Craft Swap

I am really excited to share with you about a fun thing that I am taking part in. The Great Create, which is a craft swap. Melissa over at my house is created this and anyone can participate. You still have time to swap in the February if you like. Take a look at the above link to get more information.
For the last week I have been working on my my craft for the January swap. I have hand embroidered a picture. I'll share pictures tomorrow when I get it framed. It's precious, if I do say so myself. I also made one for a me and a special family member. Can't wait for her to get it. I took the idea from a craft I saw on Flamingo Toes and added my own little twist. I haven't embroidered like this in years and it was so much fun. I had forgotten how much I loved it. Many of you know that I machine embroidery all day for a living so I wasn't really sure that I was going to enjoy it.  But it was AWESOME. I already have plans for some other projects. Not sure what I am going to do for my craft next month but I know it will be something to do with Valentines Day, my second favorite holiday, with Christmas being the favorite. One reason is, it's my birthday! That's right I'm a sweetheart!!!!!!
I hope if you are even a little crafty that you will swap with us.
Have a wonderful Sunday and I hope you will be in the Lord's house.
