Valentine Swap Box

I decided to join a Valentine Shop box exchange for the first time off of It was so fun picking things out for my partner. I couldn't find a Valentine Box, so I decided to make and decorate a box.

I had Cindy from Angel Heart Designs Go to her store and see all the lovely things she is making. Lots of new surprises. I was so excited when I saw that my partner was her. We have talked on the phone a few times, but now it was fun asking her little things what she likes to get to know her better.

This is what she send me and it was all wrapped up pretty just like it was Christmas. I got to unwrap each item with different tissue paper and little bags they came in also. I was in shock when I saw every thing she had gotten me. Take a look and you can see why. You can not see all of the things well and I apologize so, I will tell you everything that came in them. First I opened the large box and saw the pink tissue paper. Loved it... Then I saw the bags and boxes full of gorgeous things. I got a handmade ceramic soap dish that says Bonjour on it that I loved on her site, some green ribbon with roses on it, silver ribbon, Heart Stickers, ceramic roses and teapots and bird fired for me to paint,tin foil in silver and pink, glitter heart shape tablet,lots and lots of buttons, material cut in the shape of hearts in many styles,votive candle, a 5 1/2 x 4 handmade plaque that says Love Love on it to hang in my room,shopping girls sugar-free Berry mints, Large Dove Candy Bar, Heart shaped magnets and one to tie on a package, also one that says ' Always Kiss Me Goodnight which she knows that's my favorite saying, a bar of angel wings soap and a gorgeous Box. Then to top it off a 15.00 Starbucks card. That was one of my favorite things. A girl can;t own enough Starbucks cards to treat herself when shes out and about. THANK YOU so much Cindy. I LOVED everything.
I have tryed everything I knew to get the pictures to be in the order that I opened them, but no such luck. Please scroll way down for comment. I don't know why it went to the bottom of the page. Thank you..
