The Advent Swap

Now I'm getting excited. December is here, it's the run up to the busiest time of the year for so many of us miniaturists, especially when we're involved with a Christmas swap.
This year Kaisa asked me to do an Advent Swap with her! It meant making 25 gifts for each other.
This is what arrived from Kaisa! Wrapped in her favourite Tilda paper.
There in the front is No1 which I opened this morning to find this tiny mug which Kaisa has so thoughtfully personalised with the faces of my twin grandsons!
This is Harry.
And on the other side is Oliver!
I hope my photos are good enough for you to see them; the mug is so tiny!
Such a thoughtful gift Kaisa, I love it! Thank you!!!
this is what I sent to Kaisa.

I'm having a great Saturday, I hope you are too.
