I must admit that I was REALLY excited when the groups were announced for this twelve days of Christmas swap, because, Jeri was in my group! I've been doing this swap now for a couple of years, and I think that this is the first year that I was in the same group as Jeri! Don't get me wrong, I enjoy receiving art from all the artists, however, I really get excited when I have the opportunity to swap with an artist that I've not swapped with in a while. I think the last time I swapped with Jeri - other than the fat book from earlier this year, which was a collected group effort, of course - was a tip-in swap from a couple of years ago.
And, as you might of guessed, Day 7 is Jeri's day!
Here's what the wrapping looked like ...
And inside was this ...
Anyway ... I really love this, it's so festive and adorably cute. I hope it is not wrong to hang it on the wall, because I think it would add a really nice touch the the stocking wall. (We don't hang our stockings on the chimney with care, because the tree is in the living room and the fireplace is in the family room, and we don't expect St. Nick to walk all through the house just to fill the stockings and leave our presents! All that activity would surely awaken everyone ... even the mouse.)
UGH ... corny, yes, yes, I know. Sorry.
OK, I'm out of here. Thank you Jeri, for such a cute and remarkably unique gift. I shall cherish it!
