A Shoebox Birthday

I am currently at a crafting retreat with 11 of my friends. Though I'm preparing this blog post in advance of the retreat, I'm sure we are creating, laughing, eating way too much, and sleeping too little. And none of us would change any of that.

My friend Barb is the host of this event and she truly spoils us. She also has fun activities that we all have the option of participating in. The White Elephant gift exchange was a HUGE hit last year and I'm sure this year's is, too. 

All 12 of us signed up to participate in the Shoebox Swap. I hope the others have fun making the card I designed and created kits for. 

Here it is:
