Christmas swappin'

Friday, December 2, 2011
I joined two swaps this holiday season.... One of the swaps was exchanging 9 Christmas ornaments. Once the ornaments were made we were to send them to three gals-- three ornaments each. The other Christmas swap was making 20 tags and getting an assortment of 20 tags back.
Here are the ornaments I've made... Here I've taken some vintage gold angels and painted & distressed them and added some plumage to their wings. Whimsical party hats finish those off....Next, I painted little signs that read, "A cupcake for Santa" I imagine he gets sick of eating cookies at every stop~Lastly, wire chandeliers. I wanted a chandelier to put into the Barbie house I'm working on--- while working on a prototype, I figured I could make them to hang on a Christmas tree too. I love how these turned out!I also began working on the 20 tags..... so far all I've done is finished fussy cutting the 20 vintage images to use on the tags. Of course, once I finished cutting those, I immediately wanted to do something else..... I'll just push those to the bottom of the ever growing list of things I'm working on. Closer to the mail out date, I'll appreciate those pre-cut images and use them happily :-p

I've been super busy working on some more pendants. These little bitties are going to be listed for $5 each (no chain, just the charm) The red on these charms is just a reflection from some red glass.I am over the moon with these little bitties.... I used copies of vintage & antique Holy cards. The old images are so beautiful! These little charms are going to be listed for $5 each as well. (no chain, just the charm)
