Gifts to and from a Blogger

Some time ago Myrna from Heirlooms asked me if I wanted to do a swap with her.  Something we both made.  Well, I was going out of town, and then Myrna went out of town, and then life went on....finally, I sat down and finished my gift and so did Myrna!

What a treat I got in the mail.  I just adore this little book of inspiration and Bible passages.  Take a look!!






This sweet musical symbol is the clasp to keep the book closed.



Each section has a tag stuck inside!


I sent her a wall hanging in Altered Art.






Thank you Myrna for such a treasured keepsake!!  I am so glad we finally got our gifts to each other!!

Hi, Ceekay. Thanks for stopping by today. I'm so glad I came to visit you. Love this beautiful swap. Both of you made beautiful pieces. I love Myrna's book and your wall hanging. I'm looking forward to exploring your blog here and your other blog/journal about your cancer fight. I am sorry to hear that you are sick. I wish you didn't have to fight that battle. I promise to keep you in my prayers. xoxo

Hello!!! OMG..I LOVE the gift you received and the gift you made!! You gals are so talented....you did such great work on your creations!! I know each of you will treasure your swap!

You fall decor is wonderful, too, Ceekay! I need you here to stand next to me and make me decorate for the season change! I just am not into it....I have gobs and gobs of decorations, too, but I am just not wanting to put out the effort! However, we have just announced we're having a gathering here right before Halloween....I did that so I would HAVE to make something happen...like really clean the house and decorate! :)

Hope you're having a great weekend. Our weather is amazing....I'm gonna walk the gr. dog, then go out and jog for a bit. It's too pretty to be inside.

L, Dana
