We Came, We Saw, We Swapped!

Today is the big reveal from the Handmade Holiday Swap!  It seems like so long ago I posted asking if people would like to do a handmade gift swap, and I got a great response!  15 of us swapped packages, up to three packages each.  The more you sent, the more you received!

The results are amazing!  I'm so impressed with the items that were shared.  I have a few photos from the swappers and I'm going to put a linky at the bottom, so if you blogged it, Facebooked it, tweeted it, Instagrammed it, etc. and want to share, just link up below!

Ok, first, here is what I sent out:


And what I got in return is just amazing!

From Sue at ecoleeko-a beautiful, soft stitched portrait of Casey, which hubby said he heard me gasp when I opened it, it's just that lovely.

And from Amanda at Divine Domestication- a set of embroidered linen napkins, perfect for the first-ever Christmas dinner I'm hosting at our finally finished house this year, and a cutie-patootie pair of fabric button hairclips for Greta.

  1. I linked up my post on the gifts I received.

  2. Sadly, my camera isn't working, so I don't have pictures to share =(, but I am the one who received that beautiful peacock picture frame shown above!!! And I LOVE it!!! I also received a set of lovely cards from RowHouse14 - LOVE them too. =0)
    After sending out my gifts, I realized that I hadn't put the cards in the packages...Oops. I ended up writing on the outside of the envelopes that it was for the Holiday Exchange. Silly me! With all that's been going on for the hoildays and the kids out of school on break, somehow I was in too much of a hurry to get them sent. I still have the cards sitting here on the desk...Maybe I'll just drop them in the mailbox.
    Thank you, Kristen, for organizing this fun event! It was great!

    1. I'm so glad you like the peacock frame. Happy Holidays!

  3. Oh my, I would have gasped too! that pet portrait is the bomb. What wonderful gifts yougave and received. I wanted to participate...it's an AWESOME idea. I just knew I'd be full to the brim will all I could handle. I'm so glad you guys got to make each others day!

  4. I totally forgot to take a pic of mine before I sent it out! Sad day. Hahaha. I haven't received mine yet, but when I do I will send you a pic:)

  5. I'm the one who got the items from RWKrafts! I have a picture of what I sent out but I haven't posted it anywhere because I didn't want to ruin the surprise for the recipient. This was so fun! I'll be on board if you do it again next year. :-)

  6. I shared my gift (custom note cards) on my FB page: http://www.facebook.com/925Maille

    This was a lot of fun - count me in for next year!

    Merry Christmas!
