This month, I participated in the Merry Mail Ornament Exchange over at Chasing Happy. What is that, you may ask? Well, I was put into a group with three other lovely ladies, and we handmade ornaments for each other! It was so much fun to bundle up packages for my new blog-friends and send them overseas. It was even more fun to receive parcels in the mail!
Now for some show and tell!
The lovely Molly from Sundrops and Rainflowers saw that I love books and that Alice in Wonderland is my partner in crime. Do you know what she did? She went out, found an old copy of Wonderland, and decoupaged me this gorgeous bauble! It looks fantastic nestled in our tree, and is so much more special because I know that the book pages were chosen just for me! I love it.
Crafty Christine from Fit Hippie Chick discerned my love for Harry Potter somehow (you know I don’t even know how she did it! Maybe she has some wizarding powers of her own!), and created this gorgeous snitch bauble. I love it’s sparkly wings! I’m so excited to have such personalised ornaments on my tree.
Last but not least, was Miss Abby, from Little City Adventure. She sent me this elegant, bead filled ornament. Isn’t is festive, with it’s Christmas colours and glamourous pearl beads? And doesn’t she take gorgeous photos?! I don’t even know how she does that.
This exchange was so much fun, and a great way to get into the festive spirit. Plus, emailing back and forth with these lovely ladies and getting to know more about them and their blogs was great. I’m already looking forward to next year!
Oh – and if you want to see what I sent the girls, then head over to their websites and see the photos they’ve taken of them in their trees!
