End Of The Year Swaps That Were Never Posted!

I just noticed that I never posted the Christmas and Winter swaps that I participated in, so I'll share them now.  It'll look like winter in Illinois tomorrow anyway.........Winter please go away already!
Below is an altered Christmas clipboard that I created for Michele (Nook And Cranny).  Michele and I have swapped before and she NEVER disappoints!

Below is the clipboard Michele (Nook And Cranny) created for me.  Isn't it lovely?  I just love all of the little touches and details!

Winter pocket letter made by me.

Christmas pocket letter made by me.

Another Christmas pocket letter created by me.

The beautiful pocket letter below was created by Karla (Cozy Cottage).  I love the banner and that gorgeous angel.  Forgive me, but I don't remember what pocket letter I created for Karla!!!!

Hi Kelly, wow love the clip board you designed and also received. These are so special for a desk or to be used in many different ways. You do an amazing job with your pocket letters. Love the different styles for winter and Christmas.
You received a special pocket letter too.
Well, the warm days for us turned to rain, cold and wind today. I guess Mr. Winter is giving us a taste of winter we didn't really get this season.

Hope you have a great week my friend. Thanks for stopping by.
Blessings. xo

Love your altered clipboard Kelly and your pocket letters are all wonderful, I've never made those before and you have inspired me to give them a try! Amazing swaps also that you got in return, what lovely creations. Thank you so much for your kind words on my blog and so sorry to hear of your Annie's passing, no matter how long ago it occurred, the pain never goes away. Sending hugs your way and thank you again for your compassion, Deb xo

Oh my Kelly your clipboard is just Gorgeous, I just love these colors, great vintage photo and like the music paper for the background, and can I say that your embellishing on this is out of this world fantastic!! I think this is my favorite of all your projects, can you tell :)
Those pocket sheets are so cute, love the little bears, snowman and penguin. The second with the traditional colors is cool to, like the vintage feel it has. The Christmas carol one is very cool, every little pocket a work of art!

So glad you didn't pass these over and shared them today!!
