February *aRt*pArTy*!!

Another Swap!!
We had our monthly club meeting,
now known as *aRt*pArTy*!!, this week.
Marti was hostess, and the theme was
"Paris, je t'aime" (I love Paris),
and we had a little crepes bar...
spinach souffle, sauteed mushrooms, bechamel sauce,
ham, and cheese were the dinner fillings,
and for dessert fillings we had
raspberries, strawberries and chocolate!!


We swapped cones

and I received this gorgeous cone from Ginger,
filled with lovely things.

We also made these beautiful chandelier drops:

Sooo much fun!

(My adorable daughter and son-in-law
in front of the LOVE sculpture in NYC.)

We all had a blast at Paper Tales' Valentine Swap on Friday!
There were about 15 of us,
and it was so fun to see what everyone created.
I received this lovely necklace from Julie,
who coincidentally received my Valentine cone
(we drew numbers).
Take a look at their blog for more pictures.

We had lovely things to eat and drink...
who wouldn't love eating, drinking, swapping and shopping?!!
A good time was had by all...
I hope we can get together
and swap projects on a regular basis.

Happy Valentine's Day to you and your loved ones!

Thrift Store Thursday

I did a tour of the local thrift shops for the first time in a long while, really since way before Christmas. Actually the pickings were quite slim, but for a very determined shopper like me, there were a few gems:

I just love that little Napco chickie bursting from her egg, and the pieces of handmade lace were bundled together in a plastic bag for 25 cents!! Diamonds in the rough! And some vintage crocheted potholders, always love to find those!

More Hearts! More Flowers!

As promised, here are some more spreads from my
Valentine Accordian Journal.

I love this project so much I've started a second journal!!

I love the new Tim Holz tissue tapes, they're perfect for this type of journal. And now Hambly has a beautiful new line of washi tapes!

Thanks for visiting! Have a great day!

Hearts and Flowers!!

I am so looking forward to Friday night,
one of my fave shops, Paper Tales,
is having a Valentine Swap ;
here's what I'm swapping:

A paper cone trimmed with beads and raggedy red rose trim...
Within are tucked some little art goodies of the
red, pink and romantic type :)

Ever since our last *aRt*pArTy*!! meeting,
I have been adding to my Valentine Art Journal,
here are some of the spreads I've been working on.

I just love Valentine's Day, what lovely inspiration!!

I will post more layouts tomorrow...ish...
Hope you are all having fun with your Valentine crafting!!
