I mentioned in a post or two ago that I was making hearts for a Valentine's swap, and I would show you a picture of them (if I had one- oops). I was in such a rush to get them down that I completely forget to take a picture of the finished product!
When I received my box in the mail, I opened it, but then quickly put it away. Have you ever done that? It's kind of like getting a new, fab magazine- you look through it a bit and save the rest for another time.
I don't have much alone time these days, and saving these treats was like a little gift to myself. I waited about a week, then pulled them out one night, while the kids were asleep and the house was quiet. Each one was unique! The best part about a swap with a theme is seeing how each artist interprets it.
I didn't actually get a chance to hang all of them up, which was a shame. I wanted to string them like a banner, with tiny clothespins, but that stuff is all packed away. So, I'll put them away, to be hung in our new home.
From swap hostess Tammy:
A gorgeous card, and a sweet ruffled heart.
From Jeanne over at Dream, Create, Inspire:
Lots of layers and red!
This really cool envelope is made from a dress pattern, with the inside reinforced with fusible web, so it is really thick and durable.
From Vivian over at Viv's Whimsy:
This little girl on a swing is so sweet!
From Sandy over at Sandy's Creations:
I lvo the 3D pop of the heart, and who can resist red glitter!
From Tammy's mom, Ruth, who does the most amazing crocheting and tatting:
My favorite color!
From Grace over at Pink In the City, a bag full of goodies:
I love the 'stache, and this amazing heart with wings and a Charlotte head!!
From Natalea ofver at Kandeland:
I love the three girls- reminds me of me and my sisters.
Thank you Tammy, for hosting this swap!
