Ornament Swap

Sweet Vicky from Life On Willie Mae Lane recently hosted an ornament swap.  This was my first swap and it was so much fun.  Thank you Vicky for hosting! 

Part of Vicky’s desire was that each person would make two new friends, the person you receive an ornament from and the person you send an ornament to.

Well, I ‘met’ THREE new friends…

Debbie sent me the sweetest snowman package, because I heart snowmen.

She even decorated the outside of the package.

A package of surprises…hot chocolate, Gourmet cookies, milk chocolate snowballs .

And...this cutie pie… I LOVE IT Debbie.  Thank you so much J

Debbie doesn’t blog ~ yet ;) ~ so she keeps up with blogland through her daughter's blog The Enchanted Rose.  Stephanie is friend number two. You should pop over and read the poem she posted today and check out her amazing photos!

Now my third friend is Carol from Art and Sand.  She was the recipient of my ornament.  When you visit Carol’s blog you will notice she is an artist…no pressure here J From reading Art and Sand, I learned that she doesn’t decorate using traditional colors.

So I gave her this ornament, I painted the inside using blue, white and a little grey…beach colors since Carol lives very close to the ocean... you know, like right down the street.

I hope Carol likes her ornament as much as I like the one Debbie gave to me.

And I hope you have a great week… a short one for those of us celebrating Thanksgiving.

I am so glad that you commented on my recent post so I could find your blog.

I took photos of all my goodies, but I wasn't sure when we were supposed to write our Ornament Swap post. I need to write mine now.

What a great swap, Jeanna. Your ornaments - both gifted and received - are beautiful! :o)

Stephanie said...

Hello there sweet lady :) I enjoyed seeing what my mom gave you and I loved seeing what you sent - the ornament that you painted is simply lovely and perfect for someone that lives by the ocean! I am still waiting for my ornament from my "secret" sender :)

I hope you have a beautiful Thanksgiving! Hugs to you!

Hello Jeanna!

If it had not been for my dear Stephanie letting me know that you posted your precious gifts I believe it may have been some time before I made it here. :) I am slow with visiting the blogs I follow, but I eventually make my rounds.
You are so welcome! It was a joy to put your gift package together knowing you liked snowmen. Enjoy!

Your painted ornament was quite beautiful.

I look forward to getting to know you here in blog land.

Blessings to you! Debbie

Love the ornaments you received and the one you made and sent to Carol! I saw it on her blog and fell in love with the colors. Your link at Vicky's blog isn't working so I had to find you with a Google search!

Anne Payne said...

I love snowmen! This one is so cute :) What lovely gifts you received. Isn't this swap one of the best so far? Have a blessed week~ Anne

Debbie Harris said...

Hello Jeanna! I was going by and visiting all the blogs and seeing the wonderful gifts that each lady received, what joy!
Even though i have left a message I wanted to say "hello"!

Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones. Debbie
