2014 Advent Calender Swap!

Many of you may know that ever year I work on dolly advent calenders for one of my swap groups and this year I am so excited as all the items have arrived from my partners!
In our sewing group on line we have done an advent swap now for 4 years. Last year we changed the format so that we all sewed, bought or created 6 items for our partners advent calender and then we mailed them to our 4 partners. That we we all get an assortment of doll items made by each other.  The above photo is the first one I ever did and it was so much fun we decided to do it every year.

For 2012 We got smart! We used a 24 pocket over the door shoe holder to hold our gifts! This was a great idea and it makes wonderful doll clothes storage!
Last year I decided I would like to do one this year for Advent and the eight nights of Hanukkah, thanks to www.designmegillah.com 
So this year I am excited to do both!

This year Hanukkah is Tuesday December 16th to Wednesday December 24th 
 Here are the packages that have arrived for this years Advent Swap. I am looking forward to sharing these items as I open them through December. 
I hope you are inspired by today's post and that you may consider making your own Dolly Advent or 8 Night  wall hanging gifts for the Doll lover in your life.
I am already looking forward to our 2015 swap!
As with all my posts I would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment here or email me at karenmowen@gmail.com
