I've made the deadline!!

Yay!! I've made the deadline for my Valentines Swaps.  This is only my second swap I have participated in.  It has been so much fun and I'm hoping everyone enjoys the goodies that I'm sending out.  Here are a few of the goodies I'm sending to my partners, but shhhh...it's a secret!

 Package #1

I made the love banner so that she could use is for more than just
Valentine's Day and she likes blue.

*I've finally FINISHED something.*

I have all of these ideas floating around in my head and decided to sit down and get busy.  It took me long enough and I am sure I have forgotten some of the ideas I wanted to do in the first place.  Oh well, maybe I need to keep a little note pad.

# Thirft Store Finds #

Look at that Bling...
all of that Cream...

 all of that Pink...

and look at that Heart!!

I had to go to Wal Mart for work today, stopped in at a large thrift store and did not see much.  Disappointment set in.  After work, stopped by my faithful, tiny thrift store (in town where I live) and look at all of the goodies I found!!  Very Happy!

* LeT's SwAp StAsH*

  (I thought this was a cute idea, just a dollar store heart I fancied up a little)

I have been thinking on the lines of having a * StAsH SwAp *.  Everyone is talking about de-cluttering and reorganizing their craft rooms and such.  If you are like me, you probably have a lot of EXTRA this and that that you can not possibly use or tired of.  So how about having a swap?  We could fill a small or large box of things we no longer want or need and swap with someone else. 
We would be GREEN and have a surprise package!  Let me know what you think, and if we have participates, we could do this at the end of February, because I know alot of you guys already have Valentines Swaps you are participating in, maybe we could do spring/Easter stash swaps.

Trying to Make It

I am really trying hard to finish Valentines, but other projects keep popping in my head, I'm steadily making Valentines instead of  finishing the ones I've already started.  Do any of you do the same thing?

 This little box I found at Dollar General, originally it had a snowman on it.

 another unfinished Valentine....

 I just love this paper doll. I started on her.

Wishing everyone a Happy Wednesday!!

Making Progress

Making progress on the V-Day items, but I had to return to work today.  One of my New Years Resolutions is to do what makes me happy and crafting really makes me happy.  Somehow I will just have to take time out to do some crafting!

These are not quite finished yet.

Look at my stash!

Look at my stash I found while going through my Valentines box, and that is just some of it.  I don't remember buying a lot of it, I'm sure it was on sale! Maybe I should do this for every season, it is like opening a present and finding a surprise!

Oh the possibilities...
