Finally, the day has arrived to open our first gift. In the online group, An Affair with Art every December we have a Christmas swap. The swap...12 days of Christmas.
This year there were enough signups for 3 groups of 12. I was assigned to group 3, day day 8.
Everyone in the swap had to create 12 small, handmade gifts and mail them off to the ladies in their assigned group. Gwynn had day 1 and here is her cute ornament. It is hard to see, but there is curled copper wire with little bells hanging from the bottom of the heart. And, wasn't the packaging Gwynn created to put her ornament in, just the cutest? I loved it, and am keeping the little decorated brown bag.
The jingling in the package had me wondering for days what little gift was inside the pretty package. Can't wait for tomorrow morning to open my day 2 package.
I haven't had much time in the past several days to update my blog or even work on any Tim 12 days tags. If I get to finish my version of his tags anytime soon isn't looking very promising. We shall see how it goes after the holidays.
I still need to make and mail out my Christmas cards, wrap presents, bake and time is just slipping away.
We had a lovely 93rd birthday party for my dad last Saturday. Dad really enjoyed being with family.

Well, I better get to doing my errands and then get to my card making. I hope everyone isn't as far behind as I am this holiday season. I wonder if I can find some elves to come and help me wrap gifts.
