I love Hearts!

There has been a distinct heart theme round here lately, firstly I have been very busy making these little hearts which I sell in my shop. Although we are primarily a curtain and blind shop, being by the coast, there are naturally a lot of tourists, especially in the Summertime. Whilst we don't have much to offer visitors in the way of souvenirs, I do like to make up a few bits which sell really well in the holiday season.

Secondly there has been the heart swap, and my swap partner was Gemma from Deravelled - I received some lovely goodies including some lovely cards which Gemma had made and some charms and stickers so I can make some of my own - there was also some lovely smelling soap slices and the pretty black and white handmade heart you can see in the picture,

Thank you Gemma - I love everything!
I have a busy week ahead, It is my eldest son's birthday on Thursday (he will be 11) and it is also my last full week at work before I have some nice time off around Easter - I have lots I want to do, things to make, books I want to read and places I want to go - I love Easter time and can't wait

I too love hearts - infact I named my blog after them!! I love your blog, Ive been a bit of a lurker for a while, but I thought I'd stop by and say "hello". I think you aare originally from my neck of the woods from reading your previous posts.
