The Goods (or why I'm too busy to cook dinner)

So here are some of the results of all that studio mess. I've been busy making Valentines and match boxes filled with goodies.

These were for my friends Carrie

and Hope and were kind of a trial run for a swap I'm participating in. I'll be working on the swap today and tomorrow, so I guess no dinner for my family for a couple more days.

We have some potentially big snows on the way today and tomorrow & since I'll likely be house bound, I hope to be productive. I also hope to get the chance to catch up with all of you and maybe answer some of your recent questions. And by the way, hey there Followers! It is so nice to meet all of you. I hope to be coming by and paying you visits this week. You are so sweet to come visit me.

By the way, I saw The Curious Case of Benjamin Button yesterday. Loved it. Cried my eyes out, but loved every minute of it. It sure made me hug my wonderful, Sweet Hubby a little tighter all day long.

  2. Your creations are just beautiful.

    Didn't see the movie, but now I think I will since you recommend it.

    Be sure to come by The Serenity Gate for the big Valentine giveaway.

  3. Benjamin Buttons was an awesome movie. I don't follow the Hollywood scene at all...and go to even fewer movies, but this was special. As one of the proud recipients of her first Valentine's & Swap practice, trust me the photos don't do them justice. They are gorgeous & I am so happy to know Jen. Thanks & happy creating!! Love you sweet girl! Wish we were creating together...how fun would that be!
    XO~Hope

  17. Love the Valentine's goodies!

    I'm jealous of your snow:) My 7yo daughter asked me today if Indiana had had any snow yet. She was most disappointed to hear that she had missed some really good snowman making :)

  19. I absolutely adore your paper creations!! I think I'm inspired to make a few for my really good friends close to me to tell them how special they are! Wish I could make a bunch (like 40?) for all the sweet old folks at the home I am taking our youth group to for V-Day.....a simpler version will have to do!
