On the TWELFTH Day of Xmas...


Group 1: Lelainia sent this handy little altered pocket calendar so all the ladies can keep track of art deadlines and other dates!

Group 2: Ruth gifted everyone with a beautifully hand colored magnet that has cool fibers hanging on the bottom of it. Simple, but elegant!

Group 1: Last but certainly not least, everyone in group 1 received this delightful altered tin, beautifully decorated by Maija. Group 1 was lucky enough to have 13 participants so on the day that when people were opening our own gifts, we opened Maija's. Thank you Maija for being so patient and waiting till the last day to receive our thanks!

Lelainia thank you so much for the wonderful calendar it is so delightfully enhanced and a must have for me!

Maija the tin is perfect and hanging on my tree.

My Best-
Maija, thank you so much for the wonderful tin. I just adore it! I will think of you every time I see it on my shelf. It was definately worth that wait!!

Ruth, your magnet was a really neat idea! I think art should be sprinkled all over the house and now the ladies will have it in their kitches!

Maija I have waited so long to be able to post my excitement here over this tin! I know each one must be unique because mine is different then the photo and I absolutely love it! It is so perfectly me! I love the way you used the old papers so cleverly and the little label at the bottom and the crepe paper circle with the button, just everything about it is awesome! Thank-you from the bottom of my heart!!

Lelainia I am so excited to have your artistic touch on something I can carry in my purse all year long! I just know it will bring comments from others as I use it and I will be able to remember and talk about this swap all through 2007! Merry Christmas and Thank-you!
