Crafting Valentines

 I have been hard at work making Valentines.  Valentine cards, Valentine Candy boxes, valentine Spoolies and even Valentine bracelets.  These photos are all of items I have made in the last couple of weeks. (accept for the boxes as that will be a post later)  JoAnne of Vintage Dragonfly hosted a swap which consisted of exchanging what she called Valentine Spoolies.  Some great examples came from Lynne Trash to treasure art  and they are beautiful. . . . . .
 She said do up some spoolies, but don't exactly copy these.  I always need to do something different anyway.  So here are the ones I came up with.

This one will be sent to my partner Jo.  I used lots of glass glitter and even little bits of broken pink mercury glass.  I used an old tiny heart shaped box, and two old spools.  I envisioned

the back side.

  I decided to use some vintage wooden spools and some cute small old bottles all put together to form a Valentine Spoolie.  I really had fun creating these.  The first will be sent to my partner.  And then I just really wanted to keep one for myself. 

  
Then I got busy making Valentine cards.  I love paper crafting.  I also had 2 partners for a Valentine Candy box swap, so I decorated candy boxes, but that will be for a new post later.  











                               I even did up 2 valentine bracelets for the swaps I have done.  I hope you all have fun making Valentines.  Be sure to come back as there will be more posts for Valentine's day!
