Lynne Suprock of Simply Pretty Stuff created for the exchange! I was quite fortunate in being able to receive this gift in person! Lynne stopped in the shop and dropped it off! It was so nice to see her. She participated last year in the Gail Crosman Moore Weekend Intensive. Ever since then, we have kept in touch. The ornament she gifted me was a special one that she has been holding on to for "special people" and was a soldiered piece she made using the artwork of Brian Andreas' StoryPeople. She created a line of these ornaments for the artist and this one features the "Christmas Dragon".
Amber Dawn! I "met" Amber when she started the International Charm Day. For the past few years I've wanted to participate, but always found myself on the road or away. (This year, I've taken measures to insure my participation.) What a treasure trove! The bounty that Amber sent included handmade ornaments, Swarovski crystals, polymer clay charms, and a peyote stitched polymer clay piece with my name on it! For a better view of the holiday ornament she made visit her blog and CLICK HERE. She called it "spring in a bottle" and I cannot lie... it definitely evokes happy spring-time feelings.
I'm so lucky to have been able to facilitate this exchange. I feel very fortunate! Thank you!
