Merry Mail Ornament Exchange Link-Up!

When I saw that Kenzie of Chasing Happy and Amber of And Yes to Joy were hosting a DIY ornament exchange, I was so excited! What a fun way to meet new bloggers and get some holiday crafting done! It was a great experience, and I'm so happy I got to spread (and receive!) some holiday cheer.

Not to mention, I got to come for winter break to this fun little guy! The very sweet Amy of Club Narwhal noted that I liked animals with little santa hats on them, and totally ran with it :). How cute is he?! He looks great on my tree.

I was so happy to have been paired with Amy: she loves to bake, travel, write, and design. Soul sisters! I embraced the travel idea, and made her this Mod Podge globe ornament:

I also got the chance to meet Jenny of Growing Up Jacobson, and her super cute kids! She told us a great story about a nutcracker she loved as a child, so I decided to make her this nutcracker-based scrapbook paper ornament.

If you'd like to know how I made these little guys, tutorials are coming tomorrow! In the meantime, thanks again to Kenzie and Amber for hosting this fun exchange, and thanks to Amy and Jenny - it has been awesome participating in this with you!
