every year right before the holidays, i get together with long-time friends for an ornament exchange. in years past, we would get together in the evening during the week, but this year we changed it up and had Sunday brunch with mimosas and bloody marys...yummm. as usual the food was delicious and it was great to see everyone!
and of course, everyone brought awesome ornaments.. we exchange dirty santa style and everyone secretly wants to be the person who brings the ornament(s) that get 'stolen' the most. the ones i took home were awesome [didn't get a photo before packing them away] but here is a picture of the ones i brought- modeled by my good friend Steph @ iowaharleygirl [and yes, she rides her own Harley...isn't that awesome!?]
for the last couple of years i have been making ornaments for this exchange and this year i went with a matching set. the ball is from Pip's crocheted christmas baubles and the hex is an African Flower on one side and a hex pattern I found at Attic24 in the same color scheme on the other.
i look forward to getting together with this crazy bunch every year and 2010 was no disappointment! no matter how long it's been since we've all seen each other, it seems like we just pick right up where we left off at our last get-together. do you have friends like that ?
