My partner in the Christmas swap was Kathy. First up the goodies portion. She sent me Christmas spiced tea, chocolates and cupcake liners. I can't wait to bake some cupcakes!
These are both brooch pins. That wee Santa is made from a cinnamon stick.
Sorry this is sideways. When I opened the package it smelled so delicious, and then i found out why. Cinnamony spicey candles. The tags say ho ho ho and are made of wood with a cute jingle bell. And yum, a wooden box full of candy.
I saved my favorite for last. The cutest ever vintage elf ornament. It still has a 10 cent sticker on the bottom.
Thank you so much Kathy for being my partner. I love everything and can't wait to use it all. Merry Christmas!!

Just a few more swap items and I'll be ready to mail. This cute ornament was made with a copy of a vintage Christmas card.
A christmas pocket is filled with candy canes and a Santa tag.
And finally some pretty tags adorned with wreathes.

I am in a very fun Christmas swap. This is an ornament made out of vintage sheet music and a vintage Santa image.
I also made my partner this cute snowman trinket box. And speaking of snowmen, I have a pinterest board with tons of snowman crafts. Hope you like it

I knew when I saw this on pinterest I had to do it. So when my tween comes home from school today, this will be waiting for her!
and as a special bonus I filled the holes with the left over m&ms so when she picks it up it's like a pinata!

I've been really busy decorating all kinds of skeletons for Halloween. I decided to take a break from the scary and celebrate the happiest day in a kid's year. Happy birthday
I love her gimpy eye, just right for halloween.

Here is a closeupish shot of the SHARKNADO banner. Made of shark teeth and streamers.
I looked every single place in this town for gummy sharks. There were none to be had. I didn't let that spoil our SHARKNADO fun. I made some out of swedish fish and jolly rancher soft chews.
Cupcakes are always the best part of any party.
This one has an arm in its mouth.
Shark fin cupcakes, more on how to make them later.
Dude jumping into a pool of chips with a shark fin. Watch OUT!
Here is an arial shot of a couple in a hot tub full of the gummy sharks.
This is a shark fin hair clip. tutorial in a later post
