I am artist of texture and color. I enjoy working with textiles, mixed media and the graphic arts. I am an avid cottage gardener with a love for pass along plants and big fluffy pink peonies and pink roses. Many of my tangible creations reflect my love of the garden and all its wonderful colors. I am not one who will settle for neutral colors as they bore me. I have been selling my creations online since 2002 beginning as a hobby and 10 years later my art is my full time passion.

Valentine swaps!

I was involved in a couple of very fun swaps this year and I am going to share them with my blogging friends!

The first one is a swap that was organized by Dolly of 

this is what I sent her
a heart shape mixing bowl loaded with goodies
and a handmade tussie mussie!

this is what she sent me

a pretty handmade card, salt dough hearts, a heart ornament candy and assorted vintage buttons and gems

NEXT...the other swap...at Etsy Cottage Style Ning This was a Secret Valentine Friend swap where it is a secret who you are getting your gift from
My secret friend was Sherri Pruitt and this is what she sent me!

Hand made felt items, chocolate truffles (yum),cookie and cupcake mixes, coffee mug with coffee, candle even a little heart picture frame!

My secret friend I sent to was Carmen Mays
and this is what I sent her!

Carmen likes pink Victorian things so I made her a soft lacy tussie mussie filled with chocolates and her favorite candy is peanut butter fudge.I couldn't find it anywhere to buy, so I made some for her at 
home and decorated a pretty little box. Also a gift box of gardenia bath products, and few other fun things.

This year was fun fun fun. I love swaps! Now on to Easter.....

Yes, we must have talked before, sweetpea, because I wouldn't forget someone in Sublimity, OR. I also love marionberry pie when we go to McGrath's Fish House for dinner. Love Bunny and I eat one together. It's my favorite restaurant because I love fish. Nice to chat again.
