Swap Sweetness

Saturday I received the best surprise in the mail when I got a package from Heather at The Speckled Egg who is my swap partner in Artsy Mama's Valentine's swap. It is a jaw dropping assortment of fun things that I can use for my Valentine crafting. And more! Oh, how it made my heart go pitter patter to open that gorgeous box and slowly start to pull everything out to admire. I had to threaten both of my girls to keep them out of the box until I was done. Lots of begging and questions about sharing ensued. Maybe if I hide the box in my studio they will forget about it.

  15. Sorry, Jen, this is totally random and unrelated. I see that linen is one of your loves (it's one of mine, too!), so I'm curious to know what your fave linen stores (online or brick and mortar) are. I just posted about it this morning. I'm looking for some "new" linen stores.

    Thanks!

  22. Hi there! Bad me...I haven't been by in awhile. Life has been wild, crazy and for me, but things have calmed down and I've enjoyed getting to "catch up" on what you've been doing. You've been busy too. I especially loved the sweet post about your hubby.

    Hugs!
