Finished Signs, and a Package from Jen at the Cottage Nest

I think that is my longest title to date.

In the previous post I was making a mess with the glitter and glue. Now here are the finished products. I hope you like them.

It is hard to tell by the pictures, but they are very glittery and sparkly. Someday maybe I will open an Etsy shop. (Click to make larger)



So as I was cleaning my house this afternoon, a package arrived at my door. It was from Jen of The Cottage Nest. http://thecottagenest.blogspot.com/ We are participating in a scrappy swap. (Things you could use to make things, like buttons, stickers, fabric, paper, letters, book pages etc. Now here is the cool thing. We sent a package to one person, and received a package from another. That way you got to meet twice as many people and make new blog friends.









I got all of this great stuff from Jen. Thank you so much Jen, it's amazing. I will have so much fun creating with all of this. You are the nicest. She took such care in sending me just the right stuff. I love the black and white toile paper. I am going to make something right away with that.

She even sent me my name in glittery letters. Some tickets, buttons, a Victoria Magazine, Papers and seam binding, tags and trinkets. How fun!!!! It made my day!

Swapping is the greatest.

I also had fun making a box of goodies for Cynthia in Texas. http://springmontcottage.blogspot.com/ I hope she likes it.



Have a great day my friends!

Love the glittery letters too!

Terri and Bob said...

You lucky duck! I think your etsy shop would be a wonderful thing!

Allison said...

Hi Rosemary, your glittery signs are great, and totally worth the mess you made along the way. Glitter does have a way of getting every where doesn't it - not a bad thing to have around though. It makes just about everything look better. The crafting goodies you got from Jen are so great. Such fun stuff. I have that same glittery pack that she sent to you. I did a lot of fun stuff with it. I'm looking forward to seeing what you make!
