The Christmas TDIPT Swap!!!

Oh lucky me! My secret swap partner was Karen of Brady Bears Studio! She makes the most beautiful vintage mohair bears you have ever laid eyes on...her work has been featured two years running in Early American Life.
You wont believe the goodies i got!!! First off i have to talk about the fabulous reindeer bear cupboard hangar she made...Oh i love it soooo much!!!

He has a special place of honor in my house and i found myself admiring him many times a day!!! I need a proper name for him...i'll be pondering that...that way our conversations can be more personal...
My box was filled with goodies i tell ya...chocolates, coffee, an awesome glass reindeer ornament and statue and even goodies for Riley which included a wonderfully illustrated book about a hen, some edible bracelets, and the cutest lil reindeer painting that Karens daughter did for her!
I mean just look at the treasures!!!

Thank you Karen!!!!

I love this sweet bear of a reindeer too - isn't Karen's work phenomenal?

this swap has just been the best ever and it's like everyone put their best foot forward. There isn't ONE swap that I would not have LOVED to have for my very own - (but I like to think that the one I received from Paula was the creme de la creme ♥ )
Merry Christmas, buddy!
