The last swap I participated in for 2011 was a Tag Book Swap hosted by Jean of Lilac Lane Livery. A bit of altered art is a fun distraction from stitching and helps to get those creatice juices flowing. My partner was Donna of Red Apple Junction, here's the gorgeous package she made for me including a bundle of buttons and other great pieces.
Oops the photo doesn't show the sweet charm closure on the bag, must get a photo!

The tags are all so very pretty! Thank-you so much Donna, they're now on display in my craft room.
(I'll have to get myself one of those crackle stamps, makes a fabulous background)

Here's the package I put together for Donna

Lots of fun putting these together!

Just one more post on swaps received, I'll do that tomorrow night.
Tomorrow I'm off to do a bit of stitching and catching up with these lovely Ladies, Fee and Helen.

Hi There Jo...I recently had a swap with Donna too and yes I agree papercrafts are a nice diversion. However; I need to divert back to my sewing now though; as I've been on the papercrafts trail for 12!
Many Blessings for 2012
