My M.E. Box from Vicki

This year Vicki from over at Cherry Chick Jewelry and I exchanged some Christmas goodies which, of course, were Mary Engelbreit inspired. I made for her 25 little M.E. matchboxes hanging from a M.E. yo-yo Christmas wreath. We both needed a bit of propping up this holiday season so our little exchange did the trick perfectly. A gift from a friend always boosts the spirits and puts a smile on one’s face. Thank you so much, Vicki, for thinking of me. I love my box, I DARE anyone to touch my M.E. pen, and I cannot wait to use my note cards and my rhinestone goodie... BUT, best of all are my Cherry Chick cherry earrings. You are the best jewelry maker in the whole wide USA. I adore the watch you made me, and now I have a pair of your darling earrings. I am one lucky gal, and feel so fortunate to have made friends with such lovely people as you and Debby since I started blogging. It was great fun swapping with the two of you. Happy Holidays to you, my friend.

The M.E. paper she used is so Christmasy, and she covered the inside of the box with the same paper stuffing it with bright and shiny red tinsel pieces. Under all of that red were my little goodies.

Isn’t this the cutest little box top? I surely think so!

Here are my little goodies: my note cards, my pen, and rhinestone cherries.

Finally, here are my precious cherry earrings. Vicki is such a talented artist, and I just love all the things she creates. Her work is beautiful, and I am gradually acquiring a little collection of it with the pins and pendants she has made for me along with my watch and earrings. Again, thank you, Vicki, from the bottom of my heart.

This post is also a part of Vicki’s M.E. Mondays. Be sure to stop by her site to see other precious M.E. posts this week.
