Love is in the Air

I want to give you a little peek. A peek into
some of the swaps I have been working on.
This is a swap with a group of past &
present Silver Bella girls.
Started by Alanna George because of the
fact she would be unable to attend
Silver Bella 2010.... she asked if we wanted
to do a spring ornament swap last winter. 15 of us
eagerly joined. Let me tell you....there are some
very talented women in this group.
So while I squealed
and opened that first box of ornaments.....in my mind
I knew I wanted to be in another swap. Then we swapped
for a Halloween Ornament Swap. We again were not
disappointed. So....without a moments hesitation....
the Valentine Ornament Swap began. So now as we
scurry about packaging the lovelies into
the finest wrapping and get them boxed up to send
lovingly to Alanna....I thought I would give just
a little peek at my pretties.

In my mind I cheat just a little. I have been
going the easy route and making a
soldered ornament. The girls seem
to enjoy them & boast about them....
so....I add to the swap with a little
soldered lovely. It's what I am into now...so
that's what I have been doing.



My photos don't do them actual justice. I
think you can get the general idea. I really don't
want the best photo....since it is really just
a peek. After I receive the whole swap.....I will
post more photos. I hope that you have enjoyed
this little snippet of my Valentine Ornament
Swap.....because love really is in the air
around here. Blessings for an artfully
creative evening.
