Holiday Swap goodies from Ellia

truly lovely

I was so amazed as I opened up the Holiday swap goodies from Ellia, holding each handmade object close to my eyes to appreciate all the incredible detail. Really, the pictures hardly do it justice - like a great work of art, you need to see it for yourself to fully appreciate it.

gorgeous fuzzy paper tiny details

It makes me so happy when things are wrapped lovingly - it reminds me of the way I wrap each Christmas, setting aside a little happy, quiet time to try to make each package perfect. And being completely rewarded when just one person notices the effort you took and lights up... :)

beautiful paper so cute!

There were so many goodies - gift tags, a book of ornament ideas, angels, and a big fabric template to make a cute little stuffed moose (Can't wait to start on that one!) Thank you Ellia, for putting together such a beautiful package, and for being such a wonderful artist. You can find her work for sale on Etsy: www.greenbeanbaby.etsy.com.
