Parisian Beauty Swap

The sweet "Parisian Beauty"swap mentioned in my last post brought me three delightful ATCs from other swappers.  And I received a 'party favor' as well, from swap host Kimberly!

 Kimberly sent along these very pretty earrings. I love them!  And they were so cleverly presented, strung on the tiny mannequin tag, mounted to vintage French text. I will feel tres chic when wearing them!

Three variations on the theme, from three talented crafters:
Left, from Kimberly, artJoystuff.   Middle, from Susanne Talbot (no blog).   Right, from Sherry, Creatology

Notice the paper I used in the background of these photos?  It is the beautiful handmade creation of Kathy from KathyInOzarks . I won several pieces of it in the Grow Your Blog drawing that she had recently. I can't wait to use it in a special project.  I love all the texture. Thanks again, Kathy.

  3. What a great post...love the ATC's you received also. I Enjoy Kim's swaps. Your pretty pink paper reminds me of a summer my sister visited and we made homemade paper. We both still have some of it.."HOARDING" it. But I have used up a lot of the pink. I think this summer I might do some more of that..It's pretty simple and some new colors would be fun. Have a great weekend.
