Holiday Handmade Sekret Exchange!
I signed up for Audrey’s handmade exchange with some misgivings – not because I didn’t think I would get a wonderful gift, but because between Caroline’s party and Christmas I wasn’t sure I’d be able to make anything even REMOTELY worth sending to another crafty person. I managed to get something in the mail (although I STILL haven’t sent my recipient my guest post) but the really pleasant surprise was a beautiful pouch and delicious macaroons from MY secrket gifter. Check out her guest post below!
Hello! I am Kelley. My blog is Casa Crafty where I write about my many crafting experiments, my family and day to day life.
I did have fun! Although, it is difficult to make something for a stranger, so I searched and read and combed through this here blog to get as much insight into Suzanne as I could.
particularly new thing for me to do, I sell bags and laminate in my etsy shop . But, I
thought it might be of more use to her. So to make it a little
more interesting I did this cross stitch “s” on a wooden
pendant. I glued some stamped leather on the back (which I am
not so proud of, so it isn’t pictured…) and put it on a key fob.I didn’t take too many pictures of this process because there are so
many great tutorials out there.ie:
Comforts, a favorite blog, and decided to do it…They didn’t arrive as prettily as they left here, but what can you
do? At least they were still edible and yummy.They are time consuming, but not difficult.
They are very intense.
Thank you to Audrey for putting this all together!
