Valentine Swap 2010

So, I signed up for a valentine swap that was organized by Heather at Speckled Egg.  My 3 partners were Cerri,
Rhea and Elyse.   My 3 boxes are all finished and mailed.  Swaps are a lot of fun and a good way to cheer up any winter doldrums you may have.

 We covered large matchboxes and stuffed them full of goodies.  I'd show you what was inside but I'm not actually sure that the drawer will close if I open it.  I took the term "stuffed full" quite literally, you see.

This one was covered with vintage wallpaper, ribbons, flowers and  vintage jewelry.  The color is much prettier than this picture is showing here.  That's what happens when there is NO SUN!!!  (I'm a little crabby about the no sun thing.  Sorry...)

This box is covered with some really pretty vintage giftwrap.  It also has vintage flowers and ribbons plus a framed picture of a  little girl.

This box is covered in a pale, pale pink paper with more vintage "bits and bobs" attached.  Feathers, old crocheted pieces, a fairy button and Cinderella's shoe.

This swap was a lot of fun.

Now I'm going to take down my Christmas trees.


You heard right.

I know.... I know...
Don't tell anyone. Okay?
