Be Still My Heart!


This year's Valentine swap in our community could easily have been called "Be Still My Heart" because that is exactly what I said each time a package arrived on my doorstep, a wonderful expression of Valentine's Day inside. Here are some of the wonderful handmade items I received this year starting with Sandy, 521 Lake Street, adorable garland I shall hang every year.


Vivian, Viv's Whimsy


The unexpected gold makes this Valentine extra special!


Cindy, Prairie's Edge Farm


Elaine


Kimber, Ga Ga Dolls


Holly, Damita's Pretty Wrap

Any place with you in it would be Home with a capital H. An empty home is just a shell until it is filled with love and the busy lives of those who inhabit it. =D

A buyer would want everything in your craftroom to go with the house!

Everything is so cute. I really like the idea of the little valentines spilling out. So cute. You are so happy in your space! Is that stained glass in the ruby red heart?

What wonderful, lovely Valentines you have! Each one is just so special. They look amazing in your craft room. I know exactly what mean by looking at your house through potential buyers eyes. I tend to do that all the time- we have moved and sold so many homes it is almost second nature to think like that :) Have a wonderful day enjoying all of your pretty Valentines, Holly

You are truly blessed with a lovely creative space...then you instill some of that creative air into everything you make...we are then blessed when we see it on your blog...& if we have something you have made in our home we are doubly blessed! : )Patti M

I'm sure your home and craftroom are filled with special things. The artwork in your craftroom is very special and gives us all such inspiration.

E- One of the gals in my Valentine's Swap said that all of her crafting techniques are inspired by "The Great Elizabeth of Creative Breathing Of Course".
I thought that was really sweet... and true for so many of us!
It's no wonder so many hearts are sent your way at this time of year!
