Handmade Gift Exchange

A few weeks ago I signed up to participate in the Handmade Gift Exchange hosted by http://www.craftaholicsanonymous.net/ . I've been racking my brain trying to decide what to make. I finally settled on an idea that reflects things I enjoy and I hope my exchange partner will too. I'm not giving hints because I'm mailing her gift off today. Don't want to spoil the surprise.
Meagan was very intrigued by the idea that a total stranger would send you a FREE present. I had to remind her that it isn't really free because you make and send something too. But I tend to agree with her. How cool, presents in the mail! How often do you actually get something good in the mail? For me, rarely, bills, yuk. So I'm super psyched to get my gift out and see what comes in the mail.
Here is a little sneak peak....


If you know me, you know how out of my league I am when it comes to wrapping presents and presentation. Hopefully, my gifts rarely suck, but you may sometimes get them in a grocery bag or nothing at all. I found this wrapping today and just had to get it because it totally matches my present. Hehe, fun. I think I see why people put so much effort into their presentation. I'll show you what I made after I confirm that she got it in the mail. Maybe a tutorial? We'll see.
