Sick Days and Swaps

Miss S is sick - nothing too serious, but an inexplicable temperature over 100 the last two days. It has been nice to call in to work yesterday and today:) I've been able to get a few crafty things done, some packages ready to mail, and some much needed cleaning around the house. I made Miss S the CUTEST apron for Valentine's Day last night - I'll take a picture of her in it tomorrow.

I went to check the mail yesterday and my box was filled to the brim with goodies! I received some fabulous lip gloss from this sweet woman that I am testing for her:)
Also - my Sweet Pea Valentine's package arrived from Meg, and a wonderful surprise from K8tykat arrived too.


A beautiful chocolate box filled with all sorts of bits and bobbles - and tiles that spell my name! What a wonderful and thoughtful gift - thank you Kerry!!



And look at all these goodies from Meg! The CD is of all Beatles love songs - so cool!!! Lots of candy, vintage Valentine's, candles, handmade goodies and more! Thank you Meg!!

Have a great day!!

You have made one big score on this Valentine's loot. I'm sure it's because you are so sweet.

wow! I have just read through your blog and I am stuffed, how do you fit so much in your life? :-) I just recieved your Valentine Card, it took a long time to reach me from New Mexico. Thanks so much for making this beautiful card and the letter, it will join the others on my shelf :-) Has my card made its way to you yet? Oh you have also inspired me to see if the Red Cross is doing any kind of packages thing to the Australian troops fighting in the middle east. I could put a package together I am sure!

Oh I love swapping, but the postage is a killer!

What are vintage valentine's? I've never heard of them before!
