On the first day of Christmas ...

This year I joined the Australian Art Sisters Yahoo Group 12 Days of Christmas Swap and today is Day 1, so I got to open a gorgeous gift handcrafted by Gaye Todd (  I got a bit excited and forgot to photograph the package before I ripped it open, but here's the packaging anyway (LOL).  Gaye created this gorgeous 2010 Calendar and I think it's a fabulous idea ... I've already hung it on my wall in front of my computer.

Here's more details of the beautiful collage Gaye created.

On another note, I've been following Tim Holtz' 12 Days of Christmas Tags and they are definitely worth seeing (visit Tim's blog here  Step-by-step instructions were provided on how to make each tag and I learned so much from the techniques he used.  As well as the gorgeous tags, Tim ran a competition each day for all those that followed the blog and left comments and on Day 9 I found out I'd won ... how exciting.  We had 24 hours to get in touch with Tim and then he would mail out a gift, so watch this space for a picture of whatever I get.
