Sweetheart Pocket…

Jan 28, 2009

This little sweetheart pocket will be fun to fill with either sweet treats or a little trinket of some kind for your sweetheart. I think I am going to fill mine with both and place a few pieces of chocolate and a little necklace inside for Terri’s Valentine’s Day surprise.
