My gifts for my secret elf

 I finished these a while ago but didn't want to post them until my crafty pen pal received them, but here they are!

  This was my first exchange so I wasn't sure what to do, what to make, what would make my crafty pal happy?

   I sent her a little of what makes me happy and right now I'm crazy about Mason jars. They are all I use for travel mugs anymore so I made her some cute little cozies and bought a pack of lids to go with them.

Then because it was a July 1st exchange I thought this little wooden flag was cute.
And then must be an owl, and this little one makes me happy!

I hope my pal liked receiving these as much as I liked making them. Can't wait for the next exchange!

Loving a summertime gift exchange!

All my wonderful goodies!
  I recently signed up to do a handmade gift exchange with Craftaholics Anonymous and I got paired with the best partner ever!

  Her name is Amanda and she has a cute Etsy shop called Joyful Home Designs, and you should definitely check it out!

  This is the first exchange I've participate in and I was a little apprehensive at first. Then Amanda and I started talking about what we do and what we like and I found that we were so much alike! I was really excited to make somethings for her, but that's for another post! Her gifts just went in the mail and I don't want to spoil the surprise.

   I do want to share the wonderful gifts I recieved! I wish I had taken pictures before I opened everything, it was all wrapped so cute and tied up with twine!

  I would love to tell you what my favorite thing is but I love it all! The camping bag was such a great idea and it will get plenty of use.

   Just look at my wonderful surprises and then go check out Amanda's shop!

Sweet little hoop with my favorite thing!

Love the washi tape and twine!

This bag--to die for, I can't wait to go camping!
