Did y’all see the awesome gifts I received from my package pal Andi? If you didn’t be sure to check out that post. I’ll link it up at the bottom for you. But first let me show y’all what I made for her.
Now, if you browse thru Andi’s blog Crazy Daze Designs you’ll notice that she likes organization. Now, I’m really bad at it, no matter how hard I try. I’m a list kinda girl. I make lists for my lists!! With that being said I decided to make her a couple dry erase frames and a cork board.
Andi loves to sew and so I made her this cute lil sewing kit. I found this in her pinterest boards.
I followed the tutorial from Frugalicious Me. I filled my jar up a little more than the original. I didn’t notice before that the jar from Frugalicious or the original from Anthro only had a few items in it. I actually tried to send my with just a few things but I bought all this stuff for Andi and so….full it was!!
I also added a few extra lil gifties. Some matching note cards and note pad. A reed diffuser, I love those things! The extra dry erase pens and some tacks for the cork board.
I got her this cross, too.
Now, y’all know I am a jewelry crafter. OK, side-note: can we come up with a cooler name for that!? I mean if a baby sitter can be called a child care technician, isn’t there something better than jewelry crafter or maker! Any thoughts?? OK, sorry for my rambling! SO….I had to make her some jewelry!! In her favorite colors of course.
I’ve been having fun learning how to create cluster charms. If you follow me on Instagram (alililly73) than you may have seen the one I made for Kayli as a lil surprise bday gift.
I made her a bracelet too!
I painted this cute lil heart shaped jewelry box with Alie’s watercolors. Then, I added a lil sparkly A for Andi.
And now for the AWESOMEST of the gifts I sent.
Alice wanted to make something for Andi and send it to her. So she made a painted butterfly magnet.
And the next day after the paint dried she added some fancy glitter and sparklies.
So sweet isn’t it? I love my precious girl.
After Andi got her gifties she sent me these pics. I LOVE them, so I had to share them with y’all.
So, tell me….have you ever joined a gift exchange? What did you get? Make? I have to admit I’ve been stiffed twice!! Sad right? My hubs even told me this last time “well, babe stop doing them” But they are so much fun when they work out right? The adorable jean skirt aprons that Alie and I got and Andi’s awesome gifts this time definitely make up for the bad ones. My very first exchange ever was with Jenni of Ragamuffin Beauties. I got lots of awesome fall goodies (it was an I love Fall gift exchange) she made me an awesome scarf too. Alice still to this day dances around the living room wearing it.
These are the awesome gifts that Andi made me! Aren’t they great!! She really put a smile on my face with all these goodies!
