Below you can see all of the ornaments Val created.
I love quotes, so I am very partial to the back of the ornaments -- thanks Val, for participating all the way from Australia!!
Here are some more pictures, you can click on them for more detail. Thanks so much, Sara!
And below, you can see all of Michelle's ornaments. I turned them to fit my scanner bed! Thank you Michelle for participating. I love the old ledger sheets that you incorporated. : )
It never ceases to amaze me -- all of the ideas people come up with when I leave some room for interpretation and creativity in my swaps. This is one of the best rewards for me personally, in hosting. I am sure you get a lot out of seeing all of the pieces too!
Anyway, above is a close-up of the felt & doll face ornaments that Nicole came up with. I did get an email from Nicole - she was concerned and wondering, hoping that her ornaments were up to snuff?? I assured her they were! I know it can be intimidating to see all the creative work that is produced for these swaps, and it might make you nervous. It is understandable, because I am happy to say as we have some very wonderful and talented participants here. But I can tell you from my own experience, that if you put a little effort in to your work and do your best, think about what you are doing a bit, you are going to be just fine!!! No worries . . . and now, enough lecturing - you can view ALL of Nicole's valentine ornaments below.
Thank you, Nicole!
WOW, these ornaments Gunvor made are so interesting and beautiful. Click on the scan for more detail. There is an extra one for me, and 3 for the swap! The red heart is on one side and a cherub with collage papers and some clear embossing on top of this perhaps? Note: Gunvor wrote and told me it was actually crackle accents from Ranger, and that she loved that stuff! Gunvor has her own blog - "May the ink be with you" : ) - but be forewarned you will need a translator unless you speak Swedish. I used this one and Gunvor said I understood pretty well!
Gunvor, many thanks for participating & sending all the way from Sweden to CT, USA!
For her third ornament (this swap is in sets of 3) Gale made a lightweight square ornament - see below!
This swap is really shaping up - there is about one week until all the pieces are due here (Feb. 2nd). Please send your ornaments off if you have not already!
