One More Valentine Swap


My Mom and I decided to swap Valentine goodies and we finally had time to get our goodies made!  You can read her post about the swap here.

I altered a candy box.  I put the dotee doll and dove heart chocolate inside.

My Mom has wanted a dotee doll of her own ever since I made one for a swap with one of my friends!

Through my blogging,  my mom has begun to realize that she is a creative person.  I’m so proud of you Mom!  She put together this wonderful basket of goodies!

A homemade loaf of cheesy french bread and jam were wrapped in a yard of super cute fabric, porcelain thimbles, marigold seeds (I have special memories of a marigold flowerbed at our home for many years when I was a child)…

…and Mom also made this sweet lavender sachet using fresh lavender from her garden.  I love the realistic looking roses and the humming bird!

I'm a wife to an awesome Army vet, and mother to four daughters and three step-sons! I love to sew. I learned to sew in 4H, and from my Oma while staying with her for a week or two in the summers as a young girl. I love to bake desserts. I would love to live on lots of land and own lots of animals.
