Handmade Gift Exchange {What I Received}

A few weeks ago, I shared the Monogram Christmas Wreath I made for my "buddy" in a Craft Exchange that I participated in. Today, I'm excited to share with you what I received!

I was linked up with Ashley, and her gift certainly did not disappoint! (You can follow her on Pinterest here.)

She created this beautiful NOEL banner out of paper. I had requested something for a "colorful Christmas", and this certainly fit the bill. 

Isn't it simply gorgeous? I love her attention to detail and how the colors coordinate so perfectly. :)

I draped it over this mirror in our living room. The colors blend nicely and it's a wonderful addition to our Christmas decor!

She also handcrafted this fun Advent Calendar. I've never seen one like it! Aidan is smitten and loves to watch as Santa "slides down the chimney" everyday.

Each day you pull a tab to reveal how many days are left until Christmas. As the tab is pulled, Santa slides down into the next slot. Pure crafty genius!

I really loved participating in this Craft Excahnge and can't wait to do it again this Spring! Thank you, Ashley, for my beautiful gifts. :)

Have you ever participated in a Craft Exchange? Interested in signing up for one? Linda hosts one twice a year. Be sure to sign up for her next one!
