Christmas ornament exchange

About two months ago Marsha from Sassy Mini Dolls organized a Christmas Ornament Exchange. Not a miniature thing per se, but I loved the idea and decided to join in. My swap partner was Sherry, someone I have never met, but judging by her blog and the emails she sent me, she's a very sweet person.

Have you ever tried to make something for someone you don't know? I can tell you, it is soooo difficult! I read Sherry's blog back to front to try and find out some more about her....still difficult ;)

I finally decided to make her an angel. The little bird she is holding refers to the birds on Sherry's birth announcements.

Unfortunately the ornament Sherry has made for me is still stuck in the mail somewhere between the USA and Holland. The fact that the Dutch mail has been on a strike I'm sure hasn't helped the matter...I am confident that it will arrive before Christmas though (don't worry Sherry!). I am still in full Saint Nicholas mode here and don't start my Christmas decorating until December 15th usually so I am very patient. Of course I will show you my gift here when it has arrived!

Check out Marsha's Blog Party to see the ornaments made by other participants!
