Happy 2010!!

I hope everyone had a very happy New Year's Eve and is enjoying a relaxing day with family and friends today!! As the new year unfolds, lots of new swaps are being held in honor of Valentine's Day- which us PINK lovers LOVE!! Lol :) That said, I have signed up for an Amour Valentine swap held by Cathy Scalise of Treasured Heirlooms and Elegance & Whimsy!! For this swap, you make a large heart shaped box for your partner in the color of their choice and fill it with "goodies from the heart"!! If you are interested in joining, please click here to visit Cathy for more information!


And, I have been accepted into another swap - the Petite Inspiration Box Swap!! This one is hosted by Heather of the Speckled Egg!! In this swap, you are assigned a group of 4 and make 3 large match sized boxes for the other 3 members of your group. Then you fill it with vintage inspiration bits and bobs! Please click here to be taken to the Speckled Egg's blog where Heather will give you more information and directions on how to enter!


Lately, I have been bad at taking pictures of the new things I've made!! So I'm sorry for the lack of pictures! But I do have several things to share with you about past swaps and other goings on during the holiday season! Next post and we'll be up to date!!

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful first day of the new yar!

Hey Julie Ann Girl,
Looks like you'll be busy creating Valentine love for a little while with those beautiful swaps you're in!!! Yay!!!
I just realized that I'll be able to meet Cathy (Treasured Heirlooms) in April at Jennifer's art retreat in Savannah. Since I'm about to leave on my cruise, I haven't had time to "play" and get to meet everyone yet but I'm getting excited. I wish you could come too!!!
I can't wait to see all of your creations so don't forget to get that camera out girl and snap some photos and share with us!!!!
Enjoy your swaps full of love~
everything vintage
