Firstly I posted this package of treats off to my swap partner kitty.eden (http://all-about-eden-saraeden.blogspot.com/) for the 'A Little Fabric, A Little Chocolate' Feb swap over on flickr.com. It was my first swap, so I will get better at it and hopefully become a Super Swapper eventually!
Something else I completed recently was a hair slide/clip tidy. The idea has been developing in my mind for several months and I finally got round to creating it. This is my first one, so no doubt it will be tweaked when I make my next one. I also need to make a couple of them for my girls, I'm forever finding hairclips all over the place.
The Hairclip tidy has little dotty hearts hanging from the bottom of the ribbons too (these are quite dominant in my creations recently - no reason why, I just like 'em).
I've also managed to make a couple of new name garlands, both slightly different to my norm. Firstly to the blue 'Colben' version, I added a matching heart at the end at my clients request. It looks sweet and I think I will try and incorporate more button hearts into my makes. I used to make felt hearts all the time (hence my name Heartfelt!), I feel more hearts coming soon! Watch out.
Most of you will notice from my creations that I rarely make anything in muted tones but for this 'Harry' garland I was given the freedom to make it in any colour I liked. So, for a new baby boy I decided to make this garland in soft beige, cream and a touch of baby blue. I really like my subtle side!
Other makes include some new 'Going Dotty' hanging letters. Amongst them are this blue 'J' and this pink 'A'. The 'A' is a new variation for me, made with dots and buttons. Both letters were for school friends of my eldest. The 'A' was for Amelie (neviepiecakes' eldest). I have to mention the amazing birthday cake that Natasha made, it was beautiful and tasted divine (chocolate with tonnes of choc chunks, mmmmmmm). See her wonderful yummy treats at www.flickr.com/photos/neviepiecakes.

This week I had the pleasure of making a felty creation to go into each of the party bags for the daughter of my lovely flickr pal Natasha, http://www.flickr.com/photos/neviepiecakes/ I had lots of fun making these pink and blue cupcakes with little heart tags for all the little girls lucky enough to be going to the craft party tomorrow (14th Feb - Valentines Day). I know Natasha has a very strong artistic genes and is very talented so I am so looking forward to seeing which activities she has planned and also very much looking forward to seeing the cakes (and hopefully tasting them too!!!).
