Sweet Goodness Swap

Ok, My swap partner Amy received her goodies I sent her for the Sweet Goodness Springtime in Paris Swap, so now I can show you all what I sent her!

It was Amy's first swap so I tried to make it special for her! I sent her two necklaces I made using vintage chandelier crystals, and other vintage goodies! One is a very bold piece that hung from gorgeous, double sided satin ribbon in black and white. The Theme for the swap was french and blue, white and black, in case you couldn't tell!

I painted the vintage chandelier crystal with glass paint, and put a little gold foil around the edges.

This is the ribbon that secures the necklace.

I also made this journal for Amy. It was my first time making something like this with paper, and while I had fun doing it I think I'll leave this craft for people who are really amazing at it like Alisa, at Life is a Beautiful Place to Be.

Here is the other necklace I made Amy. This one is more "everyday". A thick antiqued brass chain, and a vintage chandelier crystal that was collaged with some vintage french text, and a little more gold leaf!

I didn't take pics of all the other little goodies I sent so I swiped some from Amy! She took some great pics of everything, even the little not I wrote her in French!

I had so much fun putting this all together! Thanks Amy for being such a Fabulous Swap partner! I'll add pics of goodies when they arrive!

I also wanted to share what I made for the Enchanted Swap. I already shared what I received from my lovely Partner Heather
Now it's my turn!

I dubbed her the Cupcake princess since I knew how fond of the sweet treat she was! Her is the tiara I made her, as well as a royal cupcake scepter!

This a a cute necklace I also made for Heather.

Vintage beads in yummy candy shades, and of course a vintage collaged chandelier crystal. This was has a sweet little blue bird, some vintage text and some pretty flowers.

It makes me so happy to share what I make with people who really enjoy the items! Thank You Heather and Amy for making these swaps so much fun!

Till' next time...
