CLUELESS IN MT VERNON...(aka Valentines Up For Grabs!)

Greetings, dear readers!
Don't you just love the old Ann Landers column that started with the salutation of the would be advisee?
Dear Heart Broken in Hoboken...

Dear Miserable in Minneapolis...

and yes, such a column today would include:  Dear Clueless in Mt. Vernon! 
 Clueless? Why clueless you ask? Because I have been completely and utterly CLUELESS as to how the Dolly  Dingle Valentine Swap was meant to work. After relentlessly grilling poor "E", and after several emails that afforded her quite a good chuckle, I have discovered that I was to host my OWN exchange and include valentines to whomever I may choose. The list on E's blog was for "E", not all of the rest of us! ARGH! I am STILL confused, but I think I've figured out a way out of this debacle...
After setting aside my "always" exchange partners:
1. Elizabeth – Bluebird Papercrafts
2.Sandy – 521 LakeStreet
3.Joyce – Scrap for Joy
4.Sharon -My Vintage Studio
5.Julie Campbell - A Vintage Chic
6.Nan – Retired in Alaska
7.Tamera – The Stone Fence Cottage
8.Betty – She's Sew Pretty
9.Meri – Imagimeri
10. Diane - Saturday Finds

and family and friends, I have  10 valentines to exchange to the first who sign up here on comments. I will need your snail mail addy via email as well. 
Needless to say, much time and love have gone into each of these little paper hearts...I hope you find them to be a fun addition to your Valentines Day!

More soon! Huggles!
Paula Clare

Hey Girlfriend,

I'd still like one, and I've got one in the works for you. I want the prettiest one please......LOL I guess that means I want them all, cause you do awesome work missy. Oh, ok, I'll settle for one, but just this time.......;o) The one I'm doing for you is a little unconventional, but I think you'll like it.

Love ya'

Miss Paula, I am so glad that I am not alone at email E endlessly. She is such a deer and always answers. Well now, since you are such an overachiever I would love to swap with you as I missed the dolly dingle by just a pinch. send me an email with your address and I will send you my snail mail....I do hope it has a cowhand or two...Renee

Allison said...

I was wondering who you were trading with. I would love to trade with you. I still have your address. Not sure if you still have mine. Email me at if you don't have mine. Did you ever get the fall banner I sent you? Allison

Creative Breathing said...

Oh Paula! I am begging for the Valentine with the white outlined cowboy. Every one of these is so adorable. I can't stand it! I am so sorry for all the confusion with the swap and the tag swap, I am just swimming trying to catch up. Please visit my blog! E

Paula, I'd love one if still available! They're all so sweet!

Jane said...

Paula, I don't see your email address anywhere here, so could you please email me your address & I'll send you mine? That is, if I'm not too late to be included.

ps Don't count me twice - unless you want to send me TWO of your adorable valentines :)

Hi Paula, I just noticed in your Labels, debacle. YES! That is exactly what this tag swap has been. Please be sure and read Barncat/Always Home comment on my Valentine post for a huge laugh and to prove you were not alone in the confusion.
I have two individuals who would like to swap.
Patti and
They did not quite understand my directions on how to find you.
Hopeless in Ohio, Elizabeth

Am I too late to exchange Valentines with you Paula?


Tamera @ the Stone Fence Cottage said...

ROFL-- you had one of what a dear friend calls a "Menopausal Mind Moment" She says it happens when she gets a "power surge" (aka hot flash) and her brain overloads and blinks!! I know it's been happening to me! LOLOL---Will be making and sending a Valentine for you!! I LOVE your little cowboy Valentine's.

Michele said...

Wondering if I'm too late.
