Creative Exchange

I recently signed up to participate in 

And I was partnered with Kendra from A Proverbs 31 Wife.   
She's #3 on the linkup - be sure to check out her post and see the amazing gift she made me!  I LOVE it!  

Anyway, I love crafty swaps, but somehow I struggled with this one.  Kendra doesn't wear jewelry, which is mostly what I make, and this exchange happened to fall right in the middle of my husband's month-long business trip overseas and I just felt kinda swamped.  Anyway, Kendra did mention that she liked to scrapbook, so I found this little album and pack of paper to send her.

I also really wanted to make her a wreath to hang in her house, since she said she liked decor - but I just couldn't find the time to get to the craft store.  So, I made my frame out of an old (clean) pizza box and decorated it with some gorgeous satin ribbons I found in my craft box.  It's not exactly front-door-worthy, but it might look nice on an interior wall.  

Anyway, it didn't turn out quite like I imagined (I'm terrible at making bows, apparently), but she claims she liked her package, so I guess I got the job done. (also, I apologize for the crummy pictures - my camera is getting old and doesn't like taking pictures at night *sigh*)

Now go check out all the other amazing crafts that have linked up!

  1. You really did well Cat, I actually wear bracelets at times but we won't tell that ok? ;) I think our link up was interesting because of how different we are. The purses you pinned were nothing like what I would choose and I actually don't even like the color orange but it seems you do so I rolled with it and you love it. You didn't even know what do do for me because of obvious lifestyle differences and yet you nailed it as well. I think perhaps that was the whole point of this link up. :)


I love feedback. Feel free to leave comments, ask questions or tell me a story. I'll try to respond to you in a timely manner.
