Swaps for me!

I just realised today that I have not shared photos of the wonderful gifts I received from Glamourgirl ladies recently.

The first gift resulted from The March Swap, I sent a journal and have shared that earlier on my blog, but here is what I received from the very talented Debbie, who is the 'owner' of Glamourgirlstamps...
Debbie has made me the sweetest little book, the binding is very clever and I am hoping she will tell us all how she did it! The words on the front say 'Where Dreams thrive and Grow'.
Debbie has also included a gorgeous tag holder complete with two tags. Thanks so much Debbie!

The second swap I took part in was a decorated envelope. This time I swapped with Ngaere, this lady is super talented as well. Isn't her envelope amazing...and inside I discovered a matching tag! Thank you to you as well Ngaere, I am sure the postman was blowen away when he found he had such a flash envelope to deliver!!

I love taking part in swaps, I have the most wonderful collection of inspiring, varied and stunning art works, all gained through swaps. I always love everything I receive, and have learnt so much from the talented ladies with whom I swap.
These days I just don't seem to find the time to take part in as many swaps as I would like, but of course I'm still sneaking the odd one in here and there!

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
