Heart from the Heart Swap

I got myself involved in the

A Heart From The Heart Swap 

over at my freind

 Debbie's Mosaic Magpie Blog 

you have to make a stuffed heart to fit a small flat rate box. 
And style, any color, any way you want.

I haven't done hand work for some time so
I thought I shall try this out...
so it began...
I cannot believe I have no sketch to go from...
thats my norm in paper crafts ya know...

So here is my rough layout


With a few fun things on the side
She is made from reclaimed fabrics
A few skirts
A few jackets
Antique beads
And reclaimed ribbons
Its a place to start



I worked a couple weeks on this project...
which is not normal for me
and I loved my results


lots of small little details


Antique beads from my friend Alice,
  some cute ribbon roses
a little bit of handwork


Some Glitz and Glamor
and a beautiful necklace
made of pearls and gems stones
the gem donated from my freind Sandy


And a small message for my new blogland freind


I told Debbie I think I just might have
seperation anxiety from this pretty girl
She is so my style, But I pass her along
Because I know I will recieve in return
Heart of matching loveliness
to swoon over and enjoy.
thanks Deb for letting me join
and to my new blogland friend
I hope you love her as I do
From my heart to yours.

Creative is the word that comes to me as I look at the development of your heart for our swap. Such a lovely work from the heart.
