swell swap



the holiday ornament swap of 2007 was highly successful in spreading the joys of the season. i've already received 5 of the 9 ornaments from my group and i'm so impressed with everyone's creativity & skill. it's wonderful to get a little piece of holiday cheer from so many different places ~ south africa, canada, new zealand, texas, seattle, minnesotta. i made 8-point origami stars, gave them a dusting of gold shimmer, glued a rhinestone in the center, and strung a loop of silvery grey beads for the finishing touch. i hope my swap-mates enjoy what i sent them as much as i am delighted with what they've sent me.
tons of photos of everyone's contributions are here.
