My swap partner was Vicky from Paintspots and Splinters She is a very creative and talented artisan, as you will see below. She also has other adorable items in her Etsy shop . I'll tell you, these exchanges are dewdrops of God's mercy. The package came on such a dreary, tiring day. What a joy to open. Look at how I was spoiled!
Oooohhhh! USPS package!
Beautiful penmanship! I sure do love good penmanship! You'd think I was a teacher!
Awww! An apple for the teacher! Perfect for my fall apple decor!
A snow angel! Love his sweet face!
Candy canes! I put those right into one of my crocks!
Now! The main attraction! Is she not wonderful!? I love that her wee bag is the pinkeep. I love the needle and thread and how it connects to the spool. So many precious details. She is perfect for my mouse collection in my old fashioned pantry. My other mice welcomed her with open arms. They were needing some mending done!
She fits in perfectly!
I enjoy creating pinkeeps for these swaps. It is an encouragement to me to keep creating and not let my creativity be squelched by busyness at work. I so appreciate the opportunity to meet so many talented ladies through these swaps. Thank you, Wendy, for organizing this swap. Most of all, thank you, Vicky, for the time and love you put into your pinkeep. I will cherish it, and I will always have fond memories of you each Christmas when I see her cute little nose!
Love and Blessings to you all!
