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.
