Happy Valentine’s Day!!!

I hope that this day of love finds you celebrating with the ones who bring you joy!

Look what I got for the occasion!!!!!!!!!!!! Or should I say.... WHO!!!

It's a Cheery Cherry Mouse from Myko Bocek Studios!!! Myko creates the cutest needle felted animals I've ever seen, and I've wanted one of her cuties ever since I saw her shop!!! Here's the first one in my collection :) Isn't she the CUTEST!!!!??? Matty Pie is the Bestest!!!! :)

Today, I have pictures of swaps to share with you :) I recently participated in two swaps- Speckled Egg’s Petite Inspiration Box Swap and Cathy’s Amour Valentines Swap! Here are pictures of the boxes I made…
