Hi! I'm Linda, the craft addict behind Craftaholics Anonymous®, a craft blog. Crafting is cheaper than therapy, right? When I'm not DIYing something, I can be found taxiing around our 4 crazy kids or working out. Or shoe shopping... because you can never have too many shoes! Happy crafting! ♥

    Linda, after your last reminder I contacted my partner to let her know I had sent the gift, but have heard nothing. It's no prob though, the gift is in the post anyway. But just to keep you updated, I def did email to say it was sent xx

    Such a great idea Linda! I have sent my gift & I hope that Maria posts some photos as mine are a bit fuzzy ( camera is on it's last legs). I really enjoyed making the gift & have posted the photos on the flickr group.

    I love the gift exchange, but I didn't like being paired up. My partner asked me very directly what I "wanted," and I thought it would be fun to just get a random gift. Plus, she is much more advanced at her craft than I am, so I then felt bad about giving her something that wasn't as good – or specific – as she gave me. It just ended up being awkward.

    Oh Wow….
    Of course I love this activities!!
    And of course i will join again.

    It make me so excited to prepare the gift, and enjoy on viewing others gift.

    So far the way you make this exchange quite ok i think. And i have no any comment at the moment, but once i got an idea, will update to you. =)

    I sent a gift to my partner but I haven't heard anything back from her. No biggie, I know it's a stressful time! Thanks for setting this up Linda…it's a great idea!
