I received my first ornament from gigglygirl.  This bear is great with his sleepy eyes, bow and button heart.  I love the fact that his appedages are movable, he can 'stand' or sit on a branch in the tree.  Can't wait to see it there!  Thanks so much gigglygirl.

Just wanted to stop in and show my. 2 different designs.  I'll be asking people who are recieving from me for their addresses and i can possibly accommodate your choice of ornament.  I blinged them up a bit, so they aren't the typical rustic type of ornament you usually see with these.  But I hope my partners like them!  I can probably go green early next week.  Oh!  And at the time the oics were taken I didnt have them drilled or strung, but of course there will be a way to hang them when they arrive. 

Sorry bout the huge screenshots.  I'm STILL not used to craftster photo hosting and how to get my photos to upload.

Hi all!  The last swap I participated in was 5 years ago, and it was this one.  I can't remember how many rounds, but I know every year we decorate the tree I remember each ornament fondly as made by one of you.  (And I do see some familiar names!) Shortly thereafter I had lots of problems with my eyesight, multiple eye surgeries, and lots of adapting.  I know for thr past few years I've wanted to join this swap, but I don't think of it til I'm too late.  This year I guess I'm just in time....
   I would like to offer some handpainted wood slice ornamemts similar to these...  (From Pinterest)

More likely I will be doing scenes similar to the second picture.  The woodburned ones are nice, but I really want color.

Continued.... Here's the last 4 ornaments I received.  I was concerned the message would never upload unless I cut my pictures in half...

Here's the darling little knitted bird from hazelly.  I love the bright color.  It is too cute, knitted ornaments have a special place in my heart. 

From cinnamon teal, a ceramic snowflake ornament.  Another that the picture can't possibly do justice.  It's beautifully shiny-glazed, and I love the color. 

I love this star from Ninaprettyballerina.  If I knew how to make these, I would probably spend the rest of my craft time til Christmas making them in every color.  But since I can't do that, and I don't have nearly the time, these fabrics are perfectly festive.

And here's my little felt gingerbread man from bec99.  Adorable!  The pink cheeks, the bow, the seed bead trim,... All those little details are awesome.
This was, as usual, a totally cheerful and entertaining swap for me.  I probably won't even be back around to swap til next year just for this again.  Thank you everyone for the ornaments, they were perfect.  And thank you GatorWrangler for hosting this.  I'm so glad I decided to check into craftster on the last day of signups.  This really helped me get pumped for the holidays.  :0)  I can't wait for the rest of my ornaments to arrive to their destinations...

I'm so excited, I got my last 2 ornaments today!  I LOVE them all.  Most of our family has birthdays the beginning of December, so we usually don't put up a tree and lights until after the 13th.  So I'm showing my ornaments off now, and they'll remain in a small box on top of my entertainment center for a couple more weeks.  Without further ado...

Here's a beaded wonderment bell from iSewCute.  There was one of these on my tree growing up, but it got lost somewhere along the way, and I'm so happy to have another.  It's more sparkly and prettier than I even remember.

Here's the snowman Snowglobe from GatorWrangler.  It's so unique, and the iridescent glitter really makes it.  I love the way it looks along with Christmas lights. :0)

A starfall ornament from goldfishpollywog.  I was so excited to be able to have a rainbow ornament.  It is lovely.

Here's the melted snowman ornament from JillHogan.  Not that any of these pictures are perfect, but this is so much neater in person.  And so much fun to play with! After getting everything inside, everyone had to have a turn.

Sorry if this pic is terrible.... I just happened on craftster today after a long hiatus, and I saw that sign ups for one of my favorite swaps was ending.  Anyhow, I tried uploading a pic from my phone, and it seemed to work (one wish I was hoping craftster made possible at some point).  I'm just not sure how it looks on a computer screen but I'll check that out tomorrow.  If it is huge, squashed, upside down or not visible at all, I'll know in the morning, but I can definitely see it....

