Last year I found a blog : ART JOY STUFF   

And a new friend Kimberly.

I at once loved what she created and sells in her Etsy shop

And have purchased several beautiful things.
So when Kimberly sweetly asked, if we should swap,I was thrilled!

Look at the lovely tag she made me! It shimmers
so beautifully.

This is the BEAUTIFUL heart I got,
See how lovely all fits together, with the wonderful
image and the gorgeous old bits and pieces ,Kimberly
always uses in her lovely art.
I love it !

She added the most sweet little tags  for me also ,
as a birthday gift -so very kind and loving of her.
I love them and their tinynes ( 5*5 cm)
and see the number 7 round tag-also so 
beautifully shimmering.
I guess you all know I love shimmer :-)

I had difficulties taking a good photo of Kimberly`s other birthday 
gift to me...but if you click my photoes you can see them better.
Isen`t it the dearest wonderful little porcelain doll swepped in lovely thin
old lace-and so wonderfully decorated with the old watch face,
and beautiful buttom

Dear Kimberly,-Thankyou  so much , you made me very
happy,with your beautiful gifts.

This is the heart I made for her, she had asked for something with a bit of
driftwood,so I added a few wonderful pieces,to this
natures heart.

And wrote my thankyou for the swap on the bach of this card.

Thankyou again dear Kimberly.

And also thankyou to all of you dear followers, new and old- I`m so happy
you are here visiting me, and commenting .
 I wish you all a beautiful rest of the week.

I know I have reached 500 followers, and will soon have a giveaway !

Hei kjære Dorthe. Så mye fint du har vist i dine siste innlegg. Nydelig.

Ja, jeg elsker Danmark og neste gang kanskje vi drar lenger sør og besøker deg (smil).
Ha en fin fredag

Klem fra meg

Mom E. said...

How much fun the two of you have had, thinking and planning for each other's gifts. You both are very talented!

I love you dolls! I have gone back and forth about making dolls, I have done some doll making, all different kinds, but was never really happy with the way they turned out. I have a pattern for a fairy doll I have decided to make, just because you inspired me!
Thanks so much!

A beautiful fun swap you participated in dear Dorthe.
The heart from your friend is so special, I love the blue colour and the precious images she used.
The heart you sent to her is "so you" with the piece of driftwood. I now associate driftwood with you :)
Thank you for sharing this swap with us.

Hi Sweetie,
I know this is an old post but I'm catching up & had to comment. OMG, these hearts make my heart skip a beat~ You think I'd get tired of hearts but everyone I see is so unique. Especially these 2. The blue she used is beautiful! And those tags she made.....I must go check her out. And the heart you made for her. Well, I think you know how I love that one!

Jillayne said...

Another wonderful Swap Dorthe, filled with many splendid things.
I like the little tags too - they are very sweet and pretty. I think you both were lucky indeed!
