The 4th Annual PFATT Ornie Swap!!!!!!


(Banner made by Samiamcreations for Pfatt members.)

This year, I had the honor and pleasure of being in charge of the annual PFATT (Primitive Folk Art Talk & Tea) eBay group ornie swap! Every year for the past 4 years, my ebay group of Pfatties has an ornie swap at Christmas time. We each make 4 ornaments and send them to whoever is the swap queen. She waits until all the participants have mailed their 4 ornies to her and then she sends each participant a set of 4 different ornies. Then everyone anxiously awaits the arrival of their Pfatt sisters ornies to add to their tree! It is the most favorite of all the PFATT swaps!


Here's a pic of the ornies that I got this year and who they were made by...........


(From left to right: Frogcicle by Pam Gracia of SoftintheHead, my Enchanted Productions snowman ornie by Joyce Stahl, my Sparkly Snowman head ornie by Cindy Conrad of Pyewackitprimitives & Cindy Lou Whimise ornie by Christy Meyers of Ccswhimsies.)


Here's a picture of my tree with lots of Pfatt ornies from the past 3 years.

I had so much fun doing this! I felt like Santa Claus! A PFATT Santa Claus! HoHoHo!!! I hope all the other Pfatties post their ornies on their blogs so you all can enjoy looking at them too!

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!!
