Easter swapping...

...with Hope. She is such a great partner and very creative, as you can see. She made this hanging sugared Easter is so very beautiful!!
I really like the cutout with the old paper and small blue egg. The pom

pom frame is pretty as well.

A view from above, with a vintage flower and rhinestone. I will be

leaving this pretty piece out all year to enjoy!

She also made me some pretty paper eggs.

And this great pair of earrings, in my favorite color.

I made this hanging sachet with the cutest bunny on the front.

I really love the effect of gathered velvet across the bottom.

Of course, I added some vintage bling for the finished product!

I also sent this lovely pink egg, made by Jason Parker Counce.

The vintage flowers are soooo pretty. I do hope that she enjoys

her goodies, as much as I will enjoy hers! Just wish I had more

time for swaps. I have been busy with high school baseball games

and college track meets, so that leaves little time for creating.

I will be heading to Kansas soon for a creative weekend with Hope

and others at Karla's cottage!! I will share photos soon. Happy Sunday.

Happy Heart Day!

I love the pinks of Valentine's Day. This is the center piece of a
banner I made at Kim's house yesterday. I really like the
gathered seam binding for a pretty ruffled edge.

Cute couple hanging out in the moon.

Flowered love train.....note the heart smoke signals!

This little gal is too cute.

And the last piece...a veiled Valentine.

And finally, my son Kyle (on the right) and 2 of his friends from
last night. His first Sadie Hawkins dance. Ahhhh, they do
grow up fast. Have a great Valentine's day.....filled with

Special Delivery.....

....arrived today from Danielle. This was such a fun swap.
This is my beautiful heart made by Jill and it is perfect!

Another close up....I love the neutral background and the wedding
couple is precious.

Jill made this flower and I may have to give it a try myself.
That is what I love about swapping.....learning from others.

Her details are wonderful! Notice the petite letter with poseys.

Danielle asked that we send 12 small goody bags filled with
our choice of vintage items. Everything is still wrapped.

Feast your eyes.....ribbons, laces, vintage images, buttons
and wonderful tickets!!

More feasting.....vintage wallpaper, postcards, glass glitter, mica
stamped fabric.....oh my my. I love it all!!

A closer look at 2 of the packages that were extra special. Jennifer
made the red felted bag and Heidi made the ruffled burlap bag.
I am so happy with my new heart and all of my goodies!! Thanks
to everyone and especially Danielle for hosting. Be sure to check
out Danielle's blog soon as she will be showing all of our hearts.

Valentine inspiration.....

I just finished my project for Danielle's swap.
Just a small group of 12 gals and we were
to make a paper Valentine heart.

I used some of my favorites.....flocked wallpaper,
vintage lace and ribbon, music paper and this
beautiful German scrap piece.

I really love vintage flowers....the texture of the
velvet petals is so pretty and really adds to
any creative project.

Danielle asked that we decorate the backside, but
not as ornate. So, I hope my partner likes this. I
used vintage wallpaper, buttons and platinum
stickles around the edge.

We also made 12 little goody bags, no bigger than
postcard size. I sewed wax paper pockets for
all of my vintage lovelies.

Pretty packages. Now I am looking forward to February's mail.

Happy Weekend!!
