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!!

Snow Days in Tennessee.....

...and Juju is loving it! We had a few inches early Monday
morning and maybe it will start to melt today. Juju hops
in the snow like a bunny and really has fun. Me...well I
am ready for Spring!

More swapping photos.....

The glitter is finally settling as I continue to pack up
my holiday decorations. So, I have a little free time
to share some of my Silver Bella swaps. This is
the wonderful altered bottle that I received from
Renee, and it is beautiful! Filled with rose
petals and her "hands" are rose buds.

The details are so lovely. She will stay on my creative
desk, so that I can enjoy her everyday.

This is the bottle that I made and my partner likes
pink. I am not an expert with sautering, but had
fun with the top of the bottle.

I used a rosary chain to hang the pretty pink bling.

My bella bag from Heather. I had requested blue,
off white and lace.....Heather got it just right!

I really like my tulle/lace flower with pearls and rhinestone
button. I love it!

My partner had no special requests, so when I scored
this beautiful barkcloth at the flea market.....I just
had to use it for the bag. I believe this new bag
used to be curtains....I do like to repurpose items.

I also used vintage lace and gathered silk ribbon for
a flower and pinned in on with a pretty rhinestone
brooch. I really enjoyed making and receiving both
