Bee Ornament Exchange 2011 – Part 1

The yearly bee ornament exchange is one of my favorite parts of being a bee, and it’s hard to believe that this is already our FOURTH annual bee ornament exchange! Each year, the blogger bees all get together and participate in a secret Santa ornament exchange. With a $15 budget, each bee is challenged to come up with an ornament (handmade or store bought) that represents the bee’s moniker that they’ve drawn! This year over 100 bees participated! WHEW! Check out the adorable ornaments the bees came up with:
