Bee Mine Ornament Swap


I don't think there is anything more wonderful than bright sunshine on a snowy day. Everyone I have passed today has had a smile and a hello to share.


In my craft room as well, the sun is streaming through my window and onto the faces of the cutest Bee Mine Shakers I have ever seen. Holly from Cotton Pickin Fun has once again combined her talent with fabric with her love for felt and created the sweetest pattern for us to make.


Holly has asked if I would swap Valentine ornaments with her through the mail. Well, if I am making one, I might as well make twelve!


That's about how many it will take to fill my Valentine's Day tree!


I thought I would make medium sized Love Birds such as the little one on the left. He won't have feet, but he will have a hanger. I just love his sentimental wings!


This is a ONE-TO-ONE SWAP with no hard an fast rules. Hostess gifts? Thank you, "No". Your ornament is kind enough a gift.

What a lovely ornament swap. You are so clever. I know everyone is going to want to join. Your tree is going to be beautiful.

The shakers turned out adorable! I love your Bee Mine Valentine heart. Yours looks so much better, I might have to redo my heart :) I love, love, love the paperclay styrofoam shakers. I must put my Presidents' Day crafts on hold for a few days. Have a wonderful night,
Holly
