Adorable Christmas Owl

If you remember back here, Craftaholics Anonymous Hosted a Craft Gift Exchange.  Through out the United States, we all signed up, and at the end of the sign up process the system drew names for us.  I drew Amanda from McKinney, Texas.  We exchanged gifts and I received my gifts today!

I absolutely love my gifts!! They are adorable!!  And so unique! I have never seen a Christmas Owl!! 

Countdown to Christmas.....

A Christmas Owl....He is a bean bag and stands up perfectly!

Handpainted Owl Plaque to hang......

Amanda is so talented!!  She can paint and sew with such details.  I love each one of my gifts!

Amanda: Thank you so much for the wonderful gifts.   I was able to receive a gift from a wonderful crafter! Hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas!! <3 Love, Nonny

And the gift I sent Amanda.......

I just recently posted the  "Joy Wreath".  
 For Amanda, I customized a "Joy Wreath" to her Christmas decor. This is how it turned out:

I cannot wait to do the next gift exchange! Thanks Craftaholics Anonymous for hosting such a great exchange!!
