Handmade Joy Exchange

I recently participated in the 3rd annual Handmade Joy Exchange,
created and hosted by my blogging friend Anne Butera of My Giant Strawberry.
7 bloggers from different states, plus one from England, participated.

I received the name of Laurie Lewis at Hedgerow Rose blog,
and I made this beaded fabric picture for her.

…and sent it along with a card I had made last year.

I received this beautifully wrapped package

an amazingly talented photographer 
and creator of beautiful handcrafted things.

Even the envelope was lovely!

The package contained these lovely postcards I cannot wait to send (after I have 
enjoyed them for a while!) ...

each one is a treasure...

and this is a beautiful Polaroid print which I have displayed
on my dresser.

And here is a tiny shadow box of whimsically named precious stones...

with a hanger on the back! I love tiny things!

Such an embarrassment of riches!!!
Cori, you are too kind and I love each and every gift!

Anne, thank you once again for facilitating this lovely exchange!

Hope everyone is having a very good day!
