In sad news, the pictures of my gifts are lost somewhere but I have pictures of the gifts that I received. That said while I don't have pictures - here is the link to the tutorial that I used to make my gifts:
The premise behind the party was just like that of a cookie exchange. You bring 6 presents, you get 6 presents back. You bring twelve presents, you get twelve presents back. In my case 6 was the lucky number.
We started the night off with drinks, appetizers and dessert-type snacks. From there we all drew a number and got in line around the gift table. We were not told who brought what gift so that made picking your gifts each time very difficult! Also you had to plan for the fact that for some of the gifts there were only 6 meaning that the next time you got in line....those gifts could already be gone!! Each time around you drew a number again to get in line and pick a gift for that round.
SO ---without further hesitation here are the gifts I received!!
chipboard Christmas album
notebook cover with antique fabric and lace
fabric cornucopia with antique fabric and lace
embroidered gift bag with decorated ornament
milk glass pincushion
When Heirloom Creations posts videos/photos from the event I will post a link to them so you can see the events in action!
When the night ended we talked about having another party sometime this spring so I will keep you all posted :)
And now to prepare for my Christmas-time sewing retreat -- lots of fabric to cut!
Have a great rest of the week!
