Dreaming of Ornaments


I have been dreaming of Ornaments lately.I currently have a new post on the Paper Whimsy Inspire blog on how to make these sweet treats using PW Alterables

The last two years I have watched other artists exchange Ornaments and this year as soon as January rolled around I asked some art friends if they wanted to participate in a swap with me...and they actually said yes...woohoo....I am so happy with the way this turned out and I am especially thankful to share this fun swap with Art Sisters that I admire and respect. Here are the treasures I received in the mail.

Nelly Wortman
A beauty and it came in it's own handmade pouch...
Kecia Frazee Deveney
I love Kecia's drawings...she has a collection of them in a calender...how cool is that!!

Jodi Ohl
No one works with color like this sweet lady...love it...

Lynne Suprock
So very cool by my dear friend...

Nancy Maxwell James
Loving the color on this one and that bling just makes it pop!!
  • me
  • Each one came with the initial of the participant and they each have Art Sisters stitched in..

You are here

Taryn Reece
I especially love the box...so awesome...

Lesley Venable
A resin angel on metal tin...lovely...

I also recently had my local art friend Cyndi Johnsrud stop by and looky what she made me...
yup...a beautiful Ornie..
I am such a lucky duck!!


and here they are resting on a twig branch tree in my studio...


Merry Christmas friends!
