I hope you all had a lovely Christmas! as usual our celebrations were spread over two days with the Swiss festivities on Dec 24th and the English on Dec 25th. Every year I have good intentions to blog about the traditions I'm part of but once again my ability to keep up got lost somewhere in the run up to Christmas! next year, I'll do it next year...
I did however manage to do a Christmas ATC and matchbox swap with two of my favourite swap buddies Jan and Julia.
below is Jan's ATC, super super fabric transfer image! I love it!
Jan added a backing then stitched on beads, superb texture! just like a mini quilt
a matchbox using the same technique full of Christmas glittery gorgeousness!
and there was more! talk about being spoilt rotten!
Julia's ATC all the way from Russia, I love the paper she's used on both the ATC and the matchbox, it looks and feels like a piece of pink denim
teeny tiny treasures packed to overflowing!
and more goodies, threads, scraps and pins, but this has to be my favourite, an old salt shaker decorated and filled with vintage buttons!! oh swoon...
and last but not least, my little matchbox, a photo of me aged about 7 yrs on Santa's knee, no doubt wishing for the world!
