I received a totally awesome package from sweety28303! So many really cool things!

The painted mason jar is so great! It's already got a candle and is in my craft room/living room! I have wanted one of those forever!

The pin cushion small mason jar was perfect for my sewing pins! As you can see it has already been put to good use! Now I won't worry about my 1 year old finding pins on the floor!

And even though it was over 70 here today I am even modeling my new crocheted hat which I might have to fight my daughters for!

Half the candy is probably already gone and the mailbox with all the stickers my 4 year old is in love with! I am sure I will be finding foam heart stickers for the next year in mysterious places!

I love the Kirby coaster and the little heart. My 4 year old took the heart to be a coaster for her baby dolls cup.

Thank you so much! I love it all! I couldn't have asked for a better partner! A

Oh and the crochet bordered hoop is hanging up already too. It was the perfect add on to our holiday decorations!

That crocheted hat is really cute! Will have to try replicating it for the little girls in our family.

another great pkg!

I like the look of the crochet border on the hoop -- even though I'm a novice crocheter,
I might have to give that a try!
Hopefully there's a tutorial somewhere online.....

:::Update::: The candy is pretty much gone! And we love it all! I have been circulating a picture of the mason jar amongst my friends and they are very jealous! I will have to make sure to lock up before I go anywhere so they don't try to get it!  Grin

Thank you again! It was a wonderful gift to receive!

Well, it is my turn to *squee*, although I can't do the pics. I hope my partner will. They are very marvelous things.

I will start with the smalls, and work up to the bigs. quaggy surely spoiled.

Let's start with the cutest little sock monkey card. Complete with wonderful Valentine cutout hearts, and little hearts pasted on.

Next up...4 boxes of sweethearts candies. They are chalky, but the kids love them, and I love reading the messages.

PEZ...Valentine style. I love those, and have a large collection. That one is mine. Be mine.

Three wonderful cards for me to share. I love the little ladybug one. That will go somewhere special. Probably on my wall  Roll Eyes Ooops. I am getting greedy.

5 kits of suncatchers. Love and hearts, and cupcakes with hearts. Those will be fun to paint with the kids.

Another thing that I forget what we all call them. It is a wooden box trinket, decorated very nicely. With the cutest key to my heart. And a wonderful rose.

Then there is a photo cube. Decorated very nice with backgrounds and neat Valentine stamps.

Now on to the big gifts {I was so totally spoiled}. The wonderful memory tray..quite large..7 panels that she added all kinds on goodies inside. I can't wait to hang that on the wall.

And the biggest gift of all..a wonderful trinket box that she added some sewing supplies inside, and the top is decorated so pretty, with roses, and a vintage clown, and crochet pieces, and other do-dads. I can smell that she probably painted it herself. It is crackle finish.

Thank you quaggy. kayrun told me you were a spoiler  Grin I'm not sure where I will hang your monkey card...oh. and quaggy also made my personal valentine with cute kissy squirrels. That will hang up somewhere special, too. I am cleaning house and wish to re-do my bulletin boards. These will work out nicely.

Sweet and Easy, my butt. You put a lot of effort into everything. I truley appreciate it all  Grin

and brandyk, can you share the recipes for fudge pots & cocoa spoons??  mmmmmmm

Both are Pinterest finds that I semi modified (not completely on purpose either time).
Fudge pots - https://www.verybestbaking.com/recipes/18456/carnation-famous-fudge/, but I didn't realize that recipe did not call for a 12 oz can until I had about 7-8 oz in the pot with sugar, so I winged it & poured it into little paper cups. Plus, in the bottom of some I put caramel ice cream topping Smiley

For the hot cocoa spoons, I used http://www.makeandtakes.com/hot-chocolate-on-a-stick, but I did not make my own marshmallows (sorry partners) & I put some in ice cube trays & some in a pan & cut them. I used all semi sweet chocolate chips & did not have baking chocolate so I subbed in cocoa powder & a couple extra tbs butter. P.S. This tastes really good just eaten off the spoon without the hot milk Smiley
