Valentine Swap

From Viv
 Happy February everyone! I have enjoyed this month so far. It has included a fun swap that Viv from Viv out on a Whim had this year! What a fun swap this was and a fun challenge for me, too!
We were to make a Valentine card and a decoration, and include lots of goodies or joy!
From Viv

 As, you can see, Viv really did a great job of spoiling me! I sure had fun opening each little present that she individually wrapped for me! I had an empty spot on my old Singer sewing machine which made a great place to put all her wonderful Valentines! She made a cute decorated Valentine box, a beautiful deer Valentine on a spool, a sweet girl on a swing, and the sweetest heart ornament with a key! She also included plenty of chocolate to keep me smiling, and some pretty towels for my kitchen! Do you see those cute paper globes? I have never had any of these before! I am excited to use them in my decorating throughout Spring!

From Viv
 I am really amazed by Viv's talent. I am thankful for her swap and the challenge it provided for me to flex my creative muscles. Bloggers are the most talented people and doing a little something outside of my comfort zone is fun in a challenging and learning way!
I sent Viv a package of Valentine fun as well, which she kindly has posted about on her blog.
So I hope you go give her a visit and take a look at those as well!

But here is a peek at a few things that I made for her!

I have made friends with gals that I share more interests with than the people most of the people I interact with every day. Thank you so much for your friendships!

God bless you,

    How is Bear behaving today? :-) Bam Bam does that too, run away, if he gets out the front door, and it scares me to death. He is so hard to catch! Takes a lot of treats to lure him back inside. Hope you are having a good weekend,
