Hanging Hearts

Before I get into my swap goodies let me apologize for giving many of you heart attacks by suggesting I might cut up that chenille spread. Don't worry! I won't be cutting. :)

My hanging hearts swap partner is Wendy. This was her first swap and she recently started a blog. She. Is. Awesome. Seriously. We hit it off immediately and have exchanged many emails and pictures. I'm so glad to have met her! She sent an awesome package! It totally made my package to her look sad. ;)

BTW, Wendy, there is little heart glitter all over the place! LOL

Look at the Goodness! She made the awesome quilted bag and hanging heart and also included a cute monkey picture she found at the thrift store (a monkey holding a cupcake, how perfect for me!), a pink and brown Alaska hat, chocolates, Alaskan soap and lip balm, an altered match box, embroidery floss and the funniest nose shaped pencil sharpener that I had to hide from my husband.

Gorgeous! As you all know by now, I love pink and brown and this was the first time Wendy used the color combo and it turned out great! Look at that fancy pants stitching!

Thank you so much for such a wonderful swap! While my package was not so nearly full of Goodness I hope you liked the sweet Sophie I made for you:

I wanted to do something different and hope she makes you smile when you look at her. :)


I have more of my magical mail to share tomorrow but first I need to ask a favor. PLEASE send me some "finish what you started" jou-jou. I seem to have fallen into a creative slump this last week and can't seem to see anything through to the end. So send me your good vibes so I can get some stuff out of the WIP pile. :)

Wow! You had a great partner there! Good luck with your WIP's. I am not very good at finishing things either. I pretty much have to force myself to finish an old project before I start anything new.

Wow Rebecca -- awesome swap! Love all the pink and brown -- perfect for Valentine's day. And I'm sure Wendy will be thrilled with your adorable doll too!

That doll is adorable!

Well, I don't know if this is jou-jou, but know that you won't be alone in working on those projects! I've locked myself in my studio to try to get some stuff finished. I'm with you in spirit! : )

I'll send you some jou-jou if you'll send it back to me when you are done with it!
