My downline has a Christmas party where we do a gift exchange. It is always a fun time to catch up and share a bunch of fun ideas! This year was no exception. Due to forgetting my good camera, I didn't get great photos of all of the hand-made gifts, but I'll show you what I was able to salvage. Please forgive me upfront for not remembering everyone's name. There were a lot of new faces to me!
Thanks for stopping by! CLICK HERE to shop in my online store - any time of day or night!
Blesings beyond measure!
We'll start with what I took to the party. Here is the packaging, but I got so excited to wrap it that I forgot to take a photo of it! Can you believe it? How embarrassing! The stocking is similar to the one I posted yesterday, except that I sponged the Cherry Cobbler cs with Early Espresson, so that it would stand out on the box. It can be used as a decoration or regifted with a gift card!
The gift was similar to this one, but I used a different paper and made a belly band out of coordinating Designer Series Paper. On this one, I used some of our beautiful fabric and one of our ginormous buttons!
And the inside...
Here is what I received! Pretty cool, huh? Joanne Randolph made this! I decided to make a few for gifts and ended up changing a few things. This may look simple, but don't let it fool you! A ton of work was required for these little babies! I made four of them and it took me all day long! I'll post my version tomorrow. LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!!! Thanks, Joanne!
This lovely little number was made by my daughter (& downline), Melissa! (Insert VERY proud Momma moment here! :)
This creative little Christmas tree covered in kisses was made by Carn Meagher. I didn't get one that night, but she made me one as a Christmas present the next week! Too cute!
This Spice Cake Paper is one of my FAVS!!! Michelle created this little treasure! My daughter, Melissa ended up with this, so we will be making some of these awesome magnet boards!
Sue Stinar created and quilted these pieces to make this sweet framed Christmas tree!
I honestly can't remember who made this sweet little "CREATE" plaque!
I am not sure, but I think Meloday made these adorable candy treats!
Holly Trumble jazzed up this wooden box with some flowers and dsp!
I believe that Marge created tons of seasonal inserts for this glass coaster set that was originally designed to hold photos! How clever!
