Gift Exchange Meet up!

Karen {left} and Debbie {right} were paired up in the Handmade Gift Exchange and they lived close enough, they were able to meet up so Debbie could hand delivered her gift! Isn’t that so cool? I thought it was great! The draw is random, so its crazy they were paired up when they lived so close to each other!

***For those who have not received something from their Gifter, please wait until July 20 and if you still have not received a gift, please shoot me an email with your tracking number. thank you!!

happy crafting,


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! ♥
