LIFE IS NOT MEASURED BY THE NUMBER OF BREATHS WE TAKE, BUT BY THE MOMENTS THAT TAKE OUR BREATH AWAY.

Pink Saturday ~ Petite Inspiration Matchbox Swap

Happy Pink Saturday !!! Thank you Sweet Beverly for making this such a special event each week. I know personally I have made SO many good friends through Pink Saturday and I am SO grateful for her continued kindness and diligence in Hosting this each week :)

Well, I found myself in bed all week again. This last Flare up is really knocking me down ! Almost had Hubby take me to the ER the other night, the Costo has been so bad, it is like a non stop heart attack that wont go away. I had been trying to finish up special orders, swaps, a few gifties and am struggling with it all, ever feel that way ? My mind says " Carpe Diem !! " ( Seize the day ! ) but my body says, Uhhhh, you forgot you needed ME to do all of that stuff, lol !!!!

I joined Heather at Speckled Egg's " Petite Inspiration Box Swap " last month and MY what Fun !! We each had three partners and were to embellish three large matchboxes in a Valentine style and fill them with vintage and new Valentine-ish goodies. I had mostly finished the girls boxes weeks ago, when I got sick again, so I was REALLY late mailing on my end. Once again , I find myself at the receiving end of a LOT of Spoilage ! These three women are SUCH sweethearts, each one is such an incredible Artist and Lady :) It was a true Honor to be matched with them. :) Here is what they each created and sent to me :) Lucky ME !!!! :) :) :)


From Elyse :


From Kathy :

From Cerri :
Each box is SO perfect for ME, yet each one is different and reflects each of the girls. I can look at each box and see their personalities. :) I TRULY want to spend a week or two just playing with all of this wonderfully YUMMY stuff !!! Thank you, Thank you !!! I plan on keeping these boxes out year round to enjoy :)

I rescheduled another post for tomorrow to show you what I sent each of them, here is a sneak peek :) :
Well, that is my Pink Saturday this week. Hope yours was as Blessed !!!

Please go see Miss Beverly and visit all of the other Pink Posts this week, lots of Yummy Goodness out there :)

Hugs,

Rhea

Happy Pink Saturday Miss Rhea...
Sweetie I am so sorry to hear that you are still battling this darn bug. Please get well soon.

I loved the gifts that you received, so beautiful they all are. What treasures inside, my gosh. I loved every last little detail and every last little trinket. How wonderful of each of these gals.

I have not had very good luck with exchanges, so I am always tickled when I see that someone else had such a grand time.

Have a beautiful Pink Saturday. Please take care of yourself. I will be saying a few prayers for you sweetie. Country hugs and so much love...Sherry

First off, I'm so sorry that you've been feeling unwell again...prayers being sent. Does it seem to have a trigger?...or it just flares up when you least expect it?
Anyway, just had to tell you how pretty all of your matchboxes are...both sent and received are lovely. Hope you get a chance to play with all of your goodies soon. :)

I do love those matchboxes!! I always wonder what you are supposed to do with all the matches though!! I can never just throw something away which is a very bad thing!!

I did a swap with Elyse a few months ago and it was so fun!! She is just the sweetest!!

Love those little baby dolls!

I've been seeing that matchbox swap everywhere. What fun! I can't believe how many pretties can be packed into those little boxes. I've bought that Coccina glue from Cerri. It smells so good!
