Remember last year's ornament exchange? I was a little bummed when I got some very unattractive ornaments (all from people I didn't know). So this year my sister-in-law Carrie and I decided to do our own ornament exchange and invite our own crafty friends. I am loving getting cute little packages in the mail every day! When I get them all I'll show you a photo. Every single one of them is WAY better than the best one I got last year. Thanks girls.

Here's what I made:

After looking for tutorials online, and finding a few different ones that weren't quite was I was looking for, I kind of modified this one. I was trying to make them look similar to these little guys. Maybe I'll do my own tutorial one of these days.

p.s. If you weren't invited to be part of the exchange, it wasn't because you aren't crafty, it was because it was limited to 12 people. After we started I thought of another 12 or more people I could have invited to be a part of it.

I started to cringe when I saw the title of your post...mice! Yuck! ;)
But these are so cute, I'm sure you can't get much worse than the ornaments you got last year, I'm seriously laughing just thinking about it.

Love them in the circle. I should make and mail these to my sister in law, she HATES mice.

Ok, I want the instructions for your ornament exchange! (All the rules and stuff!) (And your mice are darling!) Maybe we can do it in MS.

What a great idea! Love it. (Sorry about last years ornament ~eek. wow. Hope you put it out of its misery.)
