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).
I love love love the ornament creations from this year!! This might be our best year yet!
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!
And there were lots of random shots and selfies too 😉
We even had garland of marshmallows made by my kiddos from #funfriday last night!!
Mom, thank you for all of your help today and for hosting this with me – I love that we do this together!
Linda Ellis – thank you for coordinating the Tennessee crowd!
Joy and Chloe – thanks for helping to clean our messy house and the dreaded play room 😉
