Day 9 - Danita Salcido

Day 9 of our 12 days of Christmas exchange comes from Danita Salcido of Mexico, better known as Danita Art.

Danita's wrapping is of simple elegance - a brown paper wrapper - with a hand stamped tag.

Danita creates the cutest original drawings of little girls who resemble Danita herself -- and these darling images have rapidly become her trademark. Danita included this tiny card in her package, which bears the image of one of her little ladies...

And here's another one. Aren't they precious?

Danita's ornament is a wonder to behold. It's heart shaped and covered in waxy goodness. I have no idea how she made this, but I am intrigued!  Is it paper clay? Possibly so. It is painted, antiqued and covered with sweet smelling beeswax.  And embedded into the wax is one of Danita's original drawings.

Look close at the details.  This little girl appears to be tucked away in her bed and fast asleep, which reminds me of The Night Before Christmas story.
"The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugarplums danced in their heads,"
This precious one is waiting for Santa Claus to arrive!

Thank goodness she won't have to wait too much longer. And I hope we don't have to wait too much longer to find out how Danita made these little wonders.  Let's keep checking her blog to see if she will give us more details...

Thanks, Danita, for the lovely ornament. It is beautiful!
