Everything was is a crisp cellophane envelope, a very cool ATC card, candy and a Owl Wand with ribbons, guess I gotta 'Hoot' 3 times and make a wish..and a very retro silver owl necklace, hung that over a picture frame...some very pretty papers and was all wrapped with a crepe paper bow that matches my kitchen wallpaper perfectly, so need to do something with that!
On Nov. 1st a New Swap will be announced.. and think I will do it alittle differently, everyone will be posted on the blog, so you 'must have a blog' to join in and link to... well I hope everyone was happy with their Swaps and partners and somehow made a connection across the miles as tried to match up everyone with someone far from them. I had 5 partners [the perk of being host to the swap!Heehee!] the Netherlands, Hawaii, New York,Wisconsin and Florida..next time only 3..postage was a killer...gulp!

I hope everyone has their swap goodies now and my partners have been so creative with our theme such a surprise with each box as what they have come up with.. the swap was simple, a paper doll, a ATC card, and some type of owl. This box was a total surprise as was not even my partner! Amy just blew me away, as she said she never did a ATC card or a paper doll!! Well her 'paper doll' with be a treasured heirloom in this house!! She was so creative in her presentation and even a poem to go with the jointed doll! Thank you.. and a big hug for being so thoughtful Amy!
for some fun treats.. Just love that orange and black ribbon and black rose! The paper is so pretty will save for future projects! The cards and tags were delightful!!
