Christmas Swap

This year I again signed up for the Christmas Secret Santa Swap over at Chooky Blue's Blog.


My partner was Denice who lives in Michigan, USA...
Chooky's Swap has 2 parts; firstly a handcrafted gift which has involved some effort on behalf of the maker and this gift is not opened until Christmas Day or Christmas Eve as is the tradition in some European countries. 
The second part of the swap is a parcel containing a Christmas ornament which can be opened immediately. Well the other night I received an email from Denice saying she had received my parcel and had opened her ornament parcel. So now I can share what I made...

A little tree decoration made with small hexagons...

And in the middle, a special button I had...a Christmas Angel teddy no less! 
I also included a painted wooden bird ornament that I bought at some Christmas markets last month. When I was stalking Denice's blog looking for clues about her likes and any dislikes, I found out that she loves birds! 
The other gift I won't be able to show you until Christmas Day or because of the time zone differences will actually be Boxing Day here in Australia.

Never thought of using hexies for Christmas ornaments. The ornament is beautiful. The little teddy angel and the bird are great finds too!!
