studio every week for local crafters to come and work on projects, start projects or just to chat. I hope to get a calendar going on my blog soon for all the activities going on here. Until I do, if you're local and want to know what's going on, please email me at (email@example.com) and I'll be happy to let you know specific dates.
Happy, Happy Easter to you all,
