Handmade Gift Exchange

This year, I participated in my first ever handmade craft exchange party over at Craftaholics Anonymous and I am SOOOOO glad I did. Honestly, I debated signing up at all because I thought
"there are so many crafters who are SO much better than me and I am just a twenty something newlywed who is a newbie in the craft world..."  I finally got up the courage to sign up because Linda said she was trying to get to 500 crafters this year and I thought "well alright, I want her to reach her goal."  So I did, and I can't WAIT until the next one that takes place in July.

In case you are lost, here is what we did.  Anyone can sign up with their email and mailing address and then Linda pairs you up with someone across the U.S. and you make them a craft of your choice and they make you one! How fun, right?

My exchange partner was Becky and here is what she made me:

I LOVVEEEEE it so much! I can't wait to see what she thinks of the craft I sent her! I'll post it once she recieves it, so I don't ruin her surprise!

Head on over to Craftaholics Anonymous to see all the handmade gifts that were exchanged! :)
