PFATT Christmas Ornament Swap.

Hi Everyone,
I have been anxiously awaiting a package that came in the mail today!!!! This year I took part in the annual PFATT Christmas ornament swap.  I made 4 ornaments and sent them to the swap queen then you receive 4 different ornaments from 4 other Pfatties.
I love my ornaments!!! Love LOVE LOVE!!!!! Here is what I got.
Clockwise starting at top left is Cindy Conrad of The pixies thimble,  Joyce Stahl of Enchated Productions, Lori Davis of Vintage Palette Art and the stocking was not tagged but as soon as I find out I will add to this post.  I have been soooo Lucky all year long and what a wonderful, magical Christmas present I have received. Here they are right at home on our family Christmas Tree :)

Aren't they all just wonderful!

Here are the ones I made for the swap but I'm not sure who has received which yet.
Candy Cane Gentleman
The North Star
Circus Snowman
Christmas Angel

I can't wait to find out who got my ornies. This was a lot of fun!  
Best of all, I get to be swap queen next year!!! Woohoo!!!!
Merry Christmas Everyone!
