Valentine Swaps

Here are some recent things that I made for swaps that I participated in with the Marie group that I love so much. I have met so many wonderful, caring and thoughtful artists through this group, some of which have become very good and supportive friends. I just love this group and feel so blessed to be a part of it all.

I hosted a Soldered Valentine Pendant swap and below is the pendant I created for Melanie.

And of course there HAD to be a Valentine themed 4x4 book. I love putting these together and the smiles that they put on everyone's face is just a joy to me.

And above are my ATCs for another swap hosted by the amazing Terri G.
Hope you enjoyed the "love" and I will post more pics soon of the beautiful pendant that Melanie sent to me as well as a slide show of the 4x4 book. Enjoy your weekend!

Oh Rhonda, all you have made is gorgeous! I especially love the ATC with the couple dancing on the music paper!
Your soldered pendant is fab! I haven't tried that yet...But you do a great job with it.
Your 4x4 valentine books look delicious from here!

Thank you so much for sharing!

I love your swaps, they are just wonderful! I'm working on an art doll all made out of metal, "Marie in Metal" She's turning out better than I thought she was going to. Thanks for the great post and inspiration.

From one Marie fan to another. I adore everything in your post. I wish I was in on this amazing swap. That necklace is 2DIE4.
