I SOOO LOVE VALENTINES DAY!!! MY FAVORITE HOLIDAY! this year i am in several swaps for the holiday! i didn't get a chance to photo the vintage valentine swap...didn't have the camera and i wanted to get it out to lisa! so it will be a suprize for her!
here are a couple of the swaps i have done...
the first one is the valentine box swap...my partner is Genevieve...and her daugher, Isabelle!

miss isabelle will have to be suprized with hers...as again didn't have the camera...lol..thinking the kids need their own...so they won't have to use MINE! LOL

another swap is thru one of the yahoo groups i'm in...

we were to create a fabric cone and embellish it...SAMMY is my partner...i used all kinds of vintage goodies on the outside and then made a mothie doll and named her cupid and tucked her into a pocket in the inside...the pocket i made from some of a pocket from a vintage suitcase pocket.

The pocket is a wonderful idea! I've seen them hung on walls before, but not used this way. I really like it. And of course, want to see what is in that goodie pocket!

That fabric cone is magnificent! I just adore it - the pocket with the doll, the colors, the stitching, everything! I was just looking at the slide show of Maxx, and I can't believe how much he and Maddie look alike! The same eyes!
