Crafting to end 2010 and to usher in 2011

Christmas gifts to my in-laws:
One in a black holder:

And the other in white:

Some close-ups:

Swap pieces for 2011 calendar:

24 coasters stamped with 24 name of the month and adhered to 24 misted cardstock. 24 butterflies atop 48 vellum, 24 glossy and 24 metallic flowers. 96 blings coloured and heat set. 1224 numerals stamped inside 24 grids.

144 lines scored on 24 cardstock strips folded into waterfall mechanism.

Eight (whew!) doilies cut into thirds.

Super "siong", extremely exhausting, relentless during construction, rewarding at the finish.
My finished pieces:

What I received:

The wonderfully talented girls:

We survived! And crazy as we are, we have already started planning the next swap.
