Joy! Gift Exchange

I decided to give the Homemade Gift Exchange a try this year. When I was a kid I always wanted a pen pal, I thought this was as close as I was gonna get. My gift came from a sweet girl from Kentucky. It came in the mail a few days ago, of course I opened it right away!
April made this adorable ornament. Inside are strips of paper that have a favorite quote of mine which is on my blog. Such a thoughtful gift!
It was really hard to decide what to make for April. I finally decided on a new technique I just learned.
 Joy! That what the season is all about right? I think I need to make one of these for me as well! I had alot of fun making this, I hope she really en JOY's it!
So hop on over to Craftaholics Anonymous
Check out what everyone else gave and received!

Great technique on the JOY letters and of course we all love to receive a little something in the mail.... especially when it is from a swap partner.

I'd love it if you could link this project up with my Simply Christmas Inspiration party at
