Holy cow, this gallery has exploded with awesomeness!! I'm amazed at the variety and output, wow! And now I can add my fabulous items crafted by the talented and patient RougeRaven (who surely doesn't want to see another sequin for a looooooong time Wink)...

My themes were kind of abstract, but the main gist was a gaudy riot of color -I LOVE sparkly, colorful Christmas kitsch- and boy did RougeRaven deliver! Everything is PERFECT!!

Seriously, have you ever seen such an amazing sequin tree and ornaments?!


Every single spot of color is an individual pin with several sequins and a bead. Every. Single. One.


I can't even imagine the time it took, because WOW!


And a long, colorful, and coordinating felt & sequin garland (I LOVE garlands) sewn with metalic thread!


So fun and festive!


Our home is guaranteed to be colorful and cheerful this year thanks to RougeRaven's amazing craft skills! Thank you SO MUCH for a sparkly, fun, and wonderful swap!! Grin

What a fun and bright and colorful and sparkly package!! Sounds like RougeRaven nailed your theme!

Now it's my turn to show off what I received!! yoopidou created a really special package for me. I love every single thing about it!!

First, an entire box of beautiful ornaments! I've decided I'm going to get a whole new tree and decorate it with these and other ornaments that I've received in swaps.



It's hard to pick a favorite but I do really adore the knitting ornament Smiley.



For my second small Ho (yeah, that first one was a small!!), she sent the most adorable Santa stuffie!! This was something I had asked for and she nailed it! This jolly guy is hand painted too. She is such a good artist!!



And look how perfectly he fits in our living room! I hope he's happy in his new home.


Notice how boring our tree skirt is?? Well, not for long because youpidou sent me the most incredible personalized tree skirt!!

First is this beautiful winter scene and it has all of our puppies along the outside ring. These guest bed pictures really don't do this skirt justice. It is so gorgeous in person. There are shiny sparkly little beads throughout.



But wait!! Flip the skirt over to reveal a whole new design! This side is so bright and fun and happy. yoopidou printed many of these fabrics herself too. Check out the limes and the trees. So cute!!



My favorite is the doggy fabric that she printed herself!! It has adorable images of all of our puppies. It's really so special. I wasn't kidding when I said she was a great artist!! 



Oh, did I mention yoopidou is an amazing artist?? Here's more proof. As an extra, yoopidou painted the most incredible portraits of our dogs. I tear up every time I look at these. They are so incredibly special and I feel so fortunate to have received them.



Thank you SO much for this thoughtful package, yoopidou. You put a big holiday smile on my face that is going to last the whole season  Kiss Kiss.

Those portraits of your dogs are amazing!!!  And that stuffie looks like he belongs right in that chair!

The sequin explosion is incredible...the colors are fabulous and I know how much work was put into pushing in all those pins...ouch!  So worth it...absolutely gorgeous stuff all around...

Mlheran- you're photos are amazing and I am jealous. Thanks for making me look good  Cheesy

I had so much fun making your package! (Ok, that garland did give me a hard time but) I loved making the ornaments and tree. I had never made the sequin ornaments before but now I  have started making sparkly goodies for my home too. I am addicted.
