Amour Valentine Swap Revealed!

I joined Cathy @ her Amour Valentine Swap and it was a ton of fun! My swap partner was Lisa @ Pupylov and she sent some amazing goodies for me! I couldn't have asked for a better partner! Thanks Lisa!!!!!!

This is what my delightful goodies looked like when I opened the box! Ooohhh I was just so excited. This was almost better than Christmas, ha!
As you can see..
everything was wrapped...

so very nicely! I almost didn't want to open them. Almost!
This is the lovely box she crafted for me. So cute!!!!!
Lisa included so many wonderful items!
Vintage Valentines!

Wonderful Crafting Goodies...

Vintage Jello Mold, PINK Salt, & Flower Silicone Molds...

Beautiful paper, PINK M & M's, sweet little heart... oh and you might note the candy right
under the M & M's. It was actually a 3-pack but I ate 2 of them before I took the picture, ha!
Yea, they were good: )

A pretty mug...

Some very pretty pink earrings (sorry the pic is not too good!)...

Some Valentine Hearts, a cupid, and some pretty glitter!

I am sure I missed something. There were just so many wonderful gifts!
Once again I just can't thank Lisa enough!

I thought I would share some of the items I sent to Lisa. I started with a Heart Box I created for her with Vintage Ribbon, Paper Flowers and pretty papers!

I also crafted this journal for her...

the inside cover...
The front....
A pretty floral accent...
Another view of the front...

I filled the box with so many goodies.... trying to add what I thought Lisa might like...

some millinery, vintage music sheets, labels, perfume....

crafting goodies and of course some hearts...

more useful goodies...

vintage buttons...
And you just have to include some yummy Valentine's Candy!
Please be sure to visit all of the Amour Valentine Swap participants!

Hi Jacalyn,

What a lovely lot of Valentine goodies given and received. Thank you so much for participating in my very first swap and making it such a wild success.

Happy Valentines Day,

xo Cathy

Lisa said...

Oh I am so glad you enjoyed all your goodies! I sure had fun with the whole thing! I think I bought something everywhere I went! hehe I do like to shop! I do love my box! Sorry I couldn't find a heart! Seems I was one of the few! But I think she turned out cute anyway! I have a pic of the Heart box opened on my new computer as a wallpaper. I can just sit and look at it! Thank you again for all the goodies! I'm glad you like the pink ball candy, I had not tried it but it was pink and sounded yummy! Happy Valentine's Day!
Hugs, Lisa

It is interesting that you're a clinical social worker!
I've been doing Psychosocial Rehabilitation for the past 4 years and am applying for the Masters in Counseling program at Idaho State. I love having a happy outlet when work gets too be too much, that's why I have my store/blog/etc. We have a lot in common!
