I've made some wonderful fiends via blogging and swapping and I realize it sounds so cliche to say handmade gifts are the best but as we all know here in our artsy blogisphere, handmade gifts really are the best! I recently won a giveaway from Marie of Lost Bird Studio. Her blog is a huge source of inspiration to me and I've long admired her beautiful creations.
Kim of Tabitha Lenox has become a very good friend of mine. We've swapped in many groups over the years then became even closer through our blogs. I admire her artistic talent and appreciate her kind and thoughtful ways (not to mention her wicked sense of humor!)
I LOVE this stunning altered vintage cabinet card ornament she made me.....it's so my style.
This is a long overdue online acknowledgement for this creepily wonderful altered doll that I won from Kim's Halloween giveaway.
I met Linda through my flickr swap group and am so happy I did. She's a lovely person who I enjoy swapping with very much.
Laurie of Indulge Your Shelf also swaps in my flickr group and her creations always bring a smile to my face.
Michele of Nook And Cranny gifted me with this festive altered Christmas stocking.
My holidays are much happier because of treasured gifts from treasured friends.
