Homemade Gift Exchange

 This year I decided to participate in Craftaholics Anonymous gift exchange.
For those who don't know, I signed up and by randomness I receive a partner to make a gift for and send it to them.
Really FUN!

I was kinda at a loss of what to make for my partner.
I am much better at making things for people I know.
I like to make things I know they will love and appericate!
Luckily for me I have two awesome friends who just taught me how to crochet.
I am sure they wanted to tear their hair out while teaching me though.
We also had a few laughs at the way I was holding my yarn!
But in the end I learned how to do it.
 Then it dawned on me!
What girl doesn't love something pretty to put in their hair?
So I made my partner a couple of these cute and simple hairbands.
Adds a little something to any outfit.  
I think so anyway!
This wasn't the actual one I made for her.
I of course made a few for myself!

I just wanted to let you know that I've set my Soda Parlor to private for awhile. I've had issues with another blogger. I don't intend to keep it private for a long while, but I just wanted to let you know. Hope all is well with you and your family! And that you're having a wonderful Holiday Season thus far!

Jacque :)

P.S. If you would like to still follow my blog and keep up-to-date on what's going, please email me at preciousmoments84@gmail.com. I would love to add you to my private listing!
