I have been busy.....

I really have been busy!

I was in a shoebox swap on CMB, which was a lot of fun! I had the opportunity to make a new friend through the swap, and look forward to meeting her in person! The swap included a few altered and handmade items, so here are a few of the things I got to make for Margorie...

...these are my absolute favorite items out of everything I made! I had the opportunity to be "sneaky" and upload a pic of her pups from SparkPeople and was able to use it to make these adorable PUP-fairy flies!


This is a couple of tin boxes I altered with alcohol inks. I did need some directions on this, and Nancy/FortheLoveofTim helped me through the learning process. YAY for people who love to share their knowledge of their crafts!






After learning to etch for the Shoebox Swap, I just kept etching....
I made this for Karrilee for the BFF Valentine's Swap on SparkPeople because the little Elfster guy drew her name as my partner!


Funny, the Elfster guy drew my name for her....here are all the cool things she sent my way for the Valentine's Swap. She ROCKS!


Here I am smooching my SMOOCH!


I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day and was able to spend the day being with those you love, doing what you love! We spent the day traveling to our parents houses, having heart-shaped meatloaf, and chocolate fondue....yep, you guessed it... all the people and things I love!
