Ticket Swap

I participated in a ticket swap in one of my Yahoo! groups. We were to decorate 10 tickets and send them to the hostess. Here's what I received back:
 And the backs:
I searched all my pictures and found I did not take pictures of the ones I made. That's very unfortunate, I really liked them.

Button Floozies Swap

I participated in the Button Floozies Christmas Ornament Swap again this year. Here's what I received.
From Pamela White of The Finders Keepers Blog:
 From Laura Sheppard, no blog:
 From Laurie Jackson of Indulge your Shelf:
 And here's what I made:
They're little stockings, the buttons are all vintage, the trim is vintage, the front is a dish towel I was sent in a swap, there are two kinds of backs, one a red striped dish towel and two, a red and white patterned piece of fabric.

I'm still waiting on the last ornament for the swap, but I wanted to get this post up before I forgot.

Vintage Stocking Swap

I received my stocking from my parter today. Here's what I saw when I opened the box:
 And the contents:
 The gorgeous stocking she made for me, a mesh bag filled with thread, hankies and a frog, a metal angel, a cute ornament, a tiny bottle of buttons, and a bag of holiday pieces.
 A frosty the snowman book, some iron-on transfers, a couple vintage Christmas cards, a notepad, a bunch of lace, some fabric, a cute deer ornament, a couple charms and a needle book.

Here's what I sent her:
I bought this stocking and added the lace and fabric flowers to the top.

I won't show what the contents of the stocking are, as she's going to open it closer to Christmas.
I'm not that patient, I had to open mine today.

Thank you, Stevie-Lynn
