Kris Kringle Wrap Up

A big, big thank you to everyone who participated in this years Handmade Kris Kringle.  All gifts should now be well and truly on there way.
It's been a huge success and I've loved receiving all your emails and comments about the wonderful gifts you made and received.  It seems everyone involved had lots of fun.

Even though I would call myself fairly tech savvy, I decided that the best way to organise the gift partners was with a good old fashioned hard copy! So here it is - it does get anymore basic than that. 
My husband has even jumped on board offering to devise an easier system for matching names next year.

I wanted to close this years Kris Kringle with some more images and blog links showing how much work went into the gifts.  
The Haby Goddess Handmade Kris Kringle will definitely be on again next year so if you didn't register this time round, I would love to have you on board in 2012.

Thanks so much for organising this Jodie. It was lovely to receive a gift. I have been busy making items for customers lately and sending lots out it made my day:)

I had a great time - thanks for hosting it! I wonder if it is possible to know whether my partner received her gift?

There are some gorgeous gifts made there. I wish I registered for this year but time restrictions didn't allow.
I'll definitely be more prepared for next year! Looking forward to it.
