Show and Tell - Christmas Ornament Exchange



Earlier this holiday season, I had the idea to do an Ornament and Dreidel Exchange. We had 16 participants, which I felt was a very healthy number for our first year! I was very pleased and I hope to make this an annual event.

My name was given to Mattie at Creative Joy and I recently received my beautiful ornament from her.


Isn't it lovely?!


Please forgive me for the poor quality of my photos the past couple of weeks. My camera is currently being repaired, but I should hopefully have it back next week. So, for good measure, here is another photo of the ornament when it made its way onto our tree.


The light washes it out some, but it really is gorgeous!


In a separate but related note, after suffering her own loss earlier this year, Mattie blogged today that her cousin would be burying her own 3 month old daughter tomorrow. The baby was the same age Mattie's little Shyla would have been. Please go over and offer her your condolences and let her know we're all with her in spirit during this most difficult time for the family.

Your ornament is gorgeous! And I love the 'faith' and all that it represents for the ALI community---how neat!

Heading to Mattie's blog now...

Mattie said...

Thank you so much for your kind words and thoughts.

On another note, sorry your ornament was late, I promise I didn't just flake out on you. I had the date for this exchange and another one I was doing confused! When I went back to get your address from my email I saw what I had done and felt so bad. Again, I'm sorry this was late, but I am glad you like it.
