Cathy's Treasured Heirlooms Amour Valentine Swap Reveal

For Valentine's Day, I participated in Treasured Heirlooms, Cathy Scalise's Amour Valentine swap.  This was Cathy's first "gig" as a swap hostess and she had an amazing turnout of over 60 participants. My Partner was Lisa Hogan of Lisa's Craftique Boutique. (side note: I love to go there to listen to Michael Buble!!!) Our assignment was to fill a heart-shaped box with goodies our partner would enjoy and if you couldn't find a heart-shaped box, you could substitute another shape box. I couldn't find the heart boxes this year so I used a rectangle box and Lisa did the same. My gifts from Lisa,including the box, are the following...

Bits and bobs for crafting, a sweet teddy bear, notecards and a pen, candies, a candle, vintage handkercheif and a vintage card. The box was glittery and sparkley and was decorated with cute valentines. Thanks  Lisa, for all of the lovely gifts!  hope this was as much fun for you as it was for me!
My gifts to Lisa included a decorated candle in pinks, some truffles, some ephemera for crafting and a doily, a heart doorhanger (handmade but not by me). Everything was given in the painted and decoupaged box altred with some ephemera, vintage seam binding, crocheted doily and beautiful Anna Griffin scrapbook paper that looks for all the world like vintage wallpaper.There are additional pictures on my Flickr photostream here.




Thank you Cathy, for hosting this beautifully themed and fun swap! I'm sure you are exhausted after all of the matching and follow-up! Put your feet up and enjoy some chocolate!

xoxo
