2010 Christmas Matchbox Swap

Hello Everyone, I hope those of us who celebrate in the States had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I had a pleasant Holiday and company from out of town.

During the week of Thanksgiving I finally received my Matchbox package. For those of you that missed it. A Swap for All Seasons had a sign up for all those crafty and creative people who wanted to join in. She had 75 people sign up, and I was lucky to be one of them. The theme was to design 25 matchboxes how ever we wanted to and count the days till Christmas, like a calendar. It was hard at first but she would give us ideas on how to decorate them. We had a choice to design them all the same or do different ones. I did mine different then we put numbers on them from 1 thru 25 the. Each day you open a box with a gift. We sent off our packages, and to exchange with other participants, in exchange we would receive 25 matchboxes and display them each day in December to count down the days of Christmas. This is my package, and I was so excited when I received it.I opened one by one and laid them all together, Then finally I hung them on a tree which I will be sharing with everyone to see the little boxes with such creative things on them. They are so cute and would like to have them all year long to see. Will treasure them for life and generations to come. Hope you come visit us every day to see the gifts each day.

Finally my presents!!!
I laid them all for you to see.

Here come Santa Clause Here comes Santa Clause.

Christopher Clumbus is on his way to the Promise Land

Inspired by Pottery Barn Thanksgiving Collection, sense I can not afford to go and buy the sail boats from Pottery Barn, I decided to make my own sail boats.

My sail boats are an inspiration and to remember how one mans dream to travel and seek other places brought us to this country. I am sure everyone is just getting ready for the Holidays and see each other and gather with their family and friends.Wishing everyone a Happy and Joyful Thanksgiving and hope everyone has a great time in this Holiday of giving thanks for the great givings of the year. if it took a man dream to accomplish the New World, think of what great adventures we all have in the future.

Here are my sail boats made out of brown felt. Hoping everyone is enjoying your day.

She also included her hand made coke bottles that she designs and paints Santa's and I am sure other Characters on them. It is so nice to know these items where made from and Artist. To me they are priceless and will treasure for ever oh yes before I forget, she also included a Christmas card that dates back to 1940's.

Give Away From Beatrice Banks

Hello everyone sorry been gone for awhile been really busy with work, But sort of disappointed. With the hard resecion it's hard to find new business, as most of you know I am a Community Manager trying to employee people and give them the opportunity to work. But I have sent hundreds of letters and have not yet received not one answer. It's tough in these days. I guess we all have to pray and wait patiently.

While we do that go over and visit she is have a wonderful giveaway for Thanksgiving.

Well will also be doing some giveaways soon also so watch out post this coming Friday.

See everyone soon.
