Inspiration Board : Not Quite Secret Santa - Not Quite Secret Valentine
Posted by Marcie McGoldrick
A group of us usually get together in early December for a gift exchange "secret santa" We each draw a name and make a gift for that person. This year we didn't get it together before Christmas and a new tradition was born - from now on we will have Secret Valentine instead of Secret Santa. I love seeing what everyone makes for each other and the wrapping is fun too. Do you have a favorite gift exchange tradition?
5 Jodi's gift to Silke
1 Shane made this beautiful cameo necklace for Blake. The cameos are made from Sculpey.
