Hearts of Friendship Swap

Last month my blog friend Tammy invited me to participate in a small Valentine's Day swap called Hearts of Friendship Swap. We were asked to create a heart ornament in a medium of our choice and the only requirement was to include a quotation about friendship. The box of ornies arrived at my door earlier this week and I could hardly wait to tear open the box to see what everyone had made.
Tammy - "Friends meet you in a tender place where it's safe to risk your heart."
Sandy - "Right next door or miles apart, friends are always close at heart."
Vivian - "Make new friends but keep the old, one is silver and the other gold."
Vivian also sent us this sweet bonus heart ornament!
Lee - "Each friend represents a world in us."
Ruth - "Friends live in your heart."
Carla - "Friends are the stitches that hold our hearts together."
Natalea - "A friend is someone who sees through you and still enjoys the view."
Grace - "A friend is one of the best things you can be and the greatest thing you can have."
Me - "A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words."
I decided to hang my ornaments from the chandelier in my craft room, so the lighting isn't the best in the photos above. Tammy has posted some more detailed pics of all the swap ornaments here. I really enjoy these small exchanges because they are totally manageable to complete. It's so much fun to receive these small works of art from people whose work you admire. And the idea of including quotes about friendship was a fun addition. Wasn't it amazing that all the quotations were unique with no duplicates!
