Secret Santa Surprise!

For someone who loves presents, receiving them from other crafters/artists is so much fun!  I signed up on Facebook when Nicole (lilyella) posted her Secret Santa project. 

Then I got nervous...what would I make?  Did I already have something appropriate and good enough to send???  How will I wrap it as that was part of the project?   

Creating under pressure is not my forte.  Creating under pressure right before Christmas was an even larger challenge.  While I pondered what to do - time was running out. 

Well - I did manage to finish my Secret Santa and sent it off to Maryland to Lisa on the last day I was supposed to mail it.  Whew!

I received my Secret Santa on Christmas Eve.  I was so surprised when I opened my package to find a lovely charm and bead bracelet and earrings!  I tried my best to get a good picture and after about ten shots - this was the best I could do.  It's black and crystal beads with silver charms.  Thank you, Christy!  Now I need to get an new outfit to go with my new jewelry!

I can't wait for next year - I'm already thinking about what I will make. Hopefully I will start earlier now that I know there might be another opportunity - what are the chances?

Hope you had a great holiday season and a very Happy New Year!
