January Enchanted Ornament Swap

Val has a Year Of Enchantment Swap going on over at her swap blog. I was lucky enough to be able to join in. Each month Val chooses a theme for our monthly ornament. There is also a couple challenges for us to try each month.

January's theme was pinecones and acorns. This is what I sent my swap partner Sandy:


A ribbon pinecone ornament...

A pack of fairy buttons, some magnets, a wrist bag and a wooden sled ornament.

                                                                Sandy sent me:


This adorable little pinecone ornament. Isn't she sweet?

Some Sour Patch Kids, chocolates, hot cocoa, and some embroidery patterns and floss. I love these Aunt Martha embroidery designs.  You just iron them on and away you go. You can re-iron them a few times. If anyone is my future swap partner, I wouldn't mind receiving a few more of these patterns..hint...hint lol.  They have some cute ones to embroider on hand towels or baby items too. Cute, cute, cute!

February's theme is Fairies. I have already made my fairy but can't post any pics yet since it isn't a secret swap. I just need to work on my extra little tuck in. My partner this month is Ruhammie.

So funny! I've got my "prototype fairy" complete, so now I need to make the real deal. I've been keeping my eye on you over here to get some helpful tips and pointers. Thanks for the hints! ;) I'll be mailing to you soon!
