love is in the air....

Ha! I bet by the title you thought youd be bombarded with kitten pictures again! But not this time.. (not yet anyways!) I just wanted to show you some of the things I've been working on for swaps. I thought I was going to limit my swaps a bit to start the year.. but I jumped right in, there were a couple that i just didnt want to pass up!
Do you like the valentine pinkeep? This is a special swappy with a flickr friend.. I hope she likes it! I do.. I'm going to make myself one this weekend!

The next few pictures are for the heart box swap hosted by cathy of treasured heirlooms.. I had a lot of fun putting this all together! I hope my partner likes it!

Isnt that sweet little valentine girl adorable!? Thanks to my dear friend Elizabeth.. (it was hers!) I love that image!

(can you feel me rushing through this posting? I m in a hurry... gotta go to work..thank god its friday!) I'm planning a weekend full of creating! I have something living in my head that wants to get out! well, really several things.. but one is really wanting out!

These next two pictures are for my 3 partners in Heathers (speckled egg )Petite inspirations valentine boxes.. another really fun swap! I'm excieted because I am expecting lots of great valentinesy things in the mail now!

Heres that little girl again! love her! (and I love Elizabeth too!)

And... lastly... Yes.. love is in the air at my house.. I just cant get over these two. They keep on cracking me up. I still need to get a bigger box. I went to the store last night, but they didnt have any big ones. they are way to crowded in there when figgy decides to visit! OMG!!!
Arent the FREAKEN CUTE!!!
The babies are 6 days old today! these are yesterdays pictures.. a couple of them have eyes starting to open. and the tips of their ears are darkening up a bit.. one has a brown nose already! I still havent looked to see how many boys and girls.. They cry when I pick them up and frannie and figgy get very nervous about it! they are such good parents.. How am I ever going to take those babies away from them!?

Sorry for the hurried post.. but I only had a half an hour here, and now I have to run out the door! I will visit everyone this weekend! I promise!
hugs and HAPPY FRIDAY!!
♥♥♥omg... arent they freaken cute ♥♥♥

Your kitties are so funny and adorable. I am enjoying the pictures of them. Your swaps are pretty neat too. The pinkeep is a great combo of bird and color.

Persuaded said...

They are so far beyond adorable, I simply cannot believe it! I've never heard of a daddy-kitty like your Figgy♥

I have a picture of a hideously awful heinous kitty on my blog this morning. But he is a very bad kitty, not at all like your sweet lil thangs;)
