2013 Ornament Exchange & Tutorials!

This Snowy Owl by Jen of Grainline Studio is a hoot!

I had a lot of fun participating in the ornament exchange that Kelli of True Bias held this year.  It was so much fun to unwrap all the wonderfully creative and unique ornaments I received in my mailbox each day. It was like Christmas every time I went to the post office!!

I already shared with you guys the cute crochet Christmas tree ornaments I sent out. As promised, here are all the beautiful handmade ornaments I received. Follow the links for complete tutorials!  

Katy of Katy and Laney made these adorable and "distinctly mammalian" ornaments. I love her humorous story about the process of creating these. I've always wondered how difficult it would be to make creative poms like this.


Miranda of One Little Minute made the sweetest Sugar Plum Fairies in honor of her newest family member... her sweet baby girl, Plum.


Krista of Lazy Saturdays made these cozy plush houses with a free pattern included so you can make your own!


Laney of Katy and Laney made this cute thimble hot air balloon.  Up, up and away!!


Sonja of Ginger Makes made these jingle bell wreaths, and I definitely turned some heads when I walked out of the post office with this jingling package!


Kelli of True Bias made these heartstrings state ornaments.


Jennifer of Workroom Social made these fabulous fabric tree ornaments.

It was so fun checking my mailbox over the past week. I've loved receiving each and every one of these special handmade ornaments. This was my first time participating in a blogger exchange and I had a blast.

So, have you guys been doing any holiday crafting?  Feel free to link up your projects below, I'd love to see what you've been making this holiday season!
