Jane Smith of MiniFanaticus blog and I recently did a Valentine's Day swap. Here's how it went: Jane showed some amazing Valentine cupcakes, cookies, and chocolates on her blog and said she loved to do swaps. As soon as I saw that, I rushed with a comment on her blog: "Me, me, me, please! I want to swap!"
Fortunately for me, Jane said yes, before the snowstorms hit and before she got both ear and sinus infections. And even with all of that to deal with, Jane sent a huge number of mini masterpieces. Here's just a hint:
OK, now Flossy wants to show you the amazing gifts that Jane sent, all handmade by her. This is table #1, full of romantic Valentine's Day gifts:
Gorgeous flowers in a vase, a shabby chic jewelry box with beautiful jewelry inside, exquisite chocolates in a heart-shaped box, a perfume bottle with old romantic love letters, and a toy teddy bear, plus jars of Valentine candies! Here's a close-up on the jewelry box, chocolates, and love letters--amazing!
So, so beautiful! The jewelry box includes a "diamond" bracelet, earrings, and a big ring! It looks like Flossy might have a secret admirer! ;-) But wait, that's not all! Here's table #2, full of cookies that Jane "baked":
Don't they look scrumptious? Oh my! Flossy's feeling hungry! And here's that close-up photo from the top of this post again, highlighting some of the cookies and Jane's masterpiece cherry shortcake:
Yum yum! Flossy might have to start weighing herself regularly since Jane sent all of these amazing desserts. ;-) But wait, there's more:
Table # 3 is full of some extra wonderful wishes fulfilled by Jane: cherry-blueberry bundt cake, blueberry and cherry cheesecake, s'mores, donuts, Halloween treats, and more! Jane, you're amazingly talented AND incredibly generous! Thank you so, so much!!! Most of all, thank you for your sweet friendship. Big, BIG hugs!
BTW, Jane still hasn't received my Valentine swap gifts in the mail, but they should be there very soon. I had so much fun making Valentine gifts for Jane and look forward to her opening them. Look for an update soon.
For those who don't know Jane's blog, please check it out. She has a wonderful sense of humor, and she very generously shares how she makes her incredible clay creations. In fact, she showed how she made the chocolate chip cookies, cake, and cheesecake crust here--yay! Until next time, keep it fun! xoxo Jennifer
