Care Package

My good friend Michelle and I agreed to do a care package exchange this holiday season. Originally the idea started out as an ornament exchange, but then we decided to add in a few extra goodies, since we were sending our packages so far. (she lives in England, I live in the US)

She sent me SO many wonderful goodies! (you did get carried away, Shell!)

She has a talent for painting faces, bringing out the most charming expressions.

In fact, she is good at many crafty mediums, from drawing to painting to stitching.

She was thoughtful enough to include a couple local goodies from her neighborhood. Wish I had thought of that with the package I sent her!

Even though I’m not finished with Christmas gifts and I have several custom orders to work on, I am already brewing ideas for our next swap. There’s nothing like a care package full of handmade goodies from a long-distance friend to warm your heart. Thank you, Shell!

  3. Hehe – you are most welcome Terri – I had the BEST fun putting this package together especially for you and I look forward to our future exchanges! It is bitterly cold here today -5 and more weather warnings – so pleased the Christmas vacations have started and I can stay snuggled up indoors :0)

  6. What a wonderful package she sent! She is certainly talented, the painted faces are so sweet!

    It’s wonderful that you are getting lots of custom orders, I hope all goes well!

    Take care, Cheryl

  7. What a great swap package! The gifts were great. I am liking the cute ornaments. Those pairs of skates look like something my ornament club kids could do next year. I see they have just a little sewing, but not to much to be overwhelming. I think that idea is perfect for kids. Love the recycled paperclips used as the blades.
