Valentine Spoolie Swap!

I joined the Valentine Spoolie Swap hosted by
Sue assigned Debra from It's All Good blog and I as partners.

When the package came I got excited just seeing this.
 Debra sent me so many delectable goodies.  Everything was packaged in a
beautiful Susan Winget box, lovely!  


Just a wonderful packet of goodness...crafted card, peppermint lotion & gel,
sweet tags, white stars, rubber word stamps, doily, color your own
conversation hearts, Hershey kisses (yum)....and.....

LOOK at what she made for me!   This wonderful spoolie and heart! 
Deb is a talented artist (obviously), and makes these precious mice.
  I'm so lucky to have one! Oh, and the tuffet she sits on doubles as a pin cushion.

Really...are you in love with her?  I know I sure am.

Love this heart (pin cushion) and thought it was prettily decorated with lots of bling.

Turns out, some of that bling is actually a beautiful necklace.  Yup, jewelry making is
another one of Deb's talents! & of course she made the heart, and see the sweet
 "love" embroidered on it?
I'm so thankful to Debra for her generosity and thoughtfulness,
and for sharing her creativity in these treasures made just for me! 
& while I'm sharing...

Now that both of my swap partners have received their packages, I can share
the goodies I sent them.  This is the spoolie and box I made for Debra (Deb)
 Whoops, cut off the top with the sweet Valentine.
& here is all the loot I sent her. 
 I also signed up for Sandy's Valentine swap at 521 Lake Street
(link on sidebar) and was paired with sweet Debbie from My Vintage Daydreams.
(link to Debbie's post if you want to visit)
We decorated a box and filled it with goodies.  Debbie loves cherubs, so
here is the box and tag I made for her. 

 and another little box I decorated as a home for the cherub I altered for her.
and all Debbie's loot!   
These two swaps have been more than "fun", I've made 2 new blogging friends and am
very grateful to have done so, and to Sandy & Sue for hosting!
  It seems I was destined to be paired with Debbie's/Debra's this year. 
 LUCKY me!
