#shareitsaturday / a Meaningful Christmas Advent Ornament Exchange

Today’s #shareitsaturday is from our annual Meaningful Christmas Ornament Exchange!!

This has become one of my favorite days to gather with friends and see all of our beautiful handmade creations.

3 years ago, a friend invited me and my mom to participate in her exchange and we were HOOKED!

Since then, we’ve hosted our own very ornament exchange and it is SUCH a hit!

There are a total of 24 ornaments that go along with this devotional book:

The short family devotionals start on Dec 1 and go through Christmas Eve. Each night you add an ornament that goes with the devotional to your tree.

Here is our big group of friends (7 friends are from Tennessee and they mailed their ornaments in).

And all the beautiful faces of the friends that made them. I absolutely love going around the room and hearing about the making of the ornaments – the crazy ideas that didn’t work, the mishaps, the totally different than I had planned ones..haha!
