Kathi's Five Star Christmas Swap

I recently participated in Kathi's Five Star Christmas Swap. It was a lot of fun to collaborate with other miniaturist. Everyone has their own distinctive, wonderful style. (I'm sorry this photo is so blurry--I was too lazy and rushed to take the time to get the tripod!) I love everything that Kathi made-- the books, poinsettia, beaded tree sculpture, basket of tiny (real!) pine cones, and the beautiful beaded wreath!
This little cabinet and box full of Christmas goodies was created by Kim. It was her first miniature swap, and she went above and beyond!
Look at all the wonderful little goodies! It was hard to choose my most favorite thing-- I love the gingerbread house so much-- and that hand-stitched stocking is wonderful!
Karin made this fabulously detailed plate of goodies (the photo doesn't do it justice) and this wonderful holly wreath.
I just love this trio that Deborah created. I love the beaded tabletop tree. The bells are already hanging above the front door of the Little Pink House... and isn't that little clay snowman just adorable!?
I actually squealed when I opened this! I had wanted to create this, but didn't even know where to begin. Jaime is so creative, and did a wonderful job! Again, I apologize for the terrible photography on this post. The pictures don't do these items any justice. Everything has such wonderful detail, and I did a poor job of capturing it on film. Please stop by Kathi's blog or Deborah's blog. Their photos are so great! If you do visit, you will get to see what I created for the swap. I forgot to make an extra for myself! I really want you all to see what I made, so please do visit them!
