I may be a couple of months late but fortunately my swap pal and I use the same calendar! Wonder if she has started on mine... I love altering tins and this time I wanted to try something new, so I made a cutout with my trusty dremel, and twisted the edges back for an uneven, yet, rustic look. It was also a good reason to heat up the beeswax, mmmm, love that smell and the way found objects, lace even, can be repositioned with a blast of the heat gun.
Angels abound at Christmas but like Spruce trees, adorn our lives all year long. A gold halo and wings? How else would they fly... Love the little german glass doll that I snatched up at Kristin's Retro Art Cafe, along with an assortment of heads and other body parts. The 'Peace' charm on the front was part of a necklace at some point in time, and we don't we all hope and/or pray daily for that?! I guess I am finding all the reasons why being late is better than being never and that the thought truly is what counts. I also doubt I'll enter any swaps after October again, considering the difficulty I have coordinating my list with my energy level!
