In the first day of Christmas...

I was invited by the great Deryn Mentock (Something sublime) to participate in this year's The 12 days of Christmas swap!! The participants are such a talented group of artists and I'm so happy to be part of it. We exchanged ornaments. Mine is number 12 so I can't share my images with you yet, but I will! You can read more about this swap here and here.

Day by day the beautiful packages arrived and I had to fight with myself (and my daughter) to keep them wrapped. But the day arrived and now I can open them! Well, just one per day :P

Here you can see them all together, waiting for me to open them and share them with you.

So in the first day of Christmas Melissa David gave to me: (she, sadly, doesn't have a blog but she makes beautiful things!)

We look at it and it was so beautifully wrapped that I hesistate a bit.. should I open it or not?


My daughter decided we should! So we opened it!


And here it is! A beautiful metal star that is now hanging in my Christmas tree :)


Thanks so much Melissa for your beautiful work! I'm happy to be one of the lucky recipients!!
