Craft Swap Show Off!

Thanks so much to everyone who participated in the homemade craft swap!  I can't speak for everyone, but I really had fun making my project and I hope it was well received :)  I loved getting the emails from everyone with the pictures of their gift!  They all turned out so well and I'm excited to share them now with everyone!!
  These were made by Emily Maxwell for my sister Natalie.  She made a necklace pendant, re-usable sandwich wrapper as well as a skirt and headband.  Arent' they darling strung up on a line?
Erin made these bow ties and bead and knot fabric necklaces for Shauna and her little boy.  She didn't even need to do the bow ties, just threw them in because she is awesome like that.
Here is Shauna's craft she made for Becky.  Becky said to make whatever Shauna felt like so she came up with this cute Halloween sign all on her own.  I love how it turned out!
Here is what Anna made for Jet.  They are tin can luminaria's that she personalized with Jet's last name.  A very clever idea!!  I love it :)
Nicole made this darling Halloween table runner for Anna.  Can't you just picture some cute pumpkins in the middle of this?
Natalie made this darling Christmas tree for Erin.  I love the colors that she chose and the red frame is a nice touch!

This two pictures are what I made for Emily M.  I wasn't smart enough to take one picture with both of them in it, so now you get two.  I made her a Thanksgiving table runner and some headbands for her girls.
Nicole was lucky enough to receive this beautiful jewelry hand made by my talented SIL Becky
And last but not least, Jet made this burlap wreath for me!  It was a wonderful surprise!  I've been wanting an all purpose wreath for our door but I've been way to cheap to buy one!!  I have loved coming home to see this on our door!  Thanks Jet!

Everyone did such a great job and I definitely want to make a lot the the ideas that were shared! People that participated were scattered around the country.  We had people in Maryland, Texas, Wisconsin, Utah, and Colorado.  I hope everyone liked what they got!  Thanks for playing :)
