Arty Oz Christmas Swap

This fantastic present arrived today, just in time for Christmas, from Debra in outback Queensland. My photography does not do it justice- 3 mini canvasses, painted, stamped, embossed and collaged, joined with silver thread and beads, I was blown away when I opened it, it's a wonderful present, thank you so much Debra (and enjoy your holidays). Merry Christmas to all blogging friends, see you in the New Year.

Christmas Swap 2009

This is what I made for the Arty Oz yahoo group and now Marg has received it I can share with the rest of you. I actually made 3, one for Marg, one for Gail who was unable to participate in this swap and one for the fantastic teacher Ro, who taught me everything I know about Ro knots!

Retro Christmas Cards

Yay! At least I have started, although I will have to start over as I have run out of supplies! The gorgeous paper is Cosmo Cricket and I should have bought more.

Art Swap

A couple of months back I was asked to take part in a swap involving sending a piece of work, whatever you do (sewing, ATC's, cards, jewellery etc) to a recipient and then inviting 20 more people to get involved. I sent this concertina card to Sylvia.

Yesterday this lovely notebook arrived from Kylie. She apologised for being "late" but then I had to apologise for not remembering what swap I was in LOL! Thanks for participating Kylie, the surprise made my day.
