FALL FINDINGS CIGAR BOX SWAP

BIG REVEAL DAY!!!!!

Karen @http://somedaysarediamonds-karen.blogspot.com/ was hostess for this swap.  She did a fabulous job putting this all together. It was so much fun getting to know our partner, checking out all of her likes and interests.

My swap partner was Oliva @http://olivascreativequest.blogspot.com/.  She is a blogerette who makes beautiful handmade greeting cards, her work is just phenomenol.  She sets a beautiful table, does a lot of baking,  She loves tussies, collects charming tails and is a rooster fan.  She is a member of the Red Hat Society like me.

She sent me the most beautiful box ever. The workmanship was over the top:





It was full of wonderful items.  First is an adorable Halloween hanging picture.
Another adorable picture.

A set of eight beautiful Autumn handmade cards:



Mulling brew for spiced cider, candy corn in a cute little mini jar.


So many tags, emblishments for my tag making and scrapbooking.

This was a fabulous box filled with wonderful things, it was a joy to unwrap all my beautiful things.

Thank you Karen for hosing and Oliva for being a great swap partner.

Your box is beautiful. What a talented person Olivia is! I participated too but my poor partner didn't get anything this pretty! I've got to take crafting lessons!

What fun things you received! This was great fun wasn't it. I enjoyed creating a box for your sis and she did such a nice job on mine.

I think I'll host more swaps on my own blog. Trying my first and if it goes well...look out for a Valentine's Swap!
