Gift Exchange: retrohipmama

Thanks to Linda over at CraftaholicsAnonymous, I have made a crafty new friend and fellow blogger!

My partner was Andrea, who blogs over at retrohipmama. She’s also got a Facebook Fanpage too. She’s amazingly talented and crafty!

Embroidery is an old trade that is quickly becoming popular again. Andrea is doing her part in making Embroidery cool. Seriously, go check out her blog and you will see what I’m talking about! If you’re on Pinterest, you can follow her here. I promise, she will not disappoint.
