More to share...Christmas Ornament swap ~ what I created for Wendy

Creating a Christmas matchbox ornament for my swap partner was so much fun. The J is to represent Jesus...or J for the word 'joy' that I've come to love. The little snowman earrings I put together came out pretty cute. Wendy said she wore them right away.

Isn't little baby Jesus in the straw cute? Last year when I first discovered one of these little Christmas match box gifts, my heart just melted. Jesus is the reason for the season. I sewed on a little 'made with love' tag and glued little cute buttons on the end of the box.

Pictured above are the purchased store/made ornaments I picked out for Wendy; a stocking, star and mitten. She shared that she decorated all of her Christmas trees with one of the ornaments I sent to her.
A blessing to make a new friend especially at Christmas time.
Hopefully we'll stay  in stay in touch with one another on our blogspot journeys. Thanks for stopping by to see the ornaments sent to Wendy.

Swaps are so much fun aren't they? Thank you bloggertte sister Debi!

Bloggerette Christmas Ornament Swap

 'Here is my lovely wooden Christmas angel ornament handcrafted by bloggerette sister Wendy'
Wendy really outdid herself...she spoiled and delighted me with many pretties.
She made this from wood! It is so smooth and painted so gently...I just marvel at the talent people have and share so freely.

Little 'jingle bell' tree to the left and little Nativity.
How very sweet!

This is little bitty and matches the one in photo above.
Look at Mary smiling! Joy!

Wendy made these items for me...a Clip it and Zip add flair to anything.
And she made the book belt for me. It is so clever. It's crafted with beads and I love books.
Don't you just love the painted angel face and the cross embellishment?
So precious and cute without any hair! I look forward to having her fly over head
in the N2God Tea Room this Christmas 2011 and many years to come.
Thanks a million Wendy. You have made this bloggerette sister's heart smile.
Merry Christmas Bloggerette Sisters and
thank you Debi for putting this fun swap all together!
