Gift Exchanging - and WhoopdWhoop

I participated in the Handmade Gift Exchange over at Craftaholics Anonymous - so fun to get to know another crafter a little better, and get a sweet surprise.  My partner was Shannon and look at the amazing hat she made me - I LOVE it!!  Can't wait til fall - I have a feeling I will be wearing it alot!!

If you want to join in the fun, there will be another gift exchange in Novemember, so look forward to that.

If you want fun now, consider WhoopdWhoop - - it's kind of like an exchange - you offer something handmade, some gets it, you get points (whoops) and you use those points to pick out something for yourself.

TRUE CONFESSION - I browse it often, and I pick something out just so I can get a package in the mail -

 - and guess what - everything I've gotten is even cuter in person.  I might be addicted.  I love grabbing things that are "1 whoop" - what a deal!  Or if the girls are standing around, I'll let them pick something out.  Guilt-free shopping!  I tend to buy things that I don't make much of myself - mainly jewelry and crocheted stuff.  Want to know what I've gotten so far??

I think you might get 1 whoop just for signing up (I'm not for sure on that) - and then you get partial whoops for rating your purchases, referring friends, etc.  So, have fun - whoopdwhoop.

Enjoy the weekend!
