It’s an Ornament Exchange

Arkansas Women Bloggers sponsored a Handmade Ornament Swap Secret Santa Style for December and it has been fun!

Two weeks ago, I received a USPS Priority Mail Box from Debbie Arnold and I couldn’t wait to open the box. To report that I was excited is an understatement. Ya’ll, in that box was a handmade ornament from “The Debbie Arnold” of Dining with Debbie! As one of the 10 Northwest Arkansas Food Blogs You Should be Reading in 2012, Dining with Debbie is kinda a big deal.

Look at this festive, snow-flocked, star cookie cutter ornament perfectly outlined in sweet pearls. (I think she knows how to use a glue gun and she uses it well!)

Not only will you find some fine recipes with photos to plan any dish on Debbie’s blog,, Arkansas Women Bloggers is featuring Debbie as Miss December.  She’s also hosting Merry Merry Munchies 2012 Rafflecopter Giveway you need to enter. (You know I love a giveaway!) Debbie’s blog gives me hope and inspiration to be a better cook (person)!

This darling “not so” cookie cutter ornament is the perfect star for the top of my little kitchen Christmas tree!

In exchange for receiving an ornament in the Arkansas Women Bloggers Ornament Swap I agreed to craft a handmade ornament for M. at Glitter and Rainbows.

On Glitter and Rainbows, M. shares her struggles with infertility and how she contends with it. Her blog is more than infertility. M. is amazing.

I made her an angel salt dough ornament and stamped blogger on it because I think she’s a Christmas Angel Blogger. You can find Glitter and Rainbows here.

Go see the other ornaments the Arkansas Women Bloggers received and made.
