CRAFTAHOLICS ANONYMOUS HANDMADE CRAFT EXCHANGE ENTRY HOLIDAY CRAFT - 2013

I love the Craft Exchange at Craftaholics Anonymous! I'm never disappointed with the results. Linda puts together one fab exchange. My hat goes off to her and all of her hard work making it happen.

This year, as I said in my previous post, I was paired up with a teenage girl from South Africa. We swapped a few emails back and forth and she filled me in on a bit of her and her life. The word "Hipster" stood out for me. Then I felt old. I didn't really know what that meant. The only thing that I could safely say that I could associate with the word was Instagram. She mentioned that she loved reading in her spare time.

So HIPSTER + READER = INSTAGRAM BOOKMARK

I love the friendship bracelet using the Instagram colours :-) makes me happy. The "Find Joy in The Ordinary" quote is one of my favorites. I wanted to find a way to get it in there too. I think the Polaroid picture quote goes well with the camera.







This week, I received her gift to me.

The detail in the mosaic is so great. I cannot believe that it arrived safe and sound from South Africa like this!! You can't really tell from the picture but the clear parts are mirrors. She has done such a fantastic job and I could not be more pleased with the gift I received.

Once again, super pleased with the whole experience with the Craft Exchange and really looking forward to the summer exchange next year.

  1. This post made my heart happy. Its so awesome that crafting can span age and location. I think both of the gifts are just beautiful. :) Being a self proclaimed hipster I think your gift was super cute. I am so glad that I participated in the gift exchange, especially so I could see everyone's cute stuff.
