A Few ATC and Christmas Swaps

There was a set of missing ATCs in the earlier Round Robin swap over at Paper Traders. On the replacement set that came, I added origami morning glory,  paper cutting umbrella, saxophone and leaf. And off they went to the 4th person for more embellishment. 
Love owls?  I'm so happy to receive these owl ATCs from Debra Claxton (USA) - top piece, and Eileen K (USA) - bottom pieces, from the Paper Traders Oct ATC speed round swap. 
I did mine with a tatted owl.
Eileen also generously enclosed extra ATCs she did for a few previous swaps. Oh, wow! 
For the Christmas ATC swap hosted by Nikki Smith (USA), I sent these.. the wrapped up one, with the ATC booklet on quotes on gifting, is meant as a secret Santa exchange.  I also sent along a tatted flower which I hope Nikki will like.

Received my Christmas swap from [going clockwise from top-left corner] Jo Murray (Australia), Barb Adams (USA), Susan Peeler (USA) and Nikki.  The bottom ATC is my secret Santa piece from Barb.
I didn't have much time to do more Christmas crafts, only tatted holly and berries for 2 large wooden pegs and folded a troop of Santa Claus.  Christmas came and past in a wink!

Kristine does have a flair for drawing, don't you think?  These, she drew on A3 or bigger papers.  After these, she is now working on paper clay.  Last few days to play before school starts!

December ATC Session @Bishan Library

We have come to our last session for the year.  I found a few interesting Christmas origami models and a very cute Santa Claus. So, we were folding away during our last ATC session.
Christmas ATCs I did this year with iris folding and origami.
The smallest Santa is done with 1.5cm squares.

Keethi, who just learnt tatting from me, found out about our ATC session, did this Christmas ATC.
Theme for 8 Jan 2015 ATC session is "New Year".
