Aunt Peaches Valentine Swap

Do you read the Aunt Peaches blog?  You should because it is hi-lar-i-ous!  Her posts often make me laugh out loud and her craft projects are like no one else’s. 

I recently signed up to be part of the Aunt Peaches Valentines Swap.  It’s a fairly simple concept.  You sign up, you get the addresses of three fellow swap-ees to whom you send a Valentine and in return, you get three Valentines from three different swap-ees.  No prizes, no reposting on Twitter and Facebook to increase your chances of winning; just the chance to send some random kindness into the world via a Valentine, and get a little something in return.

I recently wrote about going to a Valentine making get together, but I decided not to use those Valentines.  I wasn’t 100% happy with them.  I needed to make more so more I would make.  Then I had a great idea!  I was going to make a pendant that could be detached from the cards and worn on Valentine’s Day! 

I went online and found some Valentine graphics I could use on printable Shrinky Dinks.  I love my Shrinky Dinks.  If you don’t believe me, just check out this jewelry and these dog tags.  I kept the card fairly simple so the earrings would stand out.  I couldn’t resist a pun.  I wrote, “I'm de-pendant-- on you being my Valentine.”  Groan . . .

These are hitting the mail today.  I have a couple of overseas people so I hope they arrive by February 14th.  I can’t wait to get my Valentines!
