Handmade gift exchange

I volunteered to be a part of a handmade gift exchange that this awesome blog is doing. I thought it would be fun to make a handmade gift for somebody I have never met before. It's been a great experience and my gift exchange partner seems so sweet. She should be getting my gift in the mail today or Monday so I really really hope she doesn't check my blog yet. I was actually done with her gift a few weeks ago and have been dying to post it.

My handmade gift is a pottery barn inspired piece and when I saw this idea on Pottery Barn's website I knew it would be perfect for Nicole because she and her husband work at a coffee shop and I thought it would be appropriate to make these for them. Not only that but her living room colors are green, purple and orange and that is why I chose the green. :) I really hope she likes it. I had a good time making this and the coasters to go along with it!! If you are reading this Nicole, thanks for being such a great gift exchange partner!! I will definitely be doing this again!

Wow, I have been absent from the blogging world for a while but I could not wait to check out your site! It is looking so good :) I have been enjoying going through all of your ideas today. Those mugs are so cute and such a simple but neat gift idea!
