Handmade Gift Exchange
Recently, I participated in the Handmade Gift Exchange at Craftaholics Anonymous. I was so excited to do this! I love to make things for other people. I was originally going to make just one item, but I couldn’t settle on just one thing to make, so I made three!
I made a decorated composition notebook that can be used as an idea book or a journal. A pair of handmade glass bead earrings and an upcycled pillowcase apron. I think the apron I am most excited about because that has been on my list of unfinished/unstarted projects to get done
! I am so happy with the way all the gifts turned out and I hope Donna enjoys them all!
Here are a few more pictures so you can see some of the details of each present.
