I Got Valentine’s Day Happy Mail!

Friday I went to the post office and found our mail box stuffed, as I hadn’t been for a couple of days. I was expecting a small package, which was there, but there was also an unexpected package. After prying all the letters and packages out of our mail box I saw that the unexpected package was from my dear and crafty friend Camilla. It was a total surprise as we were not doing a craft swap. I was so excited to get home and see what she sent me.

The mailing box had really cute French themed duct tape on it, however, it was hard to get into and it got a little too mangled for me to show you. This is what I pulled out of the box.

Oooh, what could it be?

 

Beautiful Altered Spool

Look at this beautiful altered spool Camilla made for me. Everything about it is so well done and pretty. And I just LOVE rosettes! Look at all the detail she put into it, down to the stick pin in the front. Thank you so much my crafty friend. I will “scrap” you back when you least expect it!!!

Embellishment Swap

Camilla and I just finished another arts and crafts swap! This swap was for embellishments to be used in our various crafts. The only real rules were that we had to make them ourselves and swap a minimum of 50 pieces. Other than that, we were allowed to make whatever we wanted. Here are some of the embellies I made for Camilla.

I also made her some charms, Christmas “postage stamps” and layered paper flowers. For some reason, however, I forgot to take pictures of those embellishments. 

Here is what Camilla presented me with!

Stickpins. Yes great minds think alike!

Once again Camilla and I made each other some of the same type of items, however, they are still all unique in their own way. Each of us made other embellishments that were altogether different.

I am so glad I have a partner to swap crafts with because it gives me an opportunity to try new things and learn new techniques. I am super excited to have all these amazing embellishments and can’t wait to incorporate them into my crafts.

Thank you Camilla for a wonderful time at lunch and for leaving me with a box full of little inspirations!
