Breathing a sigh of relief...

The Christmas decor is all put away (well almost) and my Valentine goodies have started creeping out for their display through the month of Feb. I just love all the warm reds, pinks, silvers and whites. After sadly putting away my 2 awesome 12 days of Christmas books from previous swaps and my Twinchie advent calender, things were looking bare. But bare to me is a blank canvas waiting for its first smears of brightly colored acrylics and creativity. Oh what fun!



My next exciting creative endeavor is this weekend and I am just tickled about it! I am preparing myself for the Marie Antoinette Soiree hosted by Miss Kim Caldwell. It is going to be the event of the season for sure!



I spent the better part of tonight assembling books for the swap I have hosted "If I were Marie, I would..." and the girls each made a page telling what they would do. After the reveal on Saturday, I will post them. They are truly amazing. I am such a lucky girl to have such crafty friends!

I am also participating in a wand swap. Goodness knows why I signed up for this one, I always have such grandiose ideas and then... BLAMMO! I am hit with the reality that I actually have to make this stuff! I will post whatever I come up with. It should be nothing less that interesting. Send crafty vibes my way... I need them!

Gee, Gina..it is just going to suck. Silly, you are one of the most creative women out there....it will be fine. Your swap partner is going to be thinking she is the luckiest girl out there for getting you as a partner. :) Have fun at Kim's and post lots of pictures.

I love the the birthday banner that you made for your friend!
Did you do the letting yourself or did you buy it somewhere?
Please share your secret!
