Spring Handmade Gift Exchange

This week my friends and I got together and had another fanatic Handmade Gift Exchange. You may remember when I blogged about our exchange during the Holidays. This time it was all about Spring gifts. I was overwhelmed with happiness to see all the creative crafts my friends came up with. Here is a little tour of my loot! 
My friend Ashlynne made some adorable spool magnets. Check out this tutorial to make some magnets of your own! 

My cute friend Lisa hand painted a watercolor quote for each of us. Love it! 

You can’t go wrong with a succulent! I love them. My friend Erin planted us each our own in these cute bowls

Katie made us each a honey body scrub and filled a notebook with her favorite quotes. 

Kim created a really cute paper spring banner. 

Trisha made custom fabric bunting banners for each of us!  

Shyla created a fun anchor using her silhouette machine and washi tape similar to this method

Kathleen made us each our own bath soaks using essential oils. 

Camilla made each of us our own Moss Monogram Door Sign. You can get instructions on making your own here
So here is how the handmade exchange works:
There are 10 of us in the group so we each make 10 of the same gift. Then we get together and exchange so we go home with 10 different gifts! The exchange is a blast. We each talk about what we made, how we made it and why we made it and then pass it around. There is always good food and lots of laughter!
I’ll be posting what I brought to the exchange next week so stay tuned!
