I received two of the most wonderful presents today!

Not long ago, I participated in a craft swap with my swap partner, Cordelia. Shortly after the swap, she found out that it was my birthday and sent a whole new package of lovely goodies. How sweet is that? Pink, hearts, and sweets... 3 of my favorite things! I'm someone who loves Valentine decorations all year round. Plus, a couple of you recommended this Sally Hansen nail polish so I can't wait to give it a try.

Check out Cordelia's blogs, here and here. Her photography is amazing!

The second gift came from Rebecca, my pin-cushion swap partner. Isn't this pin-cushion adorable? I love it! For more cuteness, visit Rebecca's blog!

The pin-cushion swap was held through Freckled Nest, (with tutorial here). I choose to follow Leigh-Ann's tutorial and this is what I came up with:

pin-cushion: front

pin-cushion: back

Not as creative as Rebecca's, but still cute!

Hoping your week includes a present or two.
