Wondrous gifts...

Now that the seasonal mayhem has died down a bit, it's time to show of some goodies that I've received recently.

The first set of offerings come from the talented Gwen at Foxglove Hill. We discovered each other's work during AEDM, which is part of Creative Every Day. We agreed to create something and swap items, and I think I got the better side of the deal. Apart from a fantastically textured canvas, there was also a Midwinter card, a small handmade bag of goodies, and even the original working ideas stitched together. It really was a fantastic package to receive, and the canvas is now adorning my wall. Thank you Gwen.

 

Next up is my Secret Santa swap from the Altered Gypsies group, and I received a fantastic package from the original Altered Gypsy - Kersten. Apart from a box full of ephemera and quirky rubber stamps, I also received this charm made from antler and home made beads.

All in all, a good start to Christmas :)
