Weekend Swap w Southern Stars

Swap Mr. Bunny

The monthly meeting of my good friends and team members, SOUTHERN STARS, met on Saturday afternoon from 2 PM to almost 6 PM.  Much longer than usual BUT it was for a good reason ~ we were stamping our little heads off!  It was our FEBRUARY SHOE BOX SWAP!  I know you are thinking why in heavens name would we want to swap shoe boxes!  It was what was in the shoe boxes that was important ~ all the ingredients for each of us to make a special card that was in the box.  Each person made a card, brought their box and then (from 2 to 6!) everyone made the cards ~ eleven total!  WOW!  I will share those cards with you this week ~ you will love them.  The cute one above was created by Marie Shaughnessy.

A lot of Valentine's.....

A lot of Valentine's from Janie

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!  Janie Dodge sent me this picture earlier in the week and I asked her if I could save it for today.  She said yes and here is her story..............

Ella, Kaitlyn and I made 72 of these matchbook M&M valentines.  Each matchbook contains an snack size bag of M&M's. It took 2 of their 4 snow days.  I made the matchbooks and they colored the greeting on the outside.   

I was so proud that we had finished them two weeks ahead.  When they went to school they were told they could distribute the valentines, but not the candy inside.  That ruined Valentine's Day for them until I told them they now had a personal stockpile of M&M's that will last till Halloween (one per week).
