Heart Swap #1

Back in early January, my friend Jennifer posted she was going to host a Winter White Heart Swap.  The rules were only that the heart should be in some shade of Winter White, and they should be approximately the size of our hand.  They could be any medium of our choosing.   I couldn't wait to get started!

This was my contribution for this swap:

   Look at this beautiful heart by Lonnie Jenck:

I love this fabric heart with embellishments.  I'm not sure who the creator is since the packaging got separated from the hearts.  If you recognize who made it - let me know!

 This is a lovely paper heart with beautiful lace embellishment - again, I don't know who created this one.

This pretty heart has chunky glitter and multi-colored pearls and was made by Jill Sibbald:

I'm not sure who was the creator of this heart as there was no name attached but it is a paper and chenile heart with a fun "love" tag.

My friend Jennifer Barnes made this beautiful heart with so many layers and textures:

 Patty Cross came up with this pretty fabric heart adorned with glittered clay wings:

Another sweet fabric heart, I'm not sure who made this one either~!

This heart came all the way from Germany!  Our friend Wanda created this precious heart with a fun glittered heart in the little pocket on front.

This was a really fun swap to participate in and came at the perfect time after the holidays.

Next up, I'll post about the  3 inchey swap I took place in, so check back!

Valentine Soiree

Yesterday was Bobbie's Valentine Soiree at the Paper Crown.  It's always such a great time creating beautiful projects and just spending time with friends.  Of course, Bobbie made us these cute name tags:

Look how adorable this treat station is!  We never go hungry at these events that is for sure - and do you see all the sweet gift bags?  Every single person in class went home with a door prize.  We were all  in love with the banner adorning the booth and one lucky person got to take it home.  

These were our kits.  Inside the frame were all the components for making our main project, and the small bag to the left contained materials for making a little party favor.  

Here's a few of the ladies with their completed projects.

Me and Shelley:

It's always a good time crafting at the Paper Crown.  Also yesterday we found out the details (and signed up for) the Spring Retreat!  Click here for more details.  Space is limited to 30 so if you think you might want to go - sign up now.  Believe me, classes fill up very quickly.
