So much to catch up on.... Part 1
Well, as usual, my life seems to have become pretty hectic again! I tell you, I thought that 2014 was going to be a quiet year for me but so far I have:
- Broken a toe (technically this was in 2013 but it was the day after Christmas which is almost the New Year!
- Had my front tooth extracted - Strega Nonna rules supreme!
- Been involved in a car accident on the way to a conference on the Gold Coast and suffered some whiplash! (But more of that in another post).
Today, I want to share with you something fun and happye - my Initial Heart Swap.
This is a great swap run every year by Cheryll from Gone Stitchin'. Cheryll is a Swap Mama extraordinaire and this is always a fun exchange for Valentine's Day.
My swap partner was the lovely Sharmayne from Country Fragrance. She sent me this gorgeous handmade purple apron and some Guylian shell chocolates.
... and I sent her this cross stitched piece which spells out her name in the green letters (using the 'a' twice).
This is a freebie design from DMC, which you can find here. It was actually my first Happy Dance for the year. I also bought her a large chocolate heart and some little heart chocolates but I forgot to take a pic of them.
Well, I am about to go to work, so that is all for me for now although I would like to say a big hello to all of my new followers, it is so wonderful to have you join me and also, thanks to all of you who visit and comment on my blog. I am very behind on my blog reading and comment replying this week as I have been at a conference all week but I do appreciate and love you all.
Lastly, I just want to remind you to join in the fun of my Grow Your Blog Party Giveaway, entries close on Feb 15th, you can join in the fun on this post.
Oh and P.S. my next post will be about the Travelling Treasures - if you live in Australia you will have the opportunity to join in the fun - so please come back to check it out.
