My family has decided to have a $5.00 brown bag exchange, as well as, drawing names. Everyone gets a gift for $5.00, wraps it, before it is put under the tree, my aunt will put all the gifts in a big brown grocery bag, so nobody knows whose is whose. We draw numbers, 1st person picks gift and opens it, 2nd person can take 1st gift or choose another one and so on and so forth. This year I've decided to add a little extra something to the $5.00 gift I purchased. HO HO HO Merry Christmas everyone!
One of the ladies in my groups had joined a Steampunk Charm swap, when se received her envelope of returns, the envie was open and empty (horrible). Our wonderful hostess, Claudine Criner, asked for volunteers to get some charms out to her for a replacement. Here are 5 that I whipped up and am mailing out to her today. I am hoping this brings a smile to her face and doesn't discourage her from future swaps as the charms I received from her were lovely.
I have been making jewelry for awhile now, so I decided to make some bracelets for everyone in a Santa Swap that I hosted. I added them to a little stocking before mailing. Sorry for the bad pics as I had to take them with my phone.
