2014 WoW Christmas Ornament Swap: Set No 7

The lovely Deb in Florida, USA a-l-s-o swapped a set of cookie cutter ornaments with Iris in New York State, USA, so here is the first set of cookie cutter ornaments in this series, two little Birdies in Christmas trees, and a Star Snowman (also with a birdie, if you look really close!):

Wings of Whimsy: Christmas Ornament Swap 2014Again I spot tulle, glass glitter and vintage wallpaper! But I think I can also see dictionary pages and sheet music? And I’m very curious about the glitter used on the inside of the little snowman ornament, as well as the snowman himself? I love, love, love the tattered and thorn look of him, and the tiny bird he is holding! I also wonder about the second ornie with the bird, the little star decor somehow makes me think of the ocean, and I wonder if this is a typical bird for Florida, living on the shores or something? And what are the berries(?) hung from the top of the tree? I think the red cardinal, nesting in a Christmas tree is absolutely gorgeous too!

Deb: I’m sure you’ll eventually be reading this, and I’d love to hear from you some more, since our email communication has been lacking a little with all your computer hardships…;-) Please write a comment, so we can all know a little more about your beautiful pieces!

Finally: I think this post shows that those cookie cutter ornies can be pretty darned cute too 😀 😀 😀

Did you miss out on the planning of this swap? This is what my swappers signed up for back in September:

  • Each swap is for a set of 3 ornaments. Either 1 tart tin swap or 1 cookie cutter swap, swapped with one swap buddy
  • Deadline November 15th to craft your ornaments, take pictures and get the packages ready
  • Send pictures to me of the finished ornaments
  • Alert me when the swapped ornaments arrive at their new home

  1. Deb did a wonderful job on all the ornaments, but I confess ,I am in love with the little snowman. I purchased some little snowies yesterday and will be copying this star. I love the way she finished the backs, as they a have a bad habit of turning when you are not looking.Thank you

  2. I must confess, I totally love them all, and want to try them all too. But that´s typical for me, I just never get enough, but want it all ha ha ha, just one thing, that´s not with me, and that´s time and ofcause the little detail, that I haven´t been able to find any of these tins or cutters around here yet LOL, but I really want to try all I´ve seen, as I think, they´ve all been sooo awesome and sooo beautiful, and so are these here, absolutely stunning all of them. You did an awesome jobon these here Deb, well done sweetie.
    Have a wonderful time here now everyone and lots of great fun for christmas.

    1. Hello Dear! Might I suggest making tart tin ornies for Valentine or even Easter? That way you can get started a-f-t-e-r Christmas, but don’t have to wait until next Christmas to decorate with them…lol xoxoxo

  3. HI Gunnvor, I did just see this 🙂 The glitter in the Christmas trees is German Glass Glitter from Sav-On-Crafts. Th glitter in the star is mica and I think that also came from Sav-On-Crafts (you can find them online:http://www.save-on-crafts.com/) . I did use dictionary pages and the snowman is a little ceramic ornament that I aged with paints. The berries are actually some hard little nuts that I bought along with some other dried material at the flea market. I have no idea what they are LOL. So happy that you all liked them and thank you for your kind words. I will be blogging about this swap soon on my poor neglected blog.http://www.debsvintagesoul.blogspot.com/

    1. Thank you so much Dear! I’m so happy you seem to be able to write comments again! Are your computer issues finally behind you? I think we are all in love with your little snowman. Is it ceramic, or some other material? xoxoxo

    1. Thank you Nancy 🙂 I am very happy that I initiated the swap, it has been such a delight to see all the variations and all the talent people have put into this little project 😀 xoxoxo
