Handmade Valentines Swap

           Remember those early school years when you made and received Valentines and even decorated shoe boxes to hold them all in? Well, for the last 8 years, I've been making and swapping old fashioned Valentines with the farmgirls at Mary Jane's Farm. I was a tad late in posting the swap this year so someone else beat me to it, but I have many loyal swappers who look forward to this one each year but our number is a even dozen, down from the usual 30 plus, but that is ok, won't cost as much in postage! But, I thought some of you might like to join us? It's easy really, all you have to do is make a valentine card for each lady on the master list. And like I said, were only at 12 so far, the deadline to join in is Jan. 18th, so if you'd like to make and receive valentines, just email me your name and address and your in! Below was last year's goodies, so much talent, some even made us a bookmark, added candy and got real creative, but the fun is expressing yourself and then checking the mailbox for all the love.....
       Last week was very long...........the weather was record breaking COLD, below 0 many times, just not our normal winter weather. Our whole well house froze up, breaking pipes and leaving us without water for 2 days, but some had it worse. But, this week is much better, sunny and above freezing, even hit 61 on Sunday! That was nice, wish it would last longer than a day, but that's life in Oz! Cold or not, a handmade valentine is my cure for the winter blahs, staying creative is one of my goals for 2014 so express yourself and join us!
