rut, rooow.

Well, I've been woefully absent from my blog and for this i am sorry, i really have no good excuse, I've just been avoiding my computer in general lately, but I have been busy, so I have lots to tell!  
I went a little over the top on Valentines day (very time -consuming).  I LOVE vale
ntines day, not just because I have someone fabulous to share it with, but because how can you hate on a holiday that just wants to promote love!?!  I think its a great time to let everyone in my life know how much they mean to me.  So, I made valentines for everyone that I love.  For all of my out of town friends I made these little postcards that have a fabric heart cutout from some of my old dyeing projects.

For all of my local friends I made these cute little fabric bags and filled them up with home-baked cookies (they were white chocolate and craisin flavored, and really delicious)
To top off all of my crafting I made this really cool little vignette for a
 'Valentines craft swap' through the  Free People Blog . So I made this and sent it to a girl in Washington state and I recieved a great package from her (full of valentines jewels!)
The little birdies are needle-felted, which is my new favorite crafting project!  I was introduced to this kind of needle felting (the 3-d sort)  at a great store in Denver, called Fancy Tiger!

whew, all of this valentines crafts and im still not done, best save the rest for later (this is what I get for procrastinating so long!)
