Gift Exchange

At the end of November I signed up to participate in a handmade gift exchange at Craftaholics Anonymous. Here is the gift that I received

It is two wooden blocks that have been painted black and the edges look to have been distressed. The word love is decoupaged on. It is simple and elegant all at the same time (just like me).

I love this (no pun intended). I actually had a bare spot on my table that I could not find the right decoration to put there. As soon as I got this in I knew that this would be the perfect fit. It was also a perfect statement for this time of year and a reminder for the rest of the year. Our Savior came to this earth because he loved us. He died on the cross because he loved us. We should always strive to have that Christ like love for all mankind.

Thank you Amy for the wonderful gift.


  1. LOVE it! Thanks for sharing that lovely thought. What a great reminder those blocks will be. And that's so cool you had the perfect place for them! Thanks for linking up and letting us check out your goodies:) and yes, the time zone is off on my mclinky. Thanks for letting me know!
    Happy Holidays!

  2. You're right they are simple and elegant - and nice because you could probably use them year round!

  3. I LOVE them...thanks for sharing with all of us...I'm looking forward to the exchange this summer.
