Christmas Mini Swaps: I've done it..Holiday Inc: is dusted off

Good day, good evening and goodnight..for me anyways ;)

Now that we are in December I wanted to show a few of the mini swaps I've done the last month. I have sat on my lazy mini butt for long enough! Its time for action and Holiday Inc. is back on the worktable!

My first swap was with a fine lady that actually lives locally to me we are within a hours distance form each other so we got to do this swap in person ;)

Traci over at http://www.tinytraci.blogspot.com/ made me some beautiful Christmas minis for Holiday Inc.

As you can see here she created this amazing Christmas wreath decorated with candies, silver and red ornaments just beautiful!. She taught me how to make the bow on her wreath so I learned a new skill as well!
 
The stocking is another amazingly crafted beauty, its sewn so fine you cannot even see the stitching. It is decorated with pine, perfect little apple, candy cane and of course another fine looking bow!
 
Stop by her blog and say hi, I expect great things from her!
 
Thank you again Traci! I look forward to our next meet hon!
 
I also wanted to show you a few of the Christmas minis that I swapped with Kelly over at the Greenleaf Dollhouses Forum. Kelly was the first place winner of the Spring fling this year and sooooo well deserved! She is such a lovely lady..and absolutely amaaaaaaazing miniaturist!
 
Have a look at some of her houses when you get a chance...she is just awesome..so prepare for awesomeness! Kelly's FB
 
Kelly and I are both dragon lovin gals so of course we swapped a couple dragons but I will show you the Christmas minis for this post.
 
As you can see here we have a awesome gingerbread board with a gingerbread towel and frosting for decorations. She sent me these perfect winter pillows and of course a dragon sneaking into the stocking, peeking in on his treats! 
 
Thanks again Kelly you continue to inspire me!

I did mention Holiday Inc. Yes..I have ignored the ole girl long enough! She is back on the work table dusted sorted and ready for work. I have gotten so many amazing and wonderful gifts from you fine folks all around the world it is time to start placing them in Santa's workshop.
 
I decided that after learning a few new techniques from the Treetop Creature Shop that I would update the room a bit.. So I have stripped it down and am preparing a new vision.
 
I hope all your Chrismismini dreams come true! See you folks soon ;)
