I've got cards from the b-day card swap from Wendy, Dixie, Robyn, Maggie, Peggy and Thea so far and a wonderful hand made rose card from Maria another blogger friend. Thank you all so much! xox
So today I start posting pictures from the things we've created and altered on my art party, which was a really lovely and also satisfying experience, that I can only recommend to all of you!
My mum for example has altered an old white woodden card box with pansies, one of her favourite flowers. She is going to use it for storing her seed packets.

It's just a three hours drive away from here and I wonder now why we don't go there more often.
The mountain you can see in the background is the highest and most famous one in the Harz, it's called The "Brocken"
This is where witches and devils are supposed to live and I even saw them lol and took a photo of course:

A beautiful pink brooch, 4 embroidered wine glass coasters in a net lace bag, a mini puzzle from one my fave artists Marjolein Bastin, pink scented shoe stuffers, a gorgeous little turqouise tea pot with butterflies, a beautiful pink rose bud capsule, an adorable white chrotched doily and a wonderful yellow towel with a green embroidered border, an embossed magnetic verse card and 4 cute little cards with envelopes. I love it all started with the santa box it was in and it was so worth the wait! It 's a perfect treat and I feel really spoiled by Cindy. :D Thank you so much dear Cindy!
And here is a photo of all my 25 Christmas cards I've got this year thanks to Robyn's swaps. I never got so much before and without the swap I would have got only 8.

And I just have to show you this photo that my sister took and sent to me. They always lay peanuts and walnuts under their Christmas tree outside and apples in a basket and then they can sit at their dining table and watch the birds and the squirrels having dinner as well :D
