Holiday Bling Blog Hop!


When I saw the post for the Holiday Bling Blog Hop, I jumped at the chance to participate.  I LOVE the holidays and I thought this would be a great way to begin the holiday season a little early!

This great hop was organized by:

The idea was create something for your partner - it could be jewelry, something for the house, an ornament - whatever you both decided....

My partner is the wonderful Debbie Rasmussen.
She has been at this longer than I have and she has been so kind to me.
The best thing about these hops & exchanges for me has been meeting new people who are so interesting and genuine!!

We decided to make jewelry - anything that we thought the other person would enjoy.

Well.... I absolutely love what Debbie sent me - she is so talented.
It really was like Christmas when I received the package in the mail.

Take a look:

Isn't it beautiful? - the bead work is stunning!

Love the ribbon....
I will definitely be wearing this over the holidays.

Did I mention that Debbie is from Alberta, Canada?
She sent along these gifts as well - I had to take the magnet off the fridge to take this picture.
How thoughtful.....:)

I hope the Debbie likes what I sent her as much as I love what she made for me!!
I'm in the holiday spirit already!

Check out her blog and everyone else who participated:

Happy Holidays!
