Gifts are always fun---to give and to receive!

Lori, of Lori Anderson Designs http://www.lorianderson.blogspot.com , arranged for another fun activity this month. A bead exchange from our stash for those who wanted to participate. Since I have alot of stash, it was right up my alley. We were to exchange a matchbox full of goodies. She and I ended up partners and here is the beautiful box I got in the mail from her. She went all out with her beautifully decoupaged box that was full to the brim with goodies to get my creative juices flowing---
pearls, swarovskies, gemstones, brass,...

lucite flowers, artisan boro beads, polymer roses, sterling clasp and more...
I sent a box her way yesterday, that I hope she will find as delightful as I found mine. Alas, I forgot to photograph the box or the contents...but I think there were some fun things included. I also did a side exchange with Nicole Valentine of NValentine Designs that I hope she will enjoy. It was fun sifting thru my stash looking for things I thought each artist might enjoy using for her designs.
I can tell Lori put alot of thought into the lovelies she sent me--they were just the little kind of treasures that delight...now to find a minute to play with them!!!!
