Gifties on their way!

My gifties all wrapped up and on their way! I joined a Giftie Exchange - 12 Days of Christmas!!  I have Day 1 so wanted to make sure that my little packets arrived on time for the December 13 deadline.  I will be revealing the contents on December 13 once my swap partners have opened their little packets.  It was a fun project and I am looking forward to sharing with all of you what I made.  I have a few extra so I will be hosting a GIVEAWAY starting December 13 right here on my blog.  So come back and participate!!
I wrapped my little gifts in hand decorated paper which I made this summer when I sister was visiting and we took a shot at doing monoprinting.  It was lots of fun and I made several large sheets.  I cut them up into 8.5" x 5.5" pieces, folded them into three, inserted the little gift and stitched both ends with my sewing machine making sure to include my Day 1 tag in the process.  I hope they will enjoy the giftie and will be able to use the decorative paper in their creations - would work great for serendipity or collage of any kind.
So be back here on December 13 and see what I created!

(My apologies to everyone - turns out I have been an eager beaver and sent out my gifties very early!!  The deadline is December 13th for opening our Day ONE gifts so I have corrected the above info)
