Valentine's Day Swap

Don't you just love swaps? I get so excited anticipating what my partner has in store for me. And crafting for a swap is such a good excuse to make all those cute little things that only another crafter would appreciate.

This swap was hosted by the wonderful crafter Vivian of My partner was Shirley from She sent me some goodies, don't you agree?

Lots of fun embellishments, including ribbons, washi tape, and scrabble pieces. (Love!)  And look at this sweet notebook and hanger she made with vintage Disney images:

I love this shadowbox that Shirley made. Such sweet images and details. (Thumper is my favorite:)
She also included a box of truffles, but they were gone before I could get a pic of them! Thank you, Shirley, for all of your thoughtful crafting. 

Here are some of the things I made for Shirley. I decorated a tin and filled it with things I thought she could use for more Valentine's crafting.


 I also decorated a small box and filled it with buttons, pins, ribbon and flowers.

I love making tags! I had just bought some glitter paper and wanted to use it with this love die. What's Valentine's without glitter and bling.? (I loved Shirley's use of red tinsel on her shadowbox.)

So, what kind of Valentine's crafting have you been doing? I would love to see!



Please don't blame me for more baby pictures:)
