the creative exchange link up!



This year is already flying by...I can't believe it's April already. But let me tell you, I am ready for the sun to come OUT and stay for a while. I have major plans for "when the sun is out again," most of which include some major creative projects that I've got up my sleeve. So what better way to celebrate the sun and its return...and my finally being able to release my inner creative bug....than with The Creative Exchange Link Up!  Kelly, Michaela, and I are so excited to have you all share what sort of crafty goodies you've come up with for your swap partner.  So be sure and link up below!

This round, I was paired up with a super crafty lady, and I've got to admit that trying to come up with a suitable "creation" for her was so tough for me. I spent some good long chunks of time oogling her Pinterest Boards, and scouring over her blog. I was stumped. But then...I remembered that we could totally gift some crafting supplies for this super fun swap. I immediately thought FELT!!

You see, my swap partner, Miss Joann of Creative Mess, has a whole entire Pinterest board dedicated to felt projects. If you like to craft, I HIGHLY recommend that you go and follow all of her Pinterest boards now. =)


I figured I'd give her a little stockpile of felt and necessaries to maybe finish off some off those sweet little projects.


I was loving all of the bright colors...the variegated thread...the magnetic needle case...

And I can never resist a little raffia.


I do hope that Joanne enjoys her new stash!!

So, now it's your turn Ladies!! Link up your posts and show us what you've been creating!
