Handemade Gift Exchange Summer 2013 {What I Made}

Last Fall I participated in my first EVER handmade gift exchange. And I LOVED it! It was so much fun to be paired up with someone, get to know them and then create something special, especially for them. You can see what I made last year here.

This time around I was paired up with a lovely woman named Tana. She has an amazing gift for doodling, and I am so excited to show you what she made for me! But, you'll have to wait until tomorrow... ;)

But, today, I will be showing you what I created for her. I have an Etsy Shop, 8th Street Bridge, where I create custom yarn wreaths, letters, monogram wreaths and much more. After Tana told me that she loved dark green and vibrant colors, I knew just what to make for her. :)


It was my first time making a yarn "B" and it turned out beautifully! This dark green yarn is simply lovely in person. Trust me. :)


I topped her yarn letter off with a dark grey mum made of wool felt and accented it with fun leaves made of bright yellow fabric.


This would be a beautiful addition to any home for Fall. But, since Tana loves these colors year round, I knew it would be perfect for her! :)
 
Stop on by tomorrow to see what I received from Tana. You won't want to miss it!

Happy Fourth of July

 
We're headed up to Dallas to spend the weekend with friends. It'll be a wonderful time filled with swimming, giggles, sunshine and smoked meat (Hey- we're Texans, it's what we do!). :)
 
Enjoy your holiday... and remember, freedom is never free. I'm proud to say that my grandfather fought for our freedom in World War II and my uncle served our country in Vietnam and the Gulf War. Be thankful that we are able to celebrate a day such as this.
 
Happy Fourth of July, friends!