This is an example of a felt owl in b&w,... I've made them in other colors and can make them in pretty much any colors you would like... But this is the only pic I have.  There will be some kind of Christmas button on the middle, but maybe not that same snowflake.  I hope these are acceptable offerings with me joining at this late hour...

I got my twinchies (and inchie, rinchie extras) from meowari!

All of these have a lovely sparkle on them somewhere.  It barely shows in the picture.  The peace one is so glittery it dazzled me when I opened it on my porch in the sunlight.  The felt kitty is perfect,...  grey goes so well with a red glitterized background.  The squirrel,... so cute.  The wings, are they... twirly birds?  Helicopters?  From... maple trees, I think?  (I'm sure there is a more technical term, but I used the terminology I used as a kid!)  They are also glittery, and the squirrel is drawn and cut out to go on the painted sky background.  Just as the mermaid tails (hanging on an underwater clothesline!) are cut out and placed in the water scene.  Each of these is really detailed.  I love 'em, and the time you spent perfecting these, meowari.  Thanks a bunch. 

OH, and I totally forgot...  The tail of the cat is movable.  It swings all around.   Wink

I have received lots of pieces recently.  I figured they would all be pouring in at the same time so I held off on posting pictures, and the last 3 sets pretty much arrived around the same time.  However, I have been holding on to Alexampersandra's for over a week now.  Sorry for the holdup.   Wink
From Alexampersandra:

The ROYGBV piece is really clever.  The other has green gems and they are so reflective on the silver background.  Love them!
Next I have pieces from mlookyloo1:

Cute rainbow piece, and I couldn't have thought of a better orange than candy corn. 
Next, these are from seeuudee:

I love, love, love the rainbow piece.  It will most likely get the award for shiniest piece of the whole puzzle.  The blue, of course, is lovely too.
Next I have pieces from llisaredd.  We agreed to swap 6 pieces in the beginning.  Since our theme was so similar, I was excited I could do a red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple for her, and she did 3 rainbow pieces and 3 assigned color pieces for me.  Here's the rainbow ones....

She used such different things making each piece and they are so creative.  I'll still be altering lots of my own puzzle, and I'm really impressed that not one piece I got was something I had jotted down to do myself. 
And here's the purple, green, and red llisaredd did...

The red tootsie roll piece is great! The purple and green are both fuzzy, and the frog piece is so cute too.  All of these pieces were all so perfectly cut out and placed too.  Thanks for altering 6 for me, Lisa.

Thanks, everyone who sent me my most recent pieces.  I'm loving them all!

Now, I have to alter 24 pieces myself.  As soon as this hurricane/tropical storm moves along and isn't a threat to my immediate area, I'm planning on jumping right into altering the rest of my puzzle.  I couldn't resist putting together what I have so far,... and I'm loving it.

Here's the latest pieces I have recieved.  These are from Luvebuggy99

Love the tie-dye look of the rainbow one.  And they are both so bright and fit their color schemes so well.

These pieces are from KriSmith

Yellow submarine, complete with music!  The slight distress look of these is really interesting.  (And would you mind me asking, Kris, what you used to seal these with?  I like the finish, but don't think its anything I've used before.)

Thank you both!  Smiley

Love those beach chairs!

I got another set of pieces from CDEeeek that are awesome!

I see while I was able to get a picture of the glazed piece without reflection, it just darkened the whole picture.  They are really bright in person.
For my rainbow theme she did an artists palette.  One of my favorite things, so that was really cute.  And for the yellow she added assorted dimensional elements.  Love the little button in the corner.  And the background papers are perfect.  Thank you, Cynthia! 
   Towards the end I will post an in progress pic.  I still have pieces left over (that I wanted to do myself) but I took them out of the puzzle in strips.  When I have all my pieces sent back, I will have 4 parts that fit together, even if I don't have all my leftover pieces altered yet.
