So about a month ago, I signed up to be a participant of a gift exchange on one of the blogs that I follow http://www.craftaholicsanonymous.net/handmade-gift-exchange-june-2012. It is where you are paired up with someone anonymously, find out what they like, make a gift, and send it to them in the mail. You also receive a gift from another person. There is the opportunity to meet other crafters as well. It is almost like a pen pal, but instead a craft pal! I think it is the coolest thing ever. For this exchange, all gifts are mailed by the end of June.
Here is what I made for the person I was paired with. It is a monogrammed paper bag scrapbook that she can use for her quilting and also a monogrammed coaster. I hope she will enjoy it!
I have not received my anonymous gift yet. I am on pins and needles waiting everyday for the mail to be delivered. I will keep you posted on what I receive. If you are interested in participating in the next gift exchange, you can follow the link above. These exchanges are done twice a year and the next one will be in November I believe.
And as always, Happy Crafting.
