Long time readers will know that I did this in November, but Craftaholics Anonymoushosts a summer one as well. Ever since November, I have been anxiously awaiting this gift exchange. I had so much fun in November, and couldn’t wait to do it again. This time around it is a little different, it is being organized through Elfster. The biggest change is that the person you make a gift for is NOT the person that is making you a gift.
So my draw was a newly married girl from the Midwest. In fact, she had only been married for 20 days where I first got her name for the exchange.
My idea for her gift was not original. It actually was a variation of the gift I received in November. I love the B that Caty made for me. So that was really my inspiration.
Now I have made a deal with myself, that for these gift exchanges, I must try something new.
Crafters, you are not going to believe this, but I had never used Mod Podge before. Now that I have bought it, I am finding out all the crazy ways to use Mod Podge and I realize I should have gotten the bigger bottle.
Here is the gift I made. I can remember how excited I was about my new last name and knew this gift would be appreciated by a newlywed.
I am still awaiting my gift. Great things come to those who wait!
