Sweet Snails

For the month of July ornament for Val's Year of Enchantment swap was to do a snail. I am borrowing the pictures that Michele took of my stuff because my camera is only working when it wants to and it didn't want to work when I was ready to mail these little guys off to her. So thank you Michele!

I made her these little snail ornaments out of felt.

and then I made her a couple of little snail gift bags and a seashell candle and then some other goodies. The candle was fun to make and so easy!

This is the package Michele sent to me. Everything is so beautiful!
Wallpaper, a paper flower, roses, ribbons, tissues, a snail pill holder , a very pretty necklace with a shell on it, tissues, a basket, a vintage pill holder and a nice card.
Oh yeah, and the elegant snail that Michele made for me.

Thanks for a great swap Michele!
Everything is so beautiful and it was really nice to get to know you!

Look at all the cool stuff! I just love your snails--they make me smile. I hope you can stop by my blog soon, 'cause I recently posted about a baby blanket and snail amigurmi toy I made (crocheted) for my new grand-nephew!
Who knew anything that's slimy in real life could be so cute in fantasy, LOL?

Thanks for the very nice posting you did also. I loved your little snails so much, I got out my stuff and copied them somewhat and made some for my granddaughters. They just thought they were so cute! (they are ages 8 7 6 and 4)
