As for the Valentine Swap, it was lots of fun! Have you ever participated in a swap before? I haven't, this is my first one. I am sure lots of you have, but for those of you who haven't I suggest you try it out sometime. It is a great way to meet new people, and create for someone else. In return, you receive a creation from their heart as well. Jamie, I hope when you receive this on Monday, you truly enjoy the Valentine. PS, be sure to remove the heart lock and wear it proudly on a necklace! As for swaps, I have another one I am preparing for on http://www.speckled-egg.blogspot.com/. It is a "Flea Market Swap" where we stuff lots of vintage goodies into a box for each person in our group. I can't wait to put these together for my partners, you know that I have tons of vintage yummies in my stash!
